As a result, we can see many women face issues related to menstruation like irregular periods, pain during periods, scanty periods, and even difficulty in conceiving naturally.

Here are the top 3 tips to maintain your reproductive health:

1. Diet to follow during menstruation:

Ayurveda advises including local rice, milk, ghee, barley soup, light & easily digestible meals. It is essential to add meals that ignite the digestive fire, improve digestion, and help to balance the Vata dosha. 

Eating meals in regular time in proper quantities helps to maintain digestion and improve health. On the other hand, avoiding spicy, heavy, oily, fast food, and junk items are advised. Such food items can diminish the digestive fire and lead to indigestion. 

2. Lifestyle during menstruation:

During menstruation, Vata dosha can get vitiated due to heavy exercise, overtalking, excessive walking, loud laughing, crying, and exertion. So it is better to rest and avoid such activities to avoid the symptoms that could happen due to the aggravation of Vata doshas like pain, scanty periods, or irregular periods. 

Restore your energy with rest, mild stretching, proper hydration, and warm meals like soup.

Apart from a healthy diet & lifestyle, stay away from mental stress. Excessive mental stress can lead to hormonal imbalance, which can cause irregular periods, PCOS, and difficulty with conception. So, Ayurveda suggests concentrating on good things in your life and staying away from stressful situations, especially during menstruation.
