You Could Say Bye-Bye To Period Pains
You probably enjoyed not having to worry about periods for nine months of your pregnancy, but the positives can continue after birth, too, as you could have fewer period cramps. Some women even find that menstrual pain
ceases altogether after pregnancy and childbirth. Research published in the British Medical Journal has found that childbirth eliminates some of the prostaglandin receptor sites in the uterus. Prostaglandins, hormones that make the uterus contract during labour, also play a role in monthly menstrual pain. The upshot? Fewer pain-receptor sites means fewer cramps.
