Pinpoint the reason for the delay. First of all you should remember there are many causes which explain why your period hasn't started, and stress is one of the main reasons. That's why you should relax, an try some of these tricks so your period starts faster. The reasons may be the following:

  • Weight changes
  • Contraceptive pills side effects
  • Excessive exercise
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Endocrine problems
  • Early menopause
  • Premature ovarian failure
  • Drug intake

Use heat. One of the best and most simple tricks to make your period come faster, specially when you already feel cramps and inflammation, is to apply heat in this area of your body several times a day. You can apply hot water on your stomach whilst you're in the bath, or get a hot water bottle and leave it there for a couple of minutes.

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


Use sage. Sage infusions are one of the most effective natural remedies which make your period come. Make tea with this plant that you can find at any herb shop and take a cup in the morning and at night to regulate your menstrual cycle effectively.

This infusion isn't recommendable if you're taking contraceptives, so you may want to have a look at other ways to make your period come with herbs.

If you'd like to know how to make it, don't forget to read our article on How to prepare an infusion of sage.


Use cinnamon. Another trick used to make your period come faster is drinking cinnamon tea, a well-known spice to lure menstruation. It is recommended taking a cup in the morning and at night, always hot.


Use chamomile. This is a plant full of benefits, between them is the capacity to diminish menstrual cramps and to make your period start. It will also help reduce inflammation during these days.

You can take three cups of chamomile tea a day, always strong. It's better if you can get the plant's leaves in a herb shop instead of buying the commercial version.


Use rue. Both rue and Mugwort infusions are also recommendable to make your period come. Choose any of these two plants and drink a cup of tea in the morning and another at night to stimulate your period's arrival.


Pennyroyal is also one of the most useful teas to make your period come, as it unblocks and opens menstruation and if taken regularly, it can even regulate it thanks the the stimulation of hormones.


Use parsley. Another useful herb that can make your menstruation come is Parsley, as this herb has spasmodic properties that can relieve a girl's PMS symptoms and help you induce your period. Learn more on this method in our article How to make your period come with Parsley.


Use ginger. Especially in women who have very irregular menstrual cycles, ginger can bind pain receptors thanks to its zingerone content, which means it will cause small spasms in the uterus, thus helping your menstruation come. Take a look at our article on how to induce your period with ginger for more information.


Use meditation. If lately you've been through a lot of stress and anxiety, it's possible for your period to refract from starting. Therefore, we advise you to try relaxation methods such as yoga, meditation and taking a nice warm bath. You'll be surprised at how effective this is.


Take foods high in vitamin C. The intake of this vitamin can help your progesterone levels lower, which in turn will favor the arrival of your period. There are several ways you can use vitamin C to induce your period, though one of the best and safest ways is to add certain ingredients to your diet such as the following:

  • Pomegranate
  • Yellow pepper
  • Broccoli
  • Kale
  • Guava

It's important that you avoid these remedies if you think you're pregnant and wait at least ten days before taking a pregnancy test, or it will come out negative.

If you have missed your menstruation for more than 15 days and you're not pregnant, you must visit your gynecologist as soon as possible. You should know there are several reasons why your period is late.

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 ?

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

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.

There are several reasons why your period may not be coming (You can check them out here:, 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

Some medicines may interfere with your period. Make sure you don't have hyperthyroidism or any other condition which may make your period stop completely. Ask for a second opinion from another doctor (gynecologist) to know the exact cause.
Hope this helps
