When my daughter began to have period, I told her not to drink cold or eat ice-cream during those days, which could cause problems.
However, I was not so sure whether she listened to me or not. Once I asked her if she did drink some thing cold while she was having period. The following is what she said to me.
In the beginning, she did as she was told by me, not drinking something cold during those days. Later she was wondering if her friends did the same thing as she did. Her friends did not understand what she was talking about when she asked them about it. After my daughter explained furthermore, her friends got the point and said to my daughter they did not do anything differently during those days. Hearing this, my daughter drank the cold water when having period. Soon after that, she began to have stomachache. Then she realized why I told her not to drink cold during those days.
Most of my daughter’s classmates have painkiller in their schoolbags to stop the pain caused by the period.
Why do you have the pain when having period? Because body is trying so hard to take away the waste stuck in the womb where it is so cold. Blood flows better in a warm condition than in a colder condition, which we all know. It is just this hard-taking away the waste that causes the pain. Anyway, painkiller does not stop the pain, just numbs your nerve.
