Keep Your Monthly Cycle Tracking And Natural Precaution At the Time Of Menstrual Cramp

Monthly cycle brings changes in Hormone levels and due to this whole range of body changes which
includes following changes :

  •  Difference in Vaginal Discharge
  • Body Temperature increase and decreases
  • Stomach Crams
  • Pain
  • Changes in Mood
To keep symptoms like pain and cramps in charge it s better to chart your menstrual cycle and period symptoms on a monthly cycle calender or period calender. This will help you when you go to doctor and he/she ask your date of last period- so you will be prepared to answer if you will keep in writing.

 It is very simple to keep track of your period symptom on a monthly cycle calender but all you need to remember. You need to write this first day of your period and not only period  but also Cramps, Mood changes, Vaginal discharge, unexpected pain and another unusual changes.
Also keep in mind some question while tracking your period which may your doctor ask :

How long is your Period?
So mark down the days of your period on a calendar. The first day of your period is also 'Day One' of your monthly cycle. If you begin to chart your cycle each month, you'll see a pattern. A normal cycle is 21 to 35 days.

How heavy or light is your flow?
If you've been having periods for a while, you know what your flow looks like. So keep track of light or heavy bleeding and any changes in colour and texture, such as blood clots. Tell your doctor if you notice anything unusual about the length of your period, amount of flow or the way it looks.

Other Symptoms
Note down any unusual vaginal secretions that occur during the month. You may notice a thicker or stickier discharge at mid-cycle – this is normal and means you’re ovulating. Other changes that give you and your doctor important information include:
  • Variations in your period length
  • Timing or amount of menstrual blood, such as spotting between periods
  • Irregular periods
  • Any change in vaginal secretions such as color and amount, particularly if it's itchy or smelly
  • Any pelvic pain, whether or not it’s linked to your period
  • Depression, mood swings and irritability. 
 If any symptoms don’t seem right, call your family doctor right away.

Natural Precaution To Be Taken If  You Or Your Daughter Is Facing Menstrual Cramp

Heat : Use hot water bottle or a heating pad on the abdomen.According to various experts, heat increases blood flow and circulation to the uterus and may help lessen the impact of the naturally occurring chemicals that cause the cramps.
Cold: Remember each person is different. While for some teens heat eases the pain, for some it aggravates menstrual cramps. Some teens find that applying cold instead of heat eases cramps. Try putting an ice pack on the abdomen for 15 to 20 minutes. The cold constricts blood vessels, which can bring relief.
Activity: Exercise releases endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers, and will help take your daughter’s mind off the cramps. Keep her active and encourage her to follow the normal routine.
Drinks & Diet: Fresh pineapple juice contains bromelain—an enzyme that relaxes muscles; ginger tea is a soothing, healthy choice for pain relief; and bananas have also been known to help give cramps the boot.
