Hello pretty ladies,
Today, again, I am going to talk about women’s health. Women these days are very strong and confident but issues like PMS can drag them down. PMS stands for premenstrual syndrome and it is faced by almost every woman. The symptoms include bloating, mood swings, tender breasts, food cravings, fatigue, irritability and depression. If you also go through this phase before your periods, I am going to reveal nine ways by which you can get rid of or control PMS.
What is PMS?
PMS stands for premenstrual syndrome. It’s the combination of symptoms that some women suffer from a week or so before their period. Symptoms appear before your period starts (as many as five days) and will disappear during your period. Now that you know what it is, let’s read about the ways by which you can get rid of PMS.
We all are used to having way too much salts in our diet, which leads to bloating. Hence you need to eliminate excess salt. Another thing that you need to quit is alcohol. It not only impacts physical but mental health too. Start including a lot of fruits and veggies in your diet. If you think you can solve all your periods-related trouble with medicines, you are wrong. You need to get started with healthy eating to see a reduction in your PMS symptoms.
Indulge in more physical activities
Just remember to stay active and fit throughout the month. Indulge in some form of physical activity like yoga, jogging, Zumba etc. Since these activities release happy hormones they make you really happy and do not let you feel grumpy. Just keep your heart rate up and start working out as much as you can in order to get rid of those terrible PMS issues.
Check out herbal remedies
Black cohosh, chaste berry, evening primrose oil, ginger, dandelion, raspberry leaf or natural progesterone creams are considered perfect for PMS, especially if your bust area tends to become tender during this time. It soothes your mind and body and keeps you calm.
You can take vitamins
Vitamins may prove to be beneficial for PMS particularly B6 and E. Doctors do not promise that these supplements will definitely work still these multivitamins are worth-trying as they boost overall health.
Women who suffer from issues like cramps, backache, headaches etc can take medical help. Even though pain killers before or during periods do not cause any harm, it is always a good idea to consult your doctor first.
Stress is one factor that leads to many health conditions. So first of all try to control your stress. It is important that you take sufficient rest and get plenty of beauty sleep. Go for breathing exercises, yoga or even massages to keep yourself calm and composed.
Consider birth control pills
Birth control pills help regulate your cycle and keep you healthy. If your menstrual cycle is under check and you are healthy enough, your PMS symptoms might get reduced over time.
Look into diuretics
Bloating is one big PMS issue. But, don’t get stressed. Cut back on salt and exercise a lot. Still, if these factors are not working in your favour, take help of diuretics. These prescription drugs help your body get rid of all the excess water by boosting urine output. Make sure your doctor knows all your health issues in advance as these medicines may lead to constipation, high potassium levels and lower blood pressure.
Chart your symptoms
You need to chart your symptoms month wise. Observe and write down what you experience for a few month and then you can get medical help. For example, if you keep getting depressed during that time of the month, it might lead to bigger issues in future if the situation is not tackled well. So create a list of symptoms, chart out the worst ones, and take expert help. PMS might be natural but you don’t have to live with it.
