Persistent Uterine Bleeding

Agatha M. Thrash, M.D.
Preventive Medicine

Do not use black cohosh on women, who continue to bleed after three weeks of the use of black cohosh.

Do this:

  • Use two tablespoons of chaste tree, three of red raspberry, one of false unicorn, and two each of witch hazel bark, milk thistle, beth root, and periwinkle leaf.
  • Simmer the non-leaf herbs gently in one quart of water for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Then remove from the fire and add the periwinkle and red raspberry leaves for 30 minutes of steeping.
  • Dilute to five to eight cups, and take this herb preparation throughout the day.

Also helpful for persistent bleeding is a hot foot bath, with a cold pack to the pelvis, for 30 minutes.

Fasting is also helpful for persistent uterine bleeding, but if anemia or weight loss are a problem, fasting may not be a good choice. For anemia use floridex, a preparation from herbs with no added iron, which is very good for anemia.
