Menstruation, 6 Foods You Should Eat More During Your Period To Avoid Complications.

Menstruation or the period is normal vaginal bleeding that a woman has as part of her monthly cycle. Every month, your body gets ready for pregnancy. If there is no pregnancy, the lining of the uterus or womb comes off. The blood in the menstrual blood comes from inside the uterus and is also made of blood.

Abdominal cramps.



Mood swings.

You should always drink a lot of water, and this is even more important during your period. Staying hydrated can help you avoid dehydration headaches, which are a common symptom of menstruation.

People who drink a lot of water can also stop their bodies from retaining water and becoming bloated, which makes them look bigger.
