Common Period Symptoms

Is it time for Aunt Flo for you? Are you wondering what the normal period symptoms are? Are the symptoms you’re experiencing the same as others? Let’s find out in this post!

Common period symptoms include: bloating, diarrhea/constipation, back pain (usually lower back), acne breakouts, muscle/joint aches, cramps, tender breasts, and headaches.

Although these symptoms are common, if these are severe, you should definitely talk to your doctor about it. Especially, if it’s causing you to miss work or school. Periods can be a very difficult time, but knowing your possible symptoms before they start can help you prepare. Please don’t get these confused with pregnancy symptoms, as they are pretty similar. Although, talking with your doctor, (as stated above) will keep you on the safe side.

If you’re experiencing these symptoms, don’t think you’re alone. Before you know it, this difficult time of the month will be over!
