The Menstruation/ Period
As far as we know, there are no ways to stop the period or menstruation. But the cramps you experience during your period can be prevented. Or if not, the pain can be tolerated.
Maybe you are wondering what makes your period feel painful or uncomfortable. Cramps during the period are because of the contraction in the uterus. During the period, the lining comes off the walls of your uterus and leaves your body. When the uterus starting to cramps up, it helps to flow out the period blood of your vagina.
Period cramps can start a couple of days before the menstruation comes, and it may continue throughout the cycle. In most cases, craps are worse during the first few days of your period. It is the time when your flow is the heaviest.
But according to studies, cramps during a period can be a sign of an underlying problem in your reproductive health. Too many painful cramps can be a sign of infection in your reproductive organs. It can also be a condition where the lining of your uterus grows outside of it. Other than that, it can be some tissues that line your uterus into the muscle wall of your uterus. In some cases, cramps can be a sign of benign tumors inside your uterus, in the walls or outside.
So, we suggest that if the cramps get unusual during the period, medical attention is needed to prevent further health conditions.

The procedure used a syringe to suction the uterine lining and blood out of a woman’s body. In the 1980s, they performed this technique for patients that were seven weeks or less pregnant.
Well, things get creepy nowadays and imagine that using vacuum cleaner can do that. Of course, it is inviting to do the so-called menstrual extraction. They said that for 20-minute procedure, you could end your period, which lasts for a week in a natural process.
