What does it mean to use a hot water bottle on your period?

I always read around to "use" a hot water bottle when on your period. I feel kinda stupid not knowing but i started my period not too long ago. Im not sure if it means to drink the hot water or place it on ur stomach area for the pain. Im not sure but i do feel stupid. Plz help!

    you place it on your tummy, it's suppose to lessen the pain. Also, drinking hot tea helps a little depending on how severe your cramps are. If they're light cramps then tea will work great. But if not, then yeah I would use the hot water bottle. =)

    This is a hot water bottle:

    So you take this and fill it up with hot water (kinda obvious but oh well (; ) and then you place it on your abdomen or your back wherever you are having cramps. You can buy these pretty much anywhere. Hope I was a help!
