Menorrhagia is nothing but excessive bleeding during menstruation. In Ayurveda terminologies, this condition is known as Rakta Pradara.
It is found that due to hormonal imbalance in the body of the patient excessive bleeding takes place during period. As per Ayurveda, aggravation of Pitta is to be blamed for this disease. Cancer in the uterus can also be one of the reasons for this condition.
During menstruation, patient might feel pain in the abdomen, lumbar region or hips, and excessive bleeding takes place for a long period. This disease exhausts the patient and if not treated may lead to various other complexities like anemia. Giddiness, headache, restlessness are few symptoms those are complained by the patient. The patient might also feel breathlessness.
Ashoka is the herb of choice to treat this condition. Lodhra is another herb of choice in Ayurveda to treat this condition. The powder of the barks of these two herbs is administered to the patient either separately or in a compound form. This can be given four times day with a dose of one teaspoonful.
Ashokarista and Lodhrasava are two popular medicines in Ayurveda which are advised to the patients at a dose of 30 ml twice daily after food with water.
Tender leaves of pomegranate tree are also helpful in this condition. Seven tender leaves and seven grains of rice are mixed together to prepare a paste and given to the patient twice daily for a month.
Pravala(coral) and Mukta(pearl) are used in the acute condition of this disease. The powder form of this medicine commonly known as pishti is given to the patient in the dose of 100 mg four times a day.
All kind of hot and spicy food needs to be avoided. Old rice, wheat, moong dal, milk, and ghee can be given to the patient. Pomegranate, sugarcane juice, grapes, banana, jack fruit are useful for the patient.
Avoid any kind of exercise. Take sufficient rest mentally as well as physically. Excessive exposure to sun, vehicle riding, long journey are harmful in this disease.

I have had menorraghia for 23 years. The past four months have been the most normal in those years, but I am very very anemic. I am taking an iron pill which is an organic natural one well tolerated by my very sensitive stomach. What else can I be taking to heal my body. My holistic doctors prescribed shephards purse and it did nothing. Also is there. A link for Ayurvedic practices in my area?

Hello, i am 37 and have irregular period. I had surgery 2yrs ago for endometriosis where tissue was removed from pelvic region. Since then pain has not been anywhere near as pinful during or before periods but stil a little pain, dark clots with period lasting almost 7 days, severe headaches, lower back pain, severe depression/anxiety. I was told after the operation the only treatment was contraceptive pill (Loette)which have been on continuously since. After operation i had no period for 8mths then irregular ever since. I have previously been on contraceptive pill on / off almost 20 yrs to treat acne which is no longer a problem. What ae my alternatives of Ayurveda so I can stop takin the contraceptive pill please?
Kind regards, Jaylee
