WHAT CAUSES PERIOD PAIN?
As your body gets ready to break down the extra lining on the wall of your womb (uterus) it releases hormones called prostaglandins. These hormones trigger the muscles in your womb (uterus) to contract and push the lining out of your body through your vagina. (They're the same muscles that push a baby out of the womb during labour so they're pretty strong!) So why is it that you suffer from period pain when your friend hardly notices it? It could be because you have higher levels of prostaglandins which make the muscles in your womb (uterus) contract harder or faster. Or because the blood supply to your womb (uterus) decreases during the contractions so there's less oxygen reaching this part of your body, making the muscles cramp even more. Nobody really knows for sure - it's just one of those annoying facts of life that doesn't seem quite fair.
HOW TO COPE WITH THE PAIN?
- Curl up on the sofa or in bed with a hot water bottle (or a microwave heat pack) to warm your abdomen or lower back.
- Take a long soak in a warm bath with aromatherapy oils to help you relax.
- Gently rub your abdomen or get someone to give you a back massage.
- Try not to wear tight clothes just before and during your period.
- Do some gentle exercise - it's probably the last thing you feel like when you're doubled up with stomach cramps but exercise can help to ease the pain by relaxing the muscles in your womb (uterus) and increasing the blood supply to your pelvis. It may also help to lower the levels of prostaglandins, the hormones thought to be a cause of period pain.
- Aerobics, running and swimming are all good forms of exercise to help relieve period pain. You could also go for a brisk walk or lie down and cycle with your legs in the air.
- Stretch out - stand up straight and imagine there's a piece of string running from your heels, up your legs and spine and out through the top of your head. Pull in your stomach and breathe deeply as you imagine someone pulling slowly on the string so you're stretched up tall.
- Lifestyle changes can also make a real difference to period pain and PMS. Here's a few things you could try:
- Eat foods that are high in fibre, including plenty of salads and vegetables.
- Eat less salt and drink more water. This can help prevent water retention that leaves you with that bloated feeling.
- Cut down on sugary foods, chocolate, cakes and biscuits.
- Cut down on sugary drinks - have mineral water or pure fruit juice instead.
- Try a vitamin B6 supplement or one that contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA) such as starflower oil or evening primrose oil. Both are thought to help maintain hormonal balance.
