I have started consuming Apple Cider Vinegar since 30 days ago (so happened one day before my menstrual started). Did not consume it at first due to heavy menstrual flow but just for the overall benefits of it.

To my surprise during my last menstrual which always have been crazy with heavy flow on second day (10-15 pads/day), my second day flow reduced by 70-80%. Menstrual was more constant in flow and ended in 5 days (which was my norm). Since then I have been consuming Apple Cider Vinegar approx. 2 teaspoon wt 150ml water in the morning on empty stomach and 2 tablespoons wt 200ml water half an hour before dinner. Now came the second month exactly 29 days since my first day of my previous menstrual. I always have 25 or 26 days of menstrual cycle but this is my first time to have it after 29 days. Throughout my menstrual I did noticed that I did not have my regular premenstrual headaches and bloatedness. I did not have my regular lower back pain which travels down to my feet during the second day. Due to the much lesser flow, I slept better. There was also no discharge before and after menstrual. Btw, I am 45 years old and have been having heavy flow for about 4-5 years. For the past 3 years I have been diagnosed with very low red blood count due to very low iron. Have been taking iron tablets but to no avail. Have taken my full blood test 45 days ago and will have it check again after this month's menstrual cycle. Curious to know if Apple Cider Vinegar helps in the aspect of my red blood count as I am not losing so much blood now. But definitely it has helped with menstrual flow and all the achy stuff that comes with it. So far happy bout it.

I started taking Apple Cider Vinegar for weight loss reasons. So I had been taking 2 tbsp 2x a day a week before my cycle. When my cycle started I noticed that my cycle was very light. So I looked it up and sure enough, it said it can help with heavy bleeding PCOS. What a difference that made!!! Plus I stopped drinking alcohol for that time...I read that alcohol causes heavy bleeding too. So with both of these changes, my cycle was enjoyable. I hope this helps others!!

You have no idea how much this post and comments from others helped me this week. I am 45 and this is the first time in a year that I have not had heavy bleeding and clotting after drinking the AVC.

I had a cup days before my period as I was clearing mucus from a cold.

On my 1st day of heavy bleeding this month, I found this article.

The following day, I had training for a new job and was having anxiety over having to keep getting up or possibly having a leak through accident. Needless to say, I was "normal" this first week of training with no heavy bleeding and not going through extra pads and tampons each hour! Saving me money as well. I have had such a pleasant experience this time, if that makes sense LOL..

Thanks so much to all who posted, I hope this helps!

I was so over the heavy period situation every month, I had to find a remedy so I've been drinking ACV two times a day and I have really noticed the difference it is definitely an acquired taste but its something you can get use to, especially if its going to help you.

First if you have the ablation they are pretty easy, office procedure, I had one and it helped.

I also started bleeding terribly again (several years after the ablation). I found ACV and tried it. In 2-3 days all bleeding stopped. I put 3 TBLS in a 32oz. water jug and add a water flavoring I like to mask the taste. I drink it through out the morning and it has stopped the bleeding completely. I have also lost 7 pounds in just a couple of weeks. I generally feel better than I have in almost a year. It is worth a try. No doctor is going to tell you they agree on natural solutions, they want your money. But you know these are things ladies were doing back when there wasn't a wide knowledge of medical information especially for women issues.

I started using ACV 2 months ago. Originally I did this in order to help lose weight. But I noticed that my period dramatically decreased the first month. I thought it was just a good month that I had a normal period without all of the heavy bleeding. So 2nd month came around. I didn't do the ACV the 1st day, I had a heavy flow that night and that morning. I immediately decided to resume my ACV just to see if it actually worked. Within a couple of hours, the flow decreased drastically. Also, the benefit is that I am actually losing weight slowly, but I'm losing weight.

I started using ACV a few months ago to lose a few extra pounds. My period was regular because of my birth control. 2 months ago I was waiting for my period, it usually came on Friday or early Saturday. All day Saturday I was in a panic because nothing had happened and I thought I was pregnant! Luckily later in the afternoon my period started and I was relieved lol! So I looked it up and learned that ACV can help with periods... cool! The next month the same thing happened... cool! This month, well it is now the Tuesday after the Saturday that I was supposed to start....and nothing!!! I had no period at all this month. Crazy but I am not complaining! (and no I am not pregnant :D ) This works! I only drink a small glass of OJ with a splash of ACV before dinner and it does the trick!

Hi, this is my first time posting, but I just had to because of this change I've noticed. I've been drinking ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) and lemon mixture, for the last couple of weeks now for an diet experiment. And I've noticed that when my cycle came around, that it was VERY light. I'm usually a heavy bleeder, so I was shocked. That's why I'm here, looking for information about it. I wasn't sure if it's the lemon's or the ACV, but either way, I am happy to have some relief with it.

What a blessing!!!! I promised God if this worked for me I would write a review so here is my story, I always had somewhat heavy periods but, as I got older around the age of 43 I started getting heavier periods with flooding and huge blood clots . Here I am at age 45 and didn't want to have the heavy bleeding and clots because I was on a cruise last year that kept me basically in my cabin bc of heavy period . I am about to go on a cruise in three weeks and didn't want the same experience ( my period is due two days before I come home ) so I decided to experiment on this period some holistic cures. I stumbled across this thread and read that Apple Cider Vinegar would help me. I was skeptical but, said to myself what do you have to lose? So I started the regime on the second day of my period I took 1 tablespoon 3 times a day in water. My period was almost non existent I only had to change my pad once!!!! ( I usually use ten pads a day sometimes double up ), last night I was waiting to wake up from "flooding " nope!!!!! What a blessing!! Thank u God for this miracle and this news thread!!!!!!

Woke up in a panic over menopausal "floods" this morning, jumped on my phone, looked up natural remedies and came across ACV. Took 2 teaspoons in a glass of water and flow was almost instantly ceased.

My cycles came twice a month and heavy each time. I start taking Apple Cider Vinegar everyday with one to two tablespoons added to one cup of water a day every day and throughout day drink plenty of water. It took about 2 months for the heavy flow to stop.

I was starting to have flooding issues during my period. It was just awful and I had serious concerns about losing too much iron. I couldn't be too far from the bathroom! I had always had heavy periods but this was ridiculous. I tried so many doctors for help and even tried balancing my hormones using bioidentical progesterone. I tried chastberry for 6 months. Nothing worked! I wanted to run a long run that was timed the following month during my period. I wasn't going to be able to do the run and so I was desperately searching for a solution. Then I came across this site.

I realized I had some of that unfiltered, organic ACV in my cupboard. I've heard the filtered/clear stuff doesn't work and that it has to say "with mother" on the front. I pulled some out and mixed 2 tbsp with a Hot Toddy in the evening. I know, I know, evil... but I was miserable and a little cognac helped too. It worked within a few hours. It's freakin' amazing! I can't believe all the years of heavy periods and all the money on doctors. This allows you to control how heavy your periods are.

I've learned for me that 2 Tbsps of ACV (the unfiltered kind) three times a day eliminated my period all together. Adding a little liquid stevia with some water helps the taste. So now I'm going to reduce the amount of ACV I'm taking until I have a reasonable period. I am just thrilled to have control of such a scary situation - and such an inexpensive, easy solution!

I read about ACV here last month. I was suffering from flooding. I had some capsules of ACV in my kitchen. I took two capsules three times a day and after the first day the period almost completely stopped. This month I took same dosage as soon as cycle started and continued every day. Light period. No clots. All I can say is Wow!

I was suffering from menorrhagia as I am perimenopause at age 47 and had an IUD inserted to stop the bleeding in the moment. I was getting chest pains, shortness of breath and heart palpitations with this IUD and recently read that this IUD causes breast cancer and decided to have it removed and opted for bioidentical progesterone. When the IUD was removed I immediately started bleeding which became heavier and heavier. I searched and then came here to Earth Clinic and decided to try organic ACV since it had gotten such rave reviews from other women with a similar condition. I literally went from heavy clotted flow to light then nothing in 2 days! I was floored! It really does work and I am so grateful to all of the women that commented here.

I would also recommend bioidentical progesterone replacement as that has heart protective benefits. I am taking 50mg CMP progesterone and drinking 2 tbsp ACV 2x per day. I feel amazing!

My doctor explained that we are subjected to xenoestrogens in just about every processed product we consume (including bottled water made with BPH) and touch in our lives. These xenoestrogens cause hormonal imbalance in the form of estrogen dominance and that can cause heavy menstruation. The ACV helps to eliminate these xenoestrogens, thus restoring balance along with the bioidentical hormone replacement. LOVE IT!!!!

THANK YOU ALL so much! I read thru every comment last night. I couldn't sleep a wink, 45 yrs old and my period started after nearly 10 weeks of heaven (no periods) I knew I was in trouble because my last flows have been horribly heavy but last night was the worst ever. I could go about an hour between changing tampons and pads! NOT fun, it was a nightmare. Just 2 weeks ago I read about the benefits of ACV for skin care. I thought well if its good for Scarlett then I can give it a go. I love it. My skin is soft, no blackheads and now I'm working on a couple of dark spots that are forming. So... I actually had ACV in my kitchen! Yay me! After I read a few experiences I thought my gosh go try it, what can it hurt.

I ran and measured 2 T. ACV and added about 8 oz of water. I took a straw from the cupboard and sipped in all down rather fast. I didn't care about the taste, I needed help.

Its been about 8 hours and guess what!!!!! It has slowed. I'm in total heaven. I've been so scared. I was feeling weak, dizzy when getting up, etc. Thank you all so much for taking the time to share your stories, I read them ALL! I was prepared for DAYS and DAYS and weeks of misery. Its the middle of June and I want to jump in the pool every day. I was certain that I wouldn't be swimming for the rest of the summer (due to past experiences.) Yay! Bring on summer!!!
