  • Menstrual Cramps......

    I get very painful menstrual cramps and I was wondering if there were any things to help reduce the pain. Preferably something I can grow myself or take in a tea form, but I'm willing to try anything. My doctor suggested the drug LorTab, but it is very strong and it makes me dizzy and drowsy; I would much rather use a quick remedy with no side effect. Any tips you have would be great!

  • I am usually done with cramps by day 2. I am having some cramps and nausea. Nausea is very uncommon for me to have on my period... any thoughts? I think Menopause was SUCH a welcome to me, after a life-time of severe menstrual pain! I also try for better remedy!

    • My mom used to give me cinnamon tea for cramps. It helps so much! All natural- and no side effects!

        Alison H. I agree with the question you raised! Does tent sex count!? The only time I had sex outside was on a camping trip (technically inside) a tent....

      • Reply to Underwear or not?

        I do — but I'm so prone to UTIs (thanks, menopause!) that I'm afraid not to. I USED to skip underwear years ago, but it's been a LONG time.
