Feeling worn out when you're on your period but can't sleep? Don't worry, it's more common than you think. Even though we know that getting a good night's sleep is important, research shows that women aren't getting enough ZZZ's – and they suffer from lack of sleep more often than men.
Likewise, people ask, what is the best position to sleep on your period?
Glamour asked experts how we should be sleeping when we're period-ing, and they unanimously agreed that the fetal position – on one side with legs tucked up next to your stomach – is the best plan for sleeping while menstruating.

How should I sleep during my period?
