Astringent / diuretic used for menstruation, diarrhea, wound healing, inflammation, fluid retention, edema, and much more.

As an astringent, shepherd's purse can also be used in mild diarrhea, especially if bleeding is involved. Externally, the fresh plant can be crushed and applied to fresh wounds once they have been cleaned, where it will help stop slow bleeding and reduce inflammation.
