Most people have experienced PMS symptoms during their period, but the good part is that they can be managed while you are having them and they go away after the first few days. Here are our top tips for making their period as pain-free as possible:

  • Eat well and stay hydrated
  • Listen to their body by getting extra rest, exercise, and be compassionate with themself
  • Use heat to soothe cramps by applying their Warmie or other heating pad to the area of discomfort, or by taking a hot bath
  • Ask your guardian if you can take over-the-counter pain medicine like ibuprofen (Advil), naproxen (Aleve), or acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • If their PMS symptoms are becoming difficult to manage, see a medical professional
