The slipping out of the uterus — the womb or child-bearing organ — into the vagina is referred to as a prolapsed uterus. The reason behind Uterine Prolapse is weakened muscles and ligaments that keep the uterus in place. The muscles get weakened because of various reasons. It could be after vaginal delivery, after menopause, because of heavy weightlifting, obesity, chronic cough, chronic constipation or pelvic tumors. All these factors result in the uterus getting displaced from the normal position, leading to prolapse. A prolapsed uterus results in symptoms like heaviness in the pelvic region, bearing down in the pelvis, urine retention or involuntary passage of urine and bowel symptoms like constipation, or the frequent urge to pass stool or poop. Homeopathic remedies for uterine prolapse can provide complete cure for the condition and the remedies, which are totally safe with zero side effects, can be really beneficial for the treatment of Uterine Prolapse.
Top Homeopathic Remedies for Uterine Prolapse
Uterine Prolapse can be completely treated with the help of Homeopathy medicines. The medicines, which are made from natural substances, help in providing strength to the loose and weak muscular and ligament structure of the pelvis. As the muscles and ligaments regain strength, they tighten, pull back and hold the uterus at its proper place. Homeopathy remedies for Uterine prolapse can cure the early stages of Uterine Prolapse but in the last degree cases of Uterine Prolapse when the whole uterus comes out of the vagina, surgical intervention is the only way out. Sepia, Lilium Tigrinum, Murex, Lappa Articuma, Fraxinus Americana, Podophyllum, Helonias and Rhus Tox are the top remedies.
1. Sepia: Top Remedy for a Prolapsed Uterus
Sepia is a natural medicine that is highly efficient in treating Uterine Prolapse. Sepia is considered the best medicine for the cure of a prolapsed uterus. Go for this medicine if you experience a constant bearing down sensation in the pelvic region — that is, feeling the sensation as if the uterus is dragging in the downward direction and is about to come out. Crossing the lower limbs may prove slightly helpful to decrease the bearing down sensation. A few women with a prolapsed uterus also suffer from vaginal discharge with itching and such patients can also recover with the use of Sepia. This medicine yields excellent results in women at a menopausal age where the womb is in a relaxed condition with weak muscle support. Uterine Prolapse at menopause may be accompanied by hot flushes with excessive sweating.
2. Lilium Tigrinum: For Uterine Prolapse with Constant Urge to Pass Urine or Stool
Lilium Tigrinum is the second best medicine after Sepia that proves effective in the treatment of a prolapsed uterus. This remedy is very beneficial in women suffering from Uterine Prolapse who have the constant urge to pass urine or stool. This is most of the times accompanied by a distended feeling in the pelvis. Women requiring Lilium Tigrinum also feel a dragging sensation in the pelvis. Supporting the vulva or taking rest brings about a slight relief in the dragging sensation. Lilium Tigrinum can also be used where the muscle supporting the uterus lacks the required tonicity, resulting in a displaced (retroverted or uterus tilted backward) or a prolapsed uterus.
3. Murex: For Bulky, Enlarged Uterus, or Uterus pushed out of Pelvis
Murex is of great help where the uterus is bulky, enlarged and is pushed out of the pelvis. Women experience a bearing down feeling in the pelvis and need to tightly cross legs to prevent the bearing down sensation. Murex also proves useful in decreasing the pain during periods due to a displaced uterus. In case of an inflammatory condition of the uterus due to a prolapsed uterus, Lilium Tigrinum can be helpful. If the patient has an enhanced sexual desire, then it confirms the use of this medicine.
4. Lappa Arcticuma: Excellent Remedy for Uterine Prolapse
Lappa Arcticum is a rare and lesser known medicine but its use can work wonders in treating Uterine Prolapse. Lappa Arcticum can be used in all those cases where the muscles, ligaments and the tissues in pelvis lack tonicity and are relaxed to a greater extent, resulting in a displaced or prolapsed womb. Here, Lappa Arcticum is of great help in providing the tonicity in pelvic tissue. The woman may also feel soreness in the uterine region. The woman feels worsening of symptoms on walking and standing.
5. Fraxinus Americana: For Uterine Prolapse with Tumor
Fraxinus Americana is a rare medicine that can be used when tumors like fibroid uterus are associated with uterine prolapse. The uterus is also enlarged. Bearing down pains in the pelvis are always present.
6. For Uterine Prolapse after delivery
After a vaginal delivery, the uterus can prolapse due to trauma and overstretching of muscle support in the pelvis, that holds the womb in an accurate position. Such cases of Uterine Prolapse following vaginal delivery can be treated with medicines Podophyllum, Sepia, Helonias and Rhus Tox. The choice of medicine out of these is made only after a complete case study of the patient.
7. For Prolapse Resulting from Lifting Heavy Weights
Rhus Tox and Calcarea Carb are equally good medicines for Uterine Prolapse after lifting heavy weights. Again, the selection of medicines is solely made as per the individual case.
8. For Bladder and Bowel Complaints with Uterine Prolapse
A prolapsed and displaced uterus can result in bladder and bowel symptoms. The bowel symptoms include a constant urge to pass stool or constipation. The bladder symptom is mainly the involuntary passage of urine. To cure the constant urge to go to the toilet and pass stool, Nux Vomica is of great help. For treating constipation due to a prolapsed uterus, Stannum is very beneficial. For treating the involuntary passage of urine due to Uterine Prolapse, Ferrum Lodatum is an ideal medicine.
