understanding women

Menstrual cramps are sharp pains in a woman's lower abdomen that occur when her menstrual period begins and may continue for 2-3 days. Symptoms can range in severity from a mild annoyance to severe pain that interferes with normal activities.menstrual pain...

Menstrual cramps are the leading cause of absenteeism in women younger than 30 years. Although over half of women who have menstrual periods experience some discomfort, 10% are temporarily disabled by symptoms.

The following circumstances may make a woman more likely to experience menstrual cramps:

  • She started her first period at an early age (younger than 11 years).

  • Her menstrual periods last 5 days or longer.

  • She smokes cigarettes or uses alcohol.

  • She has never been pregnant.
how to relieve menstrual pain?
  1. OTC pain relievers such as ibuprofen or naproxen used around the clock at the first sign of your period helps to reduce the severity of cramps in many women by inhibiting the release of prostaglandins.
  2. Regular exercise such as walking helps to prevent or at least reduce the severity of menstrual cramps for some women.
  3. Oral contraceptives may effectively reduce or eliminate menstrual cramps for some women; however you should consider the side effects of oral contraceptives before using them to prevent cramps.
  4. Zinc, calcium, and B vitamins obtained in food and supplements have been found to reduce cramps, bloating and other symptoms.
  5. Herbal remedies such as Viburnum prunifolium, Scutellaria spp., and Cimicifuga raemosa have an antispasmodic effect that may reduce some menstrual cramps.
  6. A warm bath filled with aromatherapy or a heating pad on your lower abdomen and back is often helpful for relieving menstrual cramping.


  1. Always take painkillers with food to prevent stomach discomfort.
  2. If you don't have a heating pad, you can make one by filling a sock (a men's tube sock works best) with rice and heating it in a microwave over for a few minutes.
  3. Talk to your physician if these tips do not help, there may be an underlying cause. Severe sudden cramps, vomiting, or fever may be a sign of a medical emergency, contact your physician immediately.
i just cant understand guys. menstrual is a MUST for a girl but to them, it is dirty, "sueh" -bad luck- i just cant understand. i mean its not like we want to have menstrual. and for those married guys. i dont see a point where u can cheat on your wife. having menstrual is already very pain.. what else if she had a baby? i mean. imagine a baby poping out down there. it hurts... after all the pain your wife gone through, you are nicely foolind with your mistress.. buahaha. good job.

menstrual is a natural thing. its not a "sueh" thing. and buying menstrual pad is normal.. why i wrote this post? i was in jusco this afternoon and i asked dad to walk to the pad section to get me a pad. he said no. its too embarrassing.. wth? its just a pad, dad. i answered. dad use i dont know what shape you want as an excuse. he knows i always have heavy flow. and i need the longest. so when i went to the pad section, this guy looked at me one kind. i dont understand what he is looking at. i m a girl i need pads... and so i went for tampons. and this pervert stared at me. argh... he said. girl.. which is the best pad? i gave him a blank stare. but i answered as it depends on how heavy is the period. after explaining whole lot of facts to him, he told me that its for his girlfriend.. *how sweet*

back pain, abdomen pain and migraine...

that is the kind of guy that i would like maybe? is not the buying pad thing... is the understanding women thing. he dont expect his girl to run out home to get pads. he volunteer himself to get them.

i guess the hardest thing for men is not studying , working or getting a million dollars... but is understanding women..
