Hey, i can’t give any Keto specific advice seeing as I just started keto myself but I have very heavy periods that last for weeks. So much so that I’ve had blood transfusions because of it.
I’ve found that sometimes I can’t get them to stop (and birth control literally never helped at all) but I can get them to lighten up a bit with a few supplements. Personally there is a tea I drink made from something called Lady’s Mantle and I take drops in my water three times a day of something called Shepherd’s Purse. I know there are some other things that can help as well, other natural remedies.
While those two things don’t stop it right away they do slow it down so I don’t feel as faint and don’t have to be hospitalized. Honestly my doctor isn’t convinced by them. However she is the one that suggested I go on a low carb diet. She said that might be all I need to regulate my hormones since other medical intervention has not worked. She didn’t say Keto, I made that choice on my own, but I’m hoping there is something to low carb and regulating hormones/periods.
Also, if your period continues on and you start to feel you heart rate elevate suddenly or if you can check your blood pressure to make sure it’s not cycling up and down too quickly. Both can be signs that you’ve lost too much blood and may need medical intervention. I lost 40% of my blood one time before I went to the hospital. They didn’t take me seriously either when I said I was bleeding too heavily, I had to tell them my heart was messed up for them to take me seriously. Just a warning, I feel like a lot of women don’t realize that prolonged bleeding can be very dangerous.
