5 Tips For Menstrual Cramp Relief

Menstrual cramps don't have to be such a pain! Check out how you can ease this rough time to keep healthy and moving.

Menstrual cramps are a total pain. They can double you over and ruin your day. But not if you know a few smart (and comfy) moves.

Why the Cramps?

Menstrual cramps are just you feeling your uterus contract to shed its lining. Pretty amazing, even if it doesn't feel so great.

Exercise and stretch. It loosens up your muscles and eases the pain.

Rub your lower tummy. That helps relax the muscles.

Medicate. Try an over-the-counter pain reliever. These medicines can help make the cramps less severe. If you’re a teen, make sure to get the parental stamp of approval first.

Fortify. Vitamin B1 or magnesium supplements may reduce cramps, bloating, and other PMS symptoms. (You know the parental approval deal).

Heat things up. Take a warm bath or find a heating pad for your lower belly or back. A little heat goes a long way to reduce the effects of your menstrual cramps.

Still In Pain? If you try all these ideas and you still feel a lot of period pain, it may be time to talk to someone. Schedule an appointment with your doctor. Make sure to take your menstrual cycle charts and food logs (if you keep any), and tell them about any medications, over-the-counter drugs, vitamins, or mineral supplements you’re taking.
