Do you have heavy menstrual periods from endometriosis or fibroids?
Does this sound like you?
My 43-year-old client started having heavy menstrual bleeding six months ago. Her entire lower abdomen hurt as someone punched her. Her abdominal pains felt better when lying down in the fetal position and felt worse when walking. Her lower abdominal pains would come and go, and she would always have less pain when she was actually bleeding. When she did have her period, she had low back pain that went across the hips and down her legs. She had her period every three weeks with dark red clots, and it would last 14 days. Her doctor diagnosed her as having endometriosis and borderline anemic.
While taking her case history, I asked what happened six to ten months ago in her life. My client shared that she has been under a lot of stress, especially financially. A year ago, she separated from her alcoholic husband, and she is raising her five children on her own. Her husband has not given her any child support since she left him. To top it off, her oldest daughter miscarried a couple of months ago.
My client has been experiencing low self-esteem and lack of confidence in being able to raise her children without any financial support from her husband for the last ten months. She does have a job, but that barely pays for the household expenses. She fears that she will have to go back to her alcoholic, abusive husband if she can’t make it on her own. “It took all I have to get the nerve to leave him, finally,” she told me.
After recording her symptoms, I put her on the homeopathic remedy Lycopodium 6c to take daily. Lycopodium was selected to help address her emotional state (i.e., lack of confidence, low self-esteem) of being on her own and the abuse she had suffered from her husband when he drank, which I see as what caused her to have the endometriosis. Along with taking Lycopodium, she took Hyland’s Cell Salt Ferr Phos 6x four tablets three times a day to increase her iron levels. I also had her take various homeopathic remedies acutely when she had her period. My client took the homeopathic remedy Phosphorus 200c to help address the gushing red blood when she stood up and Sabina 30c when she was passing clots. When she had the low back pain, which radiated out to her hips and down her legs, she would take the homeopathic remedy Kali Carbonica 30c. My client took the homeopathic remedy Magnesium Phosphoricum 30c when her menstrual cramps eased if heat was applied to her lower abdomen. She took China Officinalis 30c when she had her period to help keep her iron levels up from the heavy bleeding.
My client’s next month’s period was a 30-day cycle, which was much better than the three-week cycle she had had the last six months. Her period only lasted seven days; instead of the usual fourteen days of bleeding. She only needed to take Phosphorus once a day and Sabina one to two times a day when bleeding. The third month she reported back to me stating her period was a 28-day cycle with no clots very little pain in her back and down her legs. Her bleeding was a normal healthy flow, and she only needed to take Phosphorus once during this period. When I asked how she was feeling mentally and emotionally, her response was so much better than it had been in well over a year. She is applying to new higher-paying jobs and feels she will be able to, for the most part, take care of her children financially, this is after taking Lycopodium 6c daily for three months.
How Do Estrogen and Progesterone Play a Role in Endometriosis?
Several sex hormones play key roles in the reproduction process. Two of those hormones are estrogen and progesterone.
Estrogen levels fluctuate before, during, and after the menstrual period. Estrogen levels increase just before ovulation and thicken the uterus’s endometrium lining in preparation for the possible implantation of an embryo. When the woman’s egg is not fertilized, the estrogen levels decrease and start the menstrual period.
When the uterus does not become impregnated, the hormone progesterone comes in and sloughs off the thickened endometrium lining, causes menstrual flow. Just like estrogen, progesterone levels change throughout the cycle in the menstrual cycle. The progesterone levels start low in the early part of the cycle, slowly increase around ovulation, and then rise sharply the following ovulation.
Endometriosis comes about when progesterone doesn’t completely slough off all of the endometrium lining. Not completely sloughing all of the endometrium lining will cause the remainder of the endometrium lining to stay attached to the uterus. Each month when progesterone doesn’t slough off the endometrium lining during the menstrual period, the lining continues to thicken. This happens when progesterone levels are too low to slough off the endometrium lining, and the estrogen levels are very high called estrogen dominance.
When you have estrogen dominance, it means the progesterone levels are too low to slough off the endometrium lining compared to the higher levels of estrogen. When the progesterone levels are too low to slough off the endometrium lining each month, it causes the endometrium lining to become thicker and develops into endometriosis. Each month the endometriosis tissue sloughs off as small to large pieces (clots) of the lining during the menstrual period or in between the periods. Endometriosis most commonly occurs in the uterus or pelvis, but it can appear anywhere in the body.
What Causes Estrogen Dominance?
- Being overweight – The more fat cells you have, the more estrogen your body will make. The more estrogen you make, the more fat you store, and the cycle continues.
- Stress – Chronic stress is one of the main reasons you may become estrogen dominant.
- Environment – Thousands of man-made products contain xenoestrogens (artificial estrogens), industrial chemicals that mimic the behavior of estrogens and disrupt your hormone balance. They’re everywhere (i.e., in your water, food, personal care products, furniture, and clothes).
- Birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy (HRT) – Hormone replacement therapy medications and most oral contraceptives only add more estrogen on top of excess estrogen, without the balance of progesterone.
- Painful periods (Dysmenorrhea) – Pelvic pain and cramping before and during menstrual period. You may also have low back and abdominal pain.
- Pain with intercourse – Pain during or after sex is common with endometriosis.
- Pain with bowel movements or urination – Commonlyexperienced during the period.
- Excessive bleeding – Heavy periods or bleeding between periods.
- Infertility – Endometriosis is often discovered when seeking infertility treatment.
- Other signs and symptoms – Fatigue, diarrhea, constipation, bloating or nausea, especially during periods.
Who Can Have Endometriosis?
Endometriosis commonly occurs between the ages of 25 – 40 but can also occur in younger women. This condition may also persist after menopause, however such an occurrence is very uncommon.
How is Endometriosis Diagnosed?
- Ultrasound – Abdominal and vaginal (wand inserted in vaginal) ultrasound to check for endometriosis.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) – Commonly used to diagnosed endometriosis.
How Endometriosis is Treated Medically
- Hormonal – Birth Control Pill, IUD.
- Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)
- Dilation and curettage (D&C) – Remove tissue in the uterus (endometrium lining) for diagnosing. It is often used as an adjunct procedure to a hysteroscopy procedure.
- Laparoscopy – Surgically is the only way to determine if you have endometriosis by taking a small tissue sample of endometrial tissue and analyzing it.
Adenomyosis What is it and How it Can Affect Your Menstrual Period?
A client consulted with me about her heavy periods for the last 12 months, she had an enlarged uterus the size of a 6-month pregnancy. She tells me that after working with her doctor, she found out that her doctor misdiagnosed her as having endometriosis. Eight months ago, her doctor put her on the “birth control pill” to help with the bleeding and endometriosis. The “pill” did help control her bleeding during her period, and the in-between bleeding she had for the most part and in hopes was to help with the amenia. Her doctor sent her to have a second pelvic ultrasound after being on the birth control pill for a few months. The radiologist who did her second ultrasound told her she does not have endometriosis; she has adenomyosis instead.
After taking her case history, I put her on the homeopathic remedy Calcarea Carbonica to take daily to address the chronic state of feeling overwhelmed with juggling family life and her business. She also took the following homeopathic remedies acutely for the enlarged uterus and adenomyosis symptoms:
- Folliculinum 9c – For the fibrous tissue in the uterus with heavy bleeding.
- Phosphorus 200c – For when she had the heavy bleeding, with bright red gushing blood when she stood up.
- Sabina 30c – When she was passing clots with the heavy bleeding.
- Thiosinaminum 30c – Took daily for the adenomyosis tissue in her uterine walls.
- China Officinalis 30c – Was taken when she had her period or in-between bleeding to help replenish iron she loses from the heavy bleeding.
- Ferr Phos 6x (Hyland’s Cell Salt) – She took it daily to increase her iron levels.
- White Ash Tincture (Fraxinus Americana) – 10 drops were added to warm water and were taken three times a day to help tone up and shrink the enlarged uterus.
You may ask why she had to go on so many homeopathic remedies? While on Calcarea Carbonica 6c daily, my client’s chronic bleeding from adenomyosis was an acute monthly problem when she had her period and in-between bleeding. Taking the Phosphorus, Sabina, and China Officinalis helped address the bleeding acutely during the acute monthly symptoms. In doing so, she was able to stop the heavy bleeding and clots after taking a couple of doses of Phosphorus and or Sabina and not lose so much blood each month. At the same time, China Officinalis helped bring up her iron count from the bleeding.
While the Calcarea Carbonica would eventually address the overall adenomyosis symptoms months later, she would still have to deal with the heavy bleeding each month, which caused her iron levels to decrease during each month she had the heavy bleeding. There is nothing wrong with supporting someone’s chronic health condition with acute homeopathic remedies to help her overall quality of health until the chronic 6c homeopathic remedy has had enough time to address the underlining cause of the health condition.
What Causes Adenomyosis?
Adenomyosis occurs when endometrial tissue that lines the uterus grows into the muscular wall of the uterus and continues thickening and enlarging the uterus.
Visual Explanation of Adenomyosis – As you visualize an orange peel, you see the outer orange peel layer and a white inner layer on the orange peel. The orange part of the peel represents the outside of the uterus. The white inner layer represents the endometrium lining of the uterus. When the endometrium tissue grows into the uterine wall, it enlarges the white inner layer of the orange peel. The thickening of the endometriosis tissue causes the health condition “adenomyosis.” The endometrium lining grows because of estrogen dominance. High levels of estrogen cause endometrium lining to grow into adenomyosis.
Symptoms of Adenomyosis
You may not even know you have adenomyosis because it may not be causing any signs or symptoms. In other cases of adenomyosis, you may have the following symptoms:
- Heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding
- Spotting between periods
- Severe cramping or sharp, knifelike pelvic pain during menstruation (dysmenorrhea)
- Menstrual cramps that last throughout your period and worsen as you get older
- Pain during intercourse
- Passing of blood clots during your period
- Your uterus may become more prominent; you may think your lower abdomen is bigger or feels tender
Fibroids, Do You Have Any?
A client consulted with me about her being diagnosed with bleeding fibroids. She stated when she has her period, she has back pain that goes across her back from hip to hip and then radiates around to the front of her, especially to her left sided ovary. Her period starts slowly with the bleeding. By the second day, her bleeding becomes very heavy and is worse when she stands up with gushing red blood with clots. My client’s uterus is now the size of a four-month pregnancy from the fibroids. She has a history of using the birth control pill for several years. Three years ago, she had a miscarriage when she was two months pregnant. That is how she found out she had fibroids during an ultrasound. The MRI showed she has one pedunculated fibroid (in the uterine cavity), and one other fibroid is an intramural fibroid (in her uterine wall).
While taking my client’s case history, she told me she had a blood transfusion last year for deficient iron levels, the state of being anemic. Now with her heavy periods, she thinks she is borderline or anemic again because of getting out of breath when she walks upstairs or walks around too much at one time and gets exhausted quickly; this can be a sign of anemia.
My client took the homeopathic remedy Cimicifuga Racemosa 30c for the menstrual pains across the back from hip to hip and around to left ovary. I put her on the homeopathic remedy Sepia 6c for having fibroids from a birth control pill history and a miscarriage. I also had her take the homeopathic remedy China Officinalis 30c every day while she has her period to help keep her iron levels up while having her period. She also took daily Hyland’s Cell Salt Ferr Phos 6x four tablets three times a day for anemia. This homeopathic remedy is a natural form of iron.
My client reported that her next period was much better than the last one. Her overall energy is not too bad, and she feels a little better emotionally. Her bleeding was not as intense, and she only had to take Cimicifuga Racemosa one to two times a day the first two days of her period. My client will be on Sepia 6c for several months to address the birth control pill effects that have caused her to develop fibroids.
Uterine Fibroids What are They?
Uterine fibroids, also called leiomyomas or myomas, are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years. Fibroids range from a tiny pea to a large mass that can enlarge the uterus. You can have one or multiple fibroids. There are four common types of uterine fibroids.
Four Major Types of Uterine Fibroids
- Intramural fibroids – Grow within the muscular uterine wall.
- Submucosal fibroids – Grow in the uterine cavity.
- Subserosal fibroids – Grow on the outside of the uterus.
- Pedunculated fibroids (hanging from a stalk inside or outside the uterus) – Either submucosal or subserosal fibroids can become pedunculated fibroids.
What Causes Fibroids?
Among the many roles estrogen has in your body, estrogen’s primary role is to grow and plump up tissue in the body. All growths of any kind develop from estrogen and not so much from not having enough progesterone in the body. Fibroids also developed as endometriosis and adenomyosis symptoms from estrogen dominance. No matter how you look, high estrogen levels need to be balanced out to stop your fibroids from growing bigger and causing other female symptoms. The good news is when you go into menopause, fibroids tend to shrink due to a decrease in estrogen production.
What I have seen over the years when I help a client with fibroids is that they develop when you can’t grow outwardly, you grow something inwardly (i.e., fibroid, tumors, and other kinds of masses). Sometimes, you cannot grow as a person; someone or something is not allowing you to grow as a person. In most cases, this can be a family member, your boss, or a coworker holding you back from moving forward in your life. Whether it be taking on a new job, advancing your learning in an area for work, starting a business, creativity, or self-image. The point I am making here is that someone in your life doesn’t like or want you to advance as who you are as a person because they feel threatened somehow. So, what do you do? You don’t listen and trust yourself in your decision to take something new on, and you listen to what that someone in your life says about you or wants you to do. That someone in your life may be saying to you, “you will never be able to take on or handle that new job or study. ” You will never be able to make money in that kind of business, and you will never look like that (new self-image); you get my point. That is when you squelch your dream job, business, or whatever it was you wanted to do, and you start to grow something inward, such as a fibroid tumor of some sort.
Common Fibroid Symptoms
You may not know you have a fibroid because you do not have any symptoms. The intensity of the fibroid symptoms can be influenced by the location, size and number of fibroids. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you will want to have a pelvic exam.
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Menstrual periods lasting more than a week
- Pelvic pressure or pain
- Frequent urination
- Difficulty emptying the bladder
- Backache or leg pains
How are Uterine Fibroids Diagnosed?
- Ultrasonography – Performed by one or both transvaginal or transabdominal
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Computed tomography (CT)
- Hysterosalpingography (HSG)
- Laparoscopy – The test is done by making a small cut (incision) in your lower abdomen. A thin and flexible tube with a camera on end is inserted to look closely at your internal organs.
How are Uterine Fibroids Treated Medically?
Suppose you are experiencing symptoms from your fibroids such as heavy excessive bleeding causing anemia, severe pain, infertility issues, or urinary tract and bowel problem; one of the following procedures your doctor will do. Depending on the size, number, and location of your fibroids, and symptoms they’re causing will determine if you need treatment or not. If you aren’t experiencing any symptoms from your fibroids, your doctor will not treat them if they are small fibroids.
Medical Procedures to Remove Fibroids
- Hysteroscopy – Removes fibroids growing inside the uterus.
- Endometrial ablation – Used to treat heavy bleeding associated with fibroids.
- Uterine artery embolization – This procedure cuts off the blood supply to the fibroid, causing it to shrink and die.
- Myomectomy — This surgery removes the fibroids from the uterus.
- Hysterectomy – Surgery procedure to remove the uterus completely.
When addressing fibroids, like any other health condition, you want to address what caused you to have fibroid(s), even when they are small and don’t have symptoms. Why? Because having a fibroid tells you, you have a hormonal imbalance, and you will want to address that before your hormonal symptoms worsen. A medical procedure will not address why you have a hormonal imbalance, whether it is an endometrial ablation, fibroid removal, or even a hysterectomy. The procedure will not address your hormonal imbalance. All a medical procedure does is either eliminate the problem or decrease the intensity of the symptoms (i.e., heavy bleeding).
Now, I am not saying not to have the endometrial ablation, fibroid removed, or any other procedure you decide to have. There are times when a surgical procedure is needed to help decrease the bleeding causing the anemia and to then not need another blood transfusion. You still need to address the hormonal imbalance. In most cases, a mental and emotional component is what created your female health condition.
What I Have Seen Cause of Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, and Fibroids
Endometriosis, adenomyosis, and fibroids cases are more than just hormonal problems. Let’s look a little deeper into what causes hormonal imbalances, such as estrogen dominance.
What Caused You to Have Estrogen Dominance?
Your hormones don’t just go off from nowhere. Something happened to cause your hormones to create a hormonal imbalance. Sometimes it can be a physical incident such as a breast injury or birth control. It was most likely a mental or emotional reason why your hormones became imbalanced in most cases.
Endometriosis, adenomyosis, and fibroid health conditions are located in your pelvic kidney region of the reproductive system. In the Rasavidya Philosophy (original school Ayurveda), your pelvic region is your second chakra (sacrum). This area of the body relates to relationships (intimate) and sexual.
I have found that working with endometriosis, adenomyosis, or fibroid cases, the symptoms start from relationship problems, whether with your partner or in a past relationship. This can be from a past or present partner’s lifestyle, how they threated you and so on. It could also be from a prior sexual incident.
Remember the endometriosis case scenario you read here in the blog, the alcoholic husband? My client’s relationship with her alcoholic husband is an excellent example of what I am talking about here. Now I am not saying it’s all your partner’s fault that you have this health condition, you have a part in it too. What have you brought into the relationship? How did the relationship dynamics affect you and your part in handling it?
A sexual incident (i.e., molested, raped, harassment), even when the incident happened at a very young age, can affect your hormones and bring out female symptoms later on in life. Recent stress in your life now related to your partner affects what happens in your pelvic kidney area. Your imbalanced hormonal levels cause a female health condition such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, or fibroids.
Homeopathy is one of the best modalities to use to address your monthly bleeding symptoms (acutely). Along with what happened in your life, you developed endometriosis, adenomyosis, and fibroids (chronically).
How Can Homeopathy Help Your Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, and Fibroids?
There are two ways homeopathic remedies can address your endometriosis, adenomyosis, and fibroid symptoms.
- Chronically addressing why you developed endometriosis, adenomyosis, and fibroids.
- An Acute homeopathic remedy will address your menstrual period symptoms and your in-between bleeding, along with any other symptoms you have with endometriosis, adenomyosis, and fibroids.
Homeopathic Steps in Addressing Your Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, and Fibroids
A complete case history needs to be taken, whether you have endometriosis, adenomyosis, or fibroids. While taking your case history, I will also ask you what your endometriosis, adenomyosis, and fibroids symptoms were now and when the symptoms started, especially if you are taking hormonal medication.
- A Chronic Fundamentalhomeopathic remedy will be selected to address who you are and how you developed endometriosis, adenomyosis, or fibroids.
- In taking your case history, you will be giving me a complete health history giving a snapshot of how your general health is from birth to the present time.
- However, the main focus would be on what was going on in your life before you developed endometriosis, adenomyosis, or fibroids—looking back at the last 6-12 months of your life for stresses (i.e., relationship, work-related, financial, or caring for a loved one) and in some cases further back as to what happened in your life that could have triggered you to have a hormone imbalance.
- I will also take into consideration other physical symptoms of your menstrual period such as excessive bleeding (monthly and in between), clots, menstrual pains, anemia, how your menstrual cycle was before developing endometriosis, adenomyosis, and fibroids, along with other hormonal symptoms you are having. You will be asked general health questions about your digestion, sleep, and mental, emotional state.
- Acute Symptoms – Select a homeopathic remedy for any Acute symptom(s) you are having with your menstrual period symptoms (i.e., excessive bleeding, clots, menstrual pains, anemic symptoms).
- The homeopathic remedy will be selected according to the acute symptom(s) and what makes the symptom(s) better or worse.
How to Administer a Homeopathic Remedy and Results for Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, and Fibroids
- A 6c Chronic Fundamental homeopathic remedy will be taken daily with ten succussions (ten tap) for a period of time. If you are taking hormonal medications, you will continue taking the medication with the expectation to lower the medication dosage and possibly get off the medication altogether.
- Three “Signs of Health” must occur within 5-7 days after taking a homeopathic 6c remedy.
- Increased or Balanced Energy – Children’s energy needs to be balanced, and adults need increased energy.
- Well-Being Feeling – A mental and emotional shift (i.e., day seems easier in some way).
- Sleep Cycles Improve – Falls asleep easier, stays asleep, or wakes up refreshed and ready to go each morning.
- The chief endometriosis, adenomyosis, or fibroid symptoms your homeopathic 6c remedy was selected for will start to improve within the next three months. Over the next three menstrual cycles, you will see more improvement with how much you are bleeding, a decrease in pain with your period, and any other symptoms you have each month with your period.
- A 30c or 200c Acute homeopathic remedy selected for the acute symptoms (i.e., heavy bleeding, clots, anemia, period pains) will be taken several times a day as needed.
- The acute symptoms will start to improve within 1.5 hours, in some cases within 15 minutes.
- Ferr Phos 6x (Hyland’s Cell Salt) and China Officinalis 30c may be recommended to you for any iron deficiency (anemia). Or you may take other homeopathic remedies for other symptoms you may be experiencing will be taken one or more times a day.
The main objective here is to support your immune system by balancing your hormonal levels, lessening your endometriosis, adenomyosis, or fibroid symptoms, and addressing why you developed either of these female health conditions.

Other Therapies for Helping Endometriosis, Adenomyosis, and Fibroids
Listed below are a few other therapies I have seen help shift the mental and emotional reasons why you developed endometriosis, fibroids, or adenomyosis.
- Myofascial Release (MFR) – I have seen John Barnes MFR external and internal work help
- Heart Therapy
- Somatic Release Therapy
- Voice Dialogue
- One Brain – Three in One Concepts
A homeopathic remedy will help address endometriosis, adenomyosis, and fibroids. However, I have found women using other therapies (listed above) and taking a homeopathic remedy able to shift their mindset and address the mental and emotional states that started the female health condition faster.
The faster you can shift what happened in your life that created endometriosis, adenomyosis, or fibroids, the faster you will be able to have your health and life back from being controlled by your period. Using homeopathy, you will see improvement by your next period. By the time you have your third period, you will be physically, mentally, and emotionally in a much better
