Well, I just got my period today [Smile] But I have been thinking about something so thought I'd put it here...Sorry if it sounds stupid...

Often I have noticed I get my period but it is only after 2-3 hours that the flow really begins....why is that?

And is it true that the flow gets lesser in the nights?

And somewhere on this site I saw home remedies to reduce menstrual pains but not sure where I saw it...can't find the link....Would someone be able to help me?

Thanks a ton in advance

I'm not sure I understand your first question. Do you mean it takes a few hours for you to really notice the flow? If so, this is just the way the body works. Periods tend to be heavier the 2nd and 3rd days, and taper off afterwards, and the first day's flow can be lighter. What you're seeing is just your body's normal progression.

The flow can appear to lessen @ night and during physical activity as well, yes. But it's still there.

Could you have seen this article? The 4th paragraph talks about getting relief from menstrual symptoms.
