Got Period Pain? This Is The Best Sleeping Position to Ease Menstrual Cramps.
Struggling during your time of the month? Try lying in bed like this.
Listen up, because the best position to sleep in to ease your period pain has been revealed.
Right ladies, there’s no two ways about it: getting your period once a month stinks. You get cramps, your hormonal balance changes, and you want to eat everything (although, to be honest, we want to do that all the time anyway).
That’s why you’ll wanna know the best sleeping position for easing your pain.
According to gynecologist, Dr Lisa Lindley, who spoke to Glamour, “ Sleeping in the fetal position takes pressure off the abdominal muscles”, as well as allows for less leakages due to your legs being together.
Sleeping on your front is the worst position because this puts pressure on your ab muscles, causing more blood to come out than necessary.
So the moral of this story? If you want a better night’s sleep during your time of the month, your best bet is to try and sleep on your side.
