Not for IUD bleeding...
Posted by Reviewer2418065 on Dec 01, 2011
I bought the Shepherd's Purse tincture to stop the uncontrollable bleeding my copper IUD was causing. I have been bleeding uncontrollably for 4 months straight but I did not want to have the IUD removed because it is one of the very few non-hormonal birthcontrol methods that has such a high rate of success. So I bought the Shepherd's Purse in hopes that it would at lease slow down my bleeding...Unfortunately, it did not. I used it as directed until the bottle was gone and I never saw any improvement. I would even use more than directed since my bleeding was so heavy, but it didn't work. I also tried combining the tincture with Shepherd's Purse tea bags I had purchased from another company hoping the natural astringent characteristics would eventually take over. But it didn't work for me. I do not doubt the Purse's effectiveness or abilities, I just would not suggest this as a remedy for those suffering from bleeding as a result of an IUD. I will be having mine removed next week.

This product did absolutely nothing for me. All the reviews were so positive and this is a good brand, so not sure what the problem was. I only tried it once and have plenty left, so maybe will give it another shot and update the review if I get a better result.
