Menstrual cycle you can take some otc water bills. But I know to many people that have taken them regularly and have ended up with kidney problems.

Water pills are diuretics (meaning they induce water reduction by urination) and have always been dangerous: how they work differs for each person, people tend to overuse them (because they're probably trying to lose weight quickly), and water/electrolyte balance is critical to health. Now there's some evidence they're linked to kidney cancer. They are UNSAFE.
