Home Remedies for Irregular Periods

Home Remedies for Irregular Periods

An irregular period, medically known as oligomenorrhea, is a common problem among women. It usually refers to infrequent periods with intervals of more than 35 days.
A normal menstrual cycle ranges from 21 to 35 days. Menstrual bleeding generally lasts for two to seven days. Women normally have 11 to 13 periods in a year, but those with oligomenorrhea may have fewer than six or seven periods.
Irregular periods are characterized by variations in the time between each of your periodsthe number of days that your periods last, and abnormal blood loss (whether less or more than usual) during a period.
A number of factors can cause this problem, such as eating disorders, significant weight loss or gain, anemia, menopause, thyroid disorders, hormonal imbalance, liver disease, tuberculosis, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes, recent birth or miscarriage, polycystic ovarian syndrome, uterine abnormalities, and other health conditions.
Lifestyle triggers like increased exercise, smoking, alcohol abuse, caffeine, travel, stress, and certain medications and birth control pills can also contribute to this problem. Furthermore, a 2005 European study indicates that asthma and hay fever may also be linked to irregular periods.
Menstrual cycles tend to be irregular during the first few years after menstruation starts and also at the end of a woman’s menstrual years, when she is approaching menopause.
In addition, as different women are likely to have different menstrual patterns, slight irregularities once in a while should not be a cause for concern.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for irregular periods.

1. Ginger

Ginger is highly beneficial in regulating menstrual cycles and also relieving menstrual pain. It promotes menstruation and hence is good when dealing with delayed or scanty periods.
  1. Boil one-half teaspoon of freshly ground ginger in a cup of water for five to seven minutes.
  2. Add a little sugar.
  3. Drink this three times a day after meals.
  4. Do this for about one month or more.

2. Cinnamon

Cinnamon is considered useful for regulating menstrual cycles and reducing menstrual cramps. According to traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed to have a warming effect on the body.
Also, it contains hydroxychalcone that helps regulate insulin levels and is suspected to have an effect on menstrual regularity. A study analyzing the effects of cinnamon extract on menstrual cycles in women with polycystic ovary syndrome is currently underway.
  • Simply add one-half teaspoon of cinnamon powder to a glass of milk. Drink this daily for several weeks.
  • You can also drink cinnamon tea, sprinkle cinnamon on your foods, or chew cinnamon sticks regularly.

3. Sesame Seeds and Jaggery

Sesame seeds are useful in regulating menstrual cycles as they help balance your hormones. They are loaded with lignans that help bind excess hormones. Plus, they contain essential fatty acids that promote optimal hormone production. Jaggery, too, helps regulate menstrual cycles due to its warming effects.

  1. Dry roast a handful of sesame seeds.
  2. Grind them along with one teaspoon of jaggery into a fine powder.
  3. Take one teaspoon of this powder daily on an empty stomach in the luteal phase, or second half of your menstrual cycle (two weeks before your period starts), for a few months.
Simply eating a piece of jaggery, also known as gur, will also help regulate menstruation.
Note: Do not use this remedy during your periods.

4. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera helps treat menstrual irregularities naturally by regulating your hormones.
  1. Extract fresh aloe vera gel from an aloe leaf.
  2. Mix in one teaspoon of honey.
  3. Consume it daily before having your breakfast.
  4. Follow this remedy for about three months.
Note: Do not use this remedy during your periods.

5. Unripe Papaya

Green, unripe papaya works as a potent emmenagogue. It is considered useful in regulating menstrual flow as it helps contract muscle fibers in the uterus.
It is particularly useful for irregular periods associated with menopause and stress. Consume unripe papaya juice regularly for a few months. Do not drink it during your periods.

6. Turmeric

Being a warming herb, turmeric is also considered helpful in regulating menstruation and balancing hormones. Its emmenagogue properties help stimulate menstrual flow. Moreover, its antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties relieve menstrual pain.
  • Consume one-quarter teaspoon of turmeric with milk, honey or jaggery. Take it daily for several weeks or until you see improvement.
  • You can also take turmeric in supplement form; consult your doctor for proper dosage.

Loss of Appetite

♦ Take equal quantities (a pinch to one-fourth of teaspoon) of freshly ground black pepper, asafoetida, dried mint powder, thyme and seeds of large cardamom. Boil in water till one fourth remains. Give it lukewarm combined with a bit of honey for 2 times a day.

Prevent Flathead in babies

Teething Pains

Skin rashes

♦ To treat skin rashes and itching, combine a small amount of turmeric powder with aloe vera or water to form a paste and apply on the affected area.

Dry skin

♦ If the child has excessive dry and flaky skin then use a paste made of chickpea flour (besan), Camphor (a pinch) and milk/rose water before bath.

Baby Massage

♦ Use a good Ayurvedic oil to massage babies every day before bath. Massaging not only strengthens baby’s muscles and bones but also gives a bonding time for the mother and baby. Many kids have what is known as “growing pains” and have muscular pain in legs and arms during night. A gentle massage before bedtime would ensure that they don’t have any pains and sleep well.
The oil that Dadi used for all the kids was Dabur Lal Tail and its effects can be seen in all the beautiful and healthy kids in our family including Samaira. I trusted her choice and used Dabur Lal Tail for her body massage everyday.
