Interruption of the activity of ovary before the age of 40 is called premature ovarian failure (POF), in which ovaries lose their follicular and hormonal functions. Decrease in the number of ovules before the age of menopause is physiologic. In this case report, we reported the treatment of a patient with POF using traditional Persian medicine principles. In Persian Medicine, each humor has its own temperament. Change in temperament and quality or quantity of these humors causes a disease and modifying the temperament is the milestone of treatment. The patient was a 39-year-old married woman with irregular menstruation cycles and finally cessation of menstruation. In this period, the patient had vaginal dryness, severe dyspareunia, gastritis and parasomnia. At first, some instructions were ordered to change her lifestyle; change in food intakes, enough sleep and exercise. Alsosome medications were ordered, including:Digestive system electuary (Majoun Jahaz Hazemeh), Eyaraj Figharacapsule and powder containing Glycyrrhiza glabraroots, Foeniculum vulgareand white sugar. oil massage of abdomen and flanks and cupping of the uterus. At the end of treatment period, complete rehabilitation achieved and menstruation irregularity, gastritis and parasomnia resolved. If the patient follows the rules and has a good life style, inappropriate humor does not present, therefore the healing can be stable and this disease or similar melancholic disorders do not occur.
