PMS. That dreaded week (OR MORE) of a month where our bodies shed blood and uterine lining. We ache. We bloat. We hate the world. But what can we do to combat this?
The Truth About PMS and Periods
Aside from getting our female organs surgically removed (BEST DECISION OF MY LIFE,) there are a ton of articles aimed to help ease our symptoms. I think I've read them all, and disagree with every one of them. So let's get real about PMS and periods.
Meditate They Said. It Will Be Good For You They Said....
Excuse me? While I'm all for clearing one's mind and relaxation, I don't see how meditation is going to help with cramps from hell, and my uterine walls contracting. Can you? I know it's to help calm nerves and regulate emotions, but listen....telling a crazed woman whose hormones are flooding her brain to calm down, and relax, is pretty much a death sentence. DON'T.DO.THAT!
They Tell Us to Exercise
Can you hear me laughing right now? I don't know about you, but when I had my period, it was like flood gates inside me opened up. Standing or simple walking could cause leaks and enormous embarrassments. There were times I had to run out of stores with blood running down my jeans, and sit on a garbage bag just to get home. And that was while using a tampon AND a pad. Yet the experts are telling me to exercise???? Ummm, no! How about some binge watching tv, a hot water bottle, a heating pad, over the counter pain meds, and chocolate. GIVE.ME.ALL.THE.CHOCOLATE!
Vitamins and Supplements
Does chocolate count for a vitamin? If I supplement it for every meal while I'm menstruating, that makes it a supplement right? In all seriousness though, chocolate is PROVEN to help with PMS. Yes, you read that right. Chocolate contains magnesium which improves energy naturally, and alleviates cramps. Will it take them away completely? No, but paired with heated therapy and some ibuprofen, you should be good to go. (Unless you suffer from Endo or PCOS, because that's a whole other ball game.)
Since we're on the subject of supplements, let's talk more about pain relief. Ibuprofen (Advil) and Naproxen (Aleve) not only help with pain, but they also lessen the contractions of your uterus, which is why you get cramps in the first place.
The Truth is Periods Suck, But We Can Make Them Suck A Little Less!
Menstruating is part of being a woman. And although it sucks, if it weren't for them, we wouldn't be able to become moms. But that doesn't mean we have to suffer. The PMS Package knows that our time of the month is tiring, crampy, and sometimes pretty abysmal. But it doesn't have to be. Their carefully curated packages come every month, and they're chock full of items to ease that cruddy time of the month.
