THIS Is The Most Popular Way of Dealing With THAT Time of The Month...

When it comes around to that time of the month, we usually stock up on chocolate, locate our favourite tracksuit bottoms and have a hot water bottle at the ready.

And it seems most women are exactly the same.

According to Women’s Health, secret-sharing site Whisper asked over 50,000 users about how they deal with their period.

Over a third (34 per cent to be exact) said that they simply sleep it off while another third admitted to turning to junk food.

Just under a quarter put on Netflix to binge on their favourite show with less than 10 per cent going for the classic combo of wine and chocolate.

Of course, these results aren’t overly surprising, but we do take comfort in the fact that we’re not alone when we wrap ourselves up in bed and open a giant bar of Dairy Milk every month!

Other recommendations for easing period symptoms include:

  • Tweaking your diet
  • Doing light exercise
  • Taking pain relief
  • Applying heat to the area

That's enough about what you should be doing, here are 5 things you should NEVER do on the first day of your period.
