Teens and Period Pain

Teens and Period Pain

For many teenagers, the onset of menstruation is a significant and often confusing milestone. It brings with it a slew of physical and emotional changes, one of the most common being period pain, also known as dysmenorrhea. In this blog, we'll dive into what period pain is and explore why it happens, helping you better understand your body and manage this discomfort more effectively, and what we have to help you through this journey!  

Period pain is the discomfort or pain that many teenage girls and women experience just before or during their menstrual period. It can range from mild discomfort to severe pain, and its intensity varies from person to person. While some lucky individuals may not experience any discomfort at all, others might find themselves dealing with significant pain and cramps. 

Period pain primarily occurs due to the contraction of the uterine muscles (the muscles of the uterus or womb). These contractions help shed the uterine lining during menstruation, allowing it to be expelled from the body. When the uterus contracts, it can temporarily cut off the blood supply to the uterine muscle, resulting in pain and discomfort. 

Here at MyCup we are all about saving money, sustainability and self care. Below are our Teen Bundles, designed to do just that! And they are all available on our website for purchase!
