On the first day of my period i have constipation and blood clotting which makes it very painful. However everything lasts for one day and then i get normal periods for 2-3 days.But those 7-8 hours of the first day are very painful. Is it normal? How should it be treated?
Your uterus is filling up with blood and pressing on your transverse colon causing your bowels to slow down and even more cramping.
Try mixing a chamomile tea enema; brew a cup of tea and add it to about a quart of water in a regular normal enema bag. Make sure water is warm not hot this will unclog your bowels and soothe your entire abdominal area.
