    • I hope you were prescribed with other medicines as well. Please consult your doctor with your doubts. Without knowing your full health parameters, it is difficult to guess when it would lead to menstruation.
      Kulathadi kashayam might take around 4 – 6 weeks to show results. Please follow up with your doctor.

    • Hi, it helps to fight infection better for sure. But if the inflammation of uterus is not associated with heavy periods, then this will be useful. If there is heavy periods, this will not be useful.
