The drug Belladonna is for plethoric, lymphatic women; they are jovial and entertaining when well, but quarrelsome and violent when sick. Fine complexion, delicate skin, light hair. They take cold from every draught of air, especially when uncovering the head. The pains come on suddenly, lasting indefinitely, but ceasing as suddenly as they began. Great desire to sleep with the inability to do so.
Congestion to the head, pupils dilated. Skin hot, reddened.
Too early, too profuse menstruation, bright red blood, spasmodic contractions in the womb. Sharp stitches in the genital organs. Backache as if the back would break.
Dysmenorrhoea of a neuralgic type with violent throbbing headache.
Amenorrhoea in plethoric girls from fright.
Metrorrhagia. Sudden flooding after childbirth. The blood is bright in colour, not clotted, sometimes dark, mixed with coagula and bad smelling.
Leucorrhoea, most copious in the morning, bearing down pains relieved by standing upon her feet.
