A Few Words
Your period is your body’s way of telling you that your reproductive system is working properly.Just as every woman is one and only, every woman’s period is unique. Some periods are long, some short, some are heavy and others are light.After a few years’ of monthly bleeding, most women start to get a feel for their period’s frequency, duration, flow and pain of course.
Period And Pain
If you are suffering from period pain you are not alone here.8o% of women suffer from period pain once in their lifetime.Huge number if you think about it.Teen or in your menopause it doesn’t really matter.Research showed us that the most difficult day is the first day and for about 5-10% of women the pain is severe enough to disrupt their life.Pain comes not alone but is followed of other inconvenient symptoms like excessive bleeding,tender breasts, a swollen stomach, lack of concentration, mood swings, clumsiness and tiredness.
There are two main types of period pain:
Common in teenage girls and young women.It occurs by the decreased supply of blood to the womb.There can also be cramping pains caused by the womb contracting to shed its lining. You can feel the pain mostly in the lower part of the abdominen and the back.It is a natural mild condition that can be easily treated with a contraceptive pill or some relaxation.
This kind of pain may be a sign of something else like pelvic infection.It occurs after 25 and comes with long heavy periods.You may feel pain after your period too.But if you start to experience period pain as an adult you should not hesitate to consult a GP.
Period And Workout
Can we train during our period or not?Australian researchers claim that there is more risk to get knee injury while having your period due to poorer motor control during menstruation—anything from letting your knee collapse inward when you land to letting your quads do all the work instead of involving the hamstrings and glutes.Appart from this there is no other fact that tells us to stay in bed when we have ”our bad days”.Just listen to your body and don’t reach your limits – keep the tense low.Moreover during mensturation our body burns more calories because of the process and it is more likely to lose some weight if we watch out our diet these days.
