Don’t have time to read this blog post? Watch it here instead!

Hi, I’m Dr. Rich and my passion is to provide every woman with practical knowledge about the world of women’s health. I believe we can find practical health tips, even in the craziest of situations like this prank video we’re about to watch. So apparently some guys think they can handle painful period cramps. So let’s see if they can and let’s see what remedies I can suggest based on their responses.

Speaker 2 (00:40):

All right. So we have this period pain simulator right here, and we have some experts. So we thought it would be a funny idea to kind of try these out. This is not going to be fun.

Speaker 1 (00:53):

Yeah, pretty sure. They’re not going to have any fun. I don’t. This is a this will be about as interesting as I think it’s going to be.

Speaker 2 (01:00):

You don’t have your period. That means you’re pregnant. Right.

Speaker 1 (01:06):

Once again, proving that you know, pre-teen guys w what are these guys are not as knowledgeable, right? The women mature sooner. Yeah. So not necessarily. Um, there are a number of conditions that would result in a woman not having her period. Um, and it is true that every month you’re going to have a cycle when you don’t become pregnant, because the body anticipates, uh, the implantation of a fertilized egg. And when that doesn’t happen, there is a, uh, program series of hormonal changes that results in the blood coming out as a menstrual period. Now, some common reasons that wouldn’t happen. Some birth control caused you to skip periods. Um, there’s a very common condition called a polycystic ovarian syndrome. That would cause somebody to skip their periods. Um, and if that happens for any long period of time, that really is something that you do, you want to see a doctor about. Uh, and we’ll come and do another segment on PCOS in the future as well. And in certain cases, very athletic women can end up skipping their periods. The body kind of sees that as, um, there’s so much metabolic activity going on to build their body, that that’s not an appropriate time. That’s a natural signal to get pregnant. So they stop having their periods

Speaker 2 (02:24):

All of these years. So we might, we might be [inaudible], but it’s pretty painful. Yeah. You definitely experienced cramps. So I hope that these things do it justice because I want you guys to experience them. It’s not, it’s not fun. It’s not fun. So,

Speaker 1 (02:48):

So I feel that this is probably foreshadowing for the boys about to get a big dose of, uh, respect for the other sex.

Speaker 2 (02:58):

Yes. Like a crap before, like icon, like [inaudible].

Speaker 1 (03:09):

Yeah. So this is another example of the longer you chew on it, the worst the shoe tastes. So don’t try voice

Speaker 1 (03:36):

All right. Yeah. So I don’t think there’s been any application of energy at this point. I think he’s reacting to the cold sticky pads. So this is not going to end well for this guy.

Speaker 1 (04:08):

So I think they just said it’s at five, and I think this one goes to 11, but, uh, we can see he’s getting what he deserved at this point.

Speaker 2 (04:28):

[inaudible] his palms are like sweating. [inaudible] pulling your, stomach together. Like it’s, you know, like trying to imagine like a towel, you know, get rid of the sweat, except for trying to like, get rid of the blood and the mother does not explain it to her. It’s okay.

Speaker 1 (04:52):

I don’t know how to explain it. It hurts. So, um, it, it can be difficult. It can be difficult for, um, women to find the right words to articulate the pain. Um, and it can come from regular period cramps, or it can come from a condition called endometriosis, which is an inflammatory process that actually affects other organs as well. And, uh, this can be described as cramping, bloating, sharp pain, uh, burning with urination, uh, pain with bowel movements, pain with sex. So, um, these are all things that, you know, this is just a simulation, but guys let’s show some respect. This is something that, you know, women can go through every single month.

Speaker 2 (05:37):

Yes. I have a six-pack after this

Speaker 1 (05:46):

I’m betting. Alex does not handle this as well as the other guy.

Speaker 2 (05:50):

The only reason why [inaudible] I don’t, I don’t stop. So

Speaker 1 (06:06):

Sophie definitely looks like she has an agenda here. I don’t know what wrongs had been committed in the fast, but he’s going to pay for it.

Speaker 1 (07:09):

So I guess it is on the 11. So again, the opportunity for education, even in the craziest of circumstances, and maybe this should be a standard. So, uh, men can empathize with, uh, women for, you know, this biological process that happens every month that, um, in virtually any circumstance I would feel is being handled better than, than Alex and his pineapple is handling there.

Speaker 2 (07:47):

I don’t know that I was supposed to, this is like having like a baby [inaudible] Hey, you got all these ads as it hurts. So we don’t look like Nope, Nope, Nope, Nope, Nope, Nope. [inaudible] you guys aren’t capable of being girls because we got through that and like 10 more. I don’t even know if you guys watched the footage. I actually ended up pretty well. Let’s try it again.

Speaker 1 (08:40):

Yeah. Just be careful what you put on video. Cause you can’t hide the truth. So I would say an, uh, Alex and his brother’s defense, uh, there is a process of acclimation. So, you know, Sophie and her friend are clearly used to having this type of pain every month. Um, they’ve used this stimulator before probably the boys would have done better, you know, in subsequent trials. Um, but there are different types of pain and again, it’s just, uh, it’s all, you know, for fun and it makes great YouTube watching. Um, but again, I do think it does make, uh, for some, uh, ability to empathize with what our, you know, our partners are feeling. So as promised the five home remedies that could be used in normal period cramping, um, that might’ve helped the boys would be to have, uh, pre-medicated with an anti-inflammatory like Motrin or ibuprofen.

Speaker 1 (09:41):

Uh, and then alternating that with Tylenol. Also, a warm heating pad can be helpful, um, frankly, meditation, uh, to kind of get your mental centeredness and to take your mind off of these types of things. We’ve done a video on that, that you can, uh, catch up here in our channel. And finally, just better nutrition and exercise supporting a healthy immune system can help the body in general, fend off any number of afflictions that the body can become subject to. Uh, and as general good health advice. Now, although not recommended specifically, if you happen to have a period, a stimulator at home, and you were bent on trying it, uh, go ahead and record and attach it to our segment below so you can share with everybody.
