Question Herbs for heavy periods? Daughter needs relief!

My 36 year old daughter has always had painful periods with an extremely heavy flow. Her doctor put her on birth control pills for it, even though she has her tubes tied. She would prefer to find something natural/herbal for this rather than the expense of the BC pills. Anyone know of any herbal meds for this?

Re: Herbs for heavy periods? Daughter needs relief!

I'm sorry I can't comment on herbal supplements, but was wondering if your daughter has been checked for fibroids, cysts, endometriosis or other chronic problems that could cause heavy bleeding? I'm 46 and have always had painful, heavy periods. I finally was diagnosed with endometriosis after a laparoscopy, but I only got the surgery after having daily chronic pain for a year. There may be something going on with your daughter that could be fixed. You mentioned the cost of pills...does she have insurance?

Vitamin B-12 is supposed to help with cramps, also evening primrose oil and camamil tea. Hope she feels better
