Introduction: Any circumstance that alters the balance of oestrogen and progesterone leads to excessive, prolonged estrogenic stimulation, or preventing the counteracting effects of progesterone causing various pathological conditions in the reproductive system, as a result. Women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) have mostly anovulatory cycles and low serum progesterone levels. Endometrial hyperplasia is most often due to excess oestrogen without progesterone. The clinical significance of chronic oestrogen secretion is an increased risk of endometrial hyperplasia. A striking feature of uterine fibroids (UFs) is their dependency on the ovarian oestrogen and progesterone. Existing treatments are mostly directed at the symptoms but not at the syndrome itself.

Case Summary: A patient suffering from PCOS, with Endometrial Hyperplasia and multiple UFs, was successfully treated with the homoeopathic medicine Pulsatilla nigricans. Repeat ultrasonography showed normal endometrial thickness, no hyperechoic or hypoechoic lesions in uterus and no ovarian PCOS morphology after treatment. Thus, the usefulness of homeopathic medicines for the treatment of multi-morbid pathologies related to reproductive system of women is demonstrated.
