Any delay in menstrual periods not only affects a female physiologically but psychologically as well. But there are certain food items which, taken regularly, help overcome the problem of delayed menstruation. But, in case your problem is chronic, you MUST visit a gynaecologist.
Add half a teaspoon of heeng in each vegetable dish you make. It not only relieves one of flatulence but regulates progesterone, the female hormone.
It can be used either fresh or dried. When fresh boil it in a glass of water for 15-20 minutes, filter and consume. If you have it in dried condition, mix it with a spoon of honey and consume with a glass of warm water.
You can consume a spoon after each meal. Or soak two tablespoons of fennel seeds in a glass of water and keep it overnight, and consume it next day.
Ginger is a well-known for its usefulness to health. You can either have it in tea, or plain ginger water will do.
Boil it for 15-20 minutes in water before consuming it.
Cinnamon contains hydroxychalcone which not only regulates insulin and menstrual hormones. Add a pinch in tea or consume it with a glass of warm water.
Turmeric does a lot of good to the body. It relieves pains, builds immunity and brightens your complexion too. That is other than regularising your hormones and hence the menstrual cycle. Make it a habit to add a spoonful of turmeric to all your food recipes. In addition you can have a spoon full in warm water, with honey; honey to purely offset its unpleasant taste.
Sesame seeds have a warming effect on the body. Eat a spoonful, with or without honey.
Full of antioxidants, carrots are not only good for your skin and eyes but also your hormones. You may either eat them as salad or enjoy a smoothie made of carrot and water.
Papaya works best when eaten unripe. You can either the fruit or the juice, once a day. It works by promoting contractions in the muscle fibers in the uterus.
Consume either as fruit or as juice (juice not more than one glass a day as excessive consumption of this juice can lead to lose motion).
