Difficult to say: Not knowing the specific name of the herbal product, and not knowing one's gynecologic history makes it difficult to tell exactly what is going on. Best to bring the herbal product into your doctor's office and have him or her research it to see if there is a link to a missed period or discharge. Also, a missed period should always be checked for pregnancy.
