Many herbs and minerals were included in Siddha system which is effective in managing chronic diseases. They classified various female diseases and had awesome solutions for its curative measures and also managed with preventive aspects. Menorrhagia is a diseased condition which defines as bleeding per vagina in excessive amount and duration.

In developing nation‟s prevalence of abnormal uterine bleeding appears to affect about 5-15% of women of reproductive age and most likely a higher percentage of women in older age groups. Approximately it affects 10 to 15% of the adult female population. It is commonly caused by conditions affecting the uterus and its vascular apparatus, rather than by any ovarian disturbance. It occurs if the bleeding surface (that is the area of the endometrium) is increased. As per the Siddha text Perumbadu can be correlated with Menorrhagia. Siddha system has several preparations which comprise of herbal, poly-herbal, herbo-mineral and mineral formulations to cure Menorrhagia. In Siddha aspect a drug with styptic action is basically an astringent. It contracts the blood vessels and eventually bleeding stops. This review paper has listed out the commonly identifiable, cost effective herbs having Styptic action as per the classical Siddha literatures with lack of practical applications may be subjected to scientific validation for future clinical practice. The intent of this review is to discuss the available therapeutics in Siddha for the management of Menorrhagia and its associated conditions.
