Menstruation pain is a disease that most of the women and adolescents suffer from. This is a mirror that symbolizes every woman’s health. Menstruation is a very common occurrence, occurring once in 28 days and usually with three days of blood flow.
Menstruation is also referred to as a fall in the womb where the uterus is ready to conceive, not receiving the male ejaculation which is the main factor for pregnancy. This is the removal of the capsule from which the embryo is prepared. Menopause, or re-emergence, is a once-in-a-lifetime rescue operation that takes place once a month, from the age of 12 to 13 years for menopause.
This phenomenon usually stops when she is pregnant and is breastfeeding her baby. In addition, menopause can be a symptom of an underlying disease. Menstruation occurs during this condition and some girls have hormonal imbalances, such as breast pain, headaches, conditional pain, emotional tension, and minor discomfort in the abdomen as they approach menstruation.
But if someone is unable to tolerate these symptoms and is so worn out that they cannot continue to work every day, it is a medical condition. In addition, if the blood is left for more than three days, if the blood is clotted, if the abnormal odor is present, or if the condition is severe, then treatment is necessary.
The cause of the abnormal affliction may also be the uterine and reproductive organs. The abnormal density of the uterine wall can be referred to as uterine fibroids, tumors, malignancies, ovarian cysts, and infections.
If some hand medication does not reduce pain, it is best to consult a physician. It may also be due to decreased menstrual blood pressure, anemia, worms, mental disorders, and obesity. The medication offered is different from person to person. Therefore, this problem can be avoided by taking medication from an educated doctor.
“Mommy, I can’t bear the pain today, mommy oh it is so hard ….my stomach hurts …”
This is a story I hear every month in a girl’s home … personally in our home as well. Very sad to hear.
Dear my friends, I’m going to talk about the menstrual pain that is experienced by every girl.
Menstrual pain is a very easy word … but only girls know how dangerous that word is.
Some girls hear the word and cry … (me too) From the whole world, Women have to go through a lot of suffering because of the increased strength a woman possesses. So women have to endure the pain of menstruation too.
Let me tell you a little Analogy about Menstruation
The pain of burning 100 alive puppies at once. This is how I feel about it. It takes place monthly or once in 24 days or 28 days. The body gives certain signals to indicate menstruation a week beforehand.
A week before the cycle starts
- The back hurt
- The legs hurt
- Fish dancing feeling of the underbelly
- The thighs hurt
When these symptoms occur, our girls get to know that their menstruation circle is nearing.
Shall we make a change to this?
Let’s create a Period Tracker. But How?
Suppose you have a maximum of 30 days a month, then 365 days a year. let’s mark these menstruation dates.
What would you say? I have more experience doing this for three years. Marking is not enough. Hmm, Let’s take a look at how this should be done.
First take a blank book.
Then let’s name this book. Let’s say….. Shark Days Tracker Book so that nobody will guess what it is.
Now to create the tracker a table should be drawn to include the 12 months and 365 days. ( I’ll share a picture of mine to refer )
Now you can log in all the details such as:
- Blood type
- Blood flow pattern ex: high, regular, soft, dots ( in drops )
- How much pain you feel
- Your sexual behavior
- Even if you experience a fever, you better log it in
- If there was unprotected sexual behavior, add that too.
- Also, the married ladies can log in ways of birth control that is used by you.
The importance of this is that we are able to monitor the sicknesses and symptoms which is much easier for the doctors when treating an illness. Also, it’s much easier for us to get ready for the pains and aches beforehand when we know when it will be occurring.
Many of you may find this useless but to tell the truth, this has personally helped me a lot. Once my menstruation cycle wasn’t functioning properly and had to reach out to a hospital, where this tracker helped a lot for the diagnosis. Therefore you should try this too.
Menstrual Pain Relief Remedies
Now let’s take a look at how we should face the pains and what should be done during those days.
