Black Cohosh

One of the “oldest tricks in the book” when it comes to herbal remedies for absent periods, black cohosh has been used for hundreds of years to bring on a menstrual period. This herb aides in the shedding of the uterine lining, and helps to regulate the entire menstrual cycle, as well as calm and support the uterus.

White Peony

White peony is known to help increase the circulation and build the blood flow to all of the reproductive organs. It is also good for relaxation and easing pain. It is a great herbal remedy for moving blood to the pelvic area, which is good for women who have an absent period and need to get it started again.

Dong Quai

Dong Quai is a very famous herbal remedy, especially for absent or irregular periods. Dong Quai increases blood flow to the uterus and helps to bring on a period. It is also a great treatment option for iron deficiency and anemia. It is a great herbal option for balancing and strengthening the uterus too.

Yarrow Root

Yarrow root is a very popular herb for helping to bring on menstrual periods. It is known for relaxing smooth muscles in the uterus, which can bring on a period. However, it can also cause miscarriage, so if there is even a small chance that a woman is pregnant, she should never use Yarrow Root.


Rosemary is a common garden herb which can be used to bring on menstruation. It has been used for this purpose for thousands of years. If you already have heavy periods, you should avoid using rosemary, same thing if you are possibly pregnant. However, pregnant women and women with heavy periods should be able to use rosemary for cooking with no side effects.
