Vinegar or Baking Soda
[YEA] 02/23/2009: Rena from Mineral Bluff, Georgia: "Menstruation odor cure for women. Many people use the Vinegar cure for underarm body odor which works well. You can also spray a little vinegar on your pantie liners or pads for a natural feminine deodorant. Just get a little spray bottle, and spray a little vinegar on the pads and let dry, no more odor. For the heavier day's you can dust with a little baking soda as well for double the protection. You can pre-spray your change of pads in advance to take to work as well. It sure is nice to have the confidence when you work around people like I do and not worrying about the odor, Peace, Rena."
[YEA] 08/06/2007: MARTHA from LAREDO, TEXAS: "I was having a very heavy menstrual period, I was miserable I could not go out any where this was my second month and the only thing the nurse from my doctor's office recommended was to rest. My doctor said I was a candidate for a D&C if my period would continue the same. I was recommended to use vitamin c 1 to 2 1000mg pills a day. I was on my 3rd day of heavy torment and I took 2 1000mg vitamin c this made my heavy flow to ease up and I continued my regular menstrual period the next two days. I was recommended to use vitamin c 1000mg one week before my period one to two pills a day and take it all thru the last day of the menstrual period. This really works I am back to normal and happy to share this with other women who are suffering what I did."
[YEA] 11/24/2007: Sandy from In the sticks, Nevada: "Vitamin E has totally eliminated the breast pain I would get before my period, as well as the cramping I would get during my period. I take 400 IU once a day. The breast pain disappeared the first month I was taking this and the cramping disappeared the second month."
Walnut Bach Flower Remedy
[YEA] 01/13/2008: shaila from Kerala, India: "Walnut which is a Bach Flower remedy has invariably worked for any menstrual cycle related problem - from PMT, period pains, menopause. I have recommended it (sometimes along with other BFR) for any number of girls and women. It has not let them down even once. Please let more people know about this."
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 03/25/2013: Tmnk001 from Johannesburg, Gauteng: "Hi there, I took 4 teaspoons of White Vinegar on Friday when my periods was about to take place to stop them and also another 4 teaspoon on saturday, since then my periods never came. It's like I am skipping them for this month because this is the 4th week now of not having my periods. I am worried but others says it will come next month if I stop using a vinegar. So please help, is this true?"
12/07/2011: Serena from Palm Springs, Ca: "Hello,
I have recently started using the birth control pill, and the first month, I got my period after only 19 days even though I was still on the hormone pills. It lasted for about 6 days, and by the time I started the sugar pills I had nothing... No spotting, no period. I am afraid that will happen again this month (I start the neck pack tomorrow, which will be day 1), and I really don't want to get my period, have spotting, or any breakthrough bleeding until its time.
I have heard that Yarrow tincture or Wild Yam tincture can help with this. I also read that Cayenne pepper and Vitamin C can also help. Has anyone had any success with any of these? Any other suggestions?
I am going out of tow. In 2 weeks and reallyyyyyy don't want to eat with any "surprises". Thanks in adavnce!"Replies
12/10/2011: Isabel from Tampa, Fl replies: "When my periods were very heavy I used one cayenne pill then I wait 2 hours and see if still was heavy then I took another pill, be carefully not to take it if you are doing OK, otherwise your period will dissapear until the next month, it happened to me several times the good thing is that cayenne will give you a lot of energy, I used 40.000 HU"

12/04/2011: Serena from Palm Springs, Ca: "Does anyone have any experience with Wild Yam tincture? I saw online somewhere that's it's good for breakthrough bleeding for menopausal women... so I'm wondering if it can help with my breakthrough bleeding due to my body getting adjusted to birth control..."
[YEA] 02/13/2008: Major from Wichita, Kansas: "I wonder why this remedy is not more well known. Zinc supplements relieve menstrual cramps - 100% success rate in almost every case.
My teenage daughter began her mense cycles early in her life and almost right away suffered from extreme menstrual cramps. Each month she would be bed-ridden for at least two days with a heatpad wrapped around her tummy. Missing school was the norm. And any future activities usually had to be planned around her cycles as she would be totally debilitated for at least three days of the month. This went on for quite awhile with tylenol or some other pain reliever being the usual protocol though providing little in the way of relief.
Visits to her doctor usually brought up the discussion of birth control pills as one alternative to relieve the monthly pain. And so after several years of her suffering in this way, we relented, and she began a regimen of Ortho TryCyclene. Admittedly, we were relieved to finally see her free of her painful menses and for the first time in a long time she was enjoying her life without worry of the dreaded cycle each month. She could finally plan activities without worry! But in the back of my mind I was not at all happy about someone so young being put on hormone therapy.
One day during my routine research on the internet, I came across a website belonging to George Eby. Mr. Eby is the guy who pioneered the remedy of zinc lozenges for the common cold. He has also done alot of research on magnesium for depression. His website has a ton of useful information:
At any rate, while at his site I stumbled upon research with zinc as a remedy for menstrual cramps:
(this opens up as a pdf file)
In some of the case studies of young women taking zinc gluconate, some became alarmed that they had become pregnant because their menses failed to occur - a testement to how successful the zinc protocol is.
We purchased the recommended type of zinc and began our daughter on this regimen after discontinuing the Ortho Tricyclene. Lo and behold! It works! We have been so overwhelmingly amazed that such a simple supplement works. If you follow the protocol in the pdf file, I am confident this will work for any woman suffering from painful menstrual cramps as our daughter did."
