20. Menstrual Cramps Causes Your Womb To Feel Like It’s Suffocating
If you’re a female who has ever dealt with menstrual cramps, you probably agree with this statement. You’ve probably found yourself lying down in the fetal position after work or even spending extra time in the bathroom during work to manage the pain associated with period cramps. Most people take the time to explain that they feel pangs during their monthly cycle because the uterine lining is making its way out of your body, so it can make room for the lining that will take over the following month – sounds great, right? Well, this isn’t the full nitty-gritty story when it comes to menstrual cramps.
One of the best ways to describe the reason for the painful cramping and, honestly, really put it into perspective when it comes to your feminine body is that your womb feels like it is suffocating during this process. Your womb needs to contract to get the uterine lining out, which takes away its natural structure. In fact, the womb can contract so tightly that oxygen can’t reach its blood vessels. In return, your brain receives a signal from your body saying it’s in pain and something is wrong. Of course, the next part of the process is for more contractions to unfold because the process increases your production of chemicals called prostaglandins. Good grief!
