Period cramps are something that women face every month. For some, the pain is acute. Period cramps are often unbearable on day 1. Due to these cramps, you might have to postpone an event, an important meeting and what not. Recently, China’s 19-year-old tennis player Kinwen Zheng lost a match due to period cramps. She also had a leg injury, due to which she was in severe pain.
After the match, while talking to the reporters, Kinwen said, “Yeah, the leg was also tough. That compared to the stomach was easy…I cannot play my tennis, (my) stomach was too painful.” She added, “It’s just girls’ things, you know. The first day is always so tough and then I have to do sport and I always have so much pain on the first day. And I couldn’t go against my nature. I wish I can be a man on the court, but I cannot at that moment…I really wish I can be (a) man (so) that I don’t have to suffer from this.”
