Menstruation is a diverse process, therefore, there is no single panacea. By experiment, some have determined that pain significantly reduces the use of a short hot bath — about 10 minutes, that's all. Hot water helps to get rid of muscle spasm, and what is monthly, if not a contraction of the uterus? Just these cuts and cause us painful feelings in the lower abdomen, and sometimes quite strong.
But be careful - baths during menstruation dilate blood vessels, therefore, blood loss may be greater. To avoid this, eat plenty of iron buckwheat or liver. Someone helps hot-water bottle with hot water, someone - with ice. But the pain during menstruation is provoked, in the first place, by uterine contractions, in addition, hormones that contribute to this. And in the second place - stress, which always aggravates everything. The increased content of prostaglandins in the blood (the hormones themselves) causes the uterus to contract even more.
Head over to the end. The most radical method is taking a pill. Tablets are guaranteed to help, but they are recommended to take only with very strong pain. Any analgesics and antispasmodics will work. Less useful - "analgin", "spazmalgon", "baralgetas." A more harmless drug - "but the spa", it is prescribed to relieve spasms, even for pregnant women. You can drink 6 tablets per day (in three doses) - this is the permissible dose. “Aspirin” is not recommended, drink “ketans” too - only as a last resort. This is a potent drug.
We now turn to more harmless ways to relieve pain. Asking how to reduce pain during menstruation, pay attention to those factors that make you feel worse. For example, an upset stomach. If you have it often coincides with the monthly, it means that you lighten the diet. A week before the onset of menstruation and while eating a lot of vegetables, drink vegetable juices. Dairy and fat - only hurt. Good help intestine avocado and soy.
The second point is, of course, stress. We can not think about it, but it is excessive irritability and nervousness that adds to our pain. During menstruation for this reason, it is not recommended to drink black tea and coffee. Best will help infusions of valerian, mint and chamomile.
The third point is, of course, actually, uterine contraction. Sport can help them. You do not want to move during menstruation? Understandable desire. But it is regular exercise that normalizes hormones, and therefore, significantly reduces uterine contractions. Fitness, aerobics, dancing, walking - everything fits. There are some exercises. For example, lie on your back and put your feet on the wall, keeping them bent. Rest your feet, linger in this position for a few minutes. Another option is to lie down on your stomach, stand on your arms and curve your neck and back until you twist a little. Repeat several times. On your knees and elbows, hang your head and shake it freely. 2 minutes - and repeat again. Such simple exercises and diet will help to cope with pain during menstruation.
