Can I eat ice cream on my period?

Yes, you can eat ice cream during your period. The claim that the cold temperature of ice cream can exacerbate menstrual cramps when consumed is not directly supported by scientific evidence. Many find that enjoying their favorite treats, like ice cream, helps improve mood and offers comfort. 

While there's no scientific evidence linking the consumption of cold foods directly to menstrual cramps, individual responses can vary. If you have a dairy sensitivity or lactose intolerance, you might experience discomfort such as bloating or gas, which could add to menstrual discomfort. However, this is more about your body's response to dairy rather than the ice cream affecting your menstrual cramps. Moderation is key, and balancing treats with nutritious foods can support your overall well-being during your period.
