Vitamin C and Parsley tea to start AF?


I have just been reading a lot of websites where they say that taking vitamin c every hour for 12 hours, for a few days along with drinking parsley tea can start AF.

Day 78 and getting impatient! Any sucess stories?

Hiya
I used parsley tea, about a spoonful in some boiling water every other day, and agnus castus (vitex) to bring mine on after 8 months and it worked it took about 2 weeks mind u but it could work differently with u Im obese u see so my body just wouldnt menstruate on its own. not sure about the Vit C every hour, I would maybe take a high dose of vit C every day cause its great for fertility anyway
GL hon let me kno how u get on xxxxxxxxxxxx

Hey, I had a long cycle last month and lost count but it was 60+ days I didn't get round to drinking parsley tea but took some of my OH Vic C tablets on an off chance and a day or two later AF showed after no signs of it coming before that. No idea if the vitamin C is what brought it on but it can't hurt! Good luck, I understand how frustrating long cycles are especially when you've ruled out being pregnant.. you just want to start trying again!! xoxo

Oh and I only took two tablets in the afternoon! Not sure how much MG but not a lot. Definitely not 1 every hour for 12 hours. xo

Parsley tea can work, it just depends on your body.

I drank it a while back along with my mom who'd just gotten over a light AF (she's entering menopause now). Well nothing happened for me (well it seemed like I had more CM, but no bleeding), and she got a full on AF after just finishing her other one!

I finally went to the doctor to get my AF induced, and she did it with prometrium. The day AF started, I drank more parsley tea to hopefully help it come on stronger and really clear out my system, but it didn't seem to make a difference. I don't think my lining was very thick.

Thanks ladies.

Apparently Vitamin C doesn't get stored in your body, so they recommend taking a small amount often over three days, rather than one large amount which will be expelled from your body.

I might give it a try.

Ah the BC pills that I used to take stopped my AF altogether. So looking for an alternative. In UK, doctors wont prescribe anything till you have been off BCP for a year. Arghh!

Well if you do decide to go the parsley tea route -- I drank it with sugar and cinammon in it. Tried it with some lemon but didn't like that at all... I'm sure you could come up with your own combination though!
