1. Accelerate your period with birth control pills
One way to help or influence the cycle is to take the contraceptive pill. By taking the pill, you can either speed up or delay your period. Instead of taking the pill for twenty-one days as usual, you shorten the intake phase. If you skip it, your period (in this case, withdrawal bleeding) will start earlier than you normally would. After a break of seven days, you can start taking the pill again.
But beware: This variant is not necessarily our first choice when it comes to giving your period a little boost! So, vite, vite and off to the next tip...
2. Start menstruation with home remedies
Ok, ok, we admit that this is not scientifically based advice in the sense of "scientific journal"... BUT, it certainly makes sense to look for suitable alternatives in naturopathy. Because some herbs can contain one or the other supportive measure that can speed up your period. So bring on the vegetables...
3. Vitamin C as an accelerator
Vitamin C has always helped a lot and so it doesn't seem surprising that it can be a real help when it comes to period boosts. Because with the increased intake of vitamin C you can help the estrogen concentration. At the same time, the progesterone level decreases.
All well and good, but what does that mean now?
With an increased estrogen concentration, the blood circulation in the uterus is stimulated and the reduced progesterone affects the thickness of your uterine lining.
A lot of vitamin C is found in these foods:
- Cabbage (turnip greens, kale...)
- berry fruits
