How To Deal With Period Pains?

Do your have particularly painful period pains? Are you fed up with having to live well only 3 weeks of your months? If so, the below tips and suggestions on how to deal with it is exclusively for you…

Visit a doctor to make sure this is normal pain

Though it is indeed a normal occurrence for the female human body, period pain can sometimes catch you by surprise. If you are among the (very) lucky few, you will be experiencing no pain, or at the very least, only mild discomfort. However, the norm is to feel some pain, at least in the first two days. More often than not, this pain is normal and is bearable. However, if you feel said pain is unbearable, or if you feel it is unnatural, then it’s best to consult a gynecologist in this regard, as sometimes, it is the signs of womb related complications. 

Get painkillers prescribed

As we’ve mentioned above, this particular pain and discomfort is pretty normal. Your elders might describe home remedies, and more often that not, these home remedies might even work to reduce the pain; even if it’s temporary. One such temporary home remedy is the hot towel over your stomach. However, there are instances when the pain can be prolonged and it may even interfere with your daily routine. In this case too, we suggest visiting the Sydney gynecology department of your local hospital and getting prescribed painkillers for this. Please refrain from using over the counter pain medicines, or having it without consulting a doctor, as this may result in complications later on in life.

Keep your blood pumping the rest of the month

If you have been dealing with painful periods for a while now, and are fed up of having to rely on painkillers to keep yourself functional during these few days, then it might be high time for you to look seriously into your lifestyle the rest of the month. Research shows that when one is generally active during the rest of the month, the period pain your experience is considerably less than those who live a less active lifestyle. So exercise regularly and get your blood pumping. Do something everyday; even if it’s a mild exercise. If you don’t have time for exercising, at the very least, try to practice a healthier way of living by making small changes like taking the stairs or walking to school.

Eat, drink and sleep well
