PMS Pains: 10 tricks to shorten your period

Period is a time that is considered difficult and unpleasant for all women – not an ideal time for anything really – sports, social gathering, sex life and also being active. Some of us suffer from migraines, body aches, cramps and even a bad mood. We have a few tricks to shorten this time of the month and enjoy a lighter, faster period!


Change your diet

Consume foods that are better for your body heat and increase blood flow, therefore will help shorten the period – “get it over with”. What foods are recommended? Papaya, Pumpkin, Peach, Carrot, Apricot, and Spinach. All those are rich in beta-carotene and help improve blood flow.



Drink Herbal Tea

Herbal Tea and Natural Tea Mix can help increase blood flow in the pelvis and make your blood flow faster out of your body. It also helps with side effects like back aches, stomach aches and negative mood.

Tampons are more compact and much more reliable, but they stop the blood flow and block the body from finishing the period quickly. When you’re asleep or at home, choose pads over tampons.




Orgasm helps shorten the period – simple as that. If you don’t have a sex partner, masturbation will work just fine, it’s just about washing away your body fluids.

Using birth control pills
