Influencers are posting #periodbloat photos to show how different their bodies look and feel throughout their cycles. We are all for bringing period talk into the mainstream and social media feeds, so we love that people are doing this. We don’t love that they’re dealing with bloating and all the other issues mentioned in their posts though. A reminder: bloating and period problems are super common but they’re not necessary or unavoidable! Y’all don’t have to put up with cramps, bloating, breast tenderness, or other PMS symptoms. You can overcome period problems and achieve ideal pain-free bloat-free periods with lifestyle changes and herbs.
