Does any other mom suffer from amenorrhea?

I am wondering if there is any cure or treatment for amenorrhea or if anyone else has had any experience with it? I would give anything to be able to get pregnant. Our only daughter is adopted. We love her very much, but would love to be able to give her a brother or sister. I have read about several different herbs that can reverse amenorrhea, but just not sure. HELP!

  • The best way to treat this condition is by making some changes in your diet and lifestyle pattern along with the intake of some herbal remedies.

    Relaxation: Stress and mental tension can result in amenorrhea. Therefore, it is essential for you to take out time for relaxation and perform some deep breathing exercises and meditate. This brings about a feeling of calmness and helps relax the body and mind.

    Avoid over exercising: Exercising on a regular basis is healthy for your body but over exercising can lead to amenorrhea. You must restrict your exercise sessions to 15-30 minutes a day and refrain from working out to the extent of exhaustion.

    Yarrow: This herb is also known as Achillea millefolium and contains high amount of zinc. It is recommended for the treatment of amenorrhea and can be taken as herbal tea, tincture or capsule.

  • Blue Cohosh: This herb is also known as Caulophyllum thalictroides and has been widely used in Native American medicine to treat amenorrhea. It is a popular emmenagogue that contains the phytochemical calulopsponin and induces menstruation by stimulating contractions and promoting the flow of blood to the pelvis.

    Mother wort: This herb is a popular emmenagogue, sedative and nervine tonic that helps regulate menstruation by calming the central nervous system and stimulating pelvic contractions.
