We all have to go through that dreaded time of the month but it doesn’t have to be as painful as it is! Here are some remedies for cramps which should help them be more bearable.
Painkillers: Painkillers are an obvious choice but you can get ones especially for period cramps to tackle your pains directly. You can find pink panadols in most pharmacies and convenience shops.
Hot water bottle: A hot water bottle will warm and therefore relax your abdomen muscles lessening any cramping you may be experiencing.
Avoiding caffeine: If you can help it, try not to consume caffeine while you are on your period. Caffeine raises tension in your blood levels so when you’re suffering from cramps you actually want to do the opposite.
Potassium-rich foods: Eating foods rich in potassium will lessen the blow of your pains, some examples are bananas, avocado and melon.
Cranberry juice: Cranberry juice possesses important anti oxidants which will make sure you do not get any urinary tract infections which are more common during menstruation to save you from any unnecessary discomfort.
