4 signs your period is coming

 
Your period always come at the most annoying times, but it’s even worse when you’re not expecting it. If your periods have been irregular, there are still ways you can pin ‘em down, even without a trusty calendar. Here are four signs that your bod gives a few days in advance to let you know when Aunt Flo is on her way.

 

 

Tummy Troubles

If you’re thinkin’ you don’t look as good in your bikini as you did a few days ago, that might be some period-related bloating. You could also have either diarrhea or constipation, cramps, and nausea. Some chicas start craving specific foods and eating a li’l more than usual, too, so be careful that you keep snackin’ on healthy things.

 

Emotional Rollercoaster

You’re not a drama queen, but you’ve been feelin’ pretty weepy the past few days. That’s probably a sign that your period is right around the corner. You could also be more irritated than usual or have trouble sleeping. And in severe cases, gals have trouble remembering things and concentrating in the days leading up to their periods.

 

Skin Issues

Extra acne tends to pop out on your face when your period shows up because your hormones are goin’ wild. You could also get some cold sores and sometimes swelling in your face, hands, and feet. If your boobs hurt a bit and are tender, that’s normal, too.

 

Problem City

In general, you might just feel more tired and achy before your period hits. You could have headaches, too. And if you have any other issues, like asthma or allergies, they might be a li’l worse than usual.

 

Periods are never fun, but we all get ‘em, girls. So what do you do to keep your spirits up when that time of the month rolls around?

Would you rather hang with friends than find time to exercise? Why not combine the two and get a bunch of friends to go on a walk or bike ride around town. 
 
You let her BFF borrow your fave top for a party last Saturday but when she returns it, it looks nothing like the top you remember buying. It has holes, stains and only one shoulder. What do you say to your gal pal?
