Ayurvedic Management of Abnormal Uterine Bleeding in Uterine Fibroid

  • General Arts and Humanities

Summary Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) is the most common gynecological problem and is often accompanied with uterine fibroid. Very limited options are available in biomedicine for the AUB. In this reported case, AUB associated with stasis dermatitis was managed on the line of treatment of Vataja Yonivyapada with satisfactory results. This is a case of AUB in uterine fibroid associated with stasis dermatitis in the left lower limb of a 39-year-old female. Gokshuradi Guggulu 750 mg, Shatavari Churna - 2 g, Gairika - 500 mg, and Mukta Shukti Pishti - 500 mg were given twice a day for 18 months, Pushyanuga Churna - 2 g, Chandraprabha Vati - 250 mg, and Arsha Kuthara Rasa 250 mg twice a day for 8 months, and Gokshura churna - 2 g twice a day for 14 months were given to her as oral medication. Jatyadi taila was applied locally twice a day on affected area for 17 months. Four sets of Anuvasana Basti (medicated oil enema), one set of Raktamokshana (therapeutic bloodletting) with Alabu, and three sets of Raktamokshana with Shringa were also adopted in 14 months of treatment duration. After 14 months of treatment, the size of the bulky uterus was reduced from 108 mm × 76 mm × 70 mm in May 2018 to 102 mm × 64 mm × 55 mm in May 2019 and from 7.0 to 6.6 mm in endometrium thickness. The fibroid was resolved, and abnormal bleeding was arrested. This case demonstrates that Ayurveda oral medication and Panchakarma based on the management of Vataja Yonivyapada may be useful in AUB associated with stasis dermatitis.
