SUPPRESSION OF THE MENSES--AMENORRHOEA. 

 

By suppression is meant a disappearance of the menses after they have 

become established, and may be either acute or chronic. It is caused 

by cold caught during the flow, by exposure to night air or by wetting 

the feet; fear, shocks, violent mental emotions, anxiety, fevers and 

other acute diseases. Chronic suppression may be either a consequence 

of the acute, or caused by delicate health; also, from diseases of the 

ovaries or womb. It may also be occasioned by an imperforate hymen, in 

which case it must be cut open by a physician. 

 

 

TREATMENT. 

 

When the suppression is caused by some disease in the system, that 

disease must be cured before the menses will return. For sudden 

suppression, use the warm sitting-bath or foot bath. Apply cloths wet 

in warm water to the lower part of the abdomen, and drink freely of 

warm water. If the suppression is chronic and the patient is delicate, 

in the interval between the menses use the shower or the full bath of 

cold or tepid water, rubbing the body briskly with a coarse towel, 

especially around the abdomen, loins, and genital organs. 

 

As soon as the discharge has ceased, a warm hip bath will generally 

bring it on. If there is much inflammation of the uterus give the 

following: 

 

Tincture aconite leaves, Two drams; 

Sweet spirits of nitre, One ounce; 

Simple syrup, Three ounces. 

 

Dose: One teaspoonful every two or three hours. 

 

If the discharge cannot be brought on, wait until the next period. A 

few days before the term the bowels should be freely opened and kept 

open until the period for the discharge has arrived. A pill of aloes 

and iron is one of the best that can be given. Give from one to three 

pills daily. If there is no evident reason for the discharge not 

appearing, such as pregnancy, inflammation of the neck of the womb, 

and the woman is suffering from the suppression, use the following: 

 

Caulophyllin, One dram; 

Extract aconite, Eight grains; 

Aloes, Ten grains; 

Sulphate of iron, Ten grains. 

 

Make into forty pills. Dose: Two or three pills, taken night and 

morning. 

 

The remedies should always be taken a few days before the period 

arrives for the menses. If the chronic suppression is the result of 

any acute disease, the health must first be re-established, otherwise 

it would be wrong to force the menses. When this has been done, 

immediately before the return of the period a warm hip bath should be 

taken every night for six nights, and one of the following pills taken 

three times a day: 

 

Fresh powdered ergot of rye, Fifty grains; 

Barbadoes aloes, Twelve grains;
