I went off birth control about two years ago. When I went off, I went an entire year with no period. My gynecologist prescribed me Provera, a hormone medicine, to help me get my period. It was a 10-day pill and VERY strong.
At the time I was actually traveling out of the country, and I got extremely sick. I was in the LAX international airport when the team I was traveling with made the judgment call that it was not best for me to continue traveling. Thank God!
I ended up being hospitalized for four days. They ran many tests, including performing an MRI, a CT scan, and a spinal tap. I never really got any answers, but I know that I had had some sort of reaction to this medicine.
What happened was that I did get my period, but it was way too much! It was a very scary thing. So since then I have been really trying to regulate my hormones naturally. I have read all sorts of things and have tried many protocols.
Basically since I started using FemiGen capsules, I am back to cycling every two months, and I am very pleased with that. Not only am I starting to get more of a regular cycle, but I feel so much better! I am less moody, less stressed, and finally getting some relief from the bloating and symptoms of a period that had, in the past, not even been flowing.
Also my nails are now crazy long and healthy!

|Supporting Scientific Studies|
|1.||"[T]he level and duration of menstrual pain and the amount of menstrual bleeding were significantly lower in the aromatherapy group than in the placebo group. These results suggest that aromatherapy is effective in alleviating menstrual pain, its duration, and excessive menstrual bleeding. Aromatherapy can be provided as a nonpharmacological pain relief measure and as a part of nursing care given to girls suffering of dysmenorrhea or excessive menstrual bleeding."||Link|
|2.||"The present study indicated that lavender aromatherapy as a potential therapeutic modality could alleviate premenstrual emotional symptoms, which, at least in part, is attributable to the improvement of parasympathetic nervous system activity. This study further implies that HRV could evaluate the efficacy of aromatherapy using various fragrances to relieve premenstrual symptoms, and ultimately, support the mind and body health of women."||Link|
|3.||"Results of bone density, bone mineral content, bone tensile strength and histological analysis also showed similar trend of results, which supported initial observations of this study. It is proposed that hydroalcoholic extract of dried clove buds has bone-preserving efficacy against hypogonadal [hormonally deficient] osteoporosis."||Link|
|4.||"Therapy with beta-caryophyllene [present in many essential oils] may present a promising novel, non-toxic therapeutic option for patients with endometriosis."||Link|
|5.||"After inhalation of clary sage oil, cortisol levels were significantly decreased.... Thyroid stimulating hormone was also reduced.... Clary sage oil has antidepressant-like effect...."||Link|
|6.||"DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."||Link|
|7.||"Most studies, as well as clinically applied experience, have indicated that various essential oils, such as lavender, lemon and bergamot can help to relieve stress, anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Most notably, inhalation of essential oils can communicate signals to the olfactory system and stimulate the brain to exert neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin and dopamine), thereby further regulating mood."||Link|
|8.||"Peppermint oil is harmless and acts locally to inhibit GI [gastrointestinal] smooth muscle contraction.... Peppermint oil solution administered intraluminally can be used as an antispasmodic agent with superior efficacy and fewer side effects than hyoscine-N-butylbromide...."||Link|
