4 Effective Herbs to Induce your Period
Is it even possible to induce or delay menstruation? I must say that I was perplexed when a lady asked this question in a group on Facebook. The woman said that she is in a distant marriage, and will be seeing her husband in a week which happens to be the same week she will be menstruating. In order to make her journey worth it (sexually), she needed something she can take to induce her period.
Unfortunately, she didn’t get the answer to her question because it completely sounded strange to a lot of people; while others opined that there will be consequences health-wise if she eventually do that. Well, I believe anything is possible once you have the right information. As always, I did some online research from reputable sources and surprisingly, it is possible to induce your period.
Although the natural methods are not backed scientifically, however, they have shown to be effective without causing any harm to users. Below are natural ways to make your period come faster.

Are there other ways to induce my period?
Apart from using natural medicine, another way to induce your period is by having sex.
Any sexual activity capable of causing giving you orgasm(s) is believed to stimulate your period. How does it work? Having an orgasm makes the cervix dilate and creates a vacuum to pull menstrual blood down.
Despite being natural remedies, it is advisable that you speak with your healthcare provider before consuming them. Also, if you have any pre-existing health conditions and when taking any medication, kindly discuss them with your health provider before taking any herbs.
