Periods are often accompanied by bothersome symptoms. Their origin? The influence of hormones on the body at different stages of the menstrual cycle. Blues, bloating, cramps… These symptoms, whether physical or psychological, are linked to what is called “premenstrual syndrome”.
If they persist beyond the menstrual period, do not hesitate to talk about it with your doctor or your gynecologist.
Most comfortable sanitary pads are rectangles of absorbent material that attach to the inside of a girl’s underwear and catch menstrual blood. They’re sometimes also called sanitary pads or sanitary napkins. Some pads have extra material on the sides.
Cramps, nausea and diarrhea during menstruation
Cramps and pain in the lower back and stomach are called dysmenorrhea. These periods’ crumps are due to the increased production of prostaglandins by the lining of the uterus, the endometrium. In the absence of fertilization, that is to say of meeting between an ovum and a spermatozoid, the prostaglandins push the uterine muscle to contract to evacuate the surplus of mucous membrane and the blood: these are the rules.
These prostaglandins are released by the blood and can therefore arrive in other parts of the body. They can therefore also be responsible for symptoms such as diarrhea and nausea.
Migraines, Sleep and Mood Disorders
Prostaglandins released by the blood can also cause headaches. In addition, changes in estrogen levels cause a whole host of changes and variations in the action of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. These neurotransmitters disturbed by the estrogen imbalance can then be responsible for many symptoms: difficulty finding sleep, irritability, depression and even migraines.
Acne, just before menstruation
Acne is caused by high activity of the sebaceous glands (glands located in the epidermis of the skin). This hormonal acne occurs during the period of ovulation that is to say during the week preceding the period. As a result, the pores of the skin become clogged due to excess sebum (a kind of greasy film) produced by the sebaceous glands. This phenomenon leads to the appearance of acne on the chin, nose, scalp, upper chest, etc.
You may also not experience any symptoms during your period. One body is not the other and neither are the symptoms experienced. Some women will not feel any symptoms while others will experience a real ordeal. Do not hesitate to consult your doctor or gynecologist to talk about it.
Fatigue in case of heavy periods
The periods consist of a loss of mucous membrane, but also of blood. When a woman has a heavy period, the levels of red blood cells and iron in her body drop.
Decreasing red blood cells mean lower oxygen supply. What to feel weak and tired.
Sweating during menstruation
In some women, sweating during menstruation tends to increase. This sensation is due to the influence of hormones on the sweat glands.
It is therefore possible to have heatstroke, whether during the day or at night. Buy online Embrace Sanitary Pads!
