How To Slow Down Blood Flow During Menstrual Cycle?

Unfortunately, there haven’t been any over-the-counter or prescription drugs which have been able to help menstruating women slow down the blood flow during their periods. However, browsing discussion boards on the Internet certainly does provide some interesting solutions to the problem, with different women having their own remedies to alleviate this monthly complication. Whereas you’ll hear some people swear by drinking apple cider vinegar when their blood flow gets too intense, others believe that 2,000 mg of Vitamin C, readily available in pharmacies, strengthens the walls of the uterus and minimizes the discomfort and embarrassment caused by excessive blood flow.

Some medicines can thin the blood that you will discharge during your menstrual cycle, including ibuprofen. It’s also worthwhile noting that contraceptives such as the morning-after pill can prolong the time between periods, meaning that you won’t have to suffer from excessive blood flow if you’ve got a big event coming up. Periods aren’t always convenient, but ensuring that you remain hygienic, listen to your body and seek medical advice if you are becoming really comfortable will help. It’s a sad fact that we all have to go through our menstrual cycle, and there isn’t an elaborate cure for heavy blood flow just yet.

Many experts stress that you can’t (and shouldn’t) consider taking other pills and potions such as paracetamol. Many menstruating women do so in the hope that their discomfort will be eliminated once and for all, but sadly, this can actually cause more harm than good to your body in some cases.

If you can take Advil (ibuprophen) take 3 tablets every 4-6 hours at the first cramp. The doctor told me it would reduce the amount of flow by 50%.
Take 1000-2000 mg of Vitamin C every day. Vitamin C strengthens the walls of the capillaries in the uterus. Take this a few days before your period and continue until your period is gone.
Make sure your diete is high in Vitamin B.
Please talk to your doctor before taking any supplements, and before taking Advil.

It is possible to decrease the flow of the blood during the menstrual cycle with the help of some pills. However, it is very much advisable that you consult a doctor in this matter since the consequences later on can be really harsh and if you are in your younger years then could definitely pose as a great problem to you in future.

In case you want to do for some reason that you feel can be considered then I suggest you meet your family doctor who will defiantly guide you in this matter and recommend you pills that may cause or may not cause side effects. But do visit the doctor and do not go ahead to consult your friends.

There is no way to slow it down. See your menses is from shedding the lining of the uterus when you don't become pregnant. So unless there is a miracle drug out there, I'm afraid your stuck.
