Heavy Period: How to Make Your Period Lighter - Page 2

Here are some more tips:

- Keep track of the number of sanitary napkins or tampons you use daily to report to your doctor.

- Transition to a low-fat, high-fiber diet.

- Lower your intake of caffeine.

- Avoid aspirin because it can interfere with blood clotting (use ibuprofen instead).

- Limit salt and sugar to cut back on bloating.

Exciting and promising research is underway on endothelins, natural proteins in our bodies that constrict blood vessels and can help to control bleeding. It turns out, women who tend to have heavy periods have a low amount of endothelins. If prescription drugs can be developed to adjust the amount of endothelins in the body, there may be some relief in our future!
