Heat is one of the best and most simple tricks to make your period come faster, especially when you already feel period cramps, inflammation and/or period pains. In order to make your period come overnight or in the next couple of days: apply heat several times a day onto your abdominal area where you feel the period pains. You can also have a warm bath or get a hot water bottle and leave it on your stomach for a couple of minutes. Not only will it help to induce your period, but heat can also help get rid of period cramps.

Heat will help your body's vessels dilate faster, making it easier for your menstruation to come faster.

Can you get your period at 11
OneHowTo Editor
Hi Shonda,

Yes, it is possible. Most will get them around the age of 12, so it is normal. But it is also possible to begin as early as 8 years of age.
can this work for a 14 year old
can this work for 9 year old girls
OneHowTo Editor

If you are only 9 years old, then this is usually too early to get your period. Although some girls will get it earlier or later, the average age is around 12. However, many girls won't get it until they are older than this and it doesn't mean there is anything medically wrong with them. Although it can be hard, the best thing to do is have patience and let nature take its course.

OneHowTo Editor
Hi Selene,

If you are worried, you should probably take a pregnancy test. This will give you an idea if you are pregnant. It might just be you are delayed, but if not, this will help you know either way. If still unsure, seek a doctor's advice.

I had unprotected sex two days before my period, and i am not 4 days late. Could this be natural or could i be pregnant
OneHowTo Editor
Hi Anna
When you have unprotected sex there is always a chance of falling pregnant. Therefore, we recommend taking a pregnancy test to know for sure, you can buy one at your nearest pharmacy. Regards
Hii there me and my husband had sex and I didn’t get my periods. Its been one month and eleven days so I tried pregnancy test its shows negative but still I don’t get my periods so what causes possible??
OneHowTo Editor
Hi Elena,

Pregnancy tests are generally quite effective, but not always. It is possible you are pregnant, but it is also possible you are simply a little late. Do you have any other symptoms or have you noticed any changes in how you feel?
No one

I had safe Sex with my boyfriend in 31st December 2017. I get periods in 14th january 2018. but now i'm getting delay in my periods. what should i do
OneHowTo Editor
Hi Drisha,

If you haven't had sex since your last period, then it is unlikely you will be pregnant. However, if you are unsure if it was indeed menstruation you experienced, then you can take a pregnancy test for reassurance. If you are still not satisfied with this, then a doctor can determine for definite whether you are pregnant.
please is it true that lemon grass tea can induce menstruation or cause miscarriage?
I had my period on the 28th of October, had sex on the 8th of number, it's the 30th of November and no period yet...could I be pregnant ?

hey i tried these but it didnt work
OneHowTo Editor
Hi there Hannah,

The reason why these remedies may not work (if you tried them during the following week after ovulation) is because you have some kind of alteration in your menstruation cycle, which is why we advise you to visit a gynecologist as soon as possible.
Hope this helps

How I get my periods fast. Plz reply soon.....
OneHowTo Editor
Hi there Rina,
Yes, you can still be pregnant although the test was negative. You can try again after two days. However, the safest way to know for sure is to visit a gynecologist.

You should know that you should always use contraceptives when having sexual intercourse in order to prevent pregnancy and other sexually transmitted diseases.
lam 28 yrs mother of 4yrs kid. after birth my periods failed to come back normally. doctors asked to use pill that will receive my ps it worked for that month only .i again spend other 5 months minus periods i tried pills it worked that month but now it 6-7 months not using pill, not pregnant but periods refusef refused.
OneHowTo Editor
There are several reasons why your period may not be coming (You can check them out here: https://health.onehowto.com/article/why-have-i-not-gotten-my-period-7575.html), which is why you should get to the root of the problem before finding a solution.
We advise you to ask the gynecologist to look for the root of the cause as it may be a problem with your thyroid or ovaries. Once the gynecologist has arrived to the source, he or she will be able to advise you on the best treatment (if you have been advised to take contraceptive pills, do not refrain from doing so after the first month, but keep on with the treatment until the specialist says otherwise).

Hope this helps
