Use painkillers around the clock as soon as you notice your period. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs), medicines such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin etc.) or naproxen (Aleve) actually reduce menstrual blood flow not just the pain associated with menses. Vitamin E, thiamine and Omega-3 supplements may reduce your cramps. Zinc and calcium have been found to reduce cramps, bloating and related PMS symptoms. Calcium and magnesium reduce muscle soreness, but must be taken for 2-3 months every day before producing a noticeable effect. Stick to a healthy diet. This includes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as plenty of water.

Try purchasing Midol tablets at the pharmacy. They do help a lot.

Midol works, or you can exercise. It stops the cramps and it gives you a reason to if you've been wanting to but you weren't motivated enough to.

I know this sounds backwards but light exercise is really helpful for getting rid of cramps too. Take a brisk walk after taking your Midol or Tylenol. You will feel better.

Well midol doesn't work I had bad periods to so bad I had to get on the depo shot this stops your period I've heard that this shot isn't good to use if u are only taking it to cure period pain and that isn't normal to not bleed during your period and that u cannot stay on depo for years that your body needs to go through a cycle well I decided to stay on the depo for six yrs or more and none of these things never happen

yababy: Below is the link to the always.com site and information about menstrual cramps, what can help relieve them and what may be causing severe menstrual cramps. Take a look. If you don't find relief, I suggest that you schedule an appointment with your health care provider to help you find the answers you deserve.
