Six top tips for dealing with period pain

#help, #periods

For the first few days of your period, and sometimes up to a week before, you may get uncomfortable tummy pains. This is called period pain or period cramps and you get it in your lower back, abdomen and groin area.

Most girls experience this at some point in their lives and it can be very different for everyone. It can make you feel miserable, not to mention a little moody(!) so here are a few tips to help you feel better.

Get out and about – any kind of movement can actually make you feel good.

If that doesn’t float your boat, run yourself a warm bath as this can help your body relax and ease the pain.

A hot water bottle can do the trick too.

Constipation (pain when releasing waste food) can make period pain worse, so make sure you eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables to avoid this happening.

Drink plenty of water too as this helps keep your body hydrated.

If it’s really bad, ask an adult for pain killers as this may take away most of the pain. Just remember that any kind of medication you take should only be taken under adult supervision
