I haven't had my 1st period yet, will drinking green tea, and whole milk, and eating fatty meats, and eating a lot of whole yogurt make me start faster?

I haven't had my 1st period yet, will drinking green tea, and whole milk, and eating fatty meats, and eating a lot of whole yogurt make me start faster?

Please see a doctor!: 90% of girls in the us start menstruating by the time they turn 14. If you are 18 and have not yet started having periods this is a sign of primary amennorhea. There are many possible causes such as hypothyroidism, pituitary problems, genetics & nutrient deficiencies, but eating the foods you mention are unlikely to make a difference.
I advise seeing a gynecologist or endocrinolgist for evaluation. ...Read more

Does drinking 3 cups of green tea daily for a prolonged period decrease the effectiveness of the birth control pills? I take Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 2 years.

Does drinking 3 cups of green tea daily for a prolonged period decrease the effectiveness of the birth control pills? I take Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) for 2 years.

No: Drinking green tea 3 times a day does not change the effectiveness of birth control pills. Of course, no pills are 100% effective, so there is always a very small chance a woman could become pregnant while using birth control pills, regardless of whether she drinks tea or not. The healthier way to drink tea is without sugar or sweeteners. ...Read more

Can ginger tea induce periods if so how soon?

Can ginger tea induce periods if so how soon?

No, but: Ginger tea is fine to drink, if one enjoys the ginger flavor. Avoid using too much sugar, or too much of other sweeteners. It won't change one's menstrual periods, which means that any change in one's menstrual periods after drinking ginger tea is actually a coincidence and not caused by ginger tea. If periods are truly altered by the tea, there's more than just ginger in there (scary thought!). ...Read more
