Objectives : Secondary amenorrhoea is the absence of menses for three months in a woman with previously normal menstruation or nine months for women with a history of oligomenorrhoea. It can be caused by stress, extreme weight loss, and excessive exercise. The purpose of this study was to report the clinical effects of herbal medicine on secondary amenorrhoea.Methods : We employed oriental medical treatments; herbal - medication (Hyunburikyungtang gamibang), acupuncture and moxibustion. We treated the patients one or two times a month with oriental therapy method. They took medicine three times a day after a meal. During taking medicine, we let the patients avoid fatty food, flour based food and alcohol. We evaluated the status of the patient, on the basis of the state of menstration and F2 level of Yangdorak. Because we diagnosed the condition of patients with the pattern of liver depression and qi stagnation, so F2 level of Yangdorak was an important point of the diagnosis. Yangdorak machine was Tormeter Iw - zen at Towatech Co.,Ltd.Results : After taking treatment - several times acupuncture and moxibustion during some period and taking herbal-medicine, they had menstrain naturally without taking any hormone drug. Also the amount of menstration has gradually increased. The F2 level of Yangdorak returned to normal range. The feeling of cold on hands, feet and lower abdomen was much improved.Conclusions : Herbal medicine (Hyunburikyungtang gamibang) with oriental medical treatments, acupuncture and moxibustion was effective in the treatment of secondary amenorrhoea.
