Feeling Better During My Period

Make this Month a Midol® Month

If you're like most busy women, you wake up early and go to bed late. You balance work and family, make to-do lists, and juggle activities like school and housework. You really don't have time to worry about your period, do you?

Tips to relieve period symptoms

Every day of the month is a busy day, so don't slow down just because of menstrual symptoms. Whether it's cramps, headache or backache, there's no reason to live with discomfort. Don't take your period lying down. Stand up with Midol. Try these simple lifestyle changes:

Get Moving

Did you know that regular daily exercise can help improve your overall health, lift your mood and alleviate fatigue? So take a walk or dance around the house or stop by your gym - and feel better.

Stop Stressing

Work, school, chores and bills wear on everybody. But stress can make menstrual symptoms seem even worse. So write in your journal, call a friend, exercise or try meditation or relaxation exercises.

Menstrual Symptom Relief Through Relaxation

Rev Up Your Diet

You might be tempted to treat your cramps with a bag of cheese doodles, but don't go there. Your body needs complex carbohydrates to function at its best, so eat more fruits, vegetables and nutrient-rich whole grains (and try substituting whole–wheat bread for white bread). Learn what else you can do to relieve your menstrual symptoms

Pamper Yourself

If you can visit a spa, that's great. But most women don't have the time or budget for that. So turn your bathroom into a haven. Grab a favorite magazine and treat yourself to a warm bath. Bathing during your period is just fine, and it may even relax your muscles, which can help relieve cramps.

Say No to Salt & Sugar

Reducing your salt and sugar intake may help alleviate some menstrual symptoms. Salt causes bloating, so cut back to minimize the risk of water retention. Too much sugar can intensify mood swings, so satisfy your sweet tooth with fruit, not a tub of mint chocolate chip.

Get Cozy

Snuggle up with a hot water bottle or heating pad to help relax your muscles and relieve cramping. Sometimes just a few minutes of rest and a little TLC can make a big difference.

Take Two

Take two Midol Complete caplets with a glass of water to help relieve menstrual symptoms including cramping, bloating and fatigue. Unlike general pain relievers like Advil®* and Tylenol®**, Midol® Complete treats more of your menstrual symptoms. Because you deserve it!

Talk to Your Doctor

If nothing seems to help with your menstrual symptoms, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider to learn what else you can do. Find out when you should see your doctor.
