You could only dream of a world without pains, sufferings and diseases. When you step into reality you come across all the possible threats to your life and health. Not all days are great and while some days are accompanied by commonly felt nausea, some come with serious illnesses. Menses become a common cause of making women prone to illnesses and falling ill more quickly than men. It is because the loss of blood already makes them quite weak and any abnormalities in the menstrual cycles also cause a lot of trouble. The pains, pangs and cramps are always gifts that come with those special days.
