I decided to start taking Black Cohosh after reading about it here, so I bought some BC Root (500mg) last Thursday. I also bought some Vitamin B Complex (which I've taken before) and have been taking that around the same time I take the BC. I took my first BC tablet that evening around 6:00pm and the next day I noticed a bleed by lunch!
Is Black Cohosh known to induce periods or what? I only have about 2 or 3 periods in a year so I was quite surprised. I'm also a lot heavier than usual and I had a lot of period pain that same night. It was horrible and had to take a pain killer in order to sleep.
Everything seems okay now. Still bleeding but no pain.
