In July when I was PMsing horribly, and after 7 months with no period, I began to PMs - crampy, acne, etc. I was really nauseous, so I made a cup of Ginger tea and I started a period literally 2 hours later.
Didn't make the connection. August came, same thing happened, 2 hours after drinking the Ginger tea my period started.
So I did some research and herb books say ginger and parsley will bring on a period. I was like psh, yeah right.
So I waited until my next AF time (in theory was sposed to start a week ago )t o drink the Ginger tea. I really had doubts and thought it to be coincidence.
But 2 hours after drinking the tea, Af started (2 days ago). Unfortunately a lot of my PMs symptoms are still present, so I'm wondering if this "forced" period is just that - a forced period - while my hormones are still going nuts; however my face is almost completely clear, which I haven't seen in over a year. I still have headaches, lethargy, mental symptoms and breast soreness, though. Usually that goes away with the onset of AF, but not this time. Oh well.
I heard that this method will only work if you have ovulated, or at least came close to voulating.
Also note that every time I used this method my period was never bright red like it normally is - it's usually brownish orange with red in it.
