Having fruits and nuts on regular basis can reduce your cramps. Healthy diet avoids blood clots and lets you have smooth discharge.

I use hot water bags during my mensurational cramps. I have a lot of relief after that. Let's see having this diet plan works or not.

I have very irregular cramps, sometimes vulnerable and sometimes not. Should I have this diet plan every month?

I have personally experienced that if you regularly take mild boiled water, your cramps will ultimately be reduced with the passage of time. Cold water and cold drinks can certainly get you more severe cramps.

Sometimes the body reacts differently to different foods based on the type. So, you should consult a dietitian to give you menstrual cramp specific diet chart.
