Posted by: Dr. The name Amenemhet III was written in the right upper corner behind third page name. The document was torn in places and patched with gum and papyrus. Head of Pharaoh Sobekneferu. The papyrus had been so heavily used that its ancient owner had to repair it, with a patch bearing an administrative fragment visible at one point on the back.

The text is divided into thirty-four sections, each section dealing with a specific problem and containing diagnosis and treatment; no prognosis is suggested.

Treatments are non-surgical, comprising of the application of medicines to the affected body part or swallowing them. The womb is at times seen as the source of complaints manifesting themselves in other body parts. Kahun Gynecological Papyrus, part of page 2 and Page 3 The first seventeen parts have a common format starting with a title and are followed by a brief description of the symptoms, usually, though not always, having to do with the reproductive organs.

The second section begins on the third page, and comprises eight paragraphs which, because of both the state of the extant copy and the language, are almost unintelligible. Despite this, there are several paragraphs that have a sufficiently clear level of language as well as being intact which can be understood. Paragraph 19 is concerned with the recognition of who will give birth; paragraph 20 is concerned with the fumigation procedure which causes conception to occur; and paragraphs are concerned with contraception.

Among those materials prescribed for contraception are crocodile dung, 45 ml of honey, and sour milk. The third section paragraphs is concerned with the testing for pregnancy. Other methods include the placing of an onion bulb deep in the patients flesh, with the positive outcome being determined by the odor appearing to the patients nose.

The first prescribes treatment for toothaches during pregnancy. University College London also has an extensive page on the manuscript with its translation, as the manuscript for the health of mother and child.
