Menstrual Cycle Care Package

Here are a few things to help you feel more comfort throughout your period/ premenstrual symptoms (PMS). Most of the time when it’s that time of the month it can get painful and we feel uneasy, I’m going to be sharing with you a few tips and suggestions to help ease your discomfort.


Ginger Tea

Ginger tea is a must when it comes to premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or symptoms you feel whilst on your period. It mainly helps with nausea and it’s also a great pain relief.

Cloves

Herbs might be an old-fashioned way to relieve pain, but it is healthy and they can be very helpful, especially when you run out of medications and need to soothe pain. Cloves help with relieving abdominal pain.

They may be bitter but just chew down on 2 cloves. Wash it down with water; and you will feel relief in a few minutes.


Hot Water Bottle

If you have unbearable cramps, putting a hot water bottle against your lower abdomen, helps to bring it comfort.

However be careful with a hot water bottle, make sure the cap is always tightly on.

Tender Breasts

If tender breasts are one of your symptoms when it comes to your menstrual cycle, there is a way to ease the tenderness.

It’s called Hydrotherapy, in this case take a contrast shower when taking a shower, alternate from a hot shower then to cold. It helps stimulate blood flow and tones and tightens skin.The water should flow from top to bottom, and don’t direct strong currents towards your nipples. (Take contrast showers 3-4 times a week) – Carlie K. Thompson, MD. Breast Surgical Oncologist


Fetal Sleeping Position

Many people don’t know this but sleeping position throughout having your period is important. If the fetal sleeping position isn’t your normal sleeping position you should try practising it during your period.

The fetal position helps relax abdominal muscles as it takes off pressure, which helps with relieving cramps.


No Sugary Foods

Sugary foods can contribute to your abdominal pain during your period.

Although it can be hard especially if you get cravings throughout your menstrual cycle and tend to go for sugary foods, it’s important to try your best to avoid as much sugary foods as possible.


Water

Drink lots water over a caffeine, fizzy drinks and sugary drinks.

Water is an essential during your period, because you’re losing blood and need to stay hydrated . You retain more water during your period so therefore you may feel bloated, water helps ease that bloatedness.

When you drink a lot of water during your period, it decreases your cramps and back aches. It also prevents thickened blood and decreases period length.


Avoid Caffeine

If you want to get rid of cramps during your period, I advise you to not drink caffeine.

Caffeine makes the blood vessels in your body constrict, which contributes to the tightening of the uterus, increasing your painful cramps.


Hot Baths

Hot baths help calm your cramps and ease muscle tension.

If you worry about bleeding whilst taking a bath, the water helps to temporarily stop blood from flowing or you can also wear a tampon. Hot baths also help improve your mood especially if that’s one of your symptoms during your menstrual cycle.


Scented Pads

Scented pads is not an essential during your period, however it doesn’t hurt to smell good throughout your period.

They don’t irritate, itch, or cause allergic reactions, and they also smell amazing. It’s also a good feeling knowing you smell good down there.
