Menstrual or periods what most of us ladies like to call them, are a painful cycle of 5 days that leave you in pain and exhausted all day and all night. You feel cranky, irritated, painful, moody, hungry, sad or say everything that gushes through your brain during those days.
We can relate to your pain very well ladies! But you don’t have to suffer through so much pain and torture anymore. Simply try these 11 ways to relieve the menstrual pain that almost feels like it’s going to kill us any moment.
1. DRINK HERBAL TEA
Raspberry leaf tea or chamomile tea works best but if you don’t have any of these available then you can have any other herbal tea of your choice. They work therapeutically and a little sedative to help your nerves calm and relieve the pain.
2. ESSENTIAL OILS ALL THE WAY
Massage your lower abdomen with any essential oil of your choice and see the pain alleviate from your body like magic. Lavender, marjoram and clary sage are known best to treat period pain.
3. HEATING PAD IS BAE!
Relax with a hot water bottle or a heating pad on your abdomen and snuggle up in your cozy blanket for a nap.
4. AN EASY BREEZY WORKOUT
Don’t make it too heavy or long, just workout for a few minutes to increase the blood flow in the body which will reduce pain and release the endorphins to decrease and cure the pain. If you cannot workout, then at least you could do is take a walk and feel the difference.
5. EAT SOME DARK CHOCOLATE
Dark chocolate contains 70% of cocoa, which is great in relieving menstrual cramps and releases endorphins in the body that again, helps ease the pain.
Yup, you read that right ladies! Orgasm is the key to painless periods, so jump in and enjoy this pleasurable time either with your bae or go solo for more!
