Is It Permissible To Take Body-enhancing Drugs During Menstruation?
Hello doctor, good night. I want to ask if it’s okay to take body enhancing medicine while you’re menstruating?? Thank you.
Hello good night Evie
The ideal height is certainly coveted by everyone. Basically bones will stop growing at the age of 18-21 years (different for each person). After passing that age the part of the bone plate that is active for growth will close, making it difficult to increase height. There are many ways that people do to increase their height, including by consuming supplements that promise to increase height. However, most of the body-enhancing supplements currently available have not been medically proven to be effective. Regarding your question, whether body-enhancing supplements can be consumed during menstruation or not, the answer depends on the content of the supplement itself. Basically, the substances that should be avoided during menstruation are those that contain caffeine, contain high fat, and high sodium levels. Caffeine can trigger restlessness, sleeplessness, and mood swings, high fat can cause annoying bloating, and high sodium can cause fluid retention in the body. It is recommended that you first consult your doctor (or orthopedic doctor) if you want to increase your height when your age has passed the bone growth age limit and also to consult about the supplements you want to take.
Here's an article on how to increase height that you can read for additional information.
That's all, hope it helps. Regards, dr. Denisa
