#girlhacks 1: What to do during your period?

Period. One word, who has thousands feeling!

Maybe I am 1 out of millions of women who always feel cramps, stomach ache, weary and moody every time I have my period. Of course it’s normal for women, it’s just the effect of the period sometimes it’s different with other women.

Having regular menstrual cycles is a sign that important parts of our body are working normally. The menstrual cycle provides important body chemicals, called hormones, to keep you healthy.

What happens during the menstrual cycle?

In the first half of the cycle, levels of estrogen (the “female hormone”) start to rise. Estrogen plays an important role in keeping you healthy, especially by helping you to build strong bones and to help keep them strong as you get older. Estrogen also makes the lining of the uterus (womb) grow and thicken. This lining of the womb is a place that will nourish the embryo if a pregnancy occurs. At the same time, the lining of the womb is growing, an egg, or ovum, in one of the ovaries, starts to mature. At about day 14 of an average 28-day cycle, the egg leaves the ovary. This is called ovulation.

After the egg has left the ovary, it travels through the fallopian tube to the uterus. Hormone levels rise and help prepare the uterine lining for pregnancy. A woman is most likely to get pregnant during the 3 days before or on the day of ovulation. Keep in mind, women with cycles that are shorter or longer than average may ovulate before or after day 14.

What should we eat to reduce the pain? 

What kind of sport that we can do?

Go for a light jog, or at least take a good walk. Even your uterus feels like it’s trying to claw its way out of your body is go running. But in fact, when you exercise, your body releases endorphin, a hormone that makes you feel good. That endorphin can counteract the bad hormones that give you cramps (prostaglandins). To make running a bit easier so you’re not squatting on the sidewalk every half mile (something I have 100 percent done), try taking a single painkiller about half an hour before your run.

Or sometimes I also doing yoga, it’s really good to make our body feel relax 😉

Change the pad or tampon often!

Usually, during 1-3 days of my period I change my pad quite often, maybe around 5 times per day, so it’s like every 4-5 hours. It will make you feel clean and prevent very bad bacteria during the period.
