Hi everyone.. I'm going to give NBE another shot.. I was trying it before (which is 5yrs ago) and I did saw a some progress in the 4 months that I was using it.. I'm a AA70.. I did gain a cup when I was using on PM and the pills my doctor gave me..

I was using this method for almost a 8months.. but on the 6th month I was using it.. my period didnt came.. and I stil did continue using it and on the 3rd month that I missed my period.. I stopped using it as I got to scared.. and when I got my period it went on for weeks..

I was taking 400mg but I did build up my dosage... my max was 3x 400mg a day everyday for 8months..
I wanna give it another this method another shot as I did saw result but I don't wanna be missing my period

Hi Yhuna,

I'm glad you're giving NBE another shot, and I wish you much luck on your new journey! 

The reason your period didn't come on the 6th month could be for many different reasons. Were you cycling PM and taking it only during your follicular phase or were you taking it every day of the month? If you weren't cycling, this could most likely be the reason. 

Another thing I notice is, wow you were taking quite a lot of PM (1200mg is way too much). What I have noticed though is that certain brands of PM suggest taking more of it and some people only notice growth when taking such high dosages (perhaps due to a difference of the efficacy of their PM?? Not sure.) Either way though, I wouldn't be comfortable with taking that much PM, and I would definitely advise against doing so. What brand of PM were you taking back then? Maybe you should try a different brand this go around. 

One last thing, I can think of is that it could have been that perhaps it was simply time for your body to get a break from the herbs. Detoxing seems to be very beneficial in these cases to prevent stalling and to reset and restart, but they are also very good for your body in general. I would suggest doing mini detoxes each month, or you could alsoe take a complete break every few months to detox. 

Hope these tips help!! 


Good luck!! <3

That's quite common here throughout the PM threads. 
I have x4 sources of PM. One states 50-150mg, another 250mg and another 400mg So def you were overdoing it. 
We won't actually absorb most if what we put in our mouths. It will get broken down however based on what we studied on here yes hands down I'd never be going over 500mg . On my bodweight the dosing guidelines that would qualify me to take around 120mg.
I chose this one due to them providing certification etc and you must be so careful of the source and where it's grown. THey should give you that information should you request it.

I also often refer here for information on herbs I take.

I'd planned to start taking some but by way of tea this month but then my cycle turned up early again day 22 . So many there goes that idea. My guess estrogen. My luteal phase was short again. Need to get to the bottom of that. 

How much growth did you you achieve first time around? From PM?

How much xenoestrogens are you exposed to? Non organic fruit/veg. Plastic wrapping in your food/drink bottles/till receipts from shops? Maybe look into strategies to metabolise your estrogens in the right direction esp if they are in excess and you plan to persue PM. Cover all your bases. 

First port of call is getting your estrogen and Progesterone checked. Bloods are cheap and would highlight any major problem but more comprehensive ones are more desireable just out of the price range for most which is a crime in itself.

Oh yeh I forgot to mention it's been said certain suppliers of PM add estrogen to their product to yield more results (that would be pretty obvious though.. the ones that claim PM is going to give you multiple cup sizes and those that emphasise breasts over anti aging and health properties) . Hence the importance of seeking those certificates of authenticity. 
Best of luck whatever you decide Smile

Hi yhuna. That's quite a bit of PM, if it's good quality PM. The stuff is highly estrogenic. I get mine from ainterolherbs.com and have been very pleased with both the product and the company.

Two things you might look into trying:

1. Progesterone keeps estrogens in check and will help prevent estrogren dominance, which causes many problems, such as migraines and period problems. I use a bio-identical progesterone cream - Pro-Gest by Emerita. Note however that using progesterone reduces the effect of the PM, but not completely, just enough to keep estrogens at a reasonable level.

2. It may help if you match your PM intake to follow your natural estrogen cycle - reducing the PM, or breaking from it for a few days, when your estrogen levels normally drop.

Because for full-time breast feeding, normally period don't come for even a year. That is why it is also considered as natural contraceptive.

Sometimes that happens...........you might want to reduce the capsules and go to a topical
