How do I induce a period

That helps with menstrual cramps - tips and advice

This helps with menstrual cramps

Every month women have to go through these difficult days: The menstrual period can bring discomfort, pain and depression. We give tips on how to get through menstruation.

On average every 28 days we experience a more or less strong pulling in the abdomen. Usually we already feel a few days before the menstrual period is imminent: headaches, depressive moods, impure skin and cravings indicate the menstruation induced by hormones. In healthy and fertile women, this happens ten to 14 days after ovulation, provided the egg has not been fertilized. That is why the absence of menstruation is a first sure sign of pregnancy.

Relieve PMS symptoms

If the days before the days are busy, feeling weak and drained, you probably have premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Hormone fluctuations between ovulation and menstruation can make us feel uncomfortable and sometimes don't even know where our symptoms suddenly come from. Here it is helpful to use an app or a cycle calendar to calculate ovulation and thus find out approximately the first day of your period. Knowing where you are in your cycle allows you to be considerate of the toughest days of the month, take plenty of time for yourself, and do things that are good for you. Herbal teas, gentle exercise, and plenty of sleep will help you through PMS and menstruation.

For acute menstrual complaints

The first two to three days of menstruation in particular are accompanied by abdominal pain, headaches and migraines or even nausea and indigestion for many women. Warmth helps relieve the cramps in the lower abdomen. A hot water bottle or a heating pad are ideal here. A warm bath with relaxing lavender can also alleviate the symptoms. Yoga, Pilates, and other gentle workouts are also relaxing. However, if you are in pain that makes it impossible for you to work, you should see your gynecologist. Extreme abdominal pain during your period can also be due to other causes that should be investigated. Your doctor can also tell you about anticonvulsant medications.

One small consolation: Many women report that they experience less abdominal pain after giving birth.
