Quick Facts About Period Pain & Symptoms
Period pains are worse during the winter
Although there is little information on why this is, it’s highly common for women to report more painful periods during the colder months. Researchers are still searching for the reasons behind this, but most experts blame this phenomena on the lack of vitamin D, higher levels of sedentary activity, increased hormonal secretion associated with cold, winter months.
Cramps and other symptoms are caused by contractions
Yes, that means contractions like labour contractions - albeit, in a much milder form. During your period, your uterus is working to shed its lining and blood that it builds up during other weeks of your menstrual cycle. As it’s doing this, your uterus contracts which causes cramps as well as other symptoms like blood clots.
Period’s can cause iron deficiency
Although, on average, women only lose about a cup of blood (or less) during their period, losing that blood still means losing extra iron. Lack of iron can cause fatigue among other symptoms that can make period pains feel even worse than usual. An easy way to combat this is to eat iron rich foods like spinach, oatmeal, and tofu.
Some menstrual cramps can be as painful as early labor
As mentioned earlier, period pains and other symptoms are caused by contractions. While these usually cause milder pain than actual labor contractions, some women experience cramps that are just as painful as early labor.
