As she was having Bulky Uterus due to which menses were early & profuse that was relieved with Trilium Q in material doses. Biochemic medicines like Ferrum Phos 6 x and Kali Phos 6 x has given beneficial results in Weakness, Hot flashes and Pre Menopausal complaints. Only sometime for low back pain with weakness I had given kali carb 200. In sycotic nature of case Medorrhinum played very important role.
