This is a broad area that includes such conditions as premenstrual syndrome and other menstrual problems, postpartum depression and hormonal issues after birth and menopause.

Generally, homeopathy can be extremely effective in addressing all of these concerns. As a woman's hormonal state is so intrinsic to her well-being and tends to be an area easily affected when the body is out of balance it tends to be one area that responds quickly to the correct homeopathic remedy. As with any condition it is important to remember that in homeopathy, the exact remedy to fit the individual has to be found.

One of the most common experiences that women face is the condition commonly known as Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). The symptoms of this condition vary from emotional feelings such as sadness, anger, rage, weeping and rapidly changing moods to physical symptoms such as severe headaches, abdominal cramping and sore breasts. As with any homeopathic treatment, the homeopath will consider the whole health history of the person, including all current physical and emotional issues as well as a general psychological overview. In homeopathy, all information about a person can be useful in finding the correct remedy to help balance a person's constitution. The correct remedy can work quickly by helping the body reestablish a level of balance which will manifest in an improvement in menstrual situation. The same applies to other menstrual issues such as heavy bleeding, irregular cycles, pain during the period, suppression of menses etc. Homeopathy can make a big difference in these conditions.

Conventionally, women with menstrual problems are often encouraged to go on the birth control pill (BCP) to control menstrual symptoms. For some women this works well and whilst for others it does not. The BCP now has less estrogen than in the past and so tends to be more effective for more women without side effects. However, the fact remains that a woman's hormonal level is being artificially manipulated by the BCP, which is questionable in terms of the long-term health of the woman. Therefore anybody taking the pill for many years should question this strategy as there some risks in doing this. Obviously, there is a distinction between taking the pill for medical reasons as apposed to for birth control, but in either case, long-term use of the pill should be questioned. There is now a tendency amongst certain physicians to encourage women to take the pill continually, suppressing the menstrual cycle entirely. This is a highly debatable strategy and may well be just one more huge mistake in judgment, similar to the now proven problems with hormone replacement therapy, another of the medical profession's health strategies based on dubious research and misguided thinking (see general health articles.)

A new condition has recently been "created" called pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). This condition is really just really bad PMS but doctors are now giving anti-depressants like Paxil for it. The drug manufacturer that makes Paxil managed to persuade the FDA to allow Paxil to be used under a different name to treat this condition, even though there is no evidence to support it's use. In other words, the drug company was looking for another way to market the drug as its patent was expiring (see general health articles). Homeopathy does not use definitions and diagnostic labels such as these. As already mentioned, the homeopath will look at the totality of the person's symptom picture and health history to find the correct remedy to fit the whole person.

Postpartum depression is another condition that can be helped with homeopathy. This condition has a hormonal component to it, although it is not easy to know why one person will suffer from it than another, or why after one birth a mother will experience it but not after another child. There may also be an emotional component to this condition as well. There is some evidence to connect the condition to situations in which the mother was not really conscious during the birth process, perhaps being given drugs to modify the pain and because of this, feeling a gap in the experience of the birth process. Whatever the cause, it can be very debilitating and challenging with a new-born child and help should be sought. Homeopathy can be very helpful as it is a natural therapy that does not cause side effects and one does not have to be concerned with consequences for the child as one does with certain conventional drugs in breast-feeding mothers.

The menopause time is a natural stage of life, contrary to much of modern medical theory. However, it can be a time of challenge, with classic symptoms of hot flashes, mood changes and shifts in energy. Some women get much stronger symptoms than others. If symptoms are strong and long lasting then help should be had and homeopathy can be very effective. There are many remedies that work on hormonal situations that can fit the experience of symptoms that women have. The conventional treatment has been to put women on hormone replacement therapy, but as mentioned, there is now a lot of evidence that show that long term HRT increases risk of both cancer and heart disease. The evidence to support its efficacy in preventing bone loss has also been proven to be inconclusive, revealing once again the lack of science to back up medical policy, and the dubious financial motives of drug companies (See general health articles).

The general increase of estrogen into the food chain is also causing great concern. The amount of hormones in the BCP and also in foods are being deposited into the water supply which is then taken back up into the food chain. This is compounded by false-estrogen like chemicals found is pesticides and plastics that are also contaminating the water supply. As a result we now see younger children developing their periods, animals being born without genitals (e.g. alligators in the Everglades), and a rapidly declining sperm count in males. Although the scientific community is debating the "science" in this area, it is still of great concern.
