There are many reasons why you may want to start your period.
Although there are no 100% effective ways to control this natural process, you can take action to help your body have a normal menstrual cycle. Here are some tips on how to do this, especially in a natural way.
Fill up on vitamin C to trigger your period
The few tips on how to start your period that I offer here are mainly focused on natural remedies.
You should know that vitamin C is one of the emmenagogues that can help trigger your period. In fact, it acts on the walls of the uterus. For some women, eating foods rich in vitamin C can cause the uterus to contract, which in turn triggers a period.
In any case, I suggest that you keep your vitamin C intake at 60 mg per day. If you plan to take supplements, make sure you don’t exceed the recommended dosage.
To stay healthy, I prefer fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C: citrus fruits, tomatoes, green vegetables, peppers, kiwis, broccoli, papayas,
Triggering your period with parsley
When you are looking for natural solutions to trigger your period, you will certainly come across tips on the benefits of parsley.
The apiol and myristicin present in the flat, curly leaves of parsley will trigger a slight contraction of the uterus, which can trigger a period.
Although the effect of these substances on the uterus has not yet been scientifically proven, parsley tea allows many women to bring forward the date of their next period.
The recipe is simple:
🌸Take a quarter of a cup of fresh parsley that you have already coarsely chopped.
🌸Pour in a cup of water that you have already boiled and let it soak for 5 minutes.
🌸Then add a spoonful of honey and you can drink this beverage in the morning and evening.
In principle, your period should arrive the next day.
Turmeric and mint: natural remedies to trigger menstruation
It is also possible to bring forward the date of your next period with turmeric. And it doesn’t take much time to prepare. Just sprinkle it on your dishes like steamed vegetables and rice.
Alternatively, you can add a teaspoon of turmeric powder to a glass of water, add a spoonful of honey and drink the mixture. You can use lemon instead of honey if that is your preference. This preparation can be drunk hot or iced… the choice is yours.
What should I know about natural herbal remedies?
Spearmint, angelica, peony, saffron, motherwort and others are all herbs you can use to trigger your period.
Before you use any of these tips to trigger your period, make sure they are safe for you. I suggest that you consult your doctor or do some research before using other herbs.
This will allow you to be sure about the dosage, their effects on your body and especially their effectiveness. Note that some herbs are toxic if you take them in large quantities.
If you think your period is late because you may be pregnant, avoid using herbs to avoid the risk of miscarriage. The same applies if you already have a health problem, as emmenagogic herbs could make your situation worse or cause side effects that could be harmful to your health.
And if you change your habits a little!
How do you trigger your period? There are several tips that can answer this question. Whatever natural remedy you choose to adopt, however, pay attention to your lifestyle.
If you do regular physical activity, make sure that it does not go beyond your limits.
Too much physical exertion can lower your oestrogen levels and stop your period. Also take time to rest, as stress does not go well with your period at all.
If it doesn’t stop them, it delays them as it can corrupt the functions of the hypothalamus. This is the area that will regulate the menstrual cycle. A good hot bath may help you to do this, as it also helps to trigger the period.
Does getting your period cause stomach aches?
Menstrual induction is sometimes seen as unnatural and harmful to the female body. However, as we have seen before, with the right techniques, there is nothing dangerous. You don’t use anything bad for the body and simply change your diet or some habits.
If you feel the need to relieve ovarian pain after your period, it is not directly related to the action you took to trigger it.
In fact, it’s often the late periods that hurt me and have talked to several friends, they confirmed that it was the same for them. Moreover, it is normal to have some pain during periods and that is why we all hate them, even if they are what gives us the ability to be mothers…
If you have recurring stomach pains because of your period, I can only advise you to go to the doctor. In the short term, take a Doliprane tablet. This will give you some relief until you get better treatment and may allow you to get out of bed in the mornings when you are holding your stomach.
