"I was bleeding when the news came that he had been killed. I stopped within the hour and I haven't had a period since. I was 38 then; I'm 62 now."
Step 1: Collect information
I have met quite a few women in their late 40s who are eager to have a child, and want to prevent the cessation of their menses until they had achieved their goal. A woman at one of my workshops said she had a child at 53, three years after her last period. To our wail of outrage and surprise, she laughed and advised: "Stay away from new lovers during menopause!"
When not associated with menopause, lack of menstrual flow (indicating, usually, lack of ovulation as well) is called amenorrhea, and constitutes a severe health risk. Bone loss during one pre-menopausal month without menses is the equivalent of one year's bone loss post-menopausally. The most common reasons for the menses to disappear before menopause (excluding pregnancy) are lack of body fat (from eating disorders or heavy athletic training) and stress. These remedies may be used by women of all ages.
Step 2: Engage the energy
If menses cease due to loss and grief, try homeopathic Ignatia. If after a severe emotional shock, try Natrum mur.
Step 3: Nourish and tonify
Step 4: Sedate/Stimulate
Step 5a: Use supplements
Supplements of vitamin E, 200-600 IU daily, have helped women restore ovulation and menstruation. Consistent use brings best results.
Step 6: Break and enter
Ten or more sessions of Rolfing (body work focused on breaking patterns held in the fascia between the muscles) can restore menstrual cycles for women not yet in the menopausal years.
