hi can anyone help me, i started taking dim, this is day2, and i found i have started bleeding, and passing a lot of clots, this has never happened, and i am scared that i may have upset my body. Is this normal, will it pass? Can anyone let me know if this has happened to them. i am taking 100mg, 2 capsuals a day.


i have never bleed like this and its not normal for me, I do suffer from fibriods, hence why i took dim, but i never had overbleeding where i was soakied in blood.



any info will be of great help.

DIM can have estrogenic effects and in theory exacerbate uterine fibroids.  While it's unsure whether or not it's caused by DIM or maybe it's just your fibroid I'd consider a trip to the UC or ER.

I had premenstural migraines, insomnia and weight gain.  I'm 39.  

I have been taking DIM for about two months and before I started taking it, I read that one should also take a liver support supplement to help the process of eliminating the extra estrogen.  I am not a medical professional nor am I a biochemist, so I don't know the specifics of how/why it works.   I have had zero side effects and am taking 200 mg a day as well.  

I hope this helps and good luck!
