Painful Periods & Uterine fibroids


Sadly, my story is far too familiar. When womanhood began pouring out of me during my fifth grade year it marked the beginning of a monthly cycle of misery. On that fateful day my parents rushed to my school with a change of clothes and the female products necessary to rescue me from the girl’s bathroom. Release from the cycle of pain would not be so easily secured. Over the next twenty-five years I normally kept a supply of over the counter female remedies in my purse at all times. The onset and intensity of my menstrual pain was too unbearable for even a quick trip to the corner store once my cycle began.


In my late twenties the development of uterine fibroids intensified an already intolerable state of things. The fibroids caused my cycles to increase in volume and duration. A prescription for birth control pills provided some normalcy and relief but these were not the healing answers I so badly needed. My body continued to show serious signs of hormonal imbalance. During routine salon visit for a wash and cut in 1996, my stylist informed me she felt I had abnormal hair loss. She had to be right; the apparent hair loss was visible every time I ran a brush through my hair.

Browsing through the herbal remedies at my local health food store I came across a jar of Progesterone Cream, a hormonal support product made from Wild Yam. I began rubbing a small amount into my skin morning and evening. Within a couple of weeks my hair stopped falling out and my next cycle was nearly normal. The wild yam continued to prove itself and within a few months the heavy bleeding and painful cycles had greatly subsided.

Two years later in 1998, I discovered the power of herbal extracts and the Female Formula which contained a list of balancing herbs used by women for hundreds of years. The Female Formula brought an end to Twenty Five years of monthly misery.

What to expect using the Female Formula

Working with hundreds of women over the past 15 years a pattern has emerged in the way the Female Formula generally affects the cycles over the first three months of use. Three months is the average time needed to normalize a hormonally unbalanced system. It is not uncommon to skip a cycle during the first full month of using the Female Formula. The second month the cycle will resume with less hormonal issues. Most women experience greatly improved to normal cycles by the third month.

The Ex-Mens Formula is an excellent aid and can be used with great results during a cycle where there is excessive bleeding. During my heavy bleeding I found it slowed down my flow in a matter of a few hours. This formula can provide additional support while the fibroids are clearing and the system is balancing.

Here is a tried and true way to stop the misery quickly without drugs.

  • -1/2 tsp lobelia is 4 ounces water
  • 15 min later
  • -1/2 tbsp crampbark
  • 15 min later
  • -1 tsp antispasmodic
  • 15 min later
  • -1/2 tbsp crampbark
  • Alternate between crampbark and antispasmodic every 15 min .  On the hour throw in lobelia. 
  • Pain will eventually subside, it can take longer to subside when you pain level is already super high. As soon as you feel discomfort begin the herbal supports and they are often very quick and effective.
