Came across this site regarding red clover. If you look in the use of manganese to become pregnant you may be glad you did.

I started taking Red Clover 4 days ago. Primarily to quit smiking but also to cleanse. Maybe it's in my mind but I think its working. I am down to 5 cigarettes a day (used to be 20) I have an ultimate quit date which is 3 days away. I noticed that I am not irritable and am not craving a smoke (smoker for 27 years). I feel good and the best of all is that my skin looks terrific. I also noticed that I have no desire to drink alcohol. Have no taste for it at all. I have had at least 2 glasses of wine every day for as long as I can remember. Have'nt had a drink in 4 days and REALLY do not have the taste or desire for one. Is it working?? guess so.

I have been on estrogen for 25 years because I had a full hysterectomy. I'd like to
know if it's possible to take red clover instead. I also use progesterone cream
which has really helped with depression. Can I still make tea using red clover if
I take .625 estrogen everyday? I want to cut down on estrogen replacement.
Thanks,

I have been taking red clover for about 6 months. I am pre-menopausal and was experiencing extreme hot flashes and insomnia. I do not have any hot flashes anymore - occasional insomnia for maybe an hour or two every month or so. I am very please with the results. I would recommend.

Try Omega-3 for the insomnia. It's great for healing the brain, among other things

I suffer really bad menopausal symptoms of night sweats and hot flushes.  Doctor prescribed Citalopram (anti depressant) but I am loathe to take any medication which has such a lot of side effects.  Has anyone else tried this?  Considering taking Red Clover instead.

Ive been using red clover for about a month since i started getting menopausal symptoms. I take half a teaspoon 3 times daily and ive found it to be a great help at balancing my hormones, hot flashes, anxiety, mood swings, heart palpatations have basically all gone.

For alleviating menopausal hot flashes, I can recommend taking a one time daily food suppliment containing 250mg Red Clover concentrate with an effective Isoflavone value of 50mg. Within three days of taking Red Clover concentrate capsules, the possitive effects were noticable, and in two to three weeks, the hot flashes gradually subsided to completely vanish.

I hope not to scare you but night sweats and pain can be cancer indicators. Perhaps see a doctor?

I read info about Red Clover not being good for women with breast cancer. My grandmother and I had breast cancer. Red clover got rid of it.

It was recommended that I use Red Clover when I had a stubborn boil. Within a couple of days, the boil had completely disappeared and have not had any reoccurance. I researched on line that it could calm my bronchial cough and to loosen phlegm, so I continued using the red clover and my my cough went from severe to a minimal cough. Used it for years, then just stopped taking it. I entered my pre menopausal state and begin taking red clover again, within hours of taking it, my hot flashes completely went away. I have not expereienced any ill affects from red clover at all. I feel more energentic, more alert, and definitely more healthy! Would recommend this miracle herb to anyone!!

Just wanted to let people know that my medical doctor reccomended Red Clover to me.  He isn't a great believer in herbal medicines as a whole but said this is one he has seen medical testing and evidence for and knows it can really help to lessen or prevent hot flashes.  I have been only somewhat dedicated in taking it and am sure it has helped to ease the hot flashes a lot.  I will try and be more dilligent about taking the suggested dosage now I can see all the other potential benefits of taking it!

Red clover tea, which I wild harvest and mix with mint, has definitely helped reduce my hot flashes. I also like the slightly sweet taste and drink a lot of it, which helps me to stay hydrated.

This is little off topic but i have to say it. This rating thing is just funny. All herbs deserve 10/10, they are all unique.

On topic; ill share this herb with my female friends, they were having problems.

I had total hysterectomy two months ago. I suffer a lot from headaches. I took estrofem for hormone replacement but worsened my headaches. I have just started taking red clover drops, recommended dose of 10 drops three times daily. I would like to know if the red clover will help alleviate my headaches or are there any recommended herbal remedies for menopausal headaches?
Thank you

You can use dong quai tincture, one to two tsp for your headache.

feistyone 's avatar  feistyone 14/09/2012 16:01

yes Ashley it is safe and recommended by many herbalist to take both red clover and raspberry leaf when trying to get pregnant...they both are amazing for the female body and reproductive system...I drink a tea 3 times a day made from both, along with taking red clover capsules :) also its good to take a vitamin B complex when trying to get pregnant :)

Distraught with these flushes and sweats so bought promensil today and took my first one. No side effects so far. It contains red clover, so watch this space.
If I get some decent sleep I will definitely feel better in myself.
The erratic sleeping pattern has me exhausted.

I have POTS, that comes with flashes, I am also 510 YO. Not sure what exactly causes flashes, but probably POTS, since menopausal flashes somewhat feel different. Anyhow, I alternate red clover and stinging nettle teas. Flashes reduced 80-90%.

Ann Onymous 's avatar  Ann Onymous 18/11/2011 17:54

No. It's clover, not pot. There's no THC in red clover.
