Natural Treatment of Scanty Periods with Homeopathy

Scanty or light periods is a condition medically known as hypomenorrhea. While scanty periods occurring once in a while should not be a cause of concern, any changes in the menstrual flow accompanied with pelvic pain for several months should be brought to a doctor’s notice. Homeopathic medicines for scanty periods offer a natural solution to the problem. Pulsatilla, Sepia, and Graphites are the top homeopathic remedies that are used to treat scanty periods. Homeopathy can help improve the menstrual flow by addressing the underlying cause that is contributing to scanty periods.

Homeopathic medicines for scanty periods.

The leading causes of scanty periods include emotional stress, excessive exercise, being underweight, an eating disorder where a person has intense calorie restriction, hormonal imbalance, using oral contraceptive pills (OCP’s), using intrauterine devices (IUD’s), polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), anovulatory menstrual cycles, and hyperthyroidism. In some cases, a woman may experience scanty periods during the perimenopausal period (transition into menopause). A rare but possible cause of scanty periods is Asherman’s Syndrome (formation of scar tissue in the uterus cavity.)
