This would definitely affect their emotions and the quality of their daily activities apart from feeling fatigue as the muscle reaction can cause spasm to certain parts of the body.

Among them are:


Emotional distress can heighten the throbbing pain during menstruation to get worse. Studies find that women who are over-stressed two weeks prior to their period will experience extra menstrual pain during their menstruation period compared to those who are not stressed out before their period comes.
