7 common mistakes women make during their period
4. Taking painkillers after the cramps have started
Studies have shown that taking painkillers after the cramps have started is less effective in managing menstrual cramps.
5. Not taking enough iron
Blood loss can easily lead to an iron deficiency and failing to consume iron-rich foods can lead to lethargy and when ignored for long, even anaemia.
Ensure to replenish supply by eating lots of iron rich foods such as red meat, eggs, beans, and dark leafy greens like spinach.
