That`s what I heard too. And if you eat/drink something cold. It`s suppose to prolong your period?

It actually depends on the people.

If you have your period adn you stil drink or eat cold stuff.. then it doesnt realyl matter

but if you never did and outta nowhere you did, then its effective.

People in Asia tend to not eat cold stuff when they are on their period because they belive that its gonna harm your period but people in america don't really care LOL

I love to eat cold stufff. and i stil do when i have my period.. and nothings wrong with me.. I dont have cramps or anything and my term of period is pretty normal. Mine is like 4-5 days.

No. I don't know where all these old wives tales come from, but you can pretty much live normally on your period with the exception of having to wear pads/tampons and probably wanting to shower more. The only thing you should really watch for at this time is your protein/iron intake, as the levels can get low during your period because of the loss of blood.

actually for me, drinking/eating iced things give me SUPER PAINFUL CRAMPS. OMG..the next day I have to take Midol.

So I guess it's true for me.

well my mom told me not to eat or drink cold while having your period because it will give you severe stomach cramps and she also told me that you have to wait at least two weeks before eating or drinking cold again BUT i drink cold rigt after i'm over...but i think drinking or eating cold just makes your period last a little longer...^_^ that's my theory...cuz it happens to me..^_^

Yep, I heard of it before. I think it's an asian thing. I usually don't eat cold stuff when I'm having it. At least if it's a very hot day.

My mom says not to cause it like.. freezes up your blood or whatever and then later it'll just keep flowing so you end up having it longer than you're aposed to.

She said the same thing for showering.

Haha.
