Does alcohol actually make these period pains worse? Why does it make the period flow heavier?

Hey there! It is true that drinking during periods can lead to prolonged cramps and pain. This happens because alcohol consumption can lead to dehydration, which can leave you more vulnerable to cramps. This is because dehydration can thicken the menstrual fluids and blood, making it more difficult for them to pass and their flow more painful. So, if you are already having cramps, alcohol does intensify them.
