A few days prior to their period, some women may notice slight weight gain or edema in the legs.
It feels uncomfortable and may cause you discomfort at home or at work. Edema is caused by PMS-related water retention that happens in your body right before the arrival of your period due to hormonal fluctuations.
These simple tips should ease your period-related edema.
Drink more water daily, but not before you sleep
Avoid salty products
No fatty food
No junk food
Eat more fiber that is found in fruits and cereals
Eat more protein
Water retention can also be caused by other illnesses, such as heart or kidney diseases, as well as low physical activity and meds.
Please don’t hesitate to contact your healthcare provider as soon as you notice any worrying signs of edema.
