    CBD suppositories are MAGICAL. I use the Relief Melts by Foria but there are plenty of other high-quality brands out there if you do your research. Coconut oil is one of the best bases especially for sensitive skin. These suppositories don't just help with menstrual pain and cramps but also with painful sex if you experience that during your period like I do

    Menstrual pain can be challenging to deal with even with medication. Some strategies for managing menstrual pain include using heat packs, practicing relaxation techniques, doing gentle exercise like yoga, using over-the-counter pain relief options, and talking to a health care provider for further advice and treatment options tailored to your specific needs.

    It's the worst pain you can imagine. You feel as if your insides are being ripped out and the sensation can last for days. When it happens, the pain is not only excruciating, but it makes it impossible to function. If you're going through that type of pain, you'll need some heavy-duty relief.

    I find this especially interesting. Mainly because Midol is loaded with caffeine. It's to "fight bloat" by making you pee more. Personally, I avoid caffeine whenever possible. But I am more likely to have some when I'm menstruating.

    Heat can help to alleviate your cramps because it relaxes the muscles that are contracting and causing the pain. I created a portable heating pad that provides heated relief in the front and back. Happy to give a discount code if you're interested! You can find it at [link removed by mod]

    If you feel up for it (and it would make total sense if you didn't) try masturbating -- an orgasm can sometimes (for some people) alleviate cramps. If it's something you try, I'd definitely recommend a heating pad or a warm shower first to help ease the ache and relax the muscles first.

    When you experience cramps, consider taking a warm bath or applying a heating pad, hot water bottle, or heating pad because Heat can help relax the muscles contributing to cramping, so applying heat to your abdomen or back can help relieve your pain.

    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.

    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.
