My bleeding stopped completely one week after I started cinnamon, I also started to take on the third day of this week Chastetree Gattilier tincture for hormonal balance and I still continue taking it after.

I had to change tampons and pads every hour in the last three days, with large blood clots, and I had heavy seven or more day periods all my life, sometimes twice per month or full months. I had been on the pill to regulate them but it made me gain weight, or just taking extra iron. I finally checked earthclinic and decided to try cinnamon, although not a fan of the taste - one teaspoon in a glass of juice or water, and works like a miracle, instantly, I didn't have to change a tampon in five hours, I will post again in a couple of days, purchased a couple of remedies recommended here but I intend to stick to cinnamon and liquid iron for a couple of days to see if it will stop it.

I read a post from another website, a lady said her natural doctor recommended an alternation of primrose oil and fish oil for hormone imbalance and that stopped it.

I cannot thank you enough for this. I began having issues years ago, no doctor detected the problem, and suddenly, at a high point during the pandemic, I couldn't stop bleeding and spotting. At first I thought it was my period, then 25 days later again, then again, and they lasted for more than a week so I was bleeding all the time. Large clots, very dark blood. I was weak, dizzy. My iron levels were low since February, doctors still saw nothing wrong.

So, I tried ACV and it worked, then I got severe stomach pain and acid reflux so I had to stop. And the spotting came back.

I came here, read your advice and immediately boiled half a cinnamon stick in a litre of water. Drank it and about an hour later I felt the inflammation decreasing. I kept taking half a cup 3 times a day for two days and the spotting was gone.

Stopped taking it, it came back. So, now I'm going to take it every day and hopefully it'll keep working.

I'm also taking molasses, I feel much better, but sadly it didn't seem to stop the spotting.

Again, thank you. God bless you.

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!
