Home remedies for delayed periods

Advertisement


Irregular menstrual periods have become very common these days for a lot of women in their reproductive age and they suffer great agonies when their period does not come on time. A delay of 4-5 days may be fine but if it exceeds 8 days, then it's certainly a cause for concern.

Worrying about a late period won't help you!


 Irregularity in menstruation can be due to a number of causes. There may be underdevelopment or congestion of genital organs. Constitutional diseases, like anemia, tuberculosis and even chronic malaria are some diseases also commonly responsible for causing scanty menses at prolonged intervals.Some women suffer from endocrinal disorders, like hypothyroidism, toxic goiter, PCOS/ PCOD and other hormonal disturbances. The best thing for those who are bugged by the problem of delayed and irregular periods would be to consult a gynecologist who, after thorough check-up, can find out the cause and treat you accordingly.

After ascertaining the cause for your irregular menstruation, you may try some of these effective home-remedies. Pregnancy is also the cause of a missed / late period. So you might want to take a pregnancy test, before trying these remedies.

Papaya
raw green papaya


* Green unripe papaya is also useful in case of a delayed or late period. Cut a few pieces of raw papaya and eat half a bowl of such pieces or else you can make a simple salad from papaya and have it. However if you cannot get unripe papaya, you can make do with with ripe ones as well, but unripe ones are most effective.

Aloe vera
*Intake of aloe vera juice is found to be highly effective when one has a problem of irregular periods. One should start having half a glass of pure aloe juice on an empty stomach once in the morning and another half glass in the evening. Refer to this article if you want to know the procedure of making fresh aloe juice at home. However, instead of adding any fruit juice as suggested in that article, add only pure water to it.

freshly cut aloevera leaves


If making fresh aloe juice regularly is a bother for you and you have a lot of aloe plants growing at home, you may prepare aloe-sugar syrup to store it for 1-2 months. For that you have to extract aloe-juice from the leaves of aloe plants and mix it with almost equal amounts of sugar and prepare a syrupy mixture by boiling it over a low flame. When the mixture cools, store it in a glass bottle. Have 1-2 tbsps of this syrup regularly the first thing in the morning. Alternatively, you can buy organic aloe vera juice from the market (Baba Ramdev's aloe vera juice is also good) and have it regularly twice a day as mentioned above.

* Another way is to scoop out some fresh aloe gel (excluding the yellow part) and mix it with some of jaggery (Gud) and have it regularly on an empty stomach in the morning and one more time in the evening.

Til (Sesame ) 
sesame seeds

* A decoction of cumin (jeera) and gingelly (sesame) (Til) seeds, sweetened with jaggery helps to set off menstruation. Add 1 tbsp each of jeera and Til in water and boil it till the water reduces to three fourths. Add some jaggery to taste. Alternatively you might try making Til (Sesame) ladoos (see recipe here) and have 1 such ladoo, the first thing thing in the morning followed by half a glass of cow's milk.
*Take equal quantities of Til (sesame seeds), Pippali (Long Pepper), Black Pepper, Dry Ginger anad Bharangi (see info about Bharangi here). All these can be procured from an Ayurvedic pharmacy. Powder them and store it in a bottle. Have 1 tsp of this powder with jaggery 2 times a day, the first thing in the morning on an empty stomach and once in the evening.

Amla (Indian Gooseberries)
 
Chew fresh, ripe Indian gooseberries (Amla) early in the morning. If fresh ones are not available, you can make do with Amla juice as well. Take 3 tsp of Amla juice and mix it with 3 tsp of honey and have it. You can use Amla juice from Banba Ramdev’s Patanjali pharmacy or any other organic Amla juice such as this. Do not eat anything for at least one hour after that. Since fresh Amla is not available at all times, you can use dry Amla powder as well. It’s readily available at any Ayurvedic pharmacy. Mix 3 grams of dry Amla powder with water or honey and have it at night after your dinner. Regular intake of Amla removes toxins from blood, aids the formation of red blood corpuscles, relieves urinary problems and helps in irregular menstruation. Try this for 2 months at least and you’ll notice the difference. You’ll feel more youthful and energetic as well.

Fenugreek (Methi)
Fenugreek-methi-seeds
 
Soak 1½ tsp of fenugreek (methi) seeds in water the previous night and in the morning you can see that they swell up. Have it regularly on an empty stomach. Alternatively, you can try fenugreek tea. You can use soaked fenugreek seeds for this prupose also. Boil a cup of water and add 1½ tsp of fenugreek seeds and let it simmer on a low flame. When the water reduces to three-fourths, turn off heat and have it in sips when it is sufficiently hot. You may add jaggery (Amazon) / molasses / brown sugar (Amazon) for taste if you wish. Have this fenugreek tea twice a day, once on an empty stomach and once at night before going to bed.
Fenugreek tea is especially helpful for those who are bugged by PCOS / PCOD problems as it helps normalize blood sugar levels. If taking fenugreek seeds in the morning or fenugreek tea is not viable for you, you may take it once in the afternoon by mixing a tsp of fenugreek seeds powder (buy from here) in a glass of thin buttermilk. Having Fenugreek helps in resolving menstrual problems including irregular and late periods as well as leucorrhoea or white discharge. It also reduces swelling in the uterus and cleans the uterine vessels.

Horsegram 

Horsegram is also called Hurali in Kannada and Kulith in Konkani / Marathi. Eating dishes that have Horsegram (Kulath) can also bring about your period as horsegram is believed to be heat-producing food as per Ayurveda. It’s also good for diabetics. You can have it Horsegram Saar (soup) (See recipe here and here) or this chutney or dosa.


Other Herbal Remedies for tackling irregular menstruation
* Make a decoction of the aerial roots of banyan and consume with half a glass of cow’s milk at bedtime for at least 3 menstrual cycles.
* Take a decoction of the roots of bitter gourd (karela) at least twice a day; this usually makes the period to commence.
* Saunf (fennel) seeds also found to be helpful in menstrual irregularities.
* Boil the roots of the fig (anjeer) and take the filtered decoction for a few weeks to normalize the cycle.
* A small cupful of the decoction prepared from the leaves or the seeds of coriander (cilantro) thrice a day is found to be useful in regulating the menstrual cycle.
* A cup of grape juice everyday is also believed to bring regularity of the menstrual cycle.
* Take a teaspoonful of radish seeds and grind it with water to make a fine paste. Mix this paste with a cup of buttermilk and drink.
* In scanty menses: Drink a decoction of Manjistha / Indian madder roots for an entire cycle i.e. everyday to correct anemia, if any and establish a healthy flow of menstrual blood. [Manjistha is available at any Ayurvedic pharmacy in India. You can also buy from Amazon - Manjistha root Powder Wildcrafted - Rubia cordifolia, 1 lb,(Bazaar of India)]
* Eating raw carrots also stimulate menstruation. A week before menses eat 1-2 carrots regularly.
* For irregular menstruation, make a hot infusion of neem bark and take one cup in the morning, noon and evening until cured.

Pranayam and Yoga for treating irregular periods
* Practising Kapalabhati Pranayam for 15-20 minutes each time, twice a day helps to regularize the cycle and also alleviates other disorders of the reproductive system. Agnisara kriya is another such practice that helps.

* Padahastana is a yogic pose that an help a great deal in making your periods regular. For more information on this asana, read this post and watch the video here. Other poses that help are Trikonasana (triangle pose), supta baddha konasana, Titliasana (the butterfly pose), Shalabhasana (locust pose), Bhujangasana (the serpent pose), Malasana etc. Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutation pose) also helps tremendously. However all these asanas have to be learnt under a competent yoga guru and not to be attempted on your own.

  7. Don't know if pineapple helps but most people say that eating raw papaya certainly helps. But the most effective way to get regular periods is to do Kapalabhati Pranayam regularly. If you have an aloe-plant at home you can easily prepare the syrup. Just click on the aloe-syrup link in this post. You can even extract the gel from aloe-leaves,blend it well and consume the juice directly if your prefer, but the taste may be not to your liking.

    some home remedies for menstruation problem
    Boil 1 cup of black beans in 5 cups of water and drink the juice half cup before your 3 meals this will help regulate menstruation.
    Parsley is one of the most effective among the several home remedies in the treatment of menstrual disorders. It increases menstruation and assists in the regularization of the monthly periods. The unripe papaya helps the contractions of the muscle fibres of the uterus and is very effective in maintaining a proper menstrual flow. The herb hermal is useful in regulating the menstrual periods. It is especially beneficial in painful and difficult menstruation. Two tablespoons of the seeds should be boiled in half a litre of water, till it is reduced by one - third. This mixture should be given in 15 to 30ml doses.

  24. If you are not pregnant and your periods are delayed, please practise Kapalabhati Pranayam regularly. It helps to regularize your periods and is also a good exercise for your reproductive organs. Please consult a good doctor too. I stay in India, so I have absolutely no idea where you can get an aloe plant in North Carolina.

    There are certain conditions that can contribute to the changes in menstruation and flow. You should be checked for any of those. However, feel blessed as many of us suffer from very heavy, almost intolerable periods. Throughout your bodies developmental stages, it is more common to have changes in blood flow during those times. It sounds like now, your body is regulated and therefore evening out. This is a good thing. Just be aware that conditions such as Endometriosis can cause loss of menstruation as well as just the opposite (very heavy bleeding). Your period/blood flow is a direct reflection of the hormones that your body is producing. You may just be one of those people that are not producing as much. The bottom line is that you know your body better than anyone else. Pay attention to the symptoms. If your period ceases altogether, that is definitely reason for concern. At this point, it sounds as if your body is doing as it should.

    Iam gona drink grape juice regularly . Please advice

    ReplyDelete
  32. Grape juice is helpful for regularizing periods and for this remedy to be effective you have to do it over a period of time. I don't know if chewing vitamin C helps. From what you have written, it looks to me that don't have irregular periods; it's just that your period has been delayed only this time and frankly speaking, 5 days isn't a very long time; some even have periods after 40-45 days. Maybe you are just stressed, why don't you wait for a few more days and then consult a doctor? Don't worry unnecessarily, you might have your period soon and in the meantime, if you are absolutely certain that you are not pregnant, please start doing Kapalabhati Pranayam regularly; it really helps.

  45. Hi Anonymous (comment no:44), I really can't advise you on the medications you take; please talk to your doctor about the side-effects of the said medicine (provera). Since your period is delayed by more than 5 months, it's better if you undergo a thorough checkup from a competent gynecologist. You can also practise Kapalbhati Pranayam and try some of the above mentioned home-remedies side by side. Kapalabhati, especially is very effective in regularizing the menstrual cycle, so practise it without fail. And stop worrying too much; you will conceive soon. Good luck!

  50. You can take a cup of aloe juice. When you get used to the taste, you can take a full glass. Fresh aloe juice is the best and it's nice if it's possible for you to take it on an empty stomach. You should do Kapalabhati Pranayam regularly without fail, if possible even twice a day; it really helps. If it's convenient for you can even do Suryanamaskar, that's also a wonderful way to tone your body; it strengthens your abdominal and pelvic muscles. So very helpful in cases of irregular periods. I hope you know the poses well. I wish your periods become regular soon.

Also if can include Suryanamaskara (Check comment #50) in your exercise routine it would be great. Also get yourself checked from a gynaecologist to see if you have PCOD.

    ReplyDelete
  65. It's not a hard and fast rule that your menstrual cycle should be exactly of 28 days. For some it is 22, while for others it could vary. Some have a 30, 32 35-40 days cycle and it's considered normal. If you have menses a week before or a week after your expected date it's considered normal; that's what a gynaecologist told me. Why don't you wait for 3-4 days and if you don't get your period, consult your gynaec. Papaya juice should work; do practise Kapalabhati also-- it really helps.

And do sleep well; 5 hours is too less. You may try the above mentioned home-remedies for your irregular periods. Also see a gynecologist at the earliest to check if you have PCOD

    Hi Aparna,
    i read all your answers they were very helpful.i stay in philadelphia,my periods are very very irregular,my period starts when i take medicines other wise i don't get my period.for how many months we should continue taking this aloe juice and will it harm baby if we are pregnant.i'll wait for your reply

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hi Sravani, you should also practice kapalabhati pranayam along with aloe-juice remedy to regularize your periods. If you are pregnant and when you have period, you shouldn't do it. As far as I know, aloe juice isn't harmful for the foetus, but you can confirm it with an ayurvedic doctor.

  74. Also the weight loss is defiantly a factor of a delayed or missed period. And also stress (u worrying too much about this) is a cause also.
    The only solution for this is to stop worrying

    Many things can influence your cycle. Any stress will alter your body. Stress can come from illness, choice of foods, family issues, job stress or even the weather. It is also known that women in close proximity to one another will "synchronize". If you recently started working or living with other women then you could be adjusting to their cycle.

    This is from an imbalance of hormones.Read about hormones and your menstrual cycle. There are many causes for your symptoms. Most aren't terrible or life threatening at all, but if it continues, please get checked to make sure it's not a cyst on your ovary or something like that. Stress, diet so many things can through your cycle off. You need to learn how to keep yourself "normal" for you.

    please let me what all should i take to reduce weight,irreuglar periods and to get the baby soon.

    apologise fpr the big post.

    please help me.

  89. Hi Priya, if this is the first time that you had a late period, I suggest you wait and see if the next 2 periods are also irregular. If so,get yourself thoroughly checked by your gynaec for PCOD, thyroid or any other problem as you have not yet conceived even after 1.25 years. Frankly speaking, you shouldn't really worry much as sometimes it takes time to conceive even if everything's alright and besides you are just 23. For reducing weight, you can do brisk walking, skipping and yoga. Kapalabhati pranayam is excellent to regularize periods but don't do it during your periods or if you have a suspicion that you are pregnant. Also read this article, if you are interested in yoga poses for fertility and conception. Do let us know of your progress. Good luck!

    Sometimes after discontinuing chemical contraception's, the body needs to readjust until it comes to a regular rhythmic cycle on a monthly basis. It may take months for that adjustment. You are correct in the other reasons that you mentioned for missed periods. If it continues your friend should consult a gynecologist. Sometimes if the uterine wall has too much of a build up due to lack of menstruation, a scraping may be necessary, (called a D&C). Only a doctor can make that call.

    Delayed menstruation can also be caused when you make certain changes in your daily routine. This can involve heavy exercise or adopting a diet plan. You should give some time to your body to adapt to these changes instead of going for medication in the initial stage. All you need is patience.

  106. Hi Priyanka, sorry for the delay in responding. If you have an aloe plant, then it's best to consume raw juice. Just take a few aloe leaves, slit them open and scoop out the gel. Blend it well, dilute with water if necessary and have it. If you want, you can add sugar to taste, but it's best to consume raw juice. If you want to preserve aloe-gel for a long time, say a month or so you can prepare aloe-gel syrup. Aloe-sugar Syrup recipe: After extracting the aloe gel from the leaves, add almost the same quantity of sugar (or a little less than that) to it and boil this mixture over a low flame stirring constantly. When the water evaporates, remove from heat and keep aside.When it cools store it in any container for everyday use.

    Drinking the juice of bitter gourd or a concoction prepared with the roots of the plant is beneficial for restoring the regular cycle of periods. You can also drink a mixture prepared with cumin seeds, sesame seeds and honey to start your period if you have missed them. Fennel seeds consumed with a glass of water are recommended to restore the regular cycles of the period. Similarly the seeds or leaves of coriander or cilantro can be used to prepare an effective decoction to treat the problem of skipped or irregular periods. You can also grind 1 tsp of radish seeds with water and mix it in 1 cup of buttermilk and drink this daily. Daily consumption of grape juice is said to be beneficial in treating irregular periods. If your period has been delayed, you can have some green unripe papaya or the juice of Aloe Vera plant with some sugar to start the bleeding.

  119. For your thyroid problem, get yourself treated by a good doctor, only then you may be able to get pregnant. In hyperthyroidism, it's quite common to experience irregular periods and a lighter menstrual flow. Read more about it here. Along with your doctor's treatment, do regular exercise yoga and pranayama and hopefully your weight should reduce.Also keep a watch on your diet, don't eat too much of fried food, junk food or sweets.

  124. If your periods are getting delayed or if you have scanty flow, please get yourself checked for PCOS? Also do you have unwanted stray hairs growing on your chin, upper lip or chest? If yes, then you may be having polycystic ovaries. You will have to take a pelvic ultrasound scan for that; and the doctor will be able to tell you whether you have a problem or PCOS. If everything's alright, and your periods are getting delayed due to stress, then try and be happy. Do yoga, pranayama and meditation and try not to worry too much.

    Maintaining a healthy weight is the very best thing you can do for your reproductive health. If you are overweight, work on losing the excess weight. If you are underweight, then work on getting yourself back up to a healthy weight.

    On top of that a healthy balanced diet will go a long way too, as well as getting regular exercise.

    You don't mention how irregular you are - for some women being within a few days (e.g. instead of being 28 days exactly it may be 27 days one month then 30 days the next) is regular enough - some women are just not perfectly regular and that's normal for them (and also perfectly healthy, and will not interfere with conception when you're ready to start a family).

    If you're more than a few days off - like skipping whole months or being off by a week or more, then I would encourage you to talk it over with your doctor to rule out anything which may interfere with your fertility when you're ready to try to conceive (it's much better to look after it now than to wait until you decide to get pregnant only to find it may take months to resolve the underlying problem)

    Regular practicing of yoga helps to cure the problem of delayed menstrual period. However, you need to contact a good yoga trainer for the relevant advice.

    I had my periods due on 9th of august 2010, but i haven,t had them till now. i am 22 years old virgin. recently i have started a job which keeps me occupied for 9-10 hours daily. i am very tensed because my periods aren't starting. please help me out.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Hi Xarina, if this the first time that you missed a period, then I guess it could have been due to the fact that you get very little exercise and have to sit for long periods. It could have been due to work tension. Just wait for a couple of days more and then consult a doctor. If this is not the first time, then also you should get a thorough checkup done to ensure that you don't have PCOD, thyroid problem or any other hormonal imbalance. As you have to sit glued to the chair in your office, I suggest you make it a point to get up after every half an hour or so and move around a bit. Sitting for long periods can cause host of health problems. Read this and this. Also refer to comment #135. Good luck!

  160. Hi maayaa, I can't give you any medical advice; please consult your doctor regarding your problem. I did a quick search on the net for the tablet Femilon, and came to know that it is a birth-control pill/contraceptive. How do you expect to get pregnant when you are taking this pill? (Read this.) Please talk to your doctor at the earliest.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Hi sumi, from the symptoms that you have mentioned, it looks like you have PCOD/PCOS. Please go to a gynaecologist and as I had mentioned in an earlier comment (comment 121), she/he will do a pelvic ultrasonic scan to ascertain that. If you are overweight, you should try and lose some weight. Read this post. Don't eat too much of fried and junk food. Exercise regularly, do Kapalabhati Pranayam. If you know a few yoga exercises like Suryanamskar, do that or else you can even try brisk walking. That will help you a lot to alleviate your condition. You can get married and with proper medication you can concieve also. So don't worry about that. As for unwanted hair, try removing it by shaving or tweezing. For permanent hair removal you have to go for Laser; talk to your doctor about this. Good luck

    Stress affects, above all else, the stomach. Ginger has long been used to calm the stomach and it may be through its effect on the stomach nerves that the whole system is relaxed. It has certainly helped many people with delayed or painful periods. Another excellent herb is parsley, which is probably best taken as a tea, which you can brew yourself and drink a few cups in a day. Just put a handful in boiled water and leave it there for half an hour, then strain and drink. Sage and rosemary infusions made similarly have also been found helpful.

    Hi Karen, Many things can influence your cycle. Any stress will alter your body. Stress can come from illness, choice of foods, family issues, job stress or even the weather. It is also known that women in close proximity to one another will "synchronize". If you recently started working or living with other women then you could be adjusting to their cycle. Soy products have estrogen in them. Grapefruit and it's juice tends to hinder the body's use of estrogen. Just examples. There are some herbal teas that might help. I don't know the names. A store clerk could probably point you in the right direction.

    Try not to worry about it. It's not necessarily a bad thing. If you continue to miss your period, then talk with your doctor.

  168. Anonymous4:46 PM

    @Karen: Maintaining a healthy weight is the very best thing you can do for your reproductive health. If you are overweight, work on losing the excess weight. If you are underweight, then work on getting yourself back up to a healthy weight.

    On top of that a healthy balanced diet will go a long way too, as well as getting regular exercise.

    You don't mention how irregular you are - for some women being within a few days (e.g. instead of being 28 days exactly it may be 27 days one month then 30 days the next) is regular enough - some women are just not perfectly regular and that's normal for them (and also perfectly healthy, and will not interfere with conception when you're ready to start a family).

    If you're more than a few days off - like skipping whole months or being off by a week or more, then I would encourage you to talk it over with your doctor to rule out anything which may interfere with your fertility when you're ready to try to conceive (it's much better to look after it now than to wait until you decide to get pregnant only to find it may take months to resolve the underlying problem)

    Diet - is very important. If you eat lots of fast foods you are not giving your body the nourishment it needs. If you eat sporadically, miss meals and diet constantly - you essentially send your body into survival mode. Your body thinks it is starving and shuts down unnecessary systems. A body that thinks it is starving will not cycle regularly - having a cycle that is healthy enough to support new life is secondary.

    Causes can be stress, anorexia, physical or emotional shock, and disorders of the ovaries. Herbs that bring on menstrual flow when there is delayed menstruation --for whatever reason--are known as emmenagogues.
    Angelica stimulates delayed menstruation, breaking up stagnation in the reproductive system. Blue Cohosh is a powerful emmenagogue is considered to be one of the best uterine stimulants and herbs to bring on menstruation.
    Stinging nettle leaf infusion has reportedly returned the monthly flow to women drinking it regularly, even in their sixties. Dong quai tincture, especially when combined with white peony root and licorice, is a superb remedy for women whose menses cease unaccountably.

    it is well known that menstrual irregularity, like short and long cycles, too little or too much bleeding, spotting, pain etc. can stem from poor nutritional absorption ie, Vit B6, magnesium, EFA's, which in turn upsets the body's delicate hormonal system. As Maca is a whole food organically grown it retains maximum nutritional value, unlike many of the foods on the supermarket or green grocers shelf.

    PCOS is most common reason for irregular and painful periods. I recommend you to take Regunova Plus and Gynol Syrup to cure PCOS and associated problems naturally. Take medicines regularly for almost three four months to get the satisfactory results.

    Sleeping after meals doubles gas and acidity that increases burning and sour sensation.
    Drink hot water after meals for easy digestion, it is also good for weight reduction.
    Include ginger, mint leaves and garlic in your daily food. These are good for easy gas and acidity.

    Delayed Period Causes-Stress,Weight,Medication,
    Change in Work Schedule,Calculation Error,Menopause and Pregnancy.
    missed or a delayed period normally is not a very serious issue and in most cases, can be sorted out by lifestyle changes comprising diet, exercise and mental relaxation. In a few cases, hormonal supplements or hormone replacement therapy may be required to induce menstruation. At the end, the solution to the problem of delayed period depends on the cause.

  196. @Anonymous comment #195: If your period is delayed by so many days, it's better if you consult a doctor. If you had regular periods all these years, probably the exam tension & stress that you are experiencing now is causing your period to get delayed. Anyways your doctor is the best person to guide you. In the meantime, you could try Kapalabhati, drink aloe juice, pineapple juice etc. Also do Anulom vilom & Bhramari Pranayam to relieve stress. Good luck!
