Chamomile And Parsley Remedy For Amenorrhea Or Lack Of Menstruation

Amenorrhea is the lack of menstruation, which can be physiological, that is, for natural reasons such as menopause, or for pathological reasons, for multiple causes.

Although gynecologists often recommend the contraceptive pill to regulate periods, we can also try some natural remedies if we are usually delayed and we are not pregnant.

Discover in this article a very effective remedy based on chamomile and parsley for the lack of menstruation. 

Why do we suffer from a lack of menstruation?

If we are not in the stage prior to the first rule or in menopause, the lack of menstruation for several months may be indicating a health problem that we must diagnose and treat in the appropriate way. Of course, we never consider pregnancy.

The reasons may be the following, as suggested by this information from the US National Library of Medicine:

  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS): The ovaries do not produce eggs.
  • Dysfunction of the hypothalamus due to excessive physical exercise, weight loss or high blood pressure.
  • Too high levels of the hormone prolactin.
  • Premature failure of the ovaries, before the age of menopause.
  • Stress or emotional trauma.
  • Eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia.
  • Thyroid disorders.

Conventional treatment


The most common conventional treatment for menstrual disorders prescribed by gynecologists is the contraceptive pill.

  • However, this option, although it causes regular cycles, is not the solution to the problem that caused the lack of menstruation.
  • Once we stop taking the pill, the irregularities may return.
  • We must also take into account that the contraceptive pill causes other side effects in our body.

We should always value well any medical treatment that we are about to start, with its positive and negative effects on our health.

Natural treatment

Irregular menstruation and fertility

We always recommend medical diagnosis and treatment. However, if we are suffering from a lack of menstruation for specific reasons, such as a stress situation, or if we want to try a natural alternative that can be endorsed by our doctor, we can take this simple and home remedy based on chamomile and parsley. As long as we have your go-ahead, of course.



Chamomile is a very common infusion that we drink after meals to facilitate digestion. However, this medicinal plant hides many other health benefits.

It has very suitable sedative properties for when amenorrhea is related to stress, and a high anti-inflammatory power that can also be very useful depending on the cause of the disorder. This is stated in this study carried out by the Case Western Reserve University (United States).

Decades ago, chamomile infusions were taken both for the lack of periods and for many digestive and nervous disorders.



Parsley is a medicinal plant that we use as a condiment in our recipes but it also has many healing properties. It stands out for its content of vitamins A, C, folic acid and minerals such as magnesium, iron and potassium.

In the case of lack of menstruation, parsley is the most effective plant to stimulate the period, thanks to its ability to enhance uterine contractions, according to this study conducted by the University of East London. In this way, menstruation is facilitated, although it is also dangerous if we take it during pregnancy, because it can cause an abortion.
