period pain


Period pain is making the life of women so much difficult. If you are a man you may have no clue what I am talking about. But the truth is that every month for about five days, women are suffering.

Although we can not do much to change that, we can have some relief with natural remedies. Yet if you choose to take painkillers, you can go ahead and do it. However, taking drugs every month can cause side effects.

Though it is appealing to have zero pain by taking pills, the long-term health issues you might develop are not desirable in the least. It is also possible for drugs to lose their effect on your pain if you do take them for a long time. 

A woman’s period is like once a month her body accidentally hits caps lock on her emotions.

Thankfully there are other ways to ease period pain that are scientifically proven to work. But to use them, it is better to learn why your body hurts during your period.

Period pain occurs because of contractions at your womb: the menstrual cramps. Because of them, your body releases chemicals that trigger pain.

However, there is some good news. According to scientific research, there are five things you can do to have natural relief from the pain. 

So, in this episode we are talking all about period pain:

  • what is happening to our body
  • why we feel pain
  • how we can ease the pain without drugs
  • what healthy habits we should have to reduce period pain

But what is actually important for women about periods is to start talking about them.

Although it is still taboo, especially in the workplace, women should be free to talk about it. Yet men should also be included in the conversation because this is how we can normalize this issue. 

If nature really acknowledged the so-called women's month, the entire month would have been period-pains-free.
