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.
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
