8 Debunked Myths About Periods You Shouldn’t Believe In

There are a lot of myths about periods. Even though they may seem harmless, improper understanding of periods and reproductive health can lead to unpredictable consequences. That’s why you need to know where the truth is and where is the lie. In this article, we have gathered eight debunked myths about periods you shouldn’t believe in. 


1. PMS is not real 

Many people think that premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is only an excuse to justify mood swings before periods. But the reality is that PMS can cause severe symptoms in some women. The most common of them are:

- bloating

- pelvic pain

- breast tenderness

- acne

- food cravings

- constipation

- diarrhea

- headaches

- fatigue

- irritability

- poor sleep

- anxiety

- depression

- sadness

- mood swings


Additionally, some women can have low or high blood pressure, dizziness, and other symptoms. 


2. Periods are not painful

Pain during periods, also known as dysmenorrhea, is a quite common issue for many women of childbearing age. In most cases, the pain is not severe and lasts for a day or two. However, some women experience severe pain during periods that interfere with normal activities. Additionally, this pain may not respond to pain medication and home remedies. The point is that this pain can be caused by certain underlying conditions (like endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine fibroids, etc.) that may require treatment. 


3. You can’t take a bath during periods

Many people believe that you can get infected through the water. This is not true since there is no open wound that lets the infection into your bloodstream. If you don’t take a bath during periods because of this myth, you should know that a warm bath can actually ease your periods since warm water can relax your muscles. 


4. Missed periods always mean pregnancy

Even though missed periods are considered the most common symptoms of pregnancy. There are many other factors that can make your periods late. For example, stress, weight loss, excessive exercising, and obesity can affect your menstrual cycle. Additionally, some health issues like thyroid dysfunction, polycystic ovarian syndrome, and hormonal imbalance can also make your periods disappear. 


5. You can’t have sex during periods

There is a common misconception that you can’t have sex during periods. But if both of you are okay with having sex during periods, there is no reason to avoid it. In order not to spoil shits, you can take a shower and lay a towel on the bed before sex. You should also know that sex (especially orgasm) during periods can ease the pain since it boosts the production of endorphins. These chemicals can improve your mood and act like pain medication. 


6. Menstrual cycle lasts for 28 days

Indeed, the average length of the menstrual cycle is 28 days but many women can have shorter or longer cycles. For example, periods that occur in 24 or 34 days can be deemed normal. However, if your menstrual cycle has become too short or long, it is better to make an appointment with your gynecologist since there are a lot of conditions that can affect your menstrual cycle. 


7. You can’t get pregnant during periods

Many people believe that it is impossible to get pregnant during periods. But the truth is that there are a lot of women who have conceived exactly during menstruation. You should know that the sperm can remain active for up to 5 days in the female reproductive system. If you have early ovulation, fertilization can occur. 


8. It is better to stay in bed during menstruation 

If you have severe periods and the pain doesn’t let you work or study normally, it is better to stay in bed. But if you feel mild pain and can be active, there is no reason to lay in bed. Additionally, mild physical activity can even make you feel better since it also increases the production of endorphins. You can walk, run, practice yoga, or exercise in any way. However, it is better to avoid excessive exercising and power training.
