How to Ease Menstrual Cycle Symptoms

A menstrual cycle is the series of monthly changes that a women’s body goes through to prepare for possible pregnancy. Every month, the uterus grows a new, thickened lining called the endometrium. The lining is meant to hold a fertilized egg during pregnancy. If there is no pregnancy, there is no fertilized egg so the uterus sheds its lining. The shedding of the lining is the monthly menstrual bleeding that women go through.

Women experience different menstrual symptoms throughout their life. Some women suffer from extreme discomfort while others have very minor pain. The symptoms can be affected by age, weight, activity level, food or drink, and birth control or other medications.

Common symptoms that occur include…

• Bloating in the abdomen
• Cramping in the legs, back and lower abdomen
• Breast tenderness
• Headache
• Foul Odor
• Depression
• Anxiety
• Mood Swings
• Irritability
• Fatigue

To help manage discomfort during PMS or Menstruation, women should…

• Cut back on salt to reduce bloating
• Lessen caffeine intake to control irritability and tension
• Increase calcium consumption to relieve PMS
• Keep active with aerobics or cardio to improve blood flow and reduce pain
• Get consistent sleep to control fatigue
• Apply a heating pad to your abdomen or soak in a warm bath to alleviate cramping
• Take non prescription pain killers to relieve headaches, bloating, and cramps
• Use feminine washes like Intimore™ Fresh Sensitive to sooth and moisturize skin discomfort as well as clean and freshen away foul odors.
