Menstruation refers to the periodic shedding and bleeding of endometrium accompanied by ovarian periodic ovulation, which is one of the signs of mature reproductive function. In a woman's life, menstruation will visit regularly like an old friend, lasting for about 20-30 years. Generally speaking, there are no special symptoms during menstruation, but when menstruation comes, there are also female friends with diarrhea. What the hell is going on?
Diarrhea and spleen deficiency are changes in physiological days
Is diarrhea embarrassing on physiological day?
Generally speaking, diarrhea occurs after menstruation, which is mostly related to the effects of physiological diurnal congestion and prostaglandin secretion.
Before the onset of menstruation, the body will secrete a large amount of prostaglandins to promote the contraction and hemostasis of uterine muscles during menstruation. During the contraction of the uterus, it may also stimulate the nearby rectum to cause diarrhea. At the same time, the prostaglandins secreted in the body can also be used as gastrointestinal muscle to accelerate peristalsis and cause diarrhea and other gastrointestinal dysfunction symptoms.
From the perspective of traditional Chinese medicine, diarrhea after menstruation is mostly related to the constitution of spleen deficiency and kidney deficiency. When the spleen is deficient, diarrhea is caused by the abnormal function of the spleen to transport water and moisture, and when the kidney is deficient, diarrhea is caused by the warmth of the spleen yang.
How to do with diarrhea during menstruation?
Many women want to know the specific solutions. The following are the two effective ways to deal with physiological diarrhea recommended by netizens based on their experience.
1. Dietary therapy: drinking with angelica and peony
Diarrhea is related to physical weakness, especially those with weak spleen and kidney. The cause of abdominal pain is liver deficiency. White peony nourishes blood and softens the liver, relieves pain, and astringes yin and sweat. It can solve the problem of abdominal pain, diarrhea and liver deficiency at one stroke, and also has the effect of regulating menstruation.
Method: put 5 grams of angelica, 3 grams of white peony and 3 grams of green tea into a cup, add 300 ml of hot water, and the taste will seep out after 10 minutes of frothing. The hot juice can relieve abdominal pain. Angelica and white peony are difficult to leach, and can also be heated on the fire. It should be noted that tea that is not drunk should not be drunk overnight.
2. Massage method: massage the abdomen at health points
Effect: rubbing the abdomen can promote intestinal peristalsis, promote human digestion, absorption and excretion, and relieve abdominal pain.
Practice: After the hands are warm, fold the palms on the abdomen, press hard, take the navel as the center, and move clockwise, the range is from small to large, which is called belly rubbing. When the two palms are in the side abdomen, the fingers of the hand under the pressure pull back, and the palm root of the other hand on the pressure push back. When rubbing the other side of the abdomen, the hand originally pressed on the top changes to the bottom, and then pulls back with the fingers, the hand originally pressed on the bottom changes to the top, and then pushes back with the palm root, so repeatedly pushing and rubbing can relieve the symptoms of diarrhea.
