A Less Painful Day is a Beautiful Day

Period Day 3

It was much more less painful than day 2. I had cramps and lower back pain in the morning with pain level of 3-4/10. And the rest of the day I only had lower back pain with pain level of 1/10, thanks to ibuprofen , papaya, and raspberry leaf tea! The bleeding was still heavy, but less heavy compared to yesterday.

I had a good night sleep. Actually I had a long sleep, I slept almost for 9 hours πŸ˜† It was a payback for 2 days of lack of sleep.


Overall it was a less painful day and a good day for recovery, for that… I’m very grateful! πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ

Pre-Menstrual Pain

Today is day -3 of my next expected period. 

I felt light cramps and back pain since yesterday (1-2/10). I had a really hard day yesterday, it was a very emotional day. I cried all day. The cramps and back pain started after I heard a terrible news (sorry I can’t share about it…). It’s amazing how stress can affect my body that fast.

This morning I feel better emotionally but the pain still there. I took 1 pill of ibuprofen before I went to the vet to get my cat checked but it seemed doesn’t work. I had to toughen up all day. I felt the pain until in the afternoon. Why ibuprofen? Why don’t you work today?! πŸ˜– I think I should took the liquid form ibuprofen instead, somehow I think it works better than the pills.

The pain lessen after I drank a cup of raspberry leaf tea. Raspberry leaf tea help to strengthen uterus and ease menstrual discomfort. I like Yogi brand. I also drink some other variations of their teas.

I also drink Yogi’s Women’s Moon Cycle to relief menstrual pain/discomfort.

I’m running out my Ayurvedic medicine for this month and I have been sloppy with my diet (again!) these last 2 weeks, I’m a bit nervous about the pain level for the next period. It sucks that I have think about the next painful period every time πŸ˜–

I need to pray for less pain πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ
