Home care remedy to cure menstrual pain?
Hello, I am 18 years old girl. I do get pain a lot during my periods. Can anyone please provide home care remedy to cure menstrual pain?
@apyayee Applying heat to your abdomen and lower back may relieve pain. A 2018 review of studies found that heat therapy (usually a heat patch or pack) was as effective at treating menstrual pain as NSAIDS. It also may cause fewer side effects. However, the authors noted that more research is needed. If you don’t have a hot-water bottle or heating pad, take a warm bath or use a hot towel. Or, you can make your own heating pad:
Cut and sew together two pieces of fabric, leaving a hole at the top.
Fill with uncooked rice and sew up the hole.
Microwave for a few minutes to the desired temperature. Don’t overheat!
Let cool, if necessary. Or, wrap your homemade pad in a towel to reduce heat transfer. Reuse as necessary.
