Periods Suck, But These 5 Cramp-Easing Tips Will Have You Feeling Like A Boss!

Ladies, we all know what time of the month it is when we feel like our insides are being twisted into a pretzel. Yep, you guessed it - menstrual cramps. Aunt Flo's monthly visit isn't exactly a walk in the park. It's like a rite of passage into womanhood that no one ever really wants to go through, but we all do anyway. It's more like a full-blown marathon, complete with cramps that make you want to curl up in a ball and cry. So, what exactly are menstrual cramps? It's like your uterus is throwing a temper tantrum because it didn't get its way. And boy, does it make its presence known.


Your uterus is shedding its lining, and those contractions can cause some serious discomfort. Now, I know you're probably thinking, "Thanks for the biology lesson, Ranjani, but how do I make these devilish cramps go away?" Well, fear not my fellow uterus-owners! There are ways to ease those pesky cramps:

  1. Heat things up - no, I'm not talking about a steamy romance novel. I'm talking about applying heat to your lower abdomen. You can use a heating pad, a hot water bottle, or even a warm towel. Just be careful not to burn yourself, we don't want to add insult to injury.

  2. Exercise - I know, I know, the last thing you want to do when you're feeling like a bloated balloon is to hit the gym. But trust me, a little bit of exercise can do wonders for your cramps. It releases endorphins, which are natural painkillers, and it also helps get your blood flowing. Just don't do heavy trainings, a 30 mins walk in the woods can do good.

  3. Treat yourself - indulge in some chocolate, have a cup of tea, or binge-watch your favorite show. Whatever makes you feel good, do it! You deserve it.

  4. Take painkillers - sometimes, the pain is just too much to handle on your own. That's when you need to call in the big guns. Over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen can help take the edge off.

  5. Get some rest - if all else fails, crawl into bed and take a nap. Your body needs time to heal and recharge, so don't be afraid to take a break.

Menstrual cramps may be a pain in the you-know-what, but with a little bit of TLC, you can make it through. Just remember, this too shall pass. And in the meantime, don't forget the chocolate.
