Do you get bad menstrual cramps? Usually people with a healthier diet, low in sugar don't, but it could be different for some people. And if you do get cramps that you can't sit out, how do you usually get rid of them?
I don’t, but I used to… and yes, changing my diet/lowering my body fat really helped.
While it might not be at the top of your to do list when you’ve got ‘em bad, exercise is a great remedy for menstrual cramps. You might also try applying a hot compress to the lower belly for 20 minutes or soaking in the bathtub for a bit… and yoga does wonders as well. (also, smoking a bit of cannabis usually does the trick for most of the women I know (myself included) as it relaxes the body & calms spasming muscles in the abdomen… I know it’s not for everyone, but I figured I throw it out there, lol)
Cramps suck dude, I know… I hope this helps, good luck!
