[YEA] 01/02/2012: Noel from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan: "I had my period for a month straight... Getting heavier as time went on. I looked on this site and decided to give molasses a try. I took a teaspoon in the morning afternoon and night. I'm not too sure if it was the molasses or the shephard's purse or their combined effect, but I'm all done!! It didn't work right away.. I had to take it for about 4-5 days before anything happened, and it wasn't until I made an infusion of the shepherd's purse instead of just drinking it as a tea that my period stopped completely. So I would recommend to anyone to look into shepherd's purse if the molasses doesn't work right away. (there's lot's of info if you google it)"Replies

[YEA] 12/15/2013: Anon from Anon: "While we're on the gyno subject, someone said cayenne will stop bleeding during your period. I took some last night and my period which is usually heavy was much lighter. I happened to have taken the cayenne with cinnamon, which is said to have the opposite effect, so that may be why I had any, as opposed to no, bleeding during the night. If your periods are heavy absolutely give it a try. Just not together like I did.
God bless! Pray for Ted that the captors hear his case, take our side, and release him!!!"
[YEA] 05/18/2013: Cat from Ireland: "I have taking cayenne for one month, one capsule daily. I'm 42 and this period that I am having this week is the 'best' EVER. I have suffered from clots, pains, cramps, flooding ALWAYS... 7 days straight.. Using nearly a pack of towels each day.. This month... Not much pain, , no clots, three/four pads daily... BEST OF all no flooding.. This is a miracle. Try for one month.. Noting to loose.. Best taken with water. Might experience little heartburn... Fantastic.. Can see other benefits emerging too. GOOD LUCK."Replies
05/19/2013: Anon from Anon replies: "Hi. That's brilliant, I wonder if it's the vitamin A and C in it that's helping? Or maybe it has vitamin K too. Great news anyway, thanks for posting x"
01/23/2013: Nicole from Melbourne, Australia: "Hi there, I have just started to use cayenne pepper for my heavy bleeding but I'm only taking a small dose maybe 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper in a glass of water once or twice a day, I haven't seen much difference but I know that it's good for menstrual cramps and bleeding but can it also be good for fibroids or endometriosis or polycystic ovaries? I'm worried I may have fibroids and they aren't showing up on the ultrasound and maybe cayenne pepper can help with the bleeding but not get down to the actual problem. Hope to hear back from someone and thanks earth clinic for all your help."Replies

04/19/2011: Olivia from Evansville, In: "Are there any ladies out there who have had any experience with bad mensis (menstruation) taking cayenne on a consistent daily basis? For example, bad cramping or excessive bleeding? Thank you for comments."
[YEA] 03/04/2009: Isabel from Tampa, Fl USA: "Cayenne Pepper for heavy periods: Take 2 capsules of cayenne peper when you have heavy periods wait one hour and take 2 pills of cayenne pepper wait one hour to see how you are doing, if still heavy take 2 if you are doing better don't take the third dose because you period will disappear and you won't see it until next month, I have done it several times and never failed, I used 40.000 Hu and 100.000 Hu and I always got good results."
[YEA] 11/26/2008: Victoria from Charleston, West Virginia: "I was on the depo shot for a while and it messed me up bad, I was having my periods for 6 months straight no days off, then it went to having them every 2 weeks after i stopped and no doctor could help me, so my aunt told me to try Cayenne Pepper because she does the whole herb thing, and it worked...it completly stopped my period and after I took it 4 days later I got pregnant which was what I wanted because I couldnt stay off my period long enough to get pregnant...I love that stuff now it stopped it within 2 days."

[YEA] 10/17/2007: Samantha from Portland, Oregon: "I found cayenne a great cure for pretty much everything some time ago. It wasnt long ago that I came down with a bad sinus infection, cough, and fatigue. I decided to boil water on the stove, and add cayenne(open 3 capsules and pour them in), crushed garlic(4 cloves),half an onion, and grated ginger. THIS COMBINATION IS AMAZING. It is SO powerful. The most vital ingredients are the cayenne and garlic, but the onion and ginger are also very helpful. Make sure and boil everything until the onion is mushy, and the garlic is too. Keep a lid on, but every so often inhale the steam from the boiling remedy.. very soothing! Pour it into a glass and drink the whole thing. It is very potent, so what I do is add honey to it and it really tastes like liquid food- like a soup base or something.
Another remedy that I use is cayenne tea- just put a tea bag of your favorite tea in boiling water, and add a capsule of cayenne & some honey. Since I have been using cayenne in tea, and orally, and drinking the onion ginger garlic tincture, I rarely get sick.. and when I do, I can kick it within 3 days maximum. Cayenne is also extremely helpful for menstrual cramps."
[YEA] 05/01/2014: Lucecita from Queens Ny: "After reading a post here in EC about Vitex helping with PCOS I decided to give it a try. and I am so glad I did after 4 months of heavy bleeding my GYN wanted to do another D&C. Chasteberry (Vitex) completely stop the bleeding in just 3 days.
Ladys if you have any reproductives issues, (heavy menstrual bleeding, Hormone imbalance etc PCOS ) Please try Chasteberry, is a God sent remedy for heavy bleeding and hormone imbalance. I started taking it 04/25/14 and by 04/28/14 there was not bleeding whatsoever. I am taking Chasteberry (vitex) 3 pills a day with my meals for 12 weeks and after that I will only have to take 1 pill a day. I am following the bottle instructions.
I hope this can help someone with the same problem. I continue taking my ACV, BSM and also added SAGE tea to my daily protocol.
Best of luck
[YEA] 07/07/2013: Mountain Mom from Polson, Montana: "In response to:
08/24/2008: Michelle from Round Rock, Tx: "I had not had my period in a matter of months. I thought it was because I had gained some weight and I tend to miss or skip when I lose weight or gain. Well About 3 weeks ago I got what I thought was my normal period... this time it isn't. I haven't stopped bleeding, not even slowed down. I've gotten large clots as well. I'm kind of scared about it because I'm feeling weak and tired as well as sick and tired of it. I cant do anything."
Cinnamon works. After reading about the cinnamon tea here, I decided to give it a try for my extremely heavy and prolonged bleeding. After having an entire day of heavy flooding, I tried 1/2 tsp of cinnamon in my coffee and kept stirring it as I drank it down. Within the hour, the flooding completely stopped and my period became very light. I also felt a boost of energy.
Later that evening when things picked up again and got heavy, I took 2 cinnamon capsules I had on hand and got the same response, the bleeding went lighter. Cinnamon also took away my painful cramps. I could not believe it.
The next day, I tried it again and to my surprise it worked. I continued cinnamon the next two days and my period came to an end much sooner. I would say, don't overdo it however. If you research it, cinnamon can also be known to bring on bleeding for those seeking to start their periods. I stick with 1/2 a tsp in the morning, and 1/2 tsp at early evening and that seems to work fine. You will have to find your personal balance.
If you are experiencing heavy flow and it's going on too long, and seems not normal for you, then please do get this checked out and make sure it's just hormonal. And please make sure you do not get anemic. I let it go so long, I almost lost my life and had to have multiple transfusions. I went through all kinds of testing, ultrasound, ct scan, biopsy to make sure I didn't have anything going on. When I got the all clear, I went right for the natural treatment. It's worth the peace of mind to make sure and, when you know what you are dealing with, you can go at it with a treatment. Peace!"
[YEA] 08/26/2007: Tanya from Christchurch, Barbados: "Been using VCO for acne for about two weeks. Progress has been slow to non-existent. I als read that it helps with regularity so decided to take it internally (1tsp) for that. Well I didn't get that effect either but amazingly I tookit around the first day of my period and I noticed that my period stopped for a couple of hours. Whenit came back I took another tsp and it went away for two days. It eventually came back but the flow was low and totally painless. I googled the effect and foud out people have been using it for this purpose for centuries. Wish I had known earlier."
[YEA] 10/11/2011: Cece from Elmont, New York: "Menstrual pain became so severe for me that I wished I did not have a period. The pain would hit me so hard that I felt nauseated. One day at work, out of sheer desperation I went into the bathroom, wet a wad of paper towel under hot water, went into the stall and sat with that hot towel clenched on my belly button. I sat there and suddenly - splat! - I looked down and a fat blob of curdled blood looked up at me - and the pain was gone! I started examining what I ate via a journal and realized that things such as cheese, white bread (margarine), beef and alcohol cause me distress when it came around to my menses. I theorized that it was the food I was eating that caused a problem with circulation. I stopped eating all forms of dairy, started drinking lots of room temperature water.
When it was time for my menses, I drank lots of plain room temperature coconut water with a dash of cayenne pepper. That put an end to the debilitating pain! I've passed on the remedy to all my friends. Even if you don't practice good eating habits, when that pain hits, reach for the room temperature coconut water with a dash of cayenne pepper! IT WORKS in half an hour! If you don't have coconut water (no cans, please), use semi contra tea aka mexican tea, american wormwood, epazote with a dash of cayenne."
[YEA] 08/16/2011: Katherine from Seattle, Wa: "My mom used to have incredibly heavy menstruation and she used cod liver oil, but in the liquid form because she was taking so much.
The heavy menstruation was caused by uterine fibroids, but I imagine this would work with other causes, too.
She was taking usually about 3 tablespoons per day, but at one point took 5 tablespoons. This was when it was REALLY bad. Just keep in mind, however, that this is a little hard on your liver. You may feel very low on energy shortly after taking this much CLO because your liver is trying to process it. She really found this to be true when she took the 5 tbs.
The CLO worked really quickly, and she also lost weight while using the oil."
[YEA] 04/24/2009: Snowy from J, SA: "dried apricots with honey cured my excessive bleeding

[YEA] 02/16/2012: Anne from Chicago, Il: "I recently have been getting really heavy periods with the most painful cramps I've ever experienced. I considered going back on the pill but decided to see if I could find another way first. I realized that recently I've been drinking a LOT of soymilk and eating a lot more soy products than I used to, so I thought maybe the isoflavonoids (sp?) might be contributing to higher estrogen and therefore worse periods.
I simply switched to almond and rice milk and this month my period was completely bearable. (It was also a week late. ) So, it's only been one month but I thought I'd share in case that's the connection and it could help someone out!"
