How To Help Cramps During .....T.O.M. (time of the month)

So ladies we all have had those months where its like, okay your cycle and you are not getting along. Some people have heavy or light cycles, and some have bad cramps to some having none. For you all who have bad cramps. Check out my blog for ways to help that. Lets Start off by understanding what exactly cramps are.

During your menstrual period, your uterus contracts to help expel its lining. Hormone-like substances (prostaglandins) involved in pain and inflammation trigger the uterine muscle contractions. Higher levels of prostaglandins are associated with more-severe menstrual cramps.

You may be at greater risk of menstrual cramps if:
  • You're younger than age 30
  • You started puberty early, at age 11 or younger
  • You have heavy bleeding during periods (menorrhagia)
  • You have irregular menstrual bleeding (metrorrhagia)
  • You've never given birth
  • You have a family history of dysmenorrhea
  • You're a smoker

"As a young girl, I started mine when I was about 9 years old. I was in the 4th grade. It took me a while to get adjusted. I would have accidents because my menstrual was so heavy. Finally in high school when I was 16 or 17 my mom taught me about tampons. " I would cramp in my butt area never my stomach area. I thought it was werid, it would be so bad I couldn't move 2-5 mins. I met someone in college and they had the same issue. Ladies its good to talk to other ladies as well. Now I am on birth control at age 24, I haven't had a period in over a year because of it.
