Handling Menstrual Pain - Effect of Yoga

Period pain happens to everyone. It occurs when the egg doesn’t get fertilized after ovulation, so the lining of the uterus starts to produce hormone-like substances called prostaglandins that cause contractions in your womb to shed the old lining. 

Back pain, headache, bloating, vomiting and nausea, loose stools, and overall weakness are additional symptoms  that sometimes accompany menstrual cramps. 

Yoga has been proved to be one of the most effective methods of dealing with unpleasant menstrual sensations. According to a study, women doing regular yoga had less severe menstrual cramps than those who didn’t.
