Question menstration

I am a 48 yr old female and still have a heavy period (very. I would like to know if there is something I can do (or take)to slow it down and eventually make it go away. I am not keen on taking HRT as I am not as yet in menopause. Please help!!!! I am desperate.

I suggest visiting one of your local herbalagists or health food stores. You'd be amazed at the knowledge and free help they will offer you. I have problems with PMS (like severe cramping, bloating and heavy periods) and they prescribed Black cohosh and Evening primrose. They have helped and there are no bad side affects.

Has your doctor tested your hormones to see if you for sure are/aren't entering menopause? Since you don't want to take birth control pills for your heavy periods then you best bet would be to follow the first posters advice.
