You’re already living a painful life at this moment, don’t add things up to it. Try to limit as much pain as possible.
7. Texting Your Ex
Yes, you’re emotionally vulnerable. Yes, you need someone to vent your feelings on. No, that fucker doesn’t deserve to be back in your life. In fact, delete his number right now.
8. Making A Booty Call
There’s nothing more fascinating than sex when you’re on your period, however, getting just any guy will not do the work for you. Getting Laid is good, but getting laid to prove something is bad.

14. Eating Or Drinking Dairy
Another No-No during the first day of the period is to consume dairy products, in fact, one should avoid it on all 3-5 days of their periods. Get your necessary calcium intake through other substitutes like almond milk.
15. Going Trekking Or Camping
Again, why would you want to make your body go through a shit ton of dirt, dust, and sweat on a heating day?
16. Increasing Salt Intake
While bags of potato chips are your go-to on the first day of the period, according to experts, one should absolutely try to lower their salt intake. Salty foods make you bloat like anything, and no one wants that.
