Patient discussion about regulate

Q. My hormones are always out of wake. How can I regulate my periods? I like to try with herbs. I am 32 years old and I have 2 children. After my second delivery I had irregular periods. I have been on BC most of my life to regulate my periods but I don't like them. And I feel sick. My physician said that my thyroid is low but within normal range. My hormones are always out of wake. How can I regulate my periods? I like to try with herbs.

A. My dear your decision is good. There is nothing to feel sick; most of the women are having this problem. My daughter had the same problem like you; we tried so many meds but in vain. At last we tried with herbal meds really it is amazing, after that she had regular period. Now she is happy. I suggest you to try with herbal meds. Good Luck.
