In catarrhal and relaxed conditions of the vaginal mucous membrane, injections containing about 1 dr. of the tincture, or 10 gr. of sulphate of iron in each 1/2 pint of water, are often useful, but they have the drawback of staining linen. When the leucorrhoea is mainly dependent upon general debility, the internal administration of iron is often sufficient to relieve, without any injection; and in severe cases, occurring in anaemic and cachectic females with oedematous swelling (from excessive blood-losses), I have found the citrate of iron and quinine useful. Montgomery commonly recommended the pernitrate for leucorrhoea.
