6 tips! Relieve menstrual pain

      Almost every woman has encountered the issue of menstrual pain, enduring the discomfort every month. Many suffer to the extent of being unable to sleep or find their daily lives affected, sometimes leading to missing work altogether.

  • Apply warmth to the lower abdomen: This method is simple yet highly effective. Just use a hot water bottle or warm compress on the lower abdomen or the area experiencing pain. The warmth helps to gradually relax the tense muscles, alleviating menstrual pain.
  • Drink warm beverages: Apart from external warmth, internally warming up the body with hot drinks throughout the day can also help reduce menstrual pain. However, avoid drinks like tea or coffee as caffeine can exacerbate menstrual pain.



  • Focus on foods rich in magnesium: Choosing the right foods can help alleviate menstrual pain without relying solely on medication. Foods rich in magnesium are particularly suitable during menstruation, such as vegetables and fruits, to help reduce body waste and improve blood circulation.
  • Exercise: Regular exercise can help reduce menstrual pain as effectively as pain medication. Exercise increases the production of endorphins, which help reduce menstrual pain.



  • Meditation or yoga: Another method that can help reduce menstrual pain is meditation, as it helps reduce stress. Yoga stretches the abdominal and back muscles, helping to alleviate menstrual pain.
  • Gentle abdominal massage: If you experience menstrual pain while sitting at work, you can alleviate it by gently massaging the lower abdomen in circular motions. This helps relax the tense muscles, thus reducing menstrual pain.


Abnormal vaginal bleeding: When to see a doctor
  • Women who do not have regular periods (either not yet started or have stopped) but experience vaginal bleeding, such as in children or postmenopausal women.
  • Reproductive-age women with regular periods but experience bleeding outside of their regular menstrual cycle or after intercourse.
  • Having heavier periods or longer menstrual durations, noticeable by using more than 4 soaked sanitary pads per day or having periods lasting more than 7 days, which may cause fatigue and weakness due to anemia.

      If you've tried basic self-care measures and the menstrual pain persists or worsens, it could be a warning sign of underlying reproductive system abnormalities. Therefore, if you experience more severe pain along with the aforementioned symptoms, it's advisable to consult a doctor promptly for further evaluation and treatment.
