Every woman's body is and works differently. The same goes for menstruation, we will never find two menstrual cycles that run the same way. While some periods go unnoticed and without any complications, other women must deal with severe pain which sometimes hinders the day-to-day.
Is it possible to relieve menstrual pain without taking any drugs?
Although it may be hard to believe, the practice of gentle physical activity helps to reduce these annoying pains during the period. For instance, you could try making a small yoga routine to stretch the muscles and perhaps help relieve some pain.
Are you interested? Let's go for it.
5 effective yoga positions to effectively minimize menstrual cramps.
You only need 10 minutes to do this routine at home. It is in this way that you will be able to connect with yourself, get enough energy and relieve these annoying pains.
1. Downward dog
This is one of the basic poses in yoga. There are multiple benefits that we can get by doing this pose. Not only do you strengthen and stretch your body, but you can also bring calm to your mind. This posture allows us to stretch the lower back, helping to soothe the pain there.
2. The child pose
The child's pose is characterized by being in a resting position, so it would be very convenient to perform it after the downward dog pose. This pose is ideal to relax the lower back, which is one of the areas that suffer the most during menstruation.
3. Reclined goddess
The reclined goddess pose is ideal to go to bed completely calm and relaxed. This posture can relieve the pelvic area by opening the groin and thus stimulating the ovaries.
The first few days, you may feel some discomfort, but take it easy. Gradually, you will find it much more comfortable to do this type of pose.
4. The camel pose:
The camel can be said to be one of the most “complex” postures, but what is true is that it is effective to relieve pain in the lower abdomen, in addition to considerably stretch the pelvis. In addition to this, it is quite known for being a great anxiety reliever.
5. The bow:
To make the bow, we must make a total arc with our bodies. Since in this pose, we stretch the abdomen, we can reduce the pain in this area. This pose can stimulate the reproductive organs and strengthen your back.
We hope that these yoga postures can bring some relief to your menstrual pain. Remember to always maintain proper intimate hygiene and if you wish you can make use of our reusable pads and menstrual panties during your period.
