    Yeah I get more bloated when I'm on my period or due it. I've not found anything that really helps with making the bloating going down so much but as for the pain or uncomfortableness that comes with bloating, I find that gentle exercise, cutting out fatty foods like takeaways, a hot bath and gently massaging my stomach can help.

    Yeah I do, its really annoying because if you ask anyone else about it its always, "Omg are you pregnant?" The doctor asked me that when I asked her about it. I find a nice hot bath fixes things or a hot water bottle.

    the size of your ovaries increase during your periods I think. either ovaries or uterus I can't remember.

    anyway don't do *heavy* exercise because that will induce pain, trust me.
    eat healthy <<<<<< and don't eat too much meat!
    definitely don't eat junk food.

    for some reason idk why eating fibre helps but this particular point isn't objective and just personal experience.
