  1. Good Post Tarun. I like papaya too. But I have heard many times that eating papaya hampers our period( it causes heavy flow or something like that) as it is “heat” in nature. Is that true???

  2. Arati,Papaya has heat, I agree. For normal periods, we need that much heat. It will cause not increase your flow but if its scanty, it will make it normal. Hope that helps ๐Ÿ™‚
