10 Things Women Should NOT Do On Their Periods

1. Avoid consumption of Salty Foods

Consumption of salty food might lead to worsening your period cramps and hence it is advised not to consume them. Salty food might be very appealing to you at the time of your periods but it can lead to water retention in your body during periods.

2. A big NO for wax

During periods, the pain receptors of your body are not only extra alert but also your skin becomes extra sensitive. Thus, getting a waxing session done during periods would be an extremely painful thing to do. Also, it is strongly advised not to undergo bikini wax while you are on your period.

3. Don’t have unprotected sex

Having unprotected sex while you have your periods is definitely not a good idea at all. Transmission of some viruses or even HIV increases during periods, hence its best to avoid it.

4. Avoid any painful activities or appointments

During the period, the estrogen content in your body decreases thus leaving your body susceptible to pain. The skin also becomes sensitive at this time of the month. Activities, like visiting your dentist or getting a tattoo done, should be avoided.

 7. Stay away from smoking cigarettes 

A study shows that smoking during periods can make matters worse for you. The period pain gets worse due to smoking during periods.

8. Avoid Watching Depressing Movies

Extreme sense of emotions is expressed or felt during periods or during the entire menstrual cycle. There is emotional mayhem and hence watching depressing movies would lead to more negativity or worsening of your emotional state. It might also lead to increased mood swings.

9. Don’t sleep without using a Tampon or Pad

In order to avoid any mess while sleeping, its best to use a tampon or sanitary pad. After all, who would like to wake up to a stained bed sheet?

10. White Pants is a big NO

It’s not worth the risk to ruin your favourite white pant. Your white pant might get stained during a period and thus leave a mark which is not a very pleasing sight either in public or at home. Hence, save your favourite white pant so as to wear them later with utter comfort without the fear of getting it stained.

Periods can indeed be a very painful time for anyone, hence if you avoid the above activities, your life might be a bit eased out during periods.
