Black cohosh: There is not enough scientific data that black cohosh is safe for periods in teenagers. No studies have looked at black cohosh in people under 18. Black cohosh contains a small amount of salicylic acid so it should be avoided in those allergic to aspirin. Also black cohosh should be avoided if there is a history of liver disease, genetic blood clotting disorder, endometriosis or fibroids.
