Ways to ease menstrual cramps


Period cramps are caused by contractions in your uterus which are triggered by changes in your body’s hormone levels. Women who are younger than 30 years of age, who bleed heavily during their periods, who have irregular bleeding, who have a family history of period pain, who smoke, or who started puberty early (age 11 or earlier) are more likely to experience period pain. Here are a few ways that may ease your discomfort and pain and help you get back on track with your busy life.
