how to stop period

I'm a 49 year old woman going through peri-menopause but have no symptoms of actual menopause as I have just the opposite, long (11 or 12 days) painful periods. I cannot take any BCP because I have high blood pressure. Gyno has ruled out endo or cancer or anything else. She said to wait until menopause because my FSH is 53 and my ovaries should be stopping production soon. I suspect I have a hormone imbalance and the long periods are due to too much estrogen and not enough progesterone to match or or vice versa. ANYWAY, I would like to know if anyone knows of any herb that would really slow down or stop my bleeding. There's gotta be SOMETHING!

Re: how to stop period

You might find some useful information in one of John Lee's books, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About (Pre)Menopause, or one of Christiane Northrup's books.

Have you tried a natural progesterone cream?

Re: how to stop period

yes, I tried the cream with no luck. I have also used Prometrium for a 4 months but that actually made my periods worse. I believe I need both hormones. I was put on Loestrin for a month last May but had to stop because of the high blood pressure. When I was on it, it was great so I know I need something like that but cannot take anything like that.
