Abstract: Introduction: Uterine fibroids (leiomyoma) are benign neoplasms that arise from uterine smooth muscle. It produces menorrhagia, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, infertility, and pressure symptoms secondary to mass compression. Material and Methods: This is a single case study of a 48-years-old multiparous female patient who came with complaints of painful menstruation during the 2nd and 3rd day of the cycle and pain radiating to both lower limbs for ten years. The patient was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid based on USG findings. She was treated with Kala Basti, 9 Anuvasana Basti with Dhanwantara taila and 6 Niruha basti with Erandamooladi kashaya. The main aim of the treatment is to cure or minimize the pain during the mensuration cycle and to stop fibroid from growing. Result: After two follow-ups, the patient got mild relief from painful menstruation during 2nd and 3rd day. She also got relief from pain radiating to both lower limbs.
