7 things to avoid when you have your period

Having your period is like a roller coaster ride! When Aunt Flo comes to visit you, you have to deal with uncomfortable bloating, constant cramps, and extreme mood swings. All of this can cause discomfort, but let's face it, menstruation is a natural phenomenon. Their presence indicates good health!

However, there are some things you should avoid doing to make those days of the month a little more bearable.

1. Eating salty foods

Foods high in salt are not healthy when you are on your period because they can make your stomach cramps worse. Additionally, it can cause severe bloating and worsen discomfort. This is one of the worst things you can do while on your period!

2. Lots of coffee

High levels of caffeine can worsen your pain and also contribute to chest pain. You may crave caffeine, but you'll definitely need to cut back on your coffee consumption.

3. Using a douche

Cleansing can be very harmful. This can cause a number of health problems such as infections and increase the risk of developing sexually transmitted diseases by affecting the vagina's natural barrier against bacteria.

4. Wearing the same sanitary product all day long

Whether you use sanitary pads or tampons, using the same product for more than 4-6 hours is a breeding ground for bacteria and leads to the development of odor. Additionally, it can also cause rashes and TSS (toxic shock syndrome).

5. Waxing or shaving

When you have your period, avoid waxing. This area is very sensitive and pulling on the wax strip can be painful, making you more uncomfortable. Shaving can be an extremely complicated task due to your menstrual cycle. If you get a cut from shaving, it can lead to infection. So schedule it a week after your period to reduce the risk of pain and discomfort.

6. Practicing unprotected sex

First of all, it's completely normal to have sex during your period, but having unprotected sex during your period is a bad idea! If you do not intend to get married, you should avoid this risk. In addition, safe sex is also a way to avoid sexually transmitted diseases. Period or no period, always practice safe sex to avoid infections and sexually transmitted diseases.

7. Skipping meals and diets

Skipping meals during your period is not a good idea as it can seriously affect your energy levels, making you sluggish and irritable. However, this doesn't mean you replace real meals with snacks. Junk foods contain high amounts of salt and sugar, which contribute to problems like bloating and discomfort. Ladies, these small steps can ensure you don't make your period discomfort worse!
