Word of the Day – Emmenagogue

By September 24, 2015Word of the Day

Emmenagogue (n)


A medicine or procedure that promotes menstrual discharge.

I have no idea why or when this would ever be wanted let alone wanted often enough to warrant its own word.

Example sentences

“I cannot imagine a world where there’s a woman who would want an emmenagogue”

And because I really couldn’t think of another sentence.

Ammonio-chloride of iron is tonic, emmenagogue, and aperient.
From Cooley’s Practical Receipts, Volume II
