Creating relief yourself to reduce bloating during periods

Some foods are acidic and cause bloating like black coffee. Alcohol dehydrates you. As a result, the following steps may help reduce your uncomfortable bloating:

  • Processed foods contain salt
  • Focus on eating fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Reduce your alcohol and caffeine intake
  • Exercise

Medications can help

  • Birth control medications containing hormones that help regulate menstrual symptoms
  • Diuretics help reduce fluid in your body. Dr. Nangrani will assess your symptoms during your consultation.
