I am so excited to share this story with you ladies. I came across this website a few days ago because I was trying to obtain some information about missed menstrual cycles. I found the cure for it right here on this website.

Today is February 11, 2012. I had not seen my cycle since December 5, 2011. This is not the first time it has happened to me. The early part of last year, I had gone almost 3 months without getting my cycle. One day without notice, it came and it was a massive overflow. Luckily for me, I was in a pasture fishing with my mom and there was no one else around. It freaked me out because I was thinking at the time, what if I had been in a grocery store or a public place when it happened. Anyways, I got over that time. Months went by and my cycle was normal. Then, after it went off in December 2011, it never came back on again.

After researching this website, I decided to try the apple cidar vinegar.

Yesterday morning, I put 1/2 cup of water in a cup and 2 Tablespoons of apple cidar. The taste wasn't lovely but it was bearable. I sucked it through a straw because I had heard also that the acid in the vinegar is not that great on your teeth. I love pickles so I guess it doesn't really matter to me.. :) I also drunk another dose of it last night before I went to bed.

Around 11am this morning when I used the bathroom, I could tell that my cycle was beginning. I was so freakin amazed by this. It truly works.... And even more, it came without the flooding effect. I was so worried about my cycle because I have a trip planned to Destin, FL next week and I had all kinds of thoughts going through my head about what if it floods while I am out with the girls, etc.

I hope anyone reading this will use this remedy. I also think I have figured out what causes my cycle to do this and why the apple cidar works. This is just my opinion and observation but here goes. The uterine lining sheds each month when our cycle comes on. However, for those times our cycle don't come on, the uterine line actually blocks the menstruation from happening. Just imagine this lining that's there blocking the area where the blood flow comes through. Each month that your cycle does not come on, that lining is there starting to sag heavily from the built up menstruation. Weird I know. But then I think the reason the apple cider vinegar helps start your period is because the acid in it is so strong that it helps eat away the lining. Just a thought but something is going on for this to work as well as it does. I can't really explained the part about why the blood flow does not come out uncontrollably. Maybe it also dissolves some of the blood while it's working on the uterine lining. Like I said, just a thought. I am curious though.

If anyone has a better explanation, please explain it to me. Good luck ladies. I hope you all have as much success with this as I have. Thank you so much to all the ladies who posted their situation on here. You never know how valuable the information you share is until you do!!

I am so thankful that I found this site and saw all of the other women's experiences by using ACV. I am a 45 year old so I am in perimenopause and my symptoms have been horrific. For the past two years I have had excessive bleeding, flooding, clotting, anemia, and pain with my periods. I have missed many days of work and I have had to stay literally locked up at home for fear of having constant accidents out in public. My periods were every 3 weeks instead of 4 and they would last for say 10 days. Just recently I went to the doctor and she put me on birth control pills. Well I didn't have a period for 5 weeks.... Then midway in taking my birth control pills I started to flow again. It was light so I thought I was doing good. Then, I just continued to flow for days. Then on day 13 of light bleeding I started to flood and huge clots again only this time it was worse than ever before. Just to say this as of day 18, yesterday, I was about to go to the hospital thinking that I would need a blood transfusion.

But I came across this website while I was looking for natural remedies for my heavy menses. I have organic ACV and I put some in some water with honey and drank it three times yesterday and I am pleased to say that I am having a much lighter flow. I have used it today as well and it has made such a difference for me so far! I have found my saving grace!

Thank you so much for this site and all of the helpful comments from women like me. I am spreading the word so other woman will have to suffer like I have! So ladies reach for the ACV for your period!

Hi all,

I was diagnosed with PCO about five years ago... I'm 45 years old, married with no children. I been having abnormal cycles all my life and at times none at all. I found a website which made reference to ACV Organic Raw (unfiltered). I begin taking about six months ago and I tell you NO lie. I have had a cycle every month. I'm also type II diabetic and my numbers are AWESOME! I have always exercised (walking) on a regular. Sometimes the "Natural" elements work. I wished I had knew about this years ago but hopefully this information can be helpful to someone:)

I just wanted to thank those of you that have posted their experience with using ACV for prolonged periods and earthclinic.com for providing this site. I missed my period for two months. When it came it lasted for nine weeks. It flowed through tampons and pads. I could not leave my home for fear I would leak through. I also had very large clots. My doctor did a sonogram and said nothing was wrong so she scheduled an appointment for a gyn. I was sick of bleeding so heavy. I was getting exausted and anemic from the blood loss.

So, I decided to find a home remedy for the problem. That's when I found this site. I thought I need to try this. I mixed one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 8 oz. of water and drank it two times a day. My period completed stopped in a day and a half. I have cut back to once a day but the bleeding did not come back yet. I am very happy that I didn't have to spend lots of money and go through unnecessary medical procedures to stop it. I wish doctors would share this kind of information. Thanks again earthclinic.

Apple Cider Vinegar had the total opposite effect on me than most women. It was like someone turned the faucet on, it was horrible, I started the Apple Cider Vinegar a week beforehand, guess it only works for some.

Me too. Makes me bleed more, horrible. So does cayenne. Its a blood thinner, like aspirin. Its illogical to suggest that for heavy bleeding.

This is amazing. I was actually looking for validation to a claim that I am ready to scream to the top of my lungs and I found it here! After my last period, someone told me about drinking ACV for cleansing my digestive tract and relieving myself of excess water. Well, I think I was so focused on my increased number of bowel movements that I missed another wonderful discovery!

Let's go back... For years, menstruation has been a nightmare for me. I was to the point where my doctor told me that if I wanted to have any more children, I needed to do it now because what she wanted to do about my ABNORMAL bleeding would prevent pregnancy. Well, I've since battled infertility issues (for which I am looking to resolve naturally before I go back to the fertility specialist), but I just came off my period and realized that I didn't have debilitating cramps, my monthly headache, nor those big monster clots that hit the comode water and splash back up at me! Could ACV be a part of my healing?! ?! ?! ? I mean, no one knows how depressed I would get knowing that my period was coming... Nights of miserable sleeping, nervous anxieties of messing up my clothes... I'm gonna do this for another month and if it still works, I'm telling everyone I know who deals with periods from HADES!

Its true... I did a colon cleanse and thereafter made sure I took lots of fiber and drank tons of water and as a result my periods were 100x better and I did not even get PMS anymore or migraine headaches. There is a correlation with unhealthy bowels and PMS/ Heavy painful periods. Thank you and happy periods! I still want to know how to make them SHORTER as in shortened days.

Apple cider vinegar helped so much with my problem of heavy bleeding, I am 53 and was having such a terrible time.

I tried 2 tps ACV with a bottle of water and orange flavored drink mix. I drank it 3 times that day and it slowed down the flow so much, it made my period so much more easier to deal with. I recommend the ACV treatment each day of your period, you won't need any other medicine at all.

I have been spotting for three months, and recently it has gotten way heavier. Lately,the weird thing is that it's the heaviest at night. After 5pm it starts to go out of control, then the daytime it goes back to light.

I have started using ACV pills and it has slowed my flow. After the first dose, it made my flow slow way down. It was at least 80% less bleeding. I am only on day one, I will keep you informed on the outcome of this treatment. This probably a temporary solution, until I can make it to the Dr's.

I used 2 pills three times a day, with a small meal, such as bowl a cereal or bread and butter. I bought them at the drug store in the diet aisle.

I would like to share my experince with Apple Cider VInegar (remedy):

I am 50 years old and had been experiencing flooding (term I was unaware of until my OB/GYN used this label for extremely excessive menstrual and mid-cycle bleeding) for about 6 months. I was bleeding 6 months STRAIGHT, without stop.... to the point where use of a maximum-flow tampon would not inhibit blood from running down to the floor, 5 or 6 times a day. It was just horrible. I was searching on-line for a solution to this demoralizing, debilitating problem, when I came upon references to ACV as a remedy for excessive bleeding.

I started the next morning: 2 T ACV mixed with 1/2 cup water or orange juice, quickly sipped down with a straw, then followed immediately by a full glass of water. I mention these practices specifically, because you'll want to drink the vinegar as quickly as possible, and then, be certain you have rinsed it all down your throat and diluted it in your tummy. (vinegar is so acidic that you need to protect your teeth, throat, and tummy).

I am sorry to frighten you with the preceeding warnings, but they're important precautions to take. However, it is worth drinking ACV, and being careful about it, too, because I found that it entirely stopped the flooding problem I had been experiencing. About a month ago, I became complacent, and missed an entire day of using the ACV, and I immediately had break-through bleeding the next day. So, I started faithfully right back on my routine of 3x a day, and NO MORE BLEEDING PROBLEMS FOR ME! That brief day when I got lazy and stopped using the AVC, and the immediate relief I found when I started using it again, are sufficient to keep me using ACV.
I have never been any sort of holistic/organic/folk person when it came to making decisions about medical care... but I certainly have changed my mind, now!

Good luck to anyone who tries this- I hope you have the success that I have had!

I have suffered from painful ovulation and also irregular periods and many misscarriages. I monthly chart and know what's been going on for years in my cycle. I have been taking ACV for a little over a week, and for the first time, my ovulatory pain was walkable and only an hour. . .as opposed to a day in bed. Plus, it was less than 1 week after my period, instead of 2 weeks plus. This is crazy! I also have taken molasses for period pain, but not for long and then I ran out after less than a week. I may have found it helped with my infertility as well, but I figured I needed to heal from my last misscarriage before attempting again. We will see next month, and what my next period will be like (usually another day in bed). . .will keep you posted.

I found this website when looking for a home remedy for my prolonged menstrual bleeding. I was getting my period for 3 moths or more at a time. I have PCOS and before, I had to take progestrone to make me get my periods so I could get pregnant. Once my son was born, I had the opposite problem and couldn't stop bleeding. I bled very very heavily for months on end, feeling tired and weak. Also just feeling disgusting, and it was causing some feelings of dissappointment because my husband and I weren't able to share any intimate time because of my constant bleeding. So I read this website and thought to myself, I doubt this will work, but let's try it anyway. To my complete amazement within 1 week of trying this I stopped bleeding completely! It's been 1 week now with no period at all, not even spotting! (which is a miracle because I wa constantly spotting inbetween). I've been taking it for 2 weeks now. I am also surprised, the taste isn't bad at all. I expected it to taste disgusting, but it's really not bad.

Another amazing surprise, my sister said it looks like I've lost some weight, so I got on the scale today expecting little or no loss at all, but I was SHOCKED when I saw I'd lost 18 lbs! WOW! This product is fantastic and I'd reccomend it to anyone!

I stopped and started using ACV again, I noticed that when my monthy cycle came, it was lighter than usual, no PMS either, I was pleasantly surprised, no cramping, nothing. I am hoping that since I have started back on the ACV my blood pressure will be regulated again, and my heart palpitations will disappear.

Hi, Sylvia! I recommend using a glycolic acid cream or toner on the areas of your face that get ingrown hairs. Hope this helps.

Hi, Just wanted to ask, i've just started with the ACV (2 TBS) with honey (1 TSP) mixed with water. I drank it 3 times a day yesterday. I'm currently on my third day of menses, and noticed that my bleeding so much less. I've also have a slight fever with an on-going, but bearable headache. Took aspirin, but it didn't go away. Now i'm worried that my fever could be due to my menses slowing down due to the ACV? is this bad? please advise

Replied by S.

Hi, those symptoms are probably from normal detox due to ACV eliminating toxins from your body in general. I experienced this as well when I started taking it. Its a good sign!
