I have my Christmas night out tonight - wearing a fitted dress - and my period has juat started. I get really bad bloating the first couple of days. If I took anti water retention tablets today would they work in time ? Or has anyone got any tips ?

Water retention tablets, drink as much water the day before and on the day as you can (at least 2litres) and avoid anything with salt in it.

Don't eat any white carbs today. Drink lots of water.

Bit of caffeine tomorrow morning as dieuretic would help

Control pants and breathe in.

No salt, no carbs, no fizzy drinks. Alternatively nurofen and champagne.Obvs the last lot doesn't reduce the bloating but you don't feel as bad.grin.
