As a woman, you will be all too familiar with the monthly issue of having to plan your outfits; deal with cramps and often high levels of pain and discomfort; and generally a heightened sensitivity to other people for four to five days a month (every month) for a number of years when you are on your period.
If you have the luxury of working from home, or else not having to work at all, then managing your period is considerably easier, but if you are more like the majority of people across the length and breadth of this country and beyond, it can often be a massive hassle.
So, with this in mind, continue reading to learn how to manage your time of the month during a busy time of the month.
Keep Your Social Diary As Empty As Possible
Obviously, especially if you have children, it can often be nearly impossible to ban any form of socialization and interaction entirely (no matter how much you would like to); but having said that, keeping your social diary as free as possible just for those few days is always a good idea.
This way, you can concentrate on your obligations and when you do have a little bit of time to yourself, you can spend it relaxing, indulging in a delicious treat meal, or else sitting in your comfiest jogging bottoms and chilling out in front of the television.
Consider Delaying Your Period
If you are not currently on a form of contraception which allows you to either have only one or two periods a year, or else stops your periods entirely, then one fantastic option which you may not be aware of is that of a period delay tablet.
Period delay tablets are a fantastic idea if you have an incredibly busy week full of business meetings and travel; or conversely you are planning on booking a few days’ vacation abroad or across state and want to feel comfortable and relaxed. If you do decide to try period delay tablets, ensure to purchase them from a reputable and established supplier, such as chemistclick.co.uk.
Always Pack Extra Clothes
You will know what it is like when, no matter how much of an organized and indeed regular, person you are, your period unexpectedly arrives and you need a change of clothes or at the very least, a change in underwear.
To eliminate any embarrassment and undue stress, both of which you certainly do not need having just come on your period, always ensure there is a spare pair of trousers and underwear in your car or work bag that you can easily grab if you ever need to.
Use A Combination Of Sanitary Products
Finally, if you are someone who has either recently started to, or else has always, experienced a heavier than average monthly flow, then you should consider combining sanitary products.
Both sanitary towels and tampons have both their own advantages and disadvantages, but, especially at night, combining the two will ensure that there should not be any annoying leakages while you are sleeping.
