Periods can be incredibly painful, there is no denying that. During menstruation, it is common for women to experience discomfort and pain. The level of pain, on the other hand, can vary. While some people experience dull and light pain, others find it unbearable.


During a period, the uterus contracts to squeeze the lining away from the uterine wall and allow it to exit the body via the vagina. These contractions, also known as cramps, can be painful or uncomfortable for many women.


Menstrual cramps are typically more severe at the start of a period and less as the days pass. During these trying times, however, you can rely on a variety of home remedies for effective relief.


It is essential to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to avoid bloating. But that isn't all. Here are five home remedies to help you have pain-free periods:


Period Pain Relief Home Remedies


1. Apply Heat to Lower Abdomen


A hot water bottle or heating pad placed against the abdomen can help to relax the muscles and relieve cramps.


Heat relaxes the uterine muscle and those surrounding it, which may ease cramping and discomfort.


To relieve back pain, a heating pad can be applied to the lower back. Another option is to soak in a hot bath, which can help relax the muscles in the abdomen, back, and legs.

2. Engage in a Light Workout


Although exercise may be the last thing on many people's minds when they have cramps, it may be very beneficial in providing pain relief.


Yoga asanas like Goumukhasana, Bhujangasana, and Janu Sirsasana during menstruation can help relieve pain.


One can also try hands-on light exercises as it also produces endorphins, which are natural pain relievers.


However, if you are a new mother and are still breastfeeding your child, wear nursing pads if you are concerned about leaking breast milk while working out.


Because this useful breastfeeding accessory fits easily under your regular or nursing bra, it can prevent milk leakage.



3. Making Dietary Changes


Making dietary changes may help to reduce menstrual cramps.
Eating a well-balanced diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fruits and vegetables, nuts, lean proteins, and whole grains keeps the body healthy as well as fit.


Dehydration is a common cause of muscle cramps, so increasing fluid intake will help the body stay hydrated.


Herbal teas can also be effective in treating menstrual cramps due to the warming and soothing properties of the herbs.


Prioritizing a fiber-rich diet low in oils and refined sugars can increase metabolism and reduce abdominal discomfort during your menstrual cycle.

4. Massage the Lower Abdomen


A massage or self-massage over the abdomen can also relax the pelvic muscles and relieve cramping.


People can aid this process by gently massaging massage oil, body lotion, or coconut oil into their skin.

5. Add Dark Chocolates and Bananas to Your Routine


A small amount of dark chocolate is also known to help relieve period cramps.


Dark chocolate contains magnesium, which relaxes muscles and relieves pain. Other magnesium-rich foods to try include a handful of almonds or pumpkin seeds.


Bananas are another superfood to add to your period bucket list.
A banana has numerous health benefits, but did you know it can also help with period pain? Bananas are high in Vitamin B6 and potassium, which help with bloating and cramping.
