I had really bad cramps last night and ever since I have gone through a super tampon every hour. Lots of clots as well. This is making me a little nervous. I am wondering if the cause for this is that all natural hormonal balance stuff I was taking. Has anyone taking balance stuff, etc. had this issue? Sorry for the

certain herbs and supplements will make AF heavier and harder. I know Vitex seems to make mine worse if I don't take aspirin to counter act that specific bonus to the herb (most people who turn to vitex need the lining boost, I.. do not).

Oh no.

I dont have any advice for you just sympathy. I went through the same thing a few days ago. My second period off the pill and it was a nightmare for about a day and a half. Hopefully the heaviness doesn't last long.

The hormone balancer has chasteberry, black colosh, and a couple other herbs like wort? This is horrible. I had to run out to target on my break to get more tampons. I bought a box of ClearBlue tests because I feel off. Hot flashes included in this. >:/

I'm sorry

My first period back in June was also the one that I was taking Vitex to induce, it was AWFUL. Similar to yours, it was like 1.5 hours at most that I could leave a super tampon in for. And really bad cramps.

So it could definitely be the herbs you are taking. I hope it eases up soon -- I'm sure it will in a few hours.

I hope the heaviness/cramping/clots don't last too long. I wouldn't be surprised if you feel off because this cycle is kind of wonky.

I know for me, when my flow is that heavy and I have lots of clots, I can't use tampons because they make the cramps way worse!

Hope you feel like normal soon, my dear!

Oh I'm so sorry! Can you go home and just spent some quality time with the heating pad? Hopefully it doesn't last too long. I'm sorry, I can't give you any advise on the supplements.

Update, today is much much better!!! Holy cow I thought it wasn't going to stop yesterday! I went home and it still hadn't slowed so I just had a beer and sat on the couch. Apparently that's what helped it because I was "normal" after that. The digital O came in the mail yesterday and I am not gonna lie, it's a little fancy for me hehehe
