Period pain can be heavier than usual
The follicular phase of the menstrual cycle is from the start of the menstruation to a few days afterwards (usually day 1–13) when the estrogen level is low.
Studies have shown that women are more susceptible and sensitive to pain during the first half of the follicular phase (day 1–6).
To avoid extreme period pain, it is recommended that you postpone dental visits, hair removal, skin peeling or facials, and other painful procedures for 5–7 days after the end of menstruation.
Pain tolerance reaches its maximum toward the middle of the cycle, and you will be able to resume your health and beauty regimen.
