Dear L,
I have had extremely painful periods all my life and have also contemplated suicide during the unbearable pain, as well as the few days leading up to it. To know that it will continuously come back brings a heaviness to life that can be only understood by those who go through it for years, and years, and years. I have tried going on the pill, with less than positive results. I, too, am looking for a way to supress my menstrual cycle completely. It is better to live without menstruation than to want to die with pain every month.
Good luck on your Path,
With Love


I noticed that most responses to the original post were from a couple of years ago, and I just wanted to see if someone had any updated info, or specifics. I am not interested in suppressing my period long term, just starting it slightly early or holding it off for a couple of days (my significant other and I are taking our first trip since the birth of our daughter...THREE YEARS AGO! yikes! and I happen to know that the trip is on the first day of my bleeding). I know what herbs to use to encourage my menstruation to occur a bit earlier, but was wondering if anyone had a specific regimen they follow that has worked well for them. By the by, as I had read through the three years of posts on here, I just want to remind that every woman's experience is different and special! No one is wrong in the way they experience their bodies, and the most important thing we can do for each other is encourage healthy natural means to make informed choices about our unique and beautiful bodies!
