My boyfriend and I have been sexually active for almost 2 years now. I've never had a problem with being late. I started to worry when I noticed in the middle of september that I hadn't gotten my period and it didn't seem like I was going to in the near future. I took a pregnancy test which came out negative and so I thought I was okay. But three weeks later I still didn't have a period. I was worried the test result was wrong. So I retested and it came out negative. Although I felt better, I still felt uneasy because I just wanted to get my period to reassure myself that I wasn't pregnant. I discovered this website and decided to make parsley tea to stimulate menstruation. Between the 20th and 22nd of October, I drank two cups a day, in the morning and evening.

After the first day, I felt mild cramping. With each day, the cramping got worse. Finally, I got my period during school on the 23rd. The cramping isn't any worse than what I usually get. Thank you so much for posting this information on the web! I was going out of my mind because I didn't know what was going on with my body.
