How homeopathy can alleviate period symptoms

Updated: Aug 31, 2022

Homeopathy can help regulate your periods and alleviate many unwelcome symptoms that accompany them

While treating a patient she exclaimed that she had had 'the best period of her life!' During her homeopathic treatment she had remedies geared towards her chronic hormone related complaint and also embarked on a programme of healthy eating, building in relaxation to her routine and eliminating toxins from her home.

Irregular, painful, absent, heavy periods and associated symptoms such as migraines, anaemia, acne, mood swings and fertility issues are something I see regularly in my clinic.

Holistic treatment

A woman’s hormone system is complex, sensitive and intelligent and reproductive hormones influence all organs in the body. Your period and all it’s characteristics are a reflection of your overall health and therefore period symptoms often respond beautifully to a holistic treatment like homeopathy.

Many of my patients - teenagers, women in their 20s – 40s and those going through peri-menopause are experiencing debilitating hormonal symptoms that affect their overall quality of life, their self-image and relationships.

Homeopathic remedies

Although homeopathy treats the person, not the condition, there are many homeopathic remedies with an affiliation for female hormones – Sepia, Lachesis, Sabina, Pulsatilla, Natrum Mur, to name a few and when prescribed according to your own unique symptom picture alongside other lifestyle and dietary changes they can make a profound difference – ‘I have had the best period of my life!’.

A normal period is different for everyone but huge blood loss, cycle irregularities and severe pain are not normal. In my practice I usually see periods return to 4 week cycle after 3 – 6 months of treatment.


If period pain is an issue with no other symptoms or underlying conditions there are remedies that you can prescribe yourself and purchase at Boots or health food shops:

  • MAG PHOS: your symptoms are improved by the application of heat (hot water bottle) and bending double. The pain is shooting, spasmodic and eases once you start bleeding.

  • COLOCYNTHIS: your pain is worse when eating or drinking, you are restless and want warmth. You may experience awful diarrohea and want to hold onto your abdomen.

  • SEPIA: you experience a horrible dragging/bearing down sensation and you feel like everything will fall through your vagina. There are sharp clutching pains and you feel worn down and worn out.

  • BELLADONNA: when you have a cutting pain from hip to hip with spasmodic contractions of the uterus. You may have a dragging sensation in your loins and your period blood will be bright red and gushing. You really prefer to be left alone in a dark room.

  • CHAMOMILLA: helps when you are really irritable with your pain. You might experience hot sweats and intolerable pain that makes you cross, impatient and hard to please.


There are literally hundreds of remedies that can help with period related symptoms on a physical, emotional and mental level that have no side-effects. Some you can go to yourself, others will come from comprehensive case taking and prescribing based on your complete case history.
