Need relief from “that time” like NOW? Here are a few tips that just might help.
A Heating Pad
Invest in one of these ladies. They can be found almost anywhere for $20 or under. Heat is great for menstrual pain relief. Warning though, no matter how had it hurts, don’t put a heating pad directly on your skin. It will burn you.
Have a Seat
If you have lower back pain during ladies’ time, you should try staying off of your feet as much as you can. Standing naturally adds pressure to your back. You will definitely notice it more when ladies’ time comes. Sitting or laying down, alone, won’t completely eliminate pain, but will surely alleviate some pressure and minimize it.
Do you feel nauseous around “that time”? It’s a fairly common issue. Brewing some hot, peppermint tea works wonders for nausea.
Getting rid of that awful pain is a great excuse for getting more fruits veggies in your diet. Summer is coming up, after all. Bananas are rich and potassium and have vitamin B6. Both of these are good for menstrual relief. Spinach also has cramp-fighting properties (vitamin E, vitamin B6 and magnesium).
