The menstruation period is a difficult time for most women. It is usually accompanied by abdominal pains (sometimes unendurable!), acne and skin problems and monstrous cravings. However, in a recent questionnaire, it was found that many women experience weird changes when they go through that time of the month. Here are some of these changes:
1- One of the women who took the questionnaire is a singer. She said that she takes leaves for absence when she goes through her period because her voice becomes hoarse and strange. Several researches have attested to this fact saying that hormonal changes affect the larynx leading to changes in voice in that period.
2- You get edgy. Most women get annoyed easily during their periods. Some of them even become so edgy and irritable that those around them could guess easily that they are going through their menstrual period.
3- You are better at communicating and sympathizing with others. Apparently, many women find that when they are at their periods, they get better at sensing others’ emotions and feelings. Also you get better at comforting others and sympathizing with them.
4- Your liability to injuries increase with your period. According to certain studies, your estrogen levels are low at that time of the month. This hormonal imbalance may make your joints and ligamenta stiffer than how they usually are. This means that a fall or a trip at your menstrual cycle can really damage them, but they won’t do that at other times.
5- You shop more at your menstrual cycle. A study first posited that shopping more at that time was because women wanted to satisfy their cravings at this time, so they bought comfort food, liquor…etc. However, the study found that women also buy shoes, accessories, clothing and even things they don’t usually buy at this time.
