How to stop period insomnia? Topic: How to stop period insomnia?

Question: When on my period or PMSing, I get insomnia, pretty badly actually. I'm not sure if it's because I get really bad cramps and can't sleep or what. It's horrible because I'm not tired at all at night but during the day I get really fatigued and can't sleep at school obviously. Is there any way to stop it or at least help me sleep better at night on my period? Thanks. :)

Firstly deal with the cramps and PMS. These are not an inevitable part of menstruation, in the vast majority of cases you can prevent these all together, regulate your hormones with evening primrose oil or chaste tree for a start, see some suggestions on my answer here - http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;... Leak-free. Obviously you can't use tampons overnight, but you can use menstrual cups which are internal and can be worn all night without health risk and don't leak either - where as tampons contribute to cramps cups reduce cramps too. If you use pads go for overnight pads, ideally wear cloth pads like Lunapads which are more comfortable so may help you sleep easier and don't move about as much in your sleep. Wear period panties, either padded styles like WeMoon or Lunapanties, or leak-free styles like Sexy Period or Remii to prevent leaking. Cool down. During menstruation your BBT will be higher so this may be what is keeping you awake, generally speaking to sleep your body needs to cool down - thus why it's best to keep bedroom windows open and take a bath before bed. Generally look at your sleep hygiene, see this page - http://www.patient.co.uk/health/Insomnia... If nothing else take sleeping tablets - either valerian root, 5HTP or melatonin.

I've never heard that eliminating fat would halt menstruation. Doesn't make sense that it would, but I'm not a doctor. I stopped mine with Depo Provera. ☺ Yes, some fat is part of a healthy diet, if it's the right kind of fat. It would be quite difficult to eliminate all fat from your diet anyway, and it's not necessary.

Fat is not something you need to avoid like the plague. Balance and moderation are the keys. Too much or too little of any one thing is not a good thing. Most Americans have way too much fat (too much meat and dairy), but you should get a little bit of meat in your weekly diet (2ounces twice a week). One of the things that we get from red meat is blood (I know it does not sound appealing). I work in a setting with infertile women, and vegetarianism can throw off the regularity of the menses after a while. I assume you are worried about fat because you are trying to lose weight. Fat, calories, carbs, etc. have all been demonized by the people who's products just happened to have less of one of those components. (My cheese has less fat, therefore it's better). Food is much more complex than just being the sum of its parts. You want to eat natural. Asian cultures have long ago figured out how to eat right. What we are taught here is mostly taught to sell us products. You don't need vitamins, you need fruits and vegetables. You don't need to cut calories, you need to cut out artificial crap. Eat mostly vegetables (a wide variety), mostly cooked, mostly fresh and local, some fruit, minimal juice, a little bit of meat (all types, not just chicken or fish, not just white meat, etc), little to no dairy, and drink green tea with most meals. If we eat like the Asians, we will look like the asians. Get a little bit of exercise every day (again, varied exercises) and don't hold on to stress. These are the principles of the Asian diet and lifestyle. You don't need to eat asian food all the time, these principles work with the foods available to us in the West as well. "The Asian Diet: simple secrets for eating right, losing weight, and being well" by Bussell explains these principles well. "The Asian Diet: get slim and stay slim the Asian way" by Tran has recipes that adhere to the principles. "The China Study" by Campbell has the science behind the principles.

Dont listen to these ding dongs, honey! Have you ever seen a gynecologist? If you havent, and if you are starting your periods this actually (for your body) may be totally normal. It may also NOT be OR could need osme help in managing your PMS/PMDD or whatever..., in which case a doctor/nurse/midwife could help you. At least they can start by intelligently diagnosing if there is even a physical problem or of this is normal for YOU and your body and tell y ou if there are things you can do (I always suggest food, herbs/vitamins, exercise, before pills or other meds etc). Dont worry what anyone thinks---why would they need to know? If you need a parents permission to go to see a medical person, or go on your own, depends on where you live. Yu are online. check it out or TALK to someone and adult whom you trust and who has good common sense. You are not comfortable, so take action;-) Good luck!

I get that too sometimes, it sucks! I get some tylenol or advil PM just for taht time of the month and it helps a lot! It's not something you should use all the time, but every once in a while is good. Also, ti sounds gross, but masturbation could help as well. Take a shower right before bed and do it in there or somewhere it won't make a mess. it really does help.

Praise Originally Answered: What should I do about my insomnia?
Exercise, preferably 6 hours before, but not within 2 hours of bedtime. Have a warm bath, or shower, an hour before bedtime, then a glass of very warm milk, possibly with Horlicks, or one of the herbal teas, below, (this raises, then reduces your core temperature, simulating the effect of naturally occurring darkness) and use dimmer lighting. Your bedroom should be very dark, with the lights out, and a good sleeping temperature is 70 degrees Fahrenheit, or 19 degrees Centigrade. Put your mind in a position where it wants to shut itself off, and sleep. View http://www.umm.edu/sleep/relax_tech.htm The progressive muscle relaxation at http://www.drcoxconsulting.com/managing-stress.html is very easily learned; guided imagery, or mindfulness breathing at http://altmedicine.about.com/cs/mindbody/a/Meditation.htm is known to be effective, or http://www.wikihow.com/Meditate or Yoga Nidra (a series of easy mental exercises only; no flexibility is required) on page L at 8m.com, below. Give the EFT a tryout. It is free via the searchbar at http://www.mercola.com "EFT" & "EFT therapists" or www.tapping.com (13 free videos) or www.eftuniverse.com Repeat to yourself: "Even though I currently have a sleep disorder, I deeply and completely accept myself." (or choose your own wording) while you use the acupressure massage/tapping. Find out which works best for you, in the daylight hours, so you will be prepared, come bedtime. For many people, a good idea is to develop a set "wind down" routine for the last hour before bedtime, so your subconscious mind learns that it is time to put thinking aside, and prepare for mindfulness, (awareness, without cogitation/purposeful thought) or the EFT, in preparation for sleep. The idea with mindfulness is to not even think about sleeping: just drift off, naturally, during exercising those techniques. Avoid TV, computer, or anything exciting in this hour, although reading a BORING! book is a good idea. Experiment, to find which combination works best for you. No coffee, tea, or other caffeine within 6 hrs of bedtime! Try a cup of chamomile herbal tea, an hour before bedtime. Others may prefer Sleepytime, by Celestial Seasonings, Relax, Be Sleepy, or valerian root (valerian "hangovers" possible), etc., from supermarket tea, or health food aisles. Milk, or cream should not be used with herbal tea. Get up and do something, like read a book, if you can't sleep within 20 mns. Personally, I prefer to use word/phrase repetition for a short time, changing over to mindfulness breathing; however, you may well find another method more effective. The following EMDR variant came from a book on treating insomnia for the depressed; I use it every night, and it is well worth trying. It seems to reduce distractions during the mindfulness relaxation methods, so I use it first. Keeping your head still, move your eyes first to the far left, then far right, and repeat this another 19 times. Each full sweep should take around a second. If you like, you can either subvocalise, or repeat: "one one thousand, two one thousand, three one thousand ... up to twenty. After this, allow your body to go limp, and relax for a short time. Then repeat the whole exercise, limpness, and relaxation twice. This may well be all you need. Others may require another round of the above. Before beginning the EMDR variant, I take a whiff of lavender essential oil in both nostrils; some people prefer a drop, or two on their pillow. This provides a strong cue to the subconscious mind to prepare for sleep. Get bright light, soon after arising, to reset your circadian rhythm. Stabilise your sleep habits. Try the free sleep aid at: http://www.soundsleeping.com/ You could try melatonin (pharmacies) for a few nights only; more can interfere with the brain's natural production of it. Hypnosis is merely a heightened state of suggestibility, in which you are better able to communicate with your subconscious mind. 85% of people are suggestible, to some extent, so consider professional hypnotherapy, or more alternatives along such lines are at http://your-mental-health.8m.com/blank_25.html
