How To Use Parsley to Induce A Period

How to Use Parsley to Induce a PeriodBefore I begin, I want to emphasize that this post should not be taken as medical advice. It is simply a remedy that I tried and it happened to work. DO NOT try if you might be pregnant as it could potentially cause a miscarriage. This is simply to induce a period.

I had recently stopped hormonal birth control and my period was wonky. I had been spotting for days and I just wanted my period to start so I could get it over with.

I tried using the method of taking large doses of Vitamin C but all it seemed to do was cause cramping. No thank you.

I really wanted to get this period started and begin to get things back on track. I scoured the intent and found that parsley is actually very good a jump-starting a period. Supposedly, it works because parsley is a mild emmenagogue which stimulates menstruation (you learn something every day).

I again want to mention that this post is not medical advice and this remedy should only be used if pregnancy is not the cause for delay. If you are pregnant using parsley could cause a miscarriage.

I purchased some fresh, flat parsley for this. You can purchase it in the fresh produce section of your local grocer. I’ve also heard of people using the dried flakes but fresh is more potent and more likely to give you the results that you are looking for.

In a pot, bring water to a boil. While the water is heating up, wash the parsley and finely chop it — even the stalks. After the water is at a boil, turn the temperature to medium and put in the parsley.

Allow the parsley to steep in the water for about 20 minutes or so. You will want the water to be a greenish yellow. The darker the color the better. However, be sure not to burn off all of the water!

Pour the living and the leaves into a glass and allow to cool until drinkable. Then drink the tea as well as the parsley itself.

I’m going to warn you, this tea tastes pretty nasty. I’ve hear of some people trying to use sugar or honey to make it more palatable, but honestly its pretty bad either way — especially the leaves.

Try to drink this tea approximately 4 times a day or until your period starts. I have used this method twice and both times my period started within a day and a half of when I started to drink the tea.

As I said before, this isn’t medical advice, I am just going off of my own experiences and what my successes were. Let me know whether you were successful in the comments section below!

Hi Going to share my real story, I have had 5 miscarriage, 4 miscarriages I have passed naturally at 9-10 weeks . But at the time of 5th miscarriage, 8 weeks pregnancy was not clearing out naturally. So after finding no heartbeat I waited month and half to clear it out naturally,.It was like little spotting but not heavy to clean uterus. then my doc recommended 2 ways medicine or D&C. But I don't like both. D&C was expensive too. I have scheduled surgical procedure then I cancelled 2 times .

Then I started googling and found these vitamins c and parsley tea method. Thanks God parsley tea ☕ worked out after 2 days. I took 3-4 cups tea on warm temperature for 2 days. I got dishearted on 3rd day. And I thought I should stop taking it any more. But magic happened.. I got heavy bleeding started at 3rd day like 12pm.

Thanks for help.

It WORKS! I had unprotected sex and got nutted in once and I was so paranoid and unhappy. I was damn near considering suicide. BUT. I found this article and my culture places a lot of faith in teas and herbs so I knew it'd work. I bought a shit ton of parsley and boiled it with like half a gallon of water. I drank the tea like water. I drank so much that my piss was clear. Started drinking the tea at 1600 and by 0643 the next day I went to take a shit (it makes you shit too btw) and I wiped and saw blood. It works. Follow her instructions on how to boil it. I had let it boil an extra 7 minutes. But I made it hella strong. Doesn't taste bad. It tastes earthy after it's boiled. The leaves have a nice texture when you eat them too. I definitely recommend.

This works!!!! My period was so out of whack due to a scheduling mishap with my birth control and I just wanted a hard reset.. In the morning I drank 2 8oz cups with a couple TBSPs of chopped parsley, and took a large dose of vitamin C. Around 4pm I drank 2 more cups and by 8pm my period was here!
