During periods, a smidgeon of pain and cramping is unavoidable. In any case, you can prevent it from becoming severe pain by avoiding the eight specific things I've listed below.
Caffeine is number one.
Drinking a lot of coffee won't assist you if you're on your period. To be honest, it'll make things worse. Coffee, like other caffeinated beverages, increases your chances of suffering period pain that is worse than usual. Caffeine deficiency, as well as vasoconstriction in the uterus, all contribute to pain.
2. Tobacco use
When compared to non-smokers, women who smoke on a regular basis are more likely to experience menstruation pain, according to an Australian study. The link between smoking and higher menstruation discomfort isn't apparent, according to the review, but analysts believe it could be due to nicotine-induced vasoconstriction of the uterine veins.
3. alcoholic beverages
Drinking too much alcohol, especially in excess, might dehydrate you. Dehydration, as previously mentioned, can exacerbate the severity of your menstrual pain. Not only that, but alcohol can lower magnesium levels, which can exacerbate the problem because magnesium aids in the control of PMS symptoms.
Stress can aggravate almost any aspect of one's health, including menstrual problems. When you're scared, your pain threshold decreases dramatically. As a result, you experience excruciating discomfort during your periods. Your menstruation cycle may be disrupted if you are under a lot of stress.
Period cramps can develop if you don't receive the requisite extended stretches of rest. The act of sleeping aids the creation of a neurotransmitter called serotonin. This molecule aids in the regulation of a number of bodily functions, including pain sensitivity. When you're agitated, your body creates less of this molecule, which makes you more sensitive to pain.
6. Unhealthy foods
All junk food and processed food varieties, particularly those manufactured with refined flour, contribute to the worsening of period discomfort. Such foods raise your salt levels, which irritates your skin, turning your regular period pain into a terrifying nightmare.
