Menses can affect a woman's mood throughout her lifetime. Sometimes the impact on mood can affect a woman's quality of life. Many times the symptoms that result can be managed with Ayurvedic internal medicine and/or Panchkarma therapies.
Premenstrual mood changes
Once a young woman starts menstruating, she may begin to experience emotional changes around the time of her period. 75% of women with regular period cycles report unpleasant physical or psychological symptoms before their periods. Premenstrual syndrome or PMS affects 30% to 80% of women.

Menorrhagia is unusually heavy or long menstrual periods. Menorrhagia can be a cause for concern because heavy bleeding can lead to an iron deficiency, and ultimately result in anemia. It may sometimes be accompanied by other symptoms, which may indicate that an underlying condition is present like acne, excessive hair growth and rapid weight gain.
According to Ayurveda, Vata is the main dosha responsible for this menstrual disorder. This disorder can be temporary or permanent. The disorder can even interfere with a woman's ability to get involved in routine activities like attending work and sleep.
| The use of certain forms of contraception - Intrauterine devices (IUDs)
||A disorder in which the tissue that lines the uterus becomes implanted outside the uterus(Endometriosis).|
| Uterine disorders, fibroids.
||Adenomyosis is a condition in which glands from the endometrium become implanted in the uterine muscle and may cause unusually heavy periods.|
| Thyroid disorders. Having a slow thyroid (hypothyroidism) can lead to menorrhagia
||Medications. The use of certain medications (e.g., anticoagulants, anti-inflammatory medications) may cause hormonal imbalances, resulting in heavy bleeding.|
Dysmenorrhoea, also known as painful periods or menstrual cramps, is pain during menstruation. It usually begins in the pelvis or lower abdomen, may include back pain, diarrhea or nausea. In young women painful periods often occur without any underlying problem, in older women it is more often due to an underlying issues such as uterine fibroids, adenomyosis or endometriosis.
Many women never seek medical attention for dysmenorrhea. Self-medication with analgesics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and direct application of heat are common effective strategies.
In Ayurvedic view, generally menstrual problems are due to aggravation of Vata and Pitta doshas. A variety of causes may be responsible for this condition, however blood deficiency and increased toxicity in the body are the main causes.
White Discharge (Leucorrhoea)
Excessive discharge of a white, sticky, foul-smelling material from the vagina is called Leucorrhoea. This common problem may occur due to unhygienic conditions, infection of the genital tract or impaired immune function. In Ayurveda, Leucorrhoea is known as Shveta Pradar, where Shveta means ‘white’ and Pradar means ‘discharge’.
Excessive intake of heavy
oily, cold, sweet and dense foods
consumption of too much milk, butter, yogurt and cheese
overindulgence in sexual activity
repeated abortions or miscarriages
following improper diet and lifestyle during menstrual cycles
improper vaginal hygiene can cause leucorrhoea
Pain in the lumbar region
Irritation and itching in the genital area
According to Ayurveda, the causative factors (especially food) mentioned above can result in aggravation of Kapha Dosha. This increased Kapha, along with other factors, can impair the Rasa\Dhatu (nutrient plasma) present in the vaginal tract, ultimately leading to the painless discharge of white colored fluid from the vagina.
