How to regulate your period without drugs
By Dr. Suzanne G Harper
This is a simple technique that works by mimicking the action of the full moon to stimulate ovulation, thereby triggering a period on Day 29 of the artificially created cycle.
Sleep in TOTAL darkness. This means blackout conditions, i.e. no light coming into your bedroom above or at the sides of the curtain rail. This starts the count at Night 1.
Use a red photographer’s light bulb in a torch if you need to get up at night to go to the toilet.
On Nights 14, 15 & 16 (3 nights in all) sleep with the lights on.
On Nights 17 through to 28 sleep in total darkness.
On Day 29, you should start to bleed. If not, start the count again as Day 1 and repeat the technique.
Any time that you start to bleed before Day 29 automatically becomes Day 1 of a new cycle and you start the technique again. This usually works in 2-3 cycles.
