ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

FCS II and FC with Dong quai, black cohosh, blue cohosh should be stopped if you find out that     you are pregnant.

If you have a history of premature delivery, it is a good idea to abstain from using red raspberry.

Vitamin A helps lubricate the fallopian tubes and may help in preventing tubal pregnancy.

A prolapsed transverse colon can put pressure on female organs. (see page Uterus-6)

A weakened liver may also cause an hormonal imbalance.  Liver Balance (formally LIV-C) or liver combos have helped with prolonged menses when conventional herbal remedies failed.

A deficiency in Vitamin D and A can cause heavy cycles.  So can a lack of Calcium and B complex.

Headaches around menstruation can indicate a calcium deficiency.

Inadequate kidney function also effects menstruation.

Menstrual cramps can come from a lack of estrogen, endrometriosis, a growth, or a toxic bowel.
