Does anyone out there know of any herbal/chiropractic/homeopathic way to help bring on a period? I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but I WANT to get started again. I keep going through bouts of PMS - irritable, soooo sore breasts, bloating, cramps, etc. The spells come and go every few weeks with no particular rhythm.

DS is 22 months and still nursing pretty frequently, but so did his sister at that age and my cycles started again by the time she was 15-18 months.

I think Chaste Berry is one tincture you can use. Also, using peppermint essential oil is suppose to regulate ovulation as well. Using this diluted in an oil only~NOT orally. Those are the only two I know.

Good Luck~

I think there are some threads on this in the ttc board--old ones from FEb. or so. I got my info there. I was in the same sit in Feb/March. I think what I did was drink Red Rasperry TEa and take Evening Primrose Oil until I ovulated adn then switched to flax seed oil. I'm not sure, though, so you might want to search on Evening Primrose Oil. It helped to nightwean ds (15 months at the time) to go 10 hours w/o nursing.

Good luck, I'm not 16 weeks pregnant,
Anne

My ds is 27 months and I got my first postpartem period last month. What I did was to stop jogging and start walking instead. I did this also before I conceived my ds as I wasn't getting my period then either. I don't know if the running itself was causing me to not get my periods or if running was keeping my weight or amount of body fat just below the point needed for ovulation. I wasn't even running that much or vigorously -- 3 times per week for less than 40 minutes.

My child is 5 yrs old and I still have variable or non existent periods. I stopped nursing or 1and1/2 years ago, yet my prolactin levels are still HIGH. My dr. finally after a year of this torture of hormonal weirdness and extremes and weight gain, had me have an MRI to rule out a pituitary tumor. None was seen, but I am taking Dostinex( very expensive meds.) to bring down prolactin levels and so far no period. I highly recomend that you push your ND or MD to do tests because it can be serious, I have seen and spent a lot of money on care(herbal, chiropractic naturopathic,acupuncture,cranial sacral, emotional and spiritual work) and still it is not down to the root of the problem and I have been at it for 5 YEARS. Something was not right and I know it. Keep on, and Good Luck!
Also CHaste tree(Vitex) needs to be taken continuously for a few months for any effect to occur.
