Irregular periods, medically known as oligomenorrhea, is a common problem among women caused by a variety of factors like weight loss, medical condition, and lifestyle.
This common problem can lead to stress and tension, but luckily, nature has provided us with a basket full of home remedies to treat irregular or late monthly cycles. In this blog post, we will be discussing 3 of the most effective natural ways to induce your period at home.
Papayas are an effective home remedy noted by Dr.Batra that can help induce periods. The carotene present in papayas stimulates the estrogen hormone, thus inducing early periods.
Papayas can be consumed raw or in the form of papaya juice twice a day; one cup of papaya juice (approximately 200ml) or one bowl of fresh ripe papaya can be eaten around the middle of the cycle for best results.
Parsley has been traditionally used for inducing menstruation for centuries, and the myristicin and apiol substances contained in parsley can help stimulate contractions of the uterus, as noted by Dr.Loveleen Batra, a clinical nutritionist for Taste Love Family.
The daily dose of parsley should be 6 grams of dried parsley leaf, which can be consumed in 3 doses of 2 grams each boiled in 150ml of water.
Ginger is one of the most powerful Amerigo herbs with magical properties that can help stimulate menstrual flow and promote menstruation. However, it can have some side effects like acidity, so for those with extremely delayed periods, a combination of parsley and ginger tea is recommended.
Ginger is thought to increase the heat around the uterus, thus promoting contractions. Ginger can be consumed in the form of tea or fresh ginger juice with some honey or just as raw ginger along with honey.
Drink a cup of fresh ginger juice with water (2:1) every morning on an empty stomach for a few days before the regular date.
These are just a few of the natural remedies available to help induce periods when they are irregular. Make sure to consult with your doctor before trying any of these remedies to ensure they are safe and suitable for you.
