Ways to improve light periods

To improve light periods, you can do the following

1. Eat beetroot

Beetroot is rich in iron, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, manganese, folic acid, and fibre. It increases haemoglobin levels which helps to improve blood circulation and blood flow during menstruation, making your periods heavier, says Dr Gomes.

2. Have chocolate

Chocolates help to satisfy sweet tooth for sure. They also help to increase blood flow during periods, so eat dark chocolates that are rich in vitamins and minerals such as iron, copper, protein and calcium.

3. Include sesame seeds in diet

Sesame seeds are packed with iron, phosphorus, magnesium, copper and manganese, which help to regulate blood flow during periods.

4. Exercise

You might not be up for it, but exercising during periods helps to maintain healthy body weight and boost menstrual flow. If you are not a fan of gymming, try yoga. It helps with the menstrual flow and also mood swings that fluctuate when you are down.

5. Stay hydrated

The expert says that a woman’s menstrual flow is not just about blood, but also other fluids where the liquid fraction is an estimated 90 percent water. Thicker blood is not easy to flow smoothly, so it is important to stay hydrated to increase bleeding during periods.

If young women or teenagers have light periods and mild cramps, that’s because the hormone system has not matured, says the expert. However, women in their late 30s or in their 40s also experience shorter and lighter periods. It is a natural transition as they near perimenopause, which is the transitional period before the actual menopause. So, you don’t have to worry much about light periods.
