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.
For more TOTM! tips listen to TOTM! Tea Talk radio show on Blogtalk radio Sundays at 5pm EST and Wednesdays at 7pm EST 

Until your next period...

The Day YOU No Longer Have a TOTM!

When did you get your first TOTM!?  Were you 10? 12? 14?  For argument's sake we'll say 12.  And studies show on average a woman will have her last menstrual cycle usually around the age of 51.  Odd number right?  Why not 50? 

So on average a woman can have a monthly cycle for say.....40 years...  So for 40 years of a woman's life, on average, every month she can expect to bleed for 3-7 days.  For some women that will be half their lives.  How do YOU prepare for when YOUR TOTM! stops?  Will you miss it?  

Join in on the conversation with Val Carey of TOTM! Tea Talk today Sunday October 9, 2011 5pm EST as she discusses TOTM! In The Later Years.  YOU can also call in YOUR thoughts and questions to 805-669-0237 at 5pm EST Sundays.


If YOU no longer have a monthly period, did YOU know that YOU were entering menopause?  And how did YOU know?

Feel free to share YOUR experiences with us!
