| Lack of Menstrual Periods |
Answered by: Susan Eagles
Question from: Name not given
Posted on: October 14, 2000
I am 28 years old and for years I have had problems with menstruation. It has been almost a year now and I have not had my period. We have been trying to have a baby but it’s difficult when you don’t know if you’re ovulating. My doctor has run out of ideas and I would like to do this naturally. Is there anyway to "induce" my period, and if so, can or will I ovulate as well? Please send any advice that may help.
We have answered similar questions previously. Please go to our website at http://www.richters.com, choose "Q&A" from the main menu choose, then choose "Medicinal Herbs and Their Uses" and search for the item "Menstrual Regulation to Promote Pregnancy ".
Balancing hormones to promote regular menstruation is one part of the puzzle. Nutrition and lifestyle are important factors in a healthy pregnancy and birth. I suggest that you use a couple of books as resources: Amanda McQuade Crawford’s "Herbal Remedies for Women" (Prima Publishing) and "Healthy Parents, Better Babies" A Couples Guide to Natural Preconception Health Care by Francesca Naish and Janette Roberts (publisher The Crossing Press, California). These books will give you detailed information that has been used with a high success rate in overcoming problems with conception and avoiding problems in pregnancy and in the baby’s health.
