The First Day Sometimes Is The Worst Day

You may become bloated.  Then there's the onset of irritability.  You begin to feel cramps in your abdomen, your lower back, your thighs and your legs.  Your body is telling you...it's that Time Of The Month! again.


Why does it seem like the first day is the worst day?  Is your flow most heavy on the first day of your period?  Are most cranky on the first day of your TOTM!?  Do you have experience cravings on the first day of your cycle?


Here are a few things you can do to make the first day of your TOTM! less painful, less irritable, less bloated, and less crampy.


  • Be sure to stay hydrated.  Drink lots of water.
  • Eat 2 bananas a day to help with the bloating, irritability and cramps.
  • Drink Green Tea
  • Use warm compresses to ease lower abdominal cramps, back cramps, and leg cramps.

Until your next period...

"May every TOTM! be a So Happy one!"
