When they are in their period, most women feel tired and fatigued, and they haven’t got the will to communicate nor move.
There are also some women that are blessed with easy periods, and these women do not feel the same symptoms as the others. In this article, we are going to show you what are the things you must not do during your period because they are dangerous for your health.
Do not skip meals
When you are in your period, you are losing blood, and that is the reason why you should never skip your meals. The foods that you are eating will make you feel energized and it will help you recover the nutrients that you are losing.
During your period, there are high chances that you get pregnant. In order to avoid that, and also infections the best thing to do is to avoid having sex during this time, or if you are having an intercourse, make sure that it is protected.
Stay away from physical work
Avoid doing physical work during your period. The reason why you should avoid it is that when in your period you will be feeling pain in your stomach and back, and by doing some physical work, you will just make the pain worse.
Don’t eat fast foods
You need to avoid junk foods (not just in your period) because these foods do not contain any healthy nutritional values. You should opt for healthy foods like vegetables and fruits.
The reality is that you will be able to do almost anything that you could do when you are not on your period, but there are sometimes where it seems like your best option is to stay in and take a rest. Do the things that you are comfortable with.
Stay up all night
When in this situation, you may experience some trouble when you try to get some sleep, but you will feel much better if you fall asleep early. You can put on some relaxing music or some sleeping sound which will help you fall asleep faster.
Some extra tips:
It is not a good idea to drink ice cold water, because it can lead to the menstrual blood remaining in the uterine wall, which can, in turn, lead to the appearance of cysts and even cancer.
Also avoid eating cucumbers, because they contain a substance that will stay in your uterine wall, which can lead to some side-effects. As we mentioned above, it is always a good idea to eat vegetables, but cucumbers are the one vegetable that you need to avoid.
