I am a 26 year old woman who is having troubles with maintaining my period. About 2 years ago I started an active life style which included exercising 3 to 5 times a week and a change in my eating habits. I was about 130 pounds when I began. I lost some weight but, in this process my cycle and hormones have been thrown off. I noticed that I have had mood swings and slight depression. I believe the cause of this may be due to a hormone imbalance. I was doing a little research and found out about Dong Quai, I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this product? If so, is it effective? When I did have my periods I did experience severe cramping, does this product cause bad cramps or help relieve them?View Thread
