I have been taking the bitter melon extracts for about 2 weeks. last night i had cramps. i felt as if i was on my period. I found blood and have been bleeding for 1 day, Not heavy bleeding (pinkred) I went on line and read that this fruit can start your menustration. Why am i bleeding and can i start a period after menopausing for 3 years?
