Ladies And Guys; Help Your Girlfriends Avoid These 5 Foods During Menstruation…

Most people think everything relating to menstruation should be the concern of only ladies but that shouldn’t be the case.

Many ladies have uncomfortable symptoms during menstruation and men are supposed to be their backbone and support during this time. Some foods can lessen these symptoms, while other foods can make them worse. These symptoms include: abdominal cramps, headaches, nausea, fatigue, bloating, mood swings diarrhea.

If your lady experience any of these symptoms, adding certain foods to your diet and removing others can help you feel better.

While all foods are okay in moderation, you might want to avoid certain foods that worsen the symptoms of menstruation.

1. Sugar

It’s alright to have sugar in moderation, but eating too much of it can cause a spike in energy followed by a crash. This can worsen a ladies mood. If she tends to feel moody, depressed, or anxious during her period, watching her sugar intake can help regulate her mood.

2. Coffee

Caffeine can cause water retention and bloating. It can also exacerbate headaches. But caffeine withdrawal can cause headaches, too, so don’t cut out coffee completely if she is used to having a few cups a day. Coffee might also cause digestive issues. If your girlfriend tends to get diarrhea during her period, reducing her coffee intake could stop this from happening.

3. Alcohol

Alcohol can have a number of negative effects on the body, which can exacerbate the symptoms of one’s period. For example, alcohol can dehydrates, which can worsen headaches and cause bloating. It can also lead to digestive issues, such as diarrhea and nausea. Plus, a hangover can bring on some of the same symptoms that occur during her period, including: headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue.

4. Spicy foods

Many people find that spicy foods upset their stomachs, giving them diarrhea, stomach pain, and even nausea. If her stomach struggles to tolerate spicy foods or if you’re not used to eating them, it might be best to avoid them during her period.

5. Red meat

During menstruation, the body produces prostaglandins. These compounds help the uterus contract and get rid of the uterine lining, resulting in menstrual flow. However, high levels of prostaglandins cause cramps. Red meat may be high in iron, but it is also high in prostaglandins and should be avoided during menstruation.
