Inducing a Period?


I was wondering if anyone knew a natural way to induce a period after pregnancy. In the past I've had to have meds to make me start my cycle. I had a miscarriage resulting in a D and C on Sept 8th. I have yet to start and they are going to give me till December to start. I want to start TTC again so I really want to start before then. I've had some cramping like I had while pregnant and a few symptoms of starting for the last 2 weeks but nothing has happened.

I'm sorry for your loss. I don't think there's anything you can do to induce a period - its just one of those mother nature things. Hope you get yours soon though. All the best.

Hi

even if you induce a bleed somehow, it doesn't necessarily mean it will bring on ovulation. Have you ever tried agnus castus/vitex/chasteberry (all same thing different names in different countries)? It can generally help to regulate your cycles and also in many cases kick-start more regular ovulation as well. You need to take about 1600mg a day though; not the low dose versions that are designed for relief of PMS symptoms only.

Thanks, thats mainly what I want to do (get regular). They are putting me straight back on clomid for the ovulation once I start. I just want to start and get that over with. I feel like I'm still in the miscarriage process and once I start I will be able to move on somewhat. I will def. try that thank you!

Hi

No problem, just one thing if you're going onto clomid; please make sure you stop taking the agnus castus a few weeks beforehand as the two can interact dangerously together; leading to a higher risk of OHSS (agnus castus is basically natures clomid).

Regards

I heard parsley, dried or fresh can help hurry things along...drank some last cycle when I was waiting for my first period after BCP, not realising I was pregnant! Doh! Fortunately it is not strong enough to harm a foetus....unfortunately it turned out to be ectopic anyway

when my af was delayed, black, strong coffee with a lie down used to help. i think it was the coffee that helped.

Yes caffeine is supposed to be good; also evening primrose oil or any other oil which is a good source of Gamma Linoleic Acid (borage and hemp oils are both meant to be considerably more potent sources of GLA than EPO), if taken in relatively large doses; can help, it helped for me to get the bleeding going after I found I had had a MMC.

I tried to drink the parsley water and couldn't even bare it on my tongue. No AF yet though. I was wondering if there was anything you can put in it to make it taste somewhat drinkable?
