Do you have heavy periods? Do they make your life miserable? If yes, you are definitely not alone. Most women have to deal with heavy periods at some point in their lives. It is considered as one of the most common gynecological problems among women. Heavy periods can make you feel tired, exhausted and irritable all the time.

The good news is that there are some lifestyle changes that can help you manage heavy periods and keep them from making your life miserable. Here are some helpful tips for managing heavy periods:

  • Exercise regularly

Exercise is one of the best ways to manage your period pain because it releases endorphins, which make you feel happier and less stressed. It also increases blood flow, which helps with cramping. Regular exercise also prevents excessive weight gain which is another cause of heavy bleeding during periods. Try to work out for at least 30 minutes three times per week during your period to reduce cr,amps and bloating.

  • Eat healthy foods

Eating healthy foods can be difficult when dealing with period pain, but it’s important to eat a balanced diet so that your body receives all the nutrients it needs throughout the month. A diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables can help relieve cramping and bloating by lowering inflammation in the body and providing nutrients that support healthy menstrual cycles.

  • Stay hydrated

Water is essential for keeping your body functioning properly during menstruation — especially if you’re experiencing cramping or bloating. Stay hydrated by drinking eight glasses of water every day during your period; this will help improve circulation

  • Limit salty foods

High-sodium diets increase fluid retention which causes bloating and swelling during menstruation. This means that you need to avoid salty foods such as pizza, chips and other junk food items during this time period.
