Consumption Of Milk During Menstruation?
hello doctor, I want to ask is it true that during menstruation it is recommended to consume milk? Is it okay to have flavored milk? And can packaged milk (sweetened condensed milk, powdered milk) be allowed? or the milk in question is pure milk such as goat’s milk and soy milk? explanation please. thank you
Good morning Gita, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. So far, there are no studies that specifically mention milk and its effect on menstruation, whether milk should be drunk, or should it be avoided. Furthermore, of course, no one has mentioned anything to do with flavored milk, powdered milk, and so on.
Even if there are benefits that can be given, it is when the milk is served warm. Because warm milk can help relieve abdominal pain that occurs during menstruation. But the focus is on the warmth, not the milk. So if there is no milk, warm tea or warm water can have the same effect.
So once again, milk consumption has nothing to do with menstruation, and there is no need to consume or avoid milk as long as you are not allergic or cannot digest the milk content. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
