Delayed Periods After Childbirth

Periods usually restart within 6-8 weeks of birth, but may be delayed for several months if you are breast-feeding on demand. Orthodox treatment is to give drugs to stimulate ovulation or recommend a D and C to make sure that none of the products of conception remain in the womb. Before such measures are taken, try one or other of the remedies below.

Specific remedies to be taken every 12 hours for up to 7 days

  • Lack of thirst, weepiness, feeling worse in hot, stuffy surroundings Pulsatilla 30c
  • Feeling chilly, tired, depressed, irritable, and turned off by sex, constipated Sepia 30c
