Dry Throat After Menstruation?
After my period is over, I feel dry throat and continuous thirst, but after I drink a lot, it doesn’t affect me, I’m still thirsty, I even wake up at night because I feel thirsty and I also have a cold, the mucus is a bit thick. Why is that, huh? And how to solve it? Oia, I’m still in high school to be exact.

Hormonal changes, namely decreased levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone, such as those found when you are menstruating and some time afterward can indeed make the body feel uncomfortable, such as fever, chills, easily thirsty, easily tired, mood swings, difficulty sleeping, and so on. This complaint is similar to that experienced by women later when approaching menopause. If there are no other complications, the complaints as you are experiencing will likely improve by itself 3 to 7 days after menstruation.
However, complaints can occur continuously, or are accompanied by other complaints, namely dry throat and nasal congestion, then this may also be related to:
Allergic rhinitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities) Non-allergic rhinitis, eg due to viral or bacterial infection Sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities) Tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the tonsils and throat) Other viral or bacterial infections Bronchitis (inflammation of the airways leading to the lungs) Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid) ) Diabetes, etc. In the meantime, if the complaint persists for less than 3 days, you should try the following initial treatment:
Drink lots of water, especially warm water, you can also add honey, lemon, or ginger Meanwhile, avoid caffeine, spicy and oily foods Don't smoke Don't scream too often Avoid cold, dust, animal dander, flower pollen Don't pick at colds excessive nose Eat more foods rich in vitamin C, such as guava, lemon, sprouts Use a mask when in a dirty and polluted environment Regular exercise Hope it helps ya..
