Why do you have cramps during your period?


Many women suffer from cramps before or during their periods. The reason behind these cramps are prostaglandins, chemicals a female's body produces to for uterine contraction. The contracting muscles push the blood out through the vagina during the periods.

They can be mild to extremely painful, and they usually last for a few days. Some females suffer from extreme pain including:-

· those who are younger when their periods start
· those who have longer periods or heavier blood flow
· those who smoke
