Prescription- Calcarea carb 1m was prescribed on the basis of above mentioned symptoms on 30.6..11 . PCOD is a sycotic disorder, yet I took the syphilitic symptom (dwelling on past unpleasant occurrences ) as an eliminating symptom. Initially her appetite, sleep and anger improved. Gradually her menses started appearing at the proper time.
Calcarea carb 1m was repeated on 1.10.11 due to reappearance of insomnia, increased appetite and increased anger along with menstrual irregularity. Placebo was given until May, 2012. Calcarea carb 10m was given on 2.6.12 due to reappearance of original symptoms.
USG was done in OCTOBER, 2012 which showed no cysts in the ovaries where, as earlier she had polycystic ovaries.
