According to Mayo clinic, during the menstrual period, women should take extra care of their bodies to ensure they remain healthy and comfortable. Here are some things that women should do during their menstrual period as revealed by experts.
Douching involves cleaning the vágina using water or other solutions. However, during menstruation, douching can cause the blood to flow back into the uterus, leading to an increased risk of infection. Also, scented products like perfumes, soaps, and tampons can cause irritation to the váginal area. Therefore, it is important to avoid using scented products during menstruation.
While exercise is important for overall health, strenuous exercise can cause discomfort and cramping during menstruation. It is best to opt for low-impact exercises like yoga or walking during the menstrual period.
Wearing tight clothing can cause discomfort and increase the risk of infection during menstruation. It is best to wear loose-fitting clothes to allow for airflow and reduce irritation.
By avoiding these activities during menstruation, women can reduce their risk of infection, discomfort, and other health problems. It is important to listen to your body and take care of yourself during this time.
