Homoeopathy handles a difficult Pregnancy
Dr Vishpala Parthasarathy

Though this case did come to me for treatment of non-conception, I cannot claim full success for this, as she also did GIFT. We treated the pt’s husband and the quality of his semen improved. What I want to highlight in this case is how a tumultuous pregnancy was handled well by Homoeopathy.

This case of secondary infertility came to me in June 2000, where left tube was partially blocked (diagnosed through Laparoscopy).
Hormonal analysis: Prolactin was 5.9 (normal), T 3-16, T 4-7.9, TSH-1.2. HSG shows uterus normal.
Main Treatment started on 17/6/00-Lach once a week, Tub once in fifteen days.
Since Feb 2001 she was given Oophorinum 200 once a month till September 2001.
Then she got Intra uterine insemination. Her LMP was 25/12/01. And finally she got pregnant.
In March 02, Pt came to me for threatened abortion and was treated for the same. History: During her 1st pregnancy she did not have any labor pains and she was 16 days postdated; Labor was induced and waited for 12 hrs but in vain so ultimately Caesarian section was done. The details of this case are as follows:
