Often a woman would like to change the date of her next period, due to different reasons like: an important trip, event, project or other. However, it is not easy at all to accelerate the menstrual cycle, but there are a few natural methods that can be very helpful.
Listed below are some home remedy tips on how to speed up your period without taking any chemical substances or pills.
Always consult your doctor before undertaking any natural treatment and remember to discuss with him the reason why you want to accelerate your menstrual cycle.
Hot bath tub is one of the most popular methods to speed up your period. Soaking in hot water increases the body heat. The heat relaxes your abdominal muscles, and at the same time encourages dilatation and increases the blood flow from your uterus.
Heating pads and hot packs work just like hot water – they produce heat in the body, which in turn dilates the blood vessels, and encourages blood flow.
Drink a lot of water while consuming Vitamin C and consult your doctor when taking larger doses of any kind of vitamin.
Physical exercise is another useful method to accelerate your period. It improves circulation and it can speed up the occurrence of menstrual bleeding, while alleviating menstrual cramps and bloats. However, make sure not to exaggerate, for excessive exercise may cause you to skip your periods.
Acupuncture and acupressure can stimulate specific points associated with circulation and blood flow. They can help to strengthen the reproductive organs, making them function better.
However, these two techniques may also stop your menstrual cycle completely, and it is therefore recommended to talk to your therapist, and doctor, before starting acupressure or acupuncture treatments.
It is well known that when you associate frequently with other women, you end up getting periods around the same time. If your friends are expecting their period earlier than you, try staying with them as mush as possible.
Stress may influence body’s hormone levels and delay your period, causing it to arrive much later than expected. So, make sure to keep your stress levels to a minimum and practice some relaxing techniques.
There are many herbs that have the ability to induce menstruation. These herbs are called emmenagogues and they work by stimulating the reproductive system and the blood flow. However, they may affect your hormone levels and cause many other side effects ranging from mild to severe. It is therefore recommended to consult your doctor before taking any of them.
The mildest of these herbs are Chamomile, Parsley, Ginger, Yarrow, Feverfew, Rosemary, Sage and Red Raspberry Leaf. Other stronger herbs include Black Cohosh, Juniper berry, Pennyroyal, Angelica, Savin, Rue, Asafetida, Queen Annes Lace seeds or root and Tansy.
