Only we know what true pain feels like! We deal with so much yet still manage to keep a smile on our face. Every month without fail we have the painters visiting, yes I'm talking about menstural cycle, periods! Obviously if you're on some form of contraception, unbalanced diet etc they will stop.
Periods are a pain and so you need to know ways that can help you ease the cramping pains.
As you know every individual will experience things in life different from others. And period pain varies from mild to significantly painful. One of the best ways to ease the cramping is by staying active. If you're not feeling for an adventurous walk, you might just want to walk to the shops for sweets.
It might not seem appropriate but dress up and put a bit of makeup on. Look good feel great! Plus I also read somewhere that women dress better when they're on their periods. If you're lucky you might get a few compliments which will boost up you confidence levels.
People say eat healthy and so you should but when you're on your periods you tend to crave sweet things more than usual. Have a few extra bites of everything.. After all you're bloody hungry. <crude joke alert.
Anything hot.. hot drink, warm bath, hot water bottle you need it.
A back massage from who ever.. just let them get on with it.
Medication might be a must, I try to stay away from them but when it's unbareable take a pain killer. Plus hormones are all over the place, so you might want to take a calms if you can't tolerate anyone around you either lool.
If pains are extremely unbareable consider going to your GP. You don't want periods to interfere with your daily life. Periods shouldn't stop you from going for a meal with friends. However, stay away from wearing white.
