No Periods for Almost 4 Years, Pls Help

Posted by Anonymous (Anonymous) on 09/16/2011

Hi Ted, Greetings to you. I got ur name from earthclinic and i would like to share this problem because i dont know who else to go to. But first, thank you for helping so many others. You see, I live in Nigeria, Africa and am not overweight, just slight and petite. In my twenties i had regular but very heavy periods. Sometimes, it comes twice a month. But surprisingly, in 2007. i skipped a period and from then on its been downhill for my periods. Later in 2007, it stopped completely. In 2008, i went to the hospital and underwent many tests among which is Hormone test, the result said that i had hormonal imbalance. The doctors gave me pills/drugs, which i later found out that they where contraceptives somehow. I faithfully took the pills and after some weeks, the period came, but it was so heavy with BLACK CLOTS, I had never experienced such. This went on for 2 weeks and then some days. I stopped the drugs after that. Since then, i have been looking for an alternative to drugs.

Safe to say that for 3 and a half years now, I HAVE HAD NO PERIODS AND I AM WORRIED BECAUSE I AM NOT YET MARRIED. I keep having hot flashes and getting tired. Last week, i stumbled upon Earth clinic and decided to try some of the remedies. I bought Blackstrap Molasses and started immediately this monday. I have taken it for 5 days now and i havent gotten any result. On the contrary, the hot flashes increased and am very uncomfortable and disappointed. I am using 1 tablespoon Blackstrap Molasses twice daily in warm water. Pls can you help me with some other remedy?

The usual problems are lack of vitamin E, natural vitamin E, vitamin b complex, B50, magnesium citrate, and lower progesterone hormones for lack of menstruation. The black clots may be a factor of not menstruating, so the simplest remedy is to take citrates, found in apples, lemon, lime for example. More specific citrate sources are sodium citrate and potassium citrate, 1/4 teaspoon each once a day 30 minutes after a meal. The citrate will unclot the menstruation periods. Ted

The blackstrap molasses is to STOP periods, not start them.
