absolutely impervious, a little patience and tact will enable you
to succeed. You may sometimes insinuate a small Sims' probe,
when a large Bound, more especially a stiff one, could not be intro-
duced without undue force and unnecessary suffering. I need

Something, however, will depend upon the state of health, which
is secondary, and which has been, induced, directly or indirectly,
by the persistent derangement ef the menstrual 1 function. If the
dysmenorrhea has existed for years, thepatient may be so ill with
symptomatic endometritis, gastritis, gastro-enteritia, ovaritis, cys-
titis, chronic hepatic and digestive derangements, tuberculosis,
diseases of the nervous system, or a depraved condition of the
blood, as to prevent her complete recovery. And this, although'
the ease and regularity of the flow have both finally been estab-

will infer that the treatment of obstructive dysmenorrhea must
be chiefly of a Order Amitriptyline surgical kind. Internal remedies are suited to the'
relief, and possibly the cure, of other varieties of painful menstru-
ation, but they are of little or no permanent avail in this. The
cause of the suffering is physical and mechanical, just as in a case

the use of constitutional means, we may mitigate the pain and!
other incidental symptoms,, yet the cure will depend upon the
removal of the cause.
If the seat of the stricture is at the os externum, a slight inci-
sion may suffice to open the cervical canal. If, as most frequently-
bappens, it is at the os internum, it will be most prudent to try
the virtues of dilatation, and reserve the cutting as a dernier
renort. Dilatation is equally applicable to most cases of atresia..
of the cavity of the neck of the organ.
