What is an Emmenagogue?

Strictly speaking these are remedies that stimulate and regulate menstrual flow and function. In most herbal texts the term is used in the wide sense of a remedy that normalizes and tones the female reproductive system. With herbal remedies there is a whole range of distinct treatments that can be used for the reproductive system either directly or indirectly. Uterine tonics and hormonal normalizers can often be included in this group.
