I got to admit, I really didnt think it would work, but after having an extremely heavy period for 23 days I was ready to try anything. I started taking the molasses on Tuesday, 1 tb. in the morning and another at night, by Friday, my period had stopped. It is now Monday, and I am still period-free!! My only negative side-effect is a pimple on my face. After having a 3 week period with super-heavy flow with severe cramps and clots... It is hard to explain how happy I am!!! My boyfriend is happy!!! I can have an active sex life again!! There were days that I couldnt even leave the house because I was bleeding so badly. I thank God that I came across this website!! And all this only cost around $3.00. I bought the 'Brer Rabbit' brand of unsulfured molasses from my local supermarket. Thanks you so much for the help!!! I'm telling all my friends!!

I had a child almost 2 years ago, along with many bad pap results. After many doctors appointments and tests nothing could be found on why I was having vaginal bleeding. I have bled for almost 2 years straight. After 9 months of continuos bleeding I was sent to a specialist who put me on a birth control pill. This did stop the bleeding sometimes, but never had a scheduled period either. I saw this page and read what the molasses did for other woman I have took 1 tablespoon in the am and 1 in the pm this is my 3rd day and I have stopped bleeding... It is truely a miracle!!! Thank you so much for this information!!

I was like clock-work until I got birth control when I was 19 (I'm now 37). Since then, I've had menstruation issues - either have extra heavy periods for up to 3 weeks or nothing at all. Depending on the method and how long my periods were, I have been in and out of anemia. (Believe me, I've tried every birth control known to mankind, I think, and none of them worked. ) Anyway, I'm never been big into homeopathic treatments, but thought I'd give it a shot when I found this website. I started taking 1 tbs blackstrap molasses twice a day about a week ago Monday (when I was expecting my period on Wed). Just when I thought I was going to be off again, I got my period on Thursday and it stopped this morning (4 days)! I couldn't believe it!

I'm still not 100% convinced since this is my 1st time, but if this happens a month from now, you can be assured that I will be shouting its praises from the tops of every mountain I climb. For this month, I sincerely thank this website and everyone on it who had recommended blackstrap molasses. Will let you know how it goes next month.

I take 1 tbsp in the am and pm. I am anemic from heavy periods and this has raised my iron/hemoglobin levels rapidly. It has also regulated my period to a normal 4 day cycle.

MIRACLE!!!!! I have suffered from heavy menstrual cycle for nearly 4 years. After having normal. Very light 3 day periods my entire life, living the last 4 years, basically hemorrhaging every month was hell. I was diagnosed with anemia and told that I need a hysterectomy. Not a fan of doctors or surgery, I was desperate to find a natural cure. The day I found this site, I went to the health store and purchased Organic unsulfered Blackstrap Molasses. My bleeding slowed withing 24 hours and completely stopped within 48 hours!! I did not have a bleed for another 28 days. My first period after starting my BSM regime (1tbsp in am & pm) only consisted of one heavy day and a total of 4 days and NO blood clots!!!

Prior to this, I would go sometimes 3months without stopping. In addition to that, I would horrible embarrassing accidents and often could not leave my house. This is a miracle cure for me. I have recently started taking Apple Cider Vinegar and between the two, I haven't felt better in years. Thank you all for your testimonies...... You saved my life!!!

I had super heavy periods. I had to change my pad 3 times in 1 hour. I tried the blackstrap molasses. It worked almost immediately. Stopped the heavy bleeding. My periods use to last 12-16 days, now they last 3 days. I take a tablespoon every morning from a spoon. I chase it with a tablespoon of yogurt. When I am having a period I take it twice a day, 12 hours apart. Just curious, does anyone have an odor with their period and how do you cure that??

I went to the my local vitamin store & bought a chasteberry herb 400mg 100/capsules. I took 2 capsules 3/day just like you suggested, and it stopped my heavy flow within 2 days. Thanks for the tip, this site is truly heaven sent. I'll try taking it before my period starts on my next cycle, to see if it helps lessen my flow. It spared me from surgery. I Googled chasteberry and found out that it is in charge of normalizing the pituitary gland, which regulates the balance of estrogen and progesterone in the body. From Heavy flow to rarely having a period, almost All of the symptoms associated with MENSTRUAL cycle can be treated with this plant.

I had started to have irregular longer periods and shorter cycles; eg. 23 day cycle instead of 28 days and my periods were lasting a full week instead of the usual 4-5 days. I got on this site and read about the blackstrap molasses which I purchased from a health food store. By the end of the first month my period regulated itself back to a 28-29 days cycle and my periods last 3-5 days with much less bleeding then before. Not only did it put my cycle back to normal(I'm 38) but my hair grew 6 inches in the last year and my fingernails are beautiful and hard! I tell everyone about it! At first I took a tablespoon a day, first thing in the morning, then had my coffee, but now I take just a teaspoon a day for the same results!

I really wanted to thank this site for sharing a herbal remedy to all health problems. I've been looking for an alternative remedy about abnormal menstruation and I end up in this site which is really amazing. I always have a normal period which lasted 3 days, but this last 2 years its getting longer that it even lasted for almost a month then just 2 or 3 days rest and here it goes again and with a very big clot as well. I end up anemic.. I tried so many herbal things like ACV but I cannot take it, maybe I am too acidic that when I took it I felt pain in my tummy...body can tell if it is not for you. Then I tried Blackstrap Molasses bought it for just £1.70 in a health shop in MK. At first I thought it will not work, though I like the taste bec. it is sweet. I took 1 tablespoon in the morning and again before bedtime..first 3 days nothing happen but I continued drinking it..little by little my period getting lesser and lesser..blood clot gone and at exactly one week my bleeding stopped!!! But of course it always comes with prayer. So why not try it, it really happened to me.. I thought people from this site is just exaggerating things. But I am a real and my experience is TRUE. GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!

I purchased Organic Molasses manufactured by Wholesome Sweeteners from The Food Co-op in Cleveland(on sale $3.98/31 oz. bottle). This version is unsulphured. I have only been taking it for one week, but the first day I used it was 2 days before the start of my menses. I noticed that the flow decreased in duration from 6 days to 4 days. I am 47 years old, do not have fibroids or any other complaint other than some gray hair and ocassional stiff knees. I am in general good health. I swallow two tablespoons in the mornings straight down. I will take note of the duration of my cycle next month as well. I am not expecting to see any changes in my hair color for at least 4 months. Will keep you posted. Thanks to all who have shared their input. Peace, health, abundance & wealth to all!

At the end of August my menstrual cycle lasted 3 weeks and the flow was three times as heavyas normal. The Dr. said I had "huge" fibroids and an ovarian cyst on my right ovary. They said some of my options were a hysterectomy or trying birth control pills. I found earthclinic instead.

Thanks to the advice on earthclinic, I decided to try the molasses trick. Our grocery store didn't carry the blackstrap--so I thought I'd wait until I got somewhere that did. After only 1 week off--I got my cycle again. On the 2nd day it was abnormally heavy again--I thought --shoot, I'll try the regular stuff, and bought the regular molasses-mild and unsulphered. I took 1 TBSP.

Was it coincidence that it worked instantly? Was it conincidence that the cramping dissapeared? Was it conincidence that my next 2 cycles were right on schedule and back to normal? More importantly, was it coincidence that my follow up ultra-sound showed that the cyst had dissolved and the fibroids were now classified as large-rather than huge? I don't know--but for $2.50 per month (the cost of the bottle and how long it lasted) I will definately continue with taking 1 TBSP per day coincidence or not!!

To Lawana:

09/20/2007: lawana from grayson, ga writes: "I was reading the comment from Rosemary regarding the use of ibuprofen and its side effect of acid reflux. I am a 27 year old woman and I have been taking ibuprofen since I was about 15 for period cramps. I believe that you are right in that ibuprofen has something to do with my acid reflux. When I first started taking it I was younger and my body was a lot more youthful. But as I have gotten older the attack that ibuprofen has had on my body over the years has started to weaken its defenses. I am going to stop taking it but does anyone have any suggestions as what I can take for painful period cramps that won't irritate my acid reflux or cause another sympton to come up?"

Hey, if you want my opinion, and want to see what others have said too, look up the wonders of molasses on this site. It seems to be helping lots of people including myself with very painful menstral cramps. (1-2 T. full a day is what I've read.) Much as I'm sure the birth control pills would probably work, they too are a drug! They mess with the delacate hormone balance and tend to cause estrogen dominance, leading to mood and other physical problems. Not to mention, if you're like me and want more "blessings from above", that is a really bad suggestion. No offense to the person who said it, but it just may not be for everyone.

I am 51 years old and for the past year I have been experiencing very heavy menstrual bleeding.February 29th I was taken to the hospital by ambulance due to how heavy the bleeding was. I was diagnosed with anemia and the ER doc did see something resembling a cauliflower growth on the cervix. I am going to be having pelvic ultrasound and probably other tests this week. During the lapse of time between that ER visit and this apppointment next week I have been out of state taking care of a sick parent and put off tests which I know is bad. I found this website when trying to figure out what I can do to get the bleeding under control until I this is diagnosed. I have been taking 1 tablespoon of unsulphured blackstrap molasses per day from the day my period ends until 10 days beofre another one is due to start. At that point 10 days before and during the period I take 1 tablespoon in the morning and 1 in the early evening. I take it straight and just drink lots of water after. I am pleased to report that the bleeding is probably half of what it was. I have had two realatively easy periods now. The only down side I can report is that my stools are slightly loose and very black by the time I have doubled that dose for 10 days. I am assuming this is from the mineral content. My stools return to normal as soon as I go back down to 1 tablespoon. I would also like to add that long before my periods became so problematic that I had become housebound for the duration I had seen eraly symptoms that there is something wrong. Three years ago I started to have night sweats. Over a period of 3 years I lost 10 pounds without trying. My body composition changed dramatically from very muscular to flacid. I went to my physician who ran tests and found nothing to be wrong. In the years to follow I was going through a very difficult time in my marriage and the stress was unbelievable. I develped a tic in my eye, I started having anxiety attacks. I have had mysterious aches and pains all over and finally my periods became very heavy. I sought help from physicains 4 times over a period of 3 years and all 3 physicians thought I looked too good to be sick and ran just a few tests which did not show any problems.They concluded that it was due to the severe stress and suggested leaving the marraige and getting professional counseling. I know my body and my intuition was telling me there is something wrong but I ignored it probably because I wanted to believe the physicians were right. Now I hope this is not cancer and strictly due to either perimenopause or fibroids. I have periods every month right on schedule every 28 days.
