Itâ€™s an unfortunate side effect of being a woman, but every month we get a visitor that brings its own unpleasant baggage.Â
But one of the worst things you can expect with your monthly friend is cramps.
We have all experienced them in one form or another and regardless of their severity, they are never fun.
But it turns out a main cause of pain might be the wrong diet or lack of nutritionâ€¦
So it is important to pay attention to what you consume.
Reduce your salt, sugar and caffeine intake during the week before your period to prevent cramps or reduce their severity and increase your intake of calcium-rich foods such as milk, yogurt or leafy vegetables.
This is just a little change that could give us girls, the relief we have been looking for!
