Beside the nature of the period it self, how can once a month ruin a woman’s day there are other factors that contribute to that experience that can sometimes be really frustrating. Daily stress, over exercising or too little exercising consumption of pills filled with chemicals such as birth control pills and several different foods that do not agree with the pain and the cramps. There are of course things we can do to change all that. Relax, exercise at a normal rate, try not to consume all those pills,, and of course start eating right in order to save yourself from having to take that trip to the gynecologist.
