“And then, to cap things off, I got wicked cramps and my period started… I guess my body decided that since I already felt crappy, why not throw some nice uterus-agony on top of everything?”
I am one of those women who have periods and suffer like hell. I feel a lot of pain, nausea and I bleed half of my body out. It has been like this for me since my first period when I was twelve and it hasn’t changed. My period is long and painful, very painful.
“How do you survive it every single month”, you might ask me. Well, I take a lot of medicine, and I use a sheet that heats my belly that helps to stimulate my blood circulation and eases the pain.
The medicine that I take is Bufferin Luna (バファリンルナi) and it works great for me!
And the sheet is 蒸気の温熱シート (Steam Thermal Sheet) and I don’t live without it when I’m in a lot of pain!
You can find both of them at any pharmacy and they are not that expensive, especially the sheet! I highly recommend both of them if you have the same problems that I do! And of course, chocolate, hot tea, a blanket and Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime binge-watch also help a lot! 😉
If you know any other medicine and method to ease the period’s symptoms, please tell me! Leave a comment below, ok?!
Anyway, have a great Friday and stay strong, girls!

By the way, this is my anthem when I’m on my period. LOL
I'm a Brazilian crazy cat lady, book lover and gamer who loves to write, listen to music and doesn't know how to cook! All of those plus living in Japan for the last fifteen years. :)
Welcome to my life!
