  • Exercise is one of the best way to relieve menstrual cramps. I engage in exercise two weeks or a week before my menstrual period and its been so helpful. It'll flow easily without pain. Don't wait till when it starts before you engage in frequent exercises.

  • One way to deal with menstrual pain, which is medically known as Dysmenorrhia, is avoidance of sugary foods and drinks. Prior to your next Mendes. It has been scientifically proven, that sugary foods and drinks increase the concentration of prostaglandins, a chemical that causes painful muscilar spasm of the uterine walls. The severity of the pains depends on the concentration of prostaglandins in the blood stream.

  • You can also mix ginger and tumeric and make it as tea. My sister tried it and it worked for her.

    You just have to make sure that its warm. Most times hot water helps to make the cloat melt faster and it has been found out that using drugs is not good because it can be harmful later on.
