My FIL brought me some black and blue cohosh (in the form of tea) but now I don't know if I really want to take it. I have been having contractions every day now for almost two weeks but they are not painful - just mildly uncomfortable - and they are not regular. I was hoping to use the tea to regulate them but I am finding side effects online that are a little scary to me. Some were talking about blue cohosh causing heart problems, which I've never heard so I don't know how accurate this site was...and another said that the black cohosh did help regulate contractions, but also caused heavy fatigue which I definitely don't want if I'm about to meet a new baby. For those of you who have had any experience with it, what was your overall impression of it? What form did you take (tea, tincture, capsules, whatever)? Did it induce labor or regulate contractions you were already having? Did you have side effects?
