Menstruation for some women can be very painful, and the discharge of large amounts of blood makes menstruation unpleasant. There are several ways to shorten, relieve, and even stop your period, depending on your needs. However, you should always consult your doctor first. Keep reading if you need some quick tips to stop your period.
Method 1 of 3: Slowing or Stopping Bleeding
Step 1. Take Ibuprofen
Take one dose of Ibuprofen three or four times a day, but be careful not to exceed the maximum dose within 24 hours. For most women, this drug can help reduce menstrual pain, and can reduce bleeding by about 50%. However, in some women, ibuprofen can even stop menstruation completely.
Although Ibuprofen only causes very small side effects, there is still the possibility of an overdose. Talk to your doctor before you take large amounts of ibuprofen or use it for a long time
Step 2. Drink lots of water
Water will cleanse everything in the body faster and help reduce the amount of blood that is expelled.
Step 3. Eat lots of vegetables and fruits
Eating a healthy diet can make you feel better, but eating more fruits and vegetables than usual can shorten your period and make you more comfortable with it.
- Especially green beans have been shown to help relieve or stop menstruation.
- Some women also say that sucking on lemon slices can also temporarily stop menstruation.
Step 4. Drink vinegar
Mix two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in one cup of water. Take this homemade remedy three times a day for best results.
Step 5. Drink gelatin
Mix a pack of gelatin with water and drink it quickly. This mixture can stop menstruation for about three hours.
Step 6. Take herbs
Angelica root, tea made from dried or fresh raspberry leaves, lady mantle, garden sage, and shepherd's purse are believed to help stop or ease menstruation.
Step 7. Use a menstrual cup if you want to hide your period
Menstrual cups can be inserted just above the cervix and just like tampons, they can prevent any discharge from coming out. However, if a tampon can absorb blood, a menstrual cup can only hold it. You can attach one cup that can be used for up to twelve hours. This tool can effectively hide and stop your period at that time.
Method 2 of 3: Speeding Up Menstrual Bleeding
Step 1. Apply heat to your body
Heat can push the "blood" out of the body more quickly. Place a hot compress on your stomach area.
Step 2. Massage the uterine area
This can help relieve cramping pain, and actually encourage your body to 'get things moving'. We recommend that you do it comfortably and privately in your bathroom or bedroom.
Step 3. Have sex
Contractions that occur during orgasm can expel blood from your body more quickly, so your period will last faster. Make sure that you and your partner are comfortable if you have a little mess. Put a towel for intercourse or intercourse in the bathroom so as not to pollute the bedroom and so you don't have to clean.
Method 3 of 3: Long-Term Choice
Step 1. Discuss long-term options with your doctor
You can get an injection called Depo-Provera to stop your period for about 1 to 2 years. You will receive injections from your doctor regularly.
You can also stop your period permanently with surgery. This can be a hysterectomy, which is the surgical removal of the uterus, or endometrial ablation, which is the removal of the endometrial lining of the uterus. This surgery can be dangerous and can complicate pregnancy or eliminate a person's ability to conceive. Consult your doctor before you decide to undergo this surgical option
Step 2. Keep your body in shape
In general, exercise is very important, and staying fit will shorten and lighten your period. This is a great way to shorten your period on an ongoing basis and is beneficial in the long run.
Step 3. Use birth control pills
Birth control pills are usually taken for 21 days followed by a placebo pill for one week. You will have your period within one week of taking the placebo pill. Hormonal contraception is a safe and effective way to regulate menstruation, especially for women who experience painful or excessive menstrual bleeding.
- If you don't want to have your period, you don't need to take a placebo pill and continue taking birth control pills. However, this can cause unexpected or unpleasant side effects. So, consult a doctor before you do it.
- Birth control pills can only be obtained with a doctor's prescription. Discuss your needs with your doctor before and while you take the pill.
- Every woman is a different person and has a different menstrual experience. An option that is suitable for one person may not be suitable for another. Experiment to find the option that works for you.
- Let the natural process run as it is. Everything has its own time duration. This article only gives some tips on how to speed up your period and also helps you to deal with your period in a more comfortable and relaxed way.
- Although menstruation usually lasts for 2 to 7 days, don't be afraid if the duration deviates from the normal time. Especially if you've just had your period (your cycles will be irregular!).
- Comfrey tea is also a great herbal method. This tea can be useful if you have heavy bleeding and can temporarily slow down your menstrual cycle.
