Dealing with Period Pain

Wednesday, 5 March 2014

It's that time of the month again that all us girlies dread.. No point in getting embarrassed about it, we all get it! As much as I hate to admit it though, I do believe it is healthy to have and gives us that sigh of relief that we are not pregnant (hurrah)! 

I honestly don't think guys give us the credit for the amount of pain that we go through this one week every month. For those girls that don't get the aching cramps, backache, spots, headaches and sickness.. I ENVY YOU. I am one of the unfortunate ones that seem to get all those symptoms in the one whack and during my time of the month I'm left feeling extremely down, hormonal and crave every single take away and chocolate known to man - yep it is that bad. Some of you, and I bet any guys that read this will think I am being over dramatic about this as it is only one week of the month but I feel that it would be good to share some of the things I do at home to relieve the pain and make myself feel better.

For those lucky gals that don't get the pains that bad, I can only describe it as someone shoving there first into your lower stomach, grabbing everything in there, digging their nails into you and twisting at the same time, horrific I know. So let's look at somethings that I feel can help..

1. Feminax Express Tablets
Feminax is an express pain relief  ibuprofen style tablet that treats period pains, cramps, headaches, muscle pains and backache. Initially, I was skeptical about trying these because I thought nothing would be able to relieve me of the pain I was going through BUT I was wrong. These tables work wonders.. I honestly swear by them now. They retail for around £4 and you can find them at your local supermarket or drugstore such as Boots or Superdrug. I really recommend if you get bad period pains then you should give these a try and hopefully they will work as well for you, as they did for me.

2. Painkillers
If you are like me and suffer from  extremely bad headaches during the time the painters are in, then there is nothing like good old painkillers to relieve a headache. Any kind will do whether its Tesco's own or Nurofen, they will do the trick. Swallow with water then go for a little nap and when you wake up your headache should hopefully be gone. Headaches are the worst symptom I get. I find myself not able to concentrate on anything at all meaning I can hardly get anything done that I need to that day, so it is important I start my day with a good dose of old fashioned painkillers to tackle that headache from the get go. I have also just discovered that Nurofen have heat patches for relieving period pain, defo going to try these.

3. Exercise
Although exercising may be the last thing you want to do when you have your period, it really can help. Keeping active will distract you from the pain. Try swimming, cycling or going a run to keep your body and mind active and stop you from thinking about the pain. It will help you feel happy and keep your hormones from causing you to feel down that day as you will feel like you have achieved something productive.

4. Heat
The good old trusty hot water bottle is great for easing the muscles to lessen the pain. Make sure not to use boiling water but warm water to ensure you don't burn or damage you skin. Heat pads can also be used for effective pain relief.

5. Warm Bath or Shower 
Taking a warm bath or shower will ease the muscle pain and help you to relax. Try running a big bubble bath, lighting some candles and chilling with a glass of wine or your favourite magazine to help you relax and distract you from the pain. 

6. Massage 
Last but not least, nothing can relieve the pain like a good old massage. Try massaging your lower abdomen gently using circular motions to reduce the pain. If you have a partner try having them massage your back pain or even giving you a head massage to help provide some pain relief. Again, this helps you to relax distracting you from the pain and also helps ease the cramps through the massaging technique. 

Hope this helped girlies, share you tips below!
