During certain days of the month women have their period and it is inevitable; What we can avoid are some habits that we have adopted over the years and that do not help our health or our pain.
Every day we learn new things about our body, so these are just some of the tips that we recommend you follow. Each person is different, so we hope that they will also help you to spend those days calmly.
Tips to follow during the period:
1- Lie down for a long time
When we feel bad we usually go to bed to lie down but the truth is that during the menstrual cycle we should only lie down in bed to sleep. Staying active helps reduce pain and improve your mood.
2- Assume that calories do not count
No matter what day of the month it is, calories count equally. Sometimes we get carried away during menstruation because it usually comforts us. A bit of chocolate is good, but be careful not to eat the entire bar.
3- Watch sad movies
Our emotions are on the surface during the period, which is why mood swings sometimes occur and go from happiness to sadness and anger in a second. Avoid sad movies these days as it only makes you feel worse, try to choose a comedy better.
4- Do things that cause pain
Many studies have shown that women experience more pain while on their periods because the estrogen levels are lower. So if you have to go to the dentist, get waxed or do something that causes pain, it is better to do it before or after the cycle.
5- Using it as an excuse to be rude
It is true that our mood is affected during these days, but should not be an excuse to treat others badly or be rude. If you need space you can tell your family and friends until your mood improves a bit and think about what you can do to change.
6- Do not forget to change often
A common mistake for all women is to listen to advertisements for menstruation products that say they are capable of hold up to 8 hours. Forget it, it is much healthier and safer to change more often. Also, don’t forget to put on protection at night while you sleep.
Calcium helps with menstruation but dairy products do the opposite. Milk, cheese and yogurt they contain acids that cause more cramps and ovarian pain.
8- Take aspirin
aspirin are pills anticoagulants so the bleeding may even increase if you take them. There are other types of pills that work better with menstruation. If you have any doubts, ask your doctor which ones are best for you.
9- White or very close clothes
Choose your clothes well during these days, since tight clothes can bother you more than normal. Nor does it help to go dressed in white as an unexpected accident can happen. Wear comfortable and loose clothing.
10- Skip the gym
We know that these days you don’t feel like moving or exercising, but it helps as it reduces pain, keeps you distracted and helps burn the calories we ingest too much.
