Default Inducing menstruation?

Help! My husband is deployed and his return date just got bumped up. He'll be coming home right in the middle of something he was supposed to miss! I'd really like to encourage Aunt Flo to come a day or two early so he'll miss that. I have heard black and blue cohosh can help. I have a bottle of Labor Ease left over which has black and blue cohosh as well as other herbs to help induce labor. Would this actually work? If I continue to take it will it shorten Aunt Flo's stay? Do I take the same amount I did to induce labor? It worked really well for that purpose.
I have no other health problems and I know I can take the herbal supplements without the fear of blood pressure issues or heart problems but will it help? I need to start within the next day or so.

I have no idea. What I have found it that then you use plants that affect hormones you can never be precisely sure what you will get for an outcome. This is because non of the products are standardized and neither are your own particular hormone levels.. You could end up with a longer periord, a heaver flow, an on and off again flo, no flo, cramps, or just exactly what you want. good luck

I'm open to any natural way. I'm going to double my run today as well to see if more physical activity will help but I'm still wondering about the cohosh...

I was always under the impression that more exercise would delay or stop periods... I dont know how to start them, but we have had luck delaying them with shepards purse....

Hi Talalyn,

This probably isn't the answer you wanted, but I have to make a point here. Your husband is most likely VERY happy to be coming home early to see his loving wife. In my opinion, you need to chill out, relax, and not make such a big issue of this.

I'm sure not having missed that will be of no significance to him at all, unless you make it a big deal. Enjoy your hubby's return to the fullest, and don't fool with Mother Nature!

Yes that's true. Usually only athletes who train really hard though.

Default This could help

Try thyme. It is used to regulate menstrual cycle for women who have very light flow. Make some thyme tea like you would make any herbal tea. Drink one cup in the morning on an empty stomach.
If you are pregnant though please avoid it.

Hope it helps. Most of all have fun and enjoy your time together.

Andreea
