Perhaps popping a pill to relieve your period pain is still not an option for you. In this final chapter of the ‘Natural Remedies’ series, we take a look at a few final measures to help you feel better, naturally. Be sure to flip through the dietary, fitness & herbal measures discussed earlier.
Sleep keeps painful menstruation symptoms at bay. Create and stick to a nighttime routine to convey to your body that it's time to sleep. Listening to relaxing music, drinking a cup of tea, or having a warm bath could all be part of the regimen. This also involves going to bed at a consistent hour each night.
In the days leading up to your period, pay special attention to sleep hygiene. Getting enough sleep will help you manage monthly symptoms linked with your menstrual cycle while also improving your overall health. To help relax before bedtime, avoid watching TV, using your smartphone, using your computer, or any other screens. During your period, you may find that sleeping in different positions is more pleasant.
Orgasms involve your entire body, including your spinal cord, which triggers neurotransmitter release. An orgasm can cause the release of neurotransmitters like endorphins and oxytocin in your brain. Endorphins have the ability to reduce pain perception. Vaginal self-stimulation has also been proven to double women's pain tolerance in studies.
Fancy A Walk Or A Run Or A Swim?
Get off the couch and go for a stroll - or engage in some other form of physical activity. A brisk walk usually works wonders. Walking in itself is beneficial to one's general health & well-being. It improves circulation and relieves pain over time.
Swimming has been shown to help alleviate menstrual cramps in many people. If you enjoy walking, biking, or swimming, you can do so safely during your menstrual cycle. When inserted correctly you shouldn't feel the Femino Cup. Go swim and forget all about your period.
“Run in pain? Are you serious!?”. Well not exactly. In the later days of your periods or when you have mild symptoms, going for a run will do you some real good. If you're feeling uneasy, start out slow with occasional stops in between. Running can significantly relieve pain and irritability. Keep yourself hydrated at all times.
Dance & Stretch
Dancing is an enjoyable activity that may improve your mood while also burning the extra calories. Signing up for that Zumba class you’ve always wanted to go to does not seem like a bad idea.
Simple stretches performed at home can be more effective than simply rolling around in bed. If other workouts are causing you discomfort, try stretching and taking deep breaths to relax your muscles.
When you need some natural PMS relief, don't be hesitant to try several — or all — of the suggestions discussed in this series. Just remember to keep your options open and allow them adequate time to work. If you're unsure about how much period pain is typical, don't hesitate to speak with your doctor.
