Period pains

You may not feel so good when you get your period, or right before your period. If this is not you, count yourself lucky!

Stomach aches and a bad mood

Sometimes you may feel tired, grumpy, or sad right before your period. This is pretty common.  Most of it's related to the changes in your hormones levels.

What can you do when you’ve got period pains?

The best thing to do is look after yourself.

Here are some suggestions:

For stomach aches
Use a hot water bottle/bag on your stomach to ease the cramps
Take a paracetamol or aspirin

For a headache
Take a paracetamol or aspirin

For bloating or swelling
Cut down the amount of salt you eat for a few days before your period.

For tiredness
Take vitamin supplements that include Calcium (drink milk)
Have plenty of rest and try to get eight hours of sleep

For moodiness
Exercising regularly for up to 30 minutes a day helps maintain a happy outlook on life

For food cravings like chocolate
Eat dark chocolate, yoghurt, or drink milk

If you've got extreme pain, and these suggestions don't help or you have problems like irregular cycles or excessive blood flow, contact your nearest health care provider for more guidance.
