Decem­ber 03, 2017, 13:25

Many women expe­ri­ence pain these days. The pain is so severe that it pre­vents us from lead­ing a nor­mal life. Painful peri­ods are not only in young girls, some­times it does not go away even after child­birth.

Some even claim that after the birth of a child, men­stru­a­tion became even more painful. There are many rea­sons for this — genet­ics, per­son­al phys­i­o­log­i­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics, restruc­tur­ing of the body due to a change in hor­mon­al lev­els.

It is important to understand about menstruation

Before we talk about ways to get rid of men­stru­al pain, we want to draw your atten­tion to an impor­tant thing.

Men­stru­a­tion is not a small death every month. If it hurts so much that you even climb the wall, if you com­plete­ly fall out of life and ordi­nary painkillers in pills no longer help, this can­not be the norm, even indi­vid­ual, even if you have been like this all your life.

If the gyne­col­o­gist at the appoint­ment dis­miss­es your com­plaints and advis­es anoth­er pill, we advise you to con­tact anoth­er spe­cial­ist! It is impor­tant to under­stand: unbear­able pain (unbear­able exact­ly accord­ing to your per­son­al scale) harms the body much more than any hor­mones or injec­tions. There­fore, it is nec­es­sary to treat such con­di­tions — and it is bet­ter to do this with a qual­i­fied doc­tor.

If your peri­ods do not make you suf­fer as much as men­tioned above — read how you can help your­self!

How to relieve pain during menstruation

If you fol­low some sim­ple rules, the month­ly tor­ture may not dis­ap­pear at all, but it will become quite tol­er­a­ble.

1. Gen­er­al rec­om­men­da­tion — an active lifestyle. Phys­i­cal exer­cise will improve blood cir­cu­la­tion in the body, strength­en the abdom­i­nal mus­cles, and this will make it eas­i­er to endure men­stru­a­tion. It is impor­tant to under­stand: such class­es should be reg­u­lar! And if you sud­den­ly decid­ed from Mon­day to change your whole life and go in for sports, do not start on the days of men­stru­a­tion.

2. Avoid your peri­od cof­fee, choco­late and alco­hol.

3. Drink plen­ty of warm water. This will reduce bloat­ing, as well as relieve spasm and alle­vi­ate your con­di­tion. The excep­tion is girls who, in the first days of men­stru­a­tion, feel nau­sea, which can turn into vom­it­ing — with such symp­toms, drink­ing plen­ty of water, alas, will only wors­en the sit­u­a­tion.

4. If the pain reach­es its max­i­mum, rest as much as pos­si­ble. You can drink hot tea or lie down with a heat­ing pad or a bot­tle of warm (not hot!) water on your stom­ach.

5. If it is very dif­fi­cult for you to endure the pain, buy an anes­thet­ic med­i­cine at the phar­ma­cy and take it in strict accor­dance with the instruc­tions. Injec­tions are already an exces­sive lev­el, if a reg­u­lar anti­spas­mod­ic pill does not solve the prob­lem, it is bet­ter to con­sult a doc­tor.
