Parsley for period

Parsley is a mildly emmenagogues herb i.e. it induces the menstrual blood flow by stimulating our system. Parsley causes the uterine track to contract, which in turn stimulates the uterus to shred its lining due to which period is induced, this is also thanks to its high content in vitamin C. According to some people parsley can even be used to induce natural abortion. But there is no scientific proof about natural abortion from parsley.

Parsley can be obtained easily from any grocery store or market. You can find it either in the plant or dried, available in many grocery stores. Also you can grow your very own parsley in your kitchen garden.

There are two ways in which parsley can be used to induce period which are mentioned below.

How to Make your Period Come with Parsley - Parsley for period

Method 1: Parsley tea

The first way to take parsley to make your period come is by drinking it as a tea. Parsley tea can be made with either fresh parsley or dried parsley. But most people prefer fresh parsley as they are more potent than the dried ones.

To make parsley tea you will need:

  • Parsley (fresh or dried)
  • Pot containing water
  • Pitcher
  • Cup


  1. At first put the pot containing water on a stove and heat it.
  2. Then put some parsley in the pitcher. Use about a handful of parsley for each cup. Using more than a handful will not harm but using very less amount of parsley is not likely to show any result. If you are using dried parsley then use a teaspoon full of parsley per cup.
  3. When the water is hot, pour the water over the parsley kept in the pitcher. Take care that the water is hot but not boiling. This is because adding boiling water over parsley will weaken its effects.
  4. Let it steep for 15–30 minutes. The longer it steeps, the more potent the concoction is.
  5. Strain the concoction in a cup and drink it.
  6. You can consume parsley tea about 3-4 times per day.

Method 2: Parsley pessary

Parsley pessary is the method of inserting parsley in the vagina to induce period. Parsley pessary helps in softening the cervix due to which it opens and period is induced.

To make a parsley pessary take 3–4 sprigs of fresh parsley and wrap it in a cheese cloth. Then insert it in the vagina till it touches your cervix.

For some people wrapping the parsley sprigs is not necessary. They just tie a string at the end of the stems and insert them in the vagina till it touches your cervix. The string helps in pulling out the sprigs later on.

Change the parsley pessary at an interval of every 8–12 hours. If you prefer, there are also other herbs to make your period come that are as effective as parsley too.

Hi Carmen

I am pregnant but I want to abort I have taken a medicine fron the gynac only two days I was bleeding after that I have got got my periods this was in the month of May please help me what should I do
Please only use organic parsley as a pessary! This is so important. Also, ditto for tampons. Since cotton isn't a food pesticides are even less regulated!
What if some of the leaves fall off and get stuck in your vagina?

Make sure you wrap the parsley before inserting it. However, you shouldn't worry if it has happened, your body will expel it once your period starts.
