Types of Menstrual irregularities

Irregular Menstruation Home Remedies

1. Hibiscus Flowers

Grind 3-4 fresh hibiscus flowers. They are either red or pink, and their scientific name is hibiscus rosa-sinensis. Take five red flowers, grind them to a paste, and have this on an empty stomach with water for 5-7 days before the normal expected due date of your periods. These flowers have an anti-oestrogenic quality, which helps to regularise the oestrogen / progestron balance and initiate the menstrual flow in time.

2. Aloe-leaf Pulp


Skin 2-3 aloe leaves and collect the pulp. Boil it till it becomes brown. Cool. Mash it to make a paste. This has a slight bitter taste, so have it with water or apple juice every morning on an empty stomach for 5-7 days. The dose is a teaspoonful. This also has a purgative action, so decrease the dose if required.

3. Basil

Basil Juice

Have a teaspoon of fresh holy basil­ leaf juice with a teaspoon of honey and a pinch of black pepper powder twice a day for 4-6 weeks. This regularises the periods.

4. Jaggery

Make a decoction with a teaspoon of old jaggery and a teaspoon of pounded omum seeds. Have with hot water twice a day for 3-4 days before the due date of the periods.
