Women have been so tough to face all of the challenges throughout their lives. Their faith, determination, and courage to surpass every problem they should win, prove their great worth and serve as an inspiration to the rest of the global community in modern times. They are not new in experiencing life’s painful moments, especially those who experience menstrual cramps. These painful times are indeed hard to handle, considering that they can’t do their daily tasks normally because of the struggle in tolerating this excruciating pain.
At this point, let us pay tribute to the women of our times by helping them to ease their pain with these 12 weeds proven to aid Menstrual Cramps.
The Bloody Days
Women are all subject, whether they like it or not, to experience monthly menstrual cycle which helps them ovulate eggs and remove the unused fertilized ones in their body. The cycle begins in their adolescent age (from 13 to 15 years old) and ends in their menopausal period (49 to 55 years).
However, after the ovulation takes place, the fertilized egg from the ovaries travels down the fallopian tube while the uterus develops thick lining for the egg cell, anticipating that it will be fertilized. If the egg is unfertilized, the uterus starts to prepare for flushing away the endometrium lining and the slight to severe pain in the lower abdomen follows. This pain gives a signal to the women that their monthly period is about to take place, to be followed by 2-4 days of bleeding.
What gives the painful sensation? The actual eradication of unnecessary lining inside your uterus. It induces the tiny blood vessels inside your uterus to be starved in oxygen due to contraction, thus constricting and gives an intolerable pain in your lower abdominal cavity.
