Good day,
Please i would love to know your thoughts on using Kacip Fatimah instead of Manajakani for post partum issues such as vaginal tightening, abdominal muscle firming and breast firming.
Thank you.

Hi, Both these herbs are equally important when it come to tighten the muscles of Vagina. Along with it, they show many other health benefits, especially to female reproductive organs.

21 Oct 2016
We really apologize for the miss print. The dose is 500 mg/day. Thank you so much for helping us correct a mistake. It has been amended. Stay healthy..

Coffee tends to increase the blood pressure, so if you are a patient of High Blood Pressure, it is safe not to use any sort of Coffee at all.

Hi there,

I just purchased 325 mg Kacip Fatimah capsules, but the directions say to take a pill two or three times daily. Wouldn't that be too much since you only suggest 500 mg daily? Also, do I need to take kacip daily for a certain amount of time and then stop for a period like you suggest with Manjakani? Thanks so much for your suggestions!

17 Feb 2017
Chanelle Yes, the total quantity should not exceed 500 mg. If you already are taking 325 mg, then it is suggested that you take only one capsule daily.
The duration depends on the condition to be cured.
So you will have to specify the disease you wish to use it for.

I'm 50 going through menopause. Experiencing extreme vaginal looseness and dryness

I've read that kacip Fatimah works well for this. I also heard about Manjakani

Do you think either of these are good for my issue? Can they be taken together?

What form should I use? Pills, tea? What form and dosage?

will manjakani damage my vaginal lining
04 Apr 2017
No. Megan Manjakani will not damage your vaginal lining.
You can take the herbs together for a month.
Take the capsules, one daily for a month. If you are planning to take the tea, drink a cup of each, daily for a month

Please I am in desperate need of Help. My life is falling apart. I am a 35 year old mother of 5, (6 deliveries). I have been having reccurance of BV and yeast infection for the past 2-3 years. I'm so tired of taking antibiotics and antifungal medications. For it to keep coming back. I've been with my husband for 11 years. This was not happening for 8 years of our relationship. Also, since the birth of my 2 year old, I have been experiencing vaginal flatulence when having sex from behind. I cry all the time. Doctors say I'm healthy and hormones are normal. Please help. Also, I don't feel my husband like I used too when I was 25-30, when having sex.
I feel less than a woman everyday. I feel like I'm the only women going through this? Please, any advice is greatly appreciated.
Should I take kacip fatmah or manjakani or both? Where do you recommend I buy them from? How do I use it? I saw in another response you said one month. Then I can never use again?
Thank you so much for taking the time to listen and care.

The cure for you is one dose of PulsaTilla 1m.

Buy it from a herbal store.If you do not get it in your region, then order it online. Look for Kacip Fatimah tea on the internet. I am sure you will find the vendors who sell Kacip Fatimah. You are not able to conceive right ?

I discovered the best kacip fatimah, its in liquid form by Nutri herbs i ordered it from amazon its from spain and arrived from UK good quality I prefer liquid form in any supplement because u can dose it less if u want it has a dropper and I believe liquid form is not so harsh on your liver, I noticed i get great energy from it and helps vaginal dryness and skin and hair and wrinkle improvement

Another excellent product for the same problems very similar to Kacip is called Pueraria mirifica its sold on internet for breast enlargement it is full of Phytoestrogen Solgars sells it very reasonably priced PM PHYTOGEN it will cure a lot of your menopausal problems I tend to think it is slightly more feminizing than Kacip helps with Libido like crazy helps improve memory,skin and hair but will boost up breasts and butt for sure.

Does Kacip Fatimah jelp shrink uterine fibroids. I read it increases phytoestrogens. Since I believe my problem may be too much estrogen and inflammation and stress...I wondered if ADDING phyto ESTROGEN would make it grow more. It is at 12 centimeters now. Also..I take Synthroid daily for hashimotos from hypothyroidism. When having a panic attack, I take Lorezapam ( generic for Adivan). Do you reccomend Kapic Fatimah for me? Thank you for your help!

What should I use to tighten my vagina wall
07 Aug 2019
You can try Manjakani. It is a very effective herb for female reproductive organs. You can take it as 1 tablet every day. or
Make a decoction of Manjakani herb and have 1 cup every day. or
Take Manjakani, crush and boil it in water. When the color changes, leave it to cool. Use the cold water to wash the vagina. Do any of the regimens for 15 days. Write back to us after that.

I read the whole article which says Facip Fatima can help ease delivery of baby and yet I still read on the ame article which says lactating and pregnant women should avoid the use of Facip Fatima. Pls can u explain much better because it's somehow confusing.
If it can be used for vaginal tightening, do u think it would really work for age delivery? If yes pls at what weeks into pregnancy can one start taking it.

How to use kacip fatimoh for conception
18 Feb 2020
Hey Sahadat Its use is recommended in few cultures for conception while it is known to delay conception in others. So its use can be tricky. I suggest you take Striped Cucumber ( Shivlingi ) and Drypetes Roxburghii ( Putrajivak ) for conception. Take seed powder of the herbs. Take 1 teaspoon daily for 1 month. This is very effective and will help you. God bless you.

I started taking kacip fatimah tea and when I take I feel a severe hunger. Can I know why??
06 Jul 2020
Well, Kacip Fatimah is known to prolong satiety and regulate appetite. Are you trying to lose weight? Is your weight inappropriate as per the BMI index? One rule to reduce is to measure inches rather than kilos/ounces. It means you should see changes in your body shape and not only weight measurement. Maybe you are trying hard to reduce and skipping the needed meals which are making you eat unusually. Keep eating balanced and check Over weight page in this website for ways to reduce and how to use them.
