Wilhelm Karo gives a detail description of the female symptoms of homeopathy remedy Sepia, in his book Homeopathy in Women’s Disease, published in 1942….

      The Sepia patient is indifferent, even to her own family, tearful, but subject to fits of anger. Weak memory, irritable, quarrelsome like a washer woman; over-sensitive to noise, especially to music.

Key Symptoms.

      Sinking down of the abdominal organs, due to the general looseness of all tissues. Everything is slackened; the features, the ribs, the blood vessels. These women are suffering from varicosities, haemorrhoids, congestion of the genital organs, oedema of legs. Dark shadowed rings around the eyes, yellowish pigmentation of the face around the nose and on the forehead.

Aggravation in the morning, better after walking in fresh air, especially at midday.

Special Symptoms.

      Profuse and too early menstruation, menstrual flow usually dark, coupled with crampy colics and a sensation as though she must cross her legs to keep everything from coming out through the vagina.

Leucorrhoea, the discharge being of a varied nature.

Metrorrhagia, due to chronic inflammation and dislocation of the womb. Great dryness of the vagina.

Sepia follows well after Pulsatilla.
