HOME REMEDIES TO STOP PERIODS EARLY

Below I am sharing some of the home remedies which actually worked for me but please make sure that you are using these remedies when you are experiencing heavy bleeding for more than seven days because it is normal to bleed for seven days. If it lasts more than that make sure to contact a gynecologist just to make sure that you are not having Polys Cystic Ovarian Syndrome(PCOS)or any such issues.

These are all home remedies which has no side effects ( as these are tested by me and opinions are based on how it actually worked for me)

1. CORIANDER SEEDS

These are the spice which is easily available in all the kitchens(I assume). These miraculous seeds help to maintain the hormonal levels in your body. And that’s why they are helpful in also starting your periods.

  • Take two cups (coffee mug) of water in a utensil and then add 2 tablespoon full coriander seeds, boil it till the quantity of water reduced to one cup.
  • Add a bit of honey if you want to avoid that pungent taste.
  • Drink it two or three times a day.

NOTE: some people might get side effects or allergic to it. Make sure you are not sensitive towards it.

2. ICE BAGS

Ice bags are helpful because it helps our body to cool down, our body heats up when periods happen and in order to stop it we have to cool down our body

  • Take an Ice bag, and keep it in your abdomen.
  • Repeat the process 2-3 times a day.

3. BEETROOT & POMEGRANATE

Prolonged menstruation can also be the result of low hemoglobin levels.  Eating or drinking beetroot and pomegranate juice (separately) to help in increasing hemoglobin level, which will, in turn, helps in reducing or stopping periods.

 

In my case, if I am experiencing a prolonged menstruation, for more than seven days the bleeding usually stops within 3-4 days by using above mentioned remedies.

It also depends upon one’s reproductive cycle and also the root cause because of which they are experiencing prolonged menstruation.

My journey through hairfall. 

#blogger #newblogger #fashionblogger #beautyblogger

So I was in 11th standard when I noticed a massive hair fall. Then one day I was oiling my hair💆 I felt some bald spot on my hairline😯. I got scared to death. At that time I was having BLACK SHINY SILKY & VOLUMINOUS HAIRS.😊 My hairs start getting thin, all those lusters starts fading😢. Then I finally consulted a dermatologist. He said it’s because of fungal infections & gave me some hair serum, antibiotics, and multivitamins. In a period of 3 months, my hair regained its natural occurrence💁.

After 3 years I again saw bald patches this time they are so big and hard to hide😩. I moved to another city for further education then I consulted other dermatologists this time she gave me injections on my scalp. And some medications serum and shampoo conditioner.  They retailed for about Rs 5000 😐but they are not showing any betterment. Then I consulted homeopathic Doctor. My hair fall was minimizing but it was taking so much of time.😪 It was about 2 years that I was having those bald patches on my scalp which are so hard to hide I was so afraid being a teenage girl it was a nightmare for me😞.  I cried to sleep almost every day😭. Then my father’s good friend suggested me another dermatologist I consulted him. He was like what took you so long you are carrying it for about 2 years that’s disgusting😡.  Then he also gave me injections and medications😶. Meanwhile, I started using some home remedies. My hair fall minimized so early. In a period of 15 days, I started seeing rays of hope☺ I saw same tiny growth on those patches. The doctor said it will take at least 3 months and maximum 1 year to grow your hairs normally and you have to visit me every 15 days for injections. After 3 months bald patches disappeared and filled with hairs. My hair regained its strength.💪 But Dr said it’s an autoimmune disease and there is no permanent treatment regarding this and it can revert also.  I don’t know what to do about it but for now, my hairs are healthy and happy.😊😇

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW NATURAL HOME REMEDIES ALSO HELPED ME FOR RESCUING HAIR FALL AND TO KEEP MY HAIRS HEALTHY PLEASE WAIT TILL I WRITE MY NEXT BLOG.
