Cases were recorded in the pre structured SKHMC case format. Then the cases will be analyzed and totality will be evaluated. Pulsatilla will be prescribed based on the symptom picture of the case. Symptomatic assessment will be done with dysmenorrhoea symptom assessment chart. Pain will be assessed by using Visual Analog Scale. Observations were noted in tables and charts. Statistical analysis has been done and results were presented. RESULTS: Among the sample of 30 cases studied, all the 30 cases showed marked improvement in the treatment of Spasmodic dysmenorrhoea. Out of the 30 cases, 18 cases (60%) belong to age group 15-20 years of age. Students were most commonly affected (70%). Out of 30 cases, 18 (60%) were Hindus, 10 (33.33%) were Christians and 2 (6.67%) were Muslims. 11 cases (36.67%) attained FMP at 13 years. Regarding the duration of menstrual flow 15 cases (50%) had menstruation 4-5 days. Out of thirty cases, mostly used potency was 200, which covers around 21 (70%) cases.
