Red Wave Blues: How To Stop Period Cramps Quickly

Period cramps can be a real pain in the… uterus! So, here are some quick tips on how to stop period cramps and survive the red moon phase a bit easily. 

Ah, period cramps. The monthly visitor that nobody wants. They can be a real pain in the… uterus! We've all been there: curled up in a ball, clutching a hot water bottle, wondering if we're ever going to feel normal again. Well, my fellow menstruating humans, I am here with some quick tips to tell you how to stop period cramps!

But Why?

First things first, let's talk about what causes cramps during periods. When you're on your period, your uterus is contracting to shed its lining. This is perfectly normal, but sometimes those contractions can get a little too intense, leading to the dreaded cramps. These cramps can range from mild discomfort to feeling like your insides are being twisted like a jalebi.

So, How Can We Stop Them?

It might be hard to try all the period cramp remedies under the sun. So, here is a short list of tips for period cramps relief:

Get Your Groove On

That's right, dance it out unless you are one of the gym jammers who love exercise! Then, you can go ahead and do some weightlifting. Moving your body can help to release endorphins, which are your body's natural painkillers. So, put on your favorite tunes and get down with your bad self! This is one of the most underrated period cramps remedies, if you ask me.

Poke It Back

Not literally! I mean you should try acupressure. It's like acupuncture, but without needles. You can try pressing on specific points on your body to help relieve pain. The point between your thumb and index finger is a common spot to target and know how to stop period cramps. You can also try placing a warm water bottle or a heating pad on your lower abdomen to help soothe the pain.

From ‘Ugh’ To ‘Ohhh!’

Orgasms release happy hormones like endorphins to ease the discomfort. Some people also find that using a massager can provide targeted stimulation to the clitoris or G-spot, which can also help alleviate cramps. Plus, getting it on in bed can distract you from the pain and make you feel good all around. So, grab your favorite Breeze massager or Groove wand, and don’t worry about them getting messy- they’re waterproof and easy to clean!

Channel Your Inner Yogi

Meditation can be a powerful tool for pain management. Taking a few minutes to focus on your breath and quiet your mind can help you to feel more relaxed and centered. Doing yoga can be a great way to stretch out your muscles and relieve tension. Plus, it's a great excuse to wear stretchy pants all day and put your self-care products like scented candles to good use! That’s a win-win in my books.

Treat Yo’self

Sure, you can reach for the typical painkillers, but why not try some tasty treats instead? We all know this one but indulging in a little bit of dark chocolate can actually help to reduce period cramps. The magnesium in chocolate can help to relax your muscles and ease the pain. Bananas are full of potassium, which can help ease muscle cramps. And if you're feeling brave, try some spicy food! Capsaicin, the compound that makes things spicy, has been shown to help reduce inflammation and pain. Spices like ginger and cinnamon have anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce pain and discomfort. Indian food FTW, I say!

Your Brain, Your Rules

Last but not least, let's talk about mindset. It may sound cheesy, but your mental state can have a big impact on your physical well-being. If all else fails and you still don’t know how to reduce period cramps, remind yourself that this too shall pass. Period cramps may be annoying, but they're a normal part of life for many people. So, take a deep breath, grab some chocolate, and know that you'll get through this just fine.

But with a little experimentation, you'll find the perfect combination of techniques to help you conquer those cramps once and for all!
