  • How to cope with great menstrual Pain?



    Even though I'm on pill, I still got cramps when I get my period, and they can hurt an awful lot. I've tried painkillers, but they'd only soothe it for awhile and then come back. So yeah, ladies, how do you cope with your menstrual pain? I'm on my period right now and hurting like hell.

  • A heating pad always helped me. I never had horrible cramps, but applying heat to my belly or back was a nice relief until the pain meds kicked in.
    If the pain meds you use only help for a couple hours, you may want to try a different medication or check your dosage.

    Hope you feel better.

      I drank tons of hot water and hot liquid yesterday, it relieved my pain somewhat. Feel so much better today, as it's my period's 2nd day and the pain lessened a lot. The bleeding too. Thanks for your concern.
