Raspberry Leaf Tea and Menstrual Bleeding

Raspberry leaf is herb commonly associated with pregnancy and labour. Less known is how this amazing herb can also help regulate and tone women’s reproductive organs.

My knowledge of raspberry leaf tea comes from my direct experience with using this powerful herb. I was going through a stressful phase in my life when I started menstruating more than usual and more frequently. I was experiencing heavier and more profuse bleeding. It felt like the period would never stop, this would continue for weeks on end until eventually for a few days it would cease and I would have a short break.  You can imagine the amount of blood loss and the number of sanitary towels I went through, it was very disrupting, worrying and caused me much anxiety.

The bleeding was not only heavy, it was very dark, clotty and large pieces of clotted tissue (resembling pieces of liver) would also come out. I thought this was just a phase and it would all end soon, but it didn’t it only got worse. This heavy bleeding then started to dictate every area of my life, I had to think twice before leaving home, and it affected my work schedule and going out socially.

After going for a blood test, I received a phone call from the surgery that same day saying that my blood levels very low and I needed to go to Accident & Emergency immediately. I was so worried and frightened thinking and imagining the worst. After conducting further blood tests at the hospital I was told by the doctor that I needed to have a blood transfusion. I really couldn’t believe it I was so afraid and nervous about the procedure. Even though I did not feel comfortable with the idea of having a blood transfusion, I went through with it because I knew I needed immediate help.

The blood transfusion pumped me up with much needed blood, but it didn’t solve my problem of the blood loss that was still going on. The doctors prescribed me with drugs that would apparently cease my bleeding, as much as I don’t like taking drugs – I took them in desperation hoping for the best, thinking to myself ‘drugs always work even if they come with side effects’. I started taking these drugs and nothing happened, my bleeding didn’t stop, I noticed that the blood flow had slightly reduced but the drugs did not stop my bleeding.

I then turned to research various herbs and try herbal teas to see if that would help. I started experimenting Nettle, Yarrow and several other herbs that would help build the blood. These herbs helped with energy levels and reduced blood my flow, but they did not completely stop my bleeding.

A friend recommended Raspberry Leaf tea and said that it would not only stop my bleeding but also help build iron in the blood. I was so excited to hear this news, I immediately ordered some organic raspberry leaves online and could not wait to try it out.

After just 1 cup of Raspberry Leaf tea my bleeding had stopped! I was totally amazed. I could actually feel the tea going towards my uterus area; it was a strange ‘tugging’ like feeling. Was Raspberry Leaf tea that miracle I had been looking for? I was curious to find out more so I started to research this life saving herb and discovered that Raspberry Leaf is known as ‘the woman’s herb’, it contains the alkaloid fragrine which can help to tone and strengthen the uterus and pelvic area. As quoted by Dr Christopher, who also endorses Raspberry Leaf tea as an effective herb for regulating women’s reproductive organs; he said ‘This herb works wonderfully to heal menstrual difficulties. When one woman experiences too profuse a menstruation she chews a few fresh or dried Red Raspberry leaves. In just a couple of hours the flow is reduced to normal’.

Red Raspberry leaves also contain iron citrate, hence this herb’s remarkable blood making properties. The leaves also contain many nutrients including pectin, malic acid, potassium chloride and potassium sulphate. These potassium compounds have been found to promote a healing effect on tissue. I now drink this wonderful tea on a daily basis, and I feel it has definitely helped me regulate my menstrual cycle.

    Thank you for sharing your story. I can so much related of what you’ve been gone through. I have been searching high and low on any types of remedies of my heavy flow as well. I just had 2 units of blood transfusion two weeks ago, also my Gyn had given me MedroxyPROGESTERone for 10 days , after had taken this meds Im having a heavy flow again. I am glad I stumble on your story, hopefully this raspberry tea would help me,too.

      Thank you for your comment and sharing your personal journey. I have been along the path of heavy bleeding and totally understand that it is both uncomfortable and draining. Try and obtain loose organic raspberry leaf tea (not the ones in tea bags they are not that effective), if you don’t have any luck finding any please let me know and you can purchase it directly from us.

      The other remedy that I have found very helpful is Cayenne tincture, that stops bleeding almost immediately. Make sure you get the tincture and not cayenne powder (it does not have the same potency). One dropper full of cayenne tincture in a glass of water should stop bleeding and during the day I would suggest you drink cups full of organic red raspberry leaf tea.

      I am guessing you have been checked out for fibroids, cysts or endometriosis?

      Best wishes,

      Thank you for your comment. Raspberry Leaf tea is excellent as it will not only help tone the uterus but it will provide bioavailable nutrition for it with vitamins, minerals and tissue salts. Make sure the raspberry leaves are organic and loose is best, I find tea bags ineffective. We sell organic loose raspberry leaf tea so get in touch if you want to purchase some. Furthermore Cayenne tincture helps to stop bleeding within minutes so that is definately fast if you want to add that to your routine. We also sell Cayenne tincture…Hope that helps.
      Regards, Jaina

    Hi Mains,,
    You did mention of fibroids and cyst. Can I take same red raspberry tea as well. Also, my flow is not the best. I don’t have excessive flow. It just comes for two days and it stops and the flow is not that good. What would you suggest.

    OMG!!! Thank you so much for sharing. I have very heavy periods as in I’m soaking pads and tampons & as soon as I change one I’m already dropping blood again and have blood clots the size of my palm….. I got diagnosed with menorrhagia as well you know (excessive bleeding).. I’m on birth control but it chooses when it wants to come and go but when it’s here it’s hell… just bleeding after bleeding… it disrupts my life honestly… I’ve ruined underwear and pants because of it. So I’m definitely going to try this. Thank you so much.!

    What have you found to be effective in shrinking fibroids? Items what would NOT lower blood sugar and blood pressure. Over the years I’ve tried, cayenne in larger doses, systemic and proteilytic enzymes (VitalZyme), herbal formulas, ozone injections, I would love to try turkey tail mushroom which has helped so many women but it gives me heart palpitations and not able to figure out why (I’ve done a search and many women also experience the palpitations). For those who can take it they are lucky because it will shrink fibroids.

    HI!! Thank you for sharing!! I also had very difficult periods and start drinking the raspberry tea, the problem is that this month instead of a period I had some spotting, any idea if that can be a side effect of the tea?

    Hi all,
    Please make sure that your heavy bleeding is not caused by uterine fibroids or another issue. There are also ways to decrease fibroid w/o surgery. I wish I had known this as I had two major surgeries, blood infusions, emergency D&C and years of infertility. I was given Rx drugs to slow the bleeding down, but these made me hemorrhage! I was told I’d never have children. Luckily I changed my lifestyle and was able to conceive (along w/ a reconstructive uterine surgery from an out of state Dr.)… But I was tired of Dr’s telling me “there was nothing they could do” for me except surgery

    So is raspberry tea good for heavy periods bc of Uterine Fibroids?
    I used it in labor and it helped so much but would love to use it during my cycles since the fibroids cause horrible blood clots as well.
