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 your period as pain-free as possible:

  • Eat well and stay hydrated
  • Listen to your body by getting extra rest, exercise, and be compassionate with yourself
  • Use heat to soothe cramps by applying your warmie 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 your PMS symptoms are becoming difficult to manage, see a medical professional
