Hormonal changes before and during menstruation can indeed trigger a variety of complaints, including headaches, chills (fever), weakness, dizziness, nausea, tightening of the breasts, body aches and pains, headaches, decreased appetite, mood swings , etc. In most cases, this condition is not dangerous and will get better by itself after the end of menstruation without requiring special treatment.
You need to be vigilant, when a series of complaints arise with great intensity, or to the point that it causes you to not be able to do even light activities. If this condition is what you are experiencing, immediately consult a doctor. Usually, the doctor will conduct an in-depth interview regarding your menstrual history, your general health condition, your usual activities, and a history of other diseases that you have suffered. Not only that, a thorough physical examination or accompanied by several supporting tests, such as blood tests or ultrasound, will also be performed by doctors to determine the best treatment. This examination is important to do to rule out the possibility of a dangerous disease that can trigger your complaint, for example viral or bacterial infections, pelvic inflammation, endometriosis, migraines, psychosomatic disorders, malignancy, and so on.
As an initial treatment, you can first do the following steps:
Take paracetamol first to reduce headaches and fever. Get more and regular rest. Don't do activities too tired. Eating with discipline Regular exercise once every 1 to 2 days. Avoid too heavy psychological stress.
