We as women go through a lot of changes in our bodies, and menstrual is also one of them. Prior to getting the period, we get little pain in the breast, angriness, swings in mood, and tentative pain in the lower abdomen are common. Once you get a period all this pain will go, no need to worry. During the period some may suffer from menstrual cramps, Dysmenorrhea and get headaches, stomach ache, leg pain, and back pain. It is completely depending on the nature of the body type. Whatever pain we get on the first day of our period will be heavy pain.
On the first day, we will get pain and on the second day, we will be tired due to heavy flow. We will be worried even if we don’t get our periods on a regular basis and even we worry if we get it also by thinking of pain. I used to get a heavy stomach ache during my first day of menstrual. I used to take painkiller tablets or a few tablets which is available in the market after consulting Doctor, but I was not happy even with tablets, and long-term tablet consumption for period regularization and for pain-killing is not advisable.
