How to Deal With Your Periods So They Don’t Interfere With Your Daily Life

If your periods make you feel like you only have 3 weeks each months, then here are a few tips to help you change that.


Figure Out Your Date; Avoid Stressful Work

If you have a regular period cycle, consider yourself lucky¾regardless of how it may not feel that way. There are those who have very unpredictable periods, sometimes getting their periods twice a month. If you know the date of your periods, then you can plan ahead so that you don’t have a lot of work during that week. If moving around a lot hurts too much, consider getting all the work done beforehand so you need not do so during your periods. If you don’t know how to calculate your period’s date or simply don’t remember the dates, there are plenty of free apps for your phone to help you with this. Simply download, enter your last period date and duration, and it will do the rest for you.


Avoid the Things You Feel Aggravate Your Periods

Certain things we do throughout the month may actually feel like it’s aggravating your periods. For example, stressing out during the month has actually proven to be a sure way to aggravate your periods. More often than not, this means you have heavy bleeding and most certainly a lot of pain. To avoid this, try your best to avoid the stress. If you work a stressful job, then consider doing a few de-stressing activities to counteract this. Yoga and meditation, in particular, are often recommended for those engaging in stressful jobs. The plus to this is that you may even engage in these activities during your periods.


Consult a Doctor If You Feel the Pain or Flow Is Unnatural

While not having pain at all is only for the lucky few, having a certain degree of pain at least is the norm for most women. However, some women may experience very painful periods or very heavy periods flow¾so bad that they’ll be changing pads almost hourly, even at night. In this case, it’s always best to get it checked by a gynaecologist ( ) just to be sure. It is also considered abnormal if your periods last more than a week, if you have large blood clots passing out, or if you feel dizzy or short of breath during your periods.   

Exercise Regularly To Reduce the Pain during Your Periods

Exercising is said to be a great way to make sure your period pain is minimum¾which in turn is a great way to make sure your periods doesn’t interfere with your day to day life. If possible, try to get in at least 20 minutes of exercise each day. It’s ok to not workout during your periods if the pain is too much. But try your best to keep active even during that time; moving around a bit instead of trying to sleep it off.


Beyond this, the only other thing you will have to do to make sure your periods don’t interfere with your daily life is to make sure you have your painkillers and other items that make your periods bearable at hand almost a week before you actually expect your periods.
