Dr. Vitan Gosain shares a case of polycystic ovarian syndrome in a woman of 34. Bluish tongue, suspicious nature, dreams of snakes and being highly competitive were among the symptoms leading to the simillimum.

This is a case of polycystic ovarian syndrome in a female of 34 years. The patient was seen for the first time in February 2019. She presented with irregular menstruation with very scanty menstrual flow (at times reduced to a drop of blood only). She also complained of pain in the lower abdomen and back during menstruation.

Thirst – Good amount of water, 5-6 liters

ON OBSERVATION 

The moment the patient entered the clinic she had a curious expression on her face. After I enquired about the case, she wanted to be doubly sure that I had understood her disease and that I would be able to prescribe for it. I perceived this as a suspicious nature and verified it by asking if she doubts her friends and husband, to which she agreed.

PRESCRIPTION

The patient was prescribed Lachesis (in ascending LM potencies up to 0/15).

The ultrasound scan done on 11th January 2020 showed restored ovarian morphology. The scan showed small renal concretions which was movement of the disease from the more important (fifth- endocrines) to less important disease plane (second – endoderm).It is also the conversion of a static sycotic pathology (polycystic ovarian syndrome) to a dynamic sycotic pathology (renal concretion), showing the process of gradual release of the sycotic build up (sycosis = accumulation).

The patient developed fever, coryza and rashes on her inner thigh during the treatment but unfortunately resorted to allopathic treatment which kept on suppressing the disease and it took longer for the pathology as well as the patient to heal.
