I've read the past entries and informations about parsley tea and other herbals things, but I'm left with two questions
a) most of the sources I read assumed one was trying to start a late period. I'm trying to start mine early by maybe a week (but I'd be happy with any shift at all)... does this sound possible? Anyone done it? My periods are generally very regular and predictable, fyi.
b) Can I just eat the fresh or dried herb and have it be just as good as the tea? I'm at my parents' house right now and I don't really want to have awkward discussions with them about my period and why I want it now and not later when they run into me making it. Deliciousness is not really an issue, I'd be pretty content to sit down with a bag of dried herb and a spoon if that's what it takes. For that matter, will anything besides boiling affect the effectiveness? And if I do eat it, how much and how often?
Any more tips related to this would be extremely appreciated.
Thanks!!!!! Happy holidays!
I got around to buying some parsley on the 28th, and ate some and made a pessary that night. I found out later the amount I probably needed to eat was way more than I actually ate and nothing at all happened. The evening of the 29th I had the place to myself so I made some tea with a full bunch of parsley and simmered it on the stove for a long time without boiling. I drank about three cups of it and ate the parsley... weird I know, and almost certainly unnecessary. I kinda liked it though, so I thought why toss it? heh. Made another pessary. By morning I was totally having my period. It's probably not a full week early because I took my time actually getting the parsley but it's definitely early. I'm kind of impressed!
