Menstrual Problems-Ayurvedic Medicines-Natural Treatment


Menstruation is the term used for the natural monthly cycle in the female body.

The unfertilized eggs rupture and are ejected out of the reproductive system along with blood and tissue cells. This flow happens once in a month and it lasts for 3-5 days.

Menstrual problems mainly include various disorders like amenorrhea, menorrhagia, dysmenorrhea, (all related to irregular menstrual periods), premenstrual syndrome, endometriosis etc.

Ancient classical texts of Ayurveda have mentioned a vast number of drugs which helps in curing the menstrual disorders and is beneficial for the reproductive system. Such herbs facilitate the health of the reproductive system right from menarche to menopause.

By having a healthy reproductive system one can lead a healthy life, free from complications and beget a healthy child.

When the menstruation has not occurred even when the girl is nearing 16 years of age, it is termed as amenorrhea. In simple terms it is the absence of menses. It is of two types:

  • Primary amenorrhea
  • Secondary amenorrhea

Primary amenorrhea may be caused due to hormonal imbalance, genetic abnormality etc.

Secondary amenorrhea is the absence of menstruation during pregnancy, lactation and menopause. It is a physiological one and not pathological.

Other than hormonal imbalance certain other conditions that cause both the types of amenorrhea are stress, unusual weight gain or weight loss, thyroid defects, ovarian cysts or polyps, improper diet and improper lifestyle.


When the menstrual flow is heavy and if it lasts more than 7 days it is termed as menorrhagia. If the flow is for 7 days but it is not heavy then it can be considered as a normal period.

The various causes of menorrhagia are hormonal imbalance, PCOD (poly cystic ovarian disease), too much of stress, improper diet, hectic life schedule especially during periods, fibroids, thyroid conditions etc.


Dysmenorrhea is nothing but painful menstruation.
It is of two types:

  • Primary
  • Secondary.

In primary dysmennorhea the symptoms may include: nausea, low back pain, dizziness, vomiting etc. this is commonly seen in young girls and these symptoms are seen in every month for the first two days.
Secondary dysmennorhea is commonly seen in the older women and it may be due to uterine fibroids, PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) or due to any other pelvic pathology.


Endometriosis is the term that reflects the abnormality of endometrium. It is a tissue that lines the inside of the uterus and it sheds along with the unfertilized egg during every menstrual period. But in case of endometriosis, this tissue is found outside of the uterus like on the ovaries, fallopian tubes or other parts of the pelvic cavity. This leads to symptoms like painful menstruation and dyspareunia (painful sex),

The natural herbs present in 'Female Support' helps in all the menstrual difficulties and acts as a natural tonic for the reproductive system. It gets rid of symptoms like painful menstruation, irregular menses etc. it is an excellent remedy for hormonal imbalance and cures the symptoms in a natural way. It is a wonderful medicine for ovarian cysts as well as uterine fibroids. On the whole it is a good rejuvenator for the female reproductive system.

types of dysmenorrhea

According to Ayurvedic theory, painful or difficult menstruation (dysmenorrhea) can be divided into three types: vata, pitta, and kapha. lt is important to know as specifically as possible what the problem is (vata, pitta, or kapha) in order to treat it effectively. Please note that these difficulties are inde?pendent of one's own constitutional type. That is, somebody with a pitta constitution could be having vata-type menstrual prob?lems. So read the following descriptions carefully and compare them to your own experience.

Vata - More pain before the onset of men?struation, bloating, lower abdominal pain, lower back ache, constipation, cramps, and insomnia are associated with vata-type dys?menorrhea. Menstrual flow tends to be scanty.

Pitta - Congestive dysmenorrhea is a pitta problem. Pitta creates congestion, inflam?mation, and irritation. The breasts become tender, the bladder becomes sensitive, and there can be a burning sensation while passing urine. There may be hot flashes and irritability. It may lead to profuse menstrual flow.

Kapha- In kapha-type menstrual difficul?ties, there is also congestion, and pain occurs more in the later part of the menstrual period, associated with white discharge, bloating, water retention, feelings of heavi?ness, lethargy, and drowsiness. The woman feels like sleeping during the daytime.

treatments for dysmenorrhea

Now for some effective treatments for each type of disorder.

Vata - For vata-type menstrual discomfort, make an herbal compound of

  • ashwagandha
  • vidari
  • tagar

Mix equal proportions of these herbs together, and take 1 teaspoon of the mixture with warm water after lunch and dinner.

Also effective for relieving vata-type cramps and discomfort is applying castor oil on the lower abdomen.
Take 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel with 2 pinches of black pepper 3 times a day until the cramps subside.

Pitta - Women with pitta-type symptoms should use

  • shatavari 2 parts
  • kama dudha 1/8 part
  • musta 1 part

This formula is effective for pitta. type menstrual pain. Take 1'/2 teaspoon of this mixture twice a day with warm water, after meals. You will also find application of some coconut oil on the lower abdomen quite soothing.

Kapha. Kapha-type menstrual problems can be effectively treated by using a mixture of

  • punarnava 1/2 part
  • manjistha 1/2 part
  • trikatu 1/8 part

Take about '/2 teaspoon of this mixture twice a day, after lunch and dinner, washed down with warm water.
Application of mustard oil and castor oil (half and half) to the lower abdomen will also help with kapha-type menstrual discomfort

Note: This may be a good time to remind you of an important Ayurvedic principle. If you are finding that your self-treatment is not working or even appears to be making the condition worse, you may have made a mistake in your diagnosis of the problem.
Don't give up! Remember, you are not a trained Ayurvedic diagnostician. Simply reassess the situation and try a different line of treatment.

for all body types

Herbal Remedies - Ayurvedic medicine includes a series of powerful herbal com?pounds based on the herb guggulu. In addi?tion to other healing qualities, these compounds are especially good for regulat?ing menstruation. For vata-type pain, use triphala guggulu or yogaraj guggulu. Pittas may use kaishore guggulu. Kaphas will do best with punarnava guggulu. In each case, take one tablet twice a day. These tablets are gener?ally available from sources of Ayurvedic herbs (see Resources).

Another universal remedy that should bring some relief from menstrual pain is to roast some cumin seeds in an ungreased pan until they smell pungent. (It will just take a few minutes.) When they are cool, chew about 1 teaspoon slowly, and follow with one tablespoon aloe vera juice.

For Excessive Menstrual Flow. A tea made of raspberry leaves and hibiscus flow?ers (equal amounts, 1 to 2 teaspoons of herbs per cup of water) is often quite effective.

You might also try drinking a cup of coconut water (the natural juice inside a fresh coconut) with t/2 teaspoon rock candy powder or natural sugar added.

Eating about 10 to 20 fresh raspberries on an empty stomach, up to 2 or 3 times a day, may be helpful.

strategy to prevent menstrual problems

Perhaps more important than all these pain remedies is a strategy to prevent menstrual problems. You can follow this strategy quite easily, effectively, safely, and inexpensively.

Aloe Vera Gel. For the entire week before you expect your period to start, take 1 table?spoon of aloe vera gel, 3 times a day. This will help prevent all types of menstrual pain and discomfort.

Dietary Guidelines. Throughout the month, follow the dietary guidelines for your constitutional type.

Yoga Positions. Throughout the month, spend a few minutes every day on the yoga postures recommended for your body type. Yoga asanas are not recom?mended during the menstrual period. Just rest, read, and relax as much as possible.
If you follow these recommendations, your menstrual problems may soon be noth?ing but a memory.
