Mensus-inducing drugs: their role in antique, medieval and renaissance gynecology and birth control.

Abstract

PIP:

Antique medical texts describe the use of menses-inducing drugs; some drugs were used for abortions as well as for treating amenorrhea. A table presents a list of these drugs; 71 of the 161 drugs quoted are not now known for causing abortion. A safe and effective once a month pill was first described by Soranus and is still considered an important goal for modern birth control.
