Drink Energy Drinks During Menstruation?
Good evening, I would like to ask, is it okay to consume extra milk during menstruation? R nAnd please state the restrictions on menstruation.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In fact, as long as you do not experience any complaints after consuming these drink products during menstruation, there is no absolute prohibition to consume them. However, you need to note that excessive consumption of carbonated drinks during menstruation (including the beverage products you mentioned) has the potential to increase uterine muscle contractions in removing menstrual blood. This very intense contraction can cause the blood vessels that are supposed to supply the uterine wall with oxygen and nutrients to become pinched. As a result, the uterine cells will experience hypoxia (lack of oxygen), and pain occurs due to excessive release of prostaglandins into the bloodstream. This extremely intense menstrual pain can certainly be very disturbing and reduce the productivity of the sufferer in daily activities. In some sensitive people, consumption of beverage products as you mentioned can also trigger an increase in stomach acid. This condition can trigger pain, stinging, tightness, nausea, lumps, and other uncomfortable sensations, especially around the chest and gut. For the various reasons above, you should not consume any food or drink excessively, especially during menstruation.
In addition, you also need to consider the following when you are menstruating:
Avoid alcohol consumption
Increase consumption of foods rich in antioxidants and foods rich in fiber, for example vegetables, fruit, nuts, whole grains
Reduce consumption of caffeine, such as tea, coffee, chocolate, mint
Drink lots of warm water
Eat a balanced and healthy diet
Limit sexual intercourse that involves penile-to-vaginal penetration; besides being able to cause pain, this procedure is also more at risk of causing transmission of infection
Don't stress too much
Change pads regularly at least every 4 hours
Shower diligently and change clothes at least 2 times a day
Avoid taking drugs carelessly without a prescription from a doctor
That's all for our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with a gynecologist.
