How To Stop Menstrual Cramps Taking Over Your Life
Women definitely seem to get the rough end of the deal in many areas in life, and menstrual cycles are one of those areas for sure. It’s not just the inconvenience of bleeding and all that comes with that lovely event, but for some women, the onset of their monthly period can be a horrific time during which they’re almost unable to function due to the pain of the cramps as well as other symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, sweating, and nausea – a charming time indeed.
However, if you’re one of the unlucky ones who dreads your period every month because of the things it causes and it’s interfering in your life, then the good news is that you don’t have to suffer as much you think you do.
In fact there are now various things you can try that will, not only ease the horrid symptoms when they do make an appearance, but there are also things that can be done to completely remove them. Of course you’re never going to be able to make your period go away, and after all, it does serve a purpose, so you don’t really want it to, as annoying as it is sometimes.
Though, we should mention that this post is not intended as medical advice and shouldn’t be taken as such. If you’re experiencing severe pain and bleeding even when you’re not on your period or symptoms that you just don’t feel comfortable with, then it’s always important to seek medical advice for your doctor or even visit the ER if these symptoms come on outside of your doctors hours because these could be anything from cysts that are generally harmless, but may need to be removed, or a range of other conditions that need attention.
Prepare for them:
Before you roll your eyes too much at this one, we realize how it sounds, and we’re not meaning that you have to be sitting and waiting for your period, since even those that have been regular your whole life will still just show up sometimes whenever they feel like it. What we mean is, if you know your period causes you problems, then make sure you’re ready to work your life around it for those days. Have your relaxing bath salts ready, have plenty of pain relief – whether it’s medication or hot water bottles, and also ensure you’re not running low on your sanitary products.
Speak to your doctor:
If your periods are really starting to interfere with your life, then the best thing you can do is speak to your doctor about the options available. They will likely want to rule out anything underlying, but if it’s simply a case of you having a cycle that is worse than you’d like, then they can recommend treatment options for you.
