For some women, having their monthly period can be such a challenge. In fact, it can literally be a pain. They suffer from painful menstrual period also known as dysmenorrhea.
I, for one, suffer from it. I have even gone a couple of times to my gynecologist for some check up. Tests did not show anything unusual in my system.
So how do I cope with this monthly challenge? When the pain is bearable, I do my usual duties for the day. But if it is not, I rest and take some pain reliever. I also try to include some exercises and watch my food intake before my period. I’ve also recently learned that some fruits are good in fighting menstrual cramps, like bananas and pineapple. I will be including more of them in my diet 🙂
How about you? Is dysmenorrhea a monthly challenge for you? How do you cope with it?
