How To Get Rid Of Menstrual Cramps
Today I want to talk about a problem most women encounter during their periods.
Period cramps can be very nasty. It makes it very difficult to get up in the mornings, to move, to eat, and to function at all. Women don't feel like themselves when they are in pain. Really, It can be ugly. Well, you don’t have to live like that much longer! I’m going to talk about why it happens to some women and 7 Things You Can Do To Help Fight Your Period Cramps And Win.
What happens when you get menstrual cramps? Your uterus, which is a muscle, contracts during your period. Sometimes when the uterus contracts, it can accidentally press against other blood vessels, momentarily cutting off their supply of oxygen.
If you want simple and effective treatments for menstrual cramps, keep reeding..
1. Take pain relievers
For women who have PMS-related pain such as cramping, breast tenderness, backaches, or headaches, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain relievers can provide some relief.
2. Take vitamins. A couple days before your period is about to begin, make sure you're getting enough vitamins, as well as the right kind of vitamins. These include:
Vitamin E, vitamin B1, vitamin B6, and fish oil supplements.
3. Try to get as much sleep as you think you need so that sleep deprivation doesn’t increase symptoms.
4. Improve your diet. A salt-heavy diet can cause bloating, stay away from coffee. caffeine can aggravate irritability or anxiety, alcohol may worsen depression, and too much sugar can destabilize your blood sugar and mood.
5. Do Some Mild Exercise. Make exercise a regular part of your routine. Studies show that women who perform regular exercise have less menstrual pain. At least, 30 minutes of walking five times a week, will help. Moderate exercise is better than no exercise at all.
6. Consider herbal remedies. There are some herbal remedies that may be effective in relieving cramping and mood swings.
You might consider using black cohosh, chaste berry, ginger, raspberry leaf, or dandelion.
7. Use heat treatment. Using heat is a way to relieve pain associated with menstrual cramping, as well as helping the cramps subside themselves.
Get a hot water bottle and apply it to the stomach or lower abdomen. Wait for 15 to 20 minutes. it will surely get better.
If everything fails, visit a doctor. If you are not so sure of why your period hurts so much, and can't seem to find an answer to persistent pain, you definitely need to see a doctor.
