How do I use for best results?
Starting the week before your period, take 1 tsp (6 dropperfuls) 2x/day until the bottle is finished. For irregular cycles, take ½ tsp (3 dropperfuls) every day of the month until the bottle is finished. For severe symptoms, double the dose that applies to you. Read our blog post, Feel The Heal Over Time to learn more.
Can I take too much of the herbs?
While the herbs are safe in the prescribed dose, there is always a point of diminishing return with supplements, known as the Tolerable Upper Intake Level. Please do not exceed 40 mL/day (2/3rds of the bottle).
What if my periods are irregular?
If Your Cycle is Irregular (aka you can't predict your next period), take ½ tsp (3 dropperfuls) every day of the month until the bottle is finished. Note that many of our community members choose to use this dosage even if they have regular cycles because it's easier to build into their daily habits. TCM is all about tuning in to yourself - if this dose feels right for you, give it a try! If you experience multiple periods a month or less than one period a month, learn how to adjust your shipments to match your cycle here.
What if my period comes late?
If you’ve finished your herbs and your period hasn’t come, the herbs will still have prepared your body for the coming menstruation. Hang tight! If your period is more than 1-1.5 weeks delayed, you may need to order more Cycle Balance for maximum effectiveness. Read our blog post, Feel The Heal Over Time to learn more.
What if my period comes early?
If your period comes early, please continue to take your Cycle Balance formula until you have used the entire bottle (and especially while you are still experiencing any cycle-related symptoms). The herbs have been shown to help to relieve your symptoms in the current cycle and also to balance your hormones in preparation for the month to come. We developed the formula strength to be used in its entirety with each cycle, so it is important to use the whole bottle for maximum efficacy and satisfaction.

What if I forget to take a dose or forget to start the herbs one week before my period comes?
That’s ok! We have you take the herbs ahead of menstruation because some of the herbs take time to build up in your body for maximum effectiveness. However, some of the herbs are designed to be effective the moment you start taking them so you will see benefits no matter when you start taking them!

What if my symptoms are more sporadic and don’t come every month?
The herbs are very safe and can act preventively. Many also find that taking Cycle Balance allows them to have an easier cycle in general, suffering less from other symptoms such as mood swings and fatigue. If you choose, Cycle Balance can be taken only when symptoms occur—however, it is more effective to get ahead of them by taking the Cycle Balancer before symptoms begin every month.
