Advise her not to panic when experiencing PMS, and suggest that she does some light exercise such as walking or jogging to distract confusion mood.
- The girls have got a pain and stiffness in the abdomen and lower back while before menstrual. The pain is usually mild, and may disappear by itself. Provide always menstrual pain medication at home and give only if she said it was not able to hold her cramps anymore. Consult to your doctor as soon if her menstrual cramps didn’t disappear as well.
