Irregular or Prolonged Periods?

Irregular or Prolonged Periods?

Irregular or prolonged periods can be a common and inconvenient problem for many women. This commonly occurs as women approach menopause, but can occur at any time in a woman’s reproductive life. Cycle length can become shorter and heavier often arriving every 2 weeks and can last for up to 2 weeks. This can frequently result in iron deficiency leading to significant tiredness for the woman involved. Once this has been medically checked, natural therapies can significantly improve symptoms,
helping to normalise the length of a cycle and reduce the heaviness and length of the bleed.

Herbs such as Vitex Agnus Castus work wonderfully to regulate cycle length, whereas flow time can often be reducedwith the herbs LadiesMantle, Beth Root and Shepherd’s Purse.

Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Disease can also prolong flowtime, so it is important to address this if it is a problem using herbs such as Rehmannia and Hemidesmus.

It can take 3-6 months for the herbs to have their full effect on themenstrual cycle, however these benefits are often long lasting and significantly improve a woman’s quality of life.
