Menorrhagia is an excessive or prolonged bleeding at regular intervals during menstruation. It is essentially a symptoms and not in itself a disease. It affects 20-30% of women at some time or other with the significant adverse effects on the quality of life in terms of anaemia, costly sanitary pads and interference with day–to- day activities. In this report we have discussed a case of idiopathic menorrhagia (no organic pathology) which was treated by Qurs-e-Habis for a period of 3 consecutive cycles (during period). The patient had a follow up 1 month for recurrence of symptoms. Her pallor was positive and USG findings were normal, and there was noticeable improvement in her condition. Qurs-e-Habis may have a role in curing menorrhagia. Further case series is recommended.
