These foods will worsen your period flow

Keep off

Heavy periods(Tinystep)

Those few days that a woman menstruates seem like a century. The symptoms seem to be like they are never ending and you just can’t wait for the whole thing to end. While exercising leads to increase in your period flow, there are also foods that do the same.

If you do not want a heavy flow, stay away from these foods:

1. Chocolate

This sweet and addictive snack has the ability to normalize many menstrual related problems. It helps with normalizing irregular periods and regulates the flow of blood during your periods. If you have scanty periods, just grab a bar and you will have your flow. However, if you don’t wish to have a heavy flow, keep off.

2. Beetroot juice

Beetroots are rich in Iron, Potassium, Vitamin C among others which are all great for your health. All the same, drinking beetroot juice during your periods will worsen the flow.

3. Jaggery

The high contents of Iron in jaggery triggers your blood flow during periods hence a heavier flow. If you are craving something sweet, remove jaggery from your list.

4. Pineapple

Unexpected, yeah? Well, pineapples increase the production of red and white blood cells which in return leads to an overall increase in blood flow. So, go slow on pineapples when you are on your periods.

Besides foods, other things that increase you period flow include; weight fluctuations, stress, and birth control methods.

All in all, if you have been receiving scanty periods and would love to get a heavier flow, just eat more of these foods.
