Reviews on the use of water pepper (pharmacy)
Malinka - a tool helps and pretty quickly. After giving birth, the doctors sent me on foot to go to the ward and left me without giving any recommendations, without prescribing any preparations for recovery. For five days I lay with heavy bleeding and did not know what to do, then, finally, my son and I were discharged home.
Mom, when she learned about the bleeding, immediately went to the pharmacy and bought a tincture of water pepper. I began to take 30 drops in the morning, afternoon and evening about half an hour before meals. The bleeding immediately became not so abundant, and after about five days it stopped. After that, I still saw the tincture for some time, I wanted to consolidate the result, so to speak. I noticed that menstruation normalized, although even before pregnancy and childbirth there were constant failures. So I advise the tool to all girls. Not only after childbirth, but also if there are problems with menstruation.
Then she learned that you can cook more and decoction. It has the same effect, but does not contain alcohol, which is important if you are breastfeeding. To make it, buy dried grass with water pepper, chop, pour one tablespoon with a glass of water and put it in a water bath. Let it boil and keep on low heat for fifteen minutes. Then leave for an hour, strain and take three times a day for a tablespoon.
Masya - an excellent remedy for irregular or spotting menstruation, bleeding. Doctors are trying to prescribe hormonal drugs all the time, but I’m afraid to take them, so I decided to look for an effective folk method from my problems, and I succeeded. I liked the peppermint tincture most of all, which you can prepare yourself or already ready to buy at the pharmacy. The tool is natural and safe for the body, no chemicals and hormones.
I stopped drinking hormonal contraceptive pills and after some time there were permanent spot bleeding. At first I thought that this phenomenon was temporary, but they either disappeared or appeared again.
Once again, the problem returned just when I was on vacation. There was no opportunity to go to the gynecologist, so I decided to try the tincture, before that I had already read about it on the Internet. Two days later, she began to feel much better, the bleeding stopped, and the menstrual cycle normalized with time. Until now, no such problems have arisen.
Di-Di - the effect of zero. I read a lot and heard that in violation of the cycle and various bleeding helps tincture of water pepper.
Several times she tried to drink the remedy before going to sea, if it was to coincide with her monthly. Logically, the tincture should have stopped the menstruation, or at least made them minimal, but not. Plus one - worth a penny. The taste and smell is terrible, no good for me.
