Yesterday I was watching Padman movie with my daughter, at first I was not comfortable watching this movie with her, because it about Menstruation, but then I gave it a second thought, she is 11 years and going to be 12 years soon, so she must have a knowledge about it, so that she will be little comfort when her menstrual cycle begins. So when we both were watching, I gave her all the information about it, how it started, how she had to take care of herself, how to use a pad and she was listening to it very carefully. I feel being a mother it’s my duty to let her be aware of everything which she has to face in life, and I suggest every mom that we all should take care of our daughter and let them know about menstruation before, Because the first cycle can be very upsetting as they are not aware of it all, and girls have to face problem like spot on skirt in school, so if they are aware of menstrual before they won’t get upset or sad and can inform they teacher at school and Mom at home.
As we all know that we should be quite careful during those days and the first common symptoms which a girl feel before her first period are
1. Cramps ( pain in your belly or lower back)
2. Bloating ( when your belly feels puffy)
3. Breakouts ( getting pimples)
4. Sore Breasts
5. Feeling Tired
6. Mood SWings ( when her emotions change quickly or you feel sad, angry or anxious )
The foods which should be avoided during Menstrual periods are High fats food, Carbonated drinks, processed foods, fried foods, legume, Refined grains…
And the food which is healthy for us during our Menstrual period is Kale, Oranges, Banana, Watermelon, Broccoli, Dark chocolate, Tea.
These are the few points which should be taken care of during Menstrual Period . And most important emotional support to her during those time
