Is it bad to drink when you're on your period?
Yesterday evening when I was having a drink my mother told me that I shouldn’t have alcohol on my period. I am 22 years old female. I am confused why she said so. Is it bad to drink alcohol on a period? If yes then please let me know in the comments. Will drinking on period cause chronic health issues in long run?
@uahna Hello, alcohol affects women differently but alcohol on period can lead to irregular periods Alcohol can raise the estrogen and testosterone levels in the body. This can alter your menstrual cycle leading to unexpected and even missed periods. And we know that's totally annoying. It can also increase cramps and pain, intensify PMS symptoms, alcohol during periods can also lower magnesium in the body. You can avoid alcohol and drink Drink tea (with less caffeine), lots of water, and ginger water. Thanks!
