Adenomyosis is a medical disorder where ingrowth of the endometrial tissue occurs, directly into the myometrium, resulting in uterine thickness. Clinical features of adenomyosis commonly includes menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea. The only definitive treatment for adenomyosis is a hysterectomy. This invasive procedure can avoidable with homoeopathic treatment. A 45-year-old female suffering from Adenomyosis with radiological evidence is presented here. Clinically patient reported with complaining of pain in lower abdomen and heavy painful menstrual bleeding for 2 years. After a thorough clinical evaluation, a constitutional homoeopathic medicine, i. e., Staphysagria was prescribed in increasing potency (up to Q10), when needed. Follow up assessment was done and a complete resolution of her presenting complaints was noted at the completion of the treatment. This case report proposes homoeopathic treatment as a feasible complementary or alternative therapy and emphasises the importance of repertorization in individualised homoeopathic prescription.
