Suffering from Cramps And Aches

I have been having severe cramps and lower back aches, my periods got over 5 days ago, I do not have any smelly discharge

If your monthly period ended five days ago, and you are still suffering from cramps and aches, the first thing you should know is that these are not connected to your monthly period in any way. You can take certain measures to ensure that your aches and pains are taken care of. But these will provide momentary relief. They will not really remove the problem from the root. In order to do this, you would have to consult with a doctor who will be able to diagnose what the problem is and tell you what to do accordingly. The first thing you should determine is whether you fall in the category of people who are overweight or obese. If you are, then you should also take the trouble to determine your body type. By this, it means you should define your shape. If you are heavy on the stomach, then you fall in the general category of an apple shape. If you are heavy on the hips and thighs, you would be a pear shaped person. If you are apple shaped, then you would find that the pressure of your extra weight on the stomach falls on your lower back. This will make your back ache and will also give you an all permeating feeling of being tired.

If this is the case, you must take measures to lose the extra weight you are carrying about. This can be done by following a proper regimen of exercise and eating correctly. Cut back on carbohydrates and fats from your diet. Concentrate instead on leafy greens and fresh fruits and vegetables. This will ensure that you do not gain any more weight and will also help with the fat burning process. You should try to get in about 45 minutes of exercise at least thrice a week. If you can manage it, you should exercise everyday, as this will show the most positive results. Your stomach cramps can be explained if you are suffering from indigestion, this usually results in cramping and pain in the stomach. These would be particularly aggravated if you are also having trouble with constipation. Check these things off your list. If you are suffering from any of them, you can take steps to remedy the situation at home. Make buttermilk with a tablespoon of yogurt and a liter of water. Add a pinch of rock salt and keep sipping this till your system comes back to normal.
