Dear Don't know
No, one can't use over the counter medication for this. Your womb cleans itself every month by menstruating. If you are not menstruating every month, you may have a hormonal problem, and may need hormone tests and relevant treatment. In that case you may need to see a gynecologist. If you have a discharge, you may have an infection and may need antibiotics. If you battle to fall pregnant, you may not be ovulating or your tubes may be blocked and this then also needs examination by a gynecologist.
