Period Problems! >_<

Anonymous

Hey everyone so i have a few questions here. Ive always had a regular period but a heavy one at that and I tend to get these HORRRIBLE cramps. Either i get them before it really starts or during. I was wondering what some of you ladies do to help with the really bad cramps and do you get them as bad as well? Ive considered seeing my doctor just to make sure it isnt an underlying problem... My last period they were about an 8 out of 10 >_< . Ive heard drinking alot of water helps prevent bad cramps to? Thanks :)

Use a hot water bottle/ compress to help with the cramps.

Hot water

Yup, take two painkillers and hot water bottle or warm pack on the lower tummy and back help.

What age are you? Mine were horrendous when I was younger, but in my 20's they downgraded to just bad.

Periods

When I was younger I had horrible cramps and clotting. I couldn't even stand up much during it. I went on the pill for awhile and it helped. When I got older close to menopause it lasted only 3-4 days and was tolerable.

Hot water bottle. My friend had very bad cramps and the doctor put her on the pill to help.

Periods

I had horrible cramps to the point where I would be in bed crying in pain and when I got on my birth control pills it stopped. I still get slight cramps but nothing compared to what they were.

Yeah I have considered getting on the pill but just a bit iffy on the side effects. Ive tried the nuvaring and it just didnt agree with my body lol. Yeah im at that point with the cramps so bad cant even walk.. the joys of being a woman! Ill talk to my doctor next about the pill. thanks :)

Cramps

Drink lots of water, try not to consume junk/sugary foods as it increases inflammation which cause cramps (this is the hard one!) Apply heat or take a hot bath

Hang in there!

It can be pretty bad, I know. Even now there's some days were I'm crying from the pain, but it doesn't get as heavy now I'm older.

Birth control pills have always interacted poorly with me too, apart from the patch (which I'm not allowed anymore due to weight). It's the curse of being a woman we have to live with unfortunately ;_;
