Menstrual Cramp Solutions

Homeopathy, heat, paracetamol and Reiki

I used to get really bad cramps. Now I take paracetamol for 2 days with a homeopathic medicine called Cocculus, which I can take EVERY 4 hours (unlike paracetamol) and this knocks most of it on the head. I also do Reiki and the heat from my hands helps. (I can't take ibuprofen so this is the best solution for me.) If I'm at home I'll use a heat pad as well.

Heat Pads & PMS pills

I have found that Thermacare pads and Premsyn PMS pills work great for me.

Herbal Supplements For Menstrual Cramps (That REALLY work)

I've been suffering from terrible period cramps for some time now and I finally went to the doctor last month and was prescribed with Mefenamic Acid and have been referred to Gynae.

I do fine though, that taking some natural remedies help me with the pain. I take Dong Quai, along with Raspberry Leaf Tea tablets, Starflower Oil and Evening Primrose Oil (combined) for 7 days before my period is due and then throught my cycle.

These are all available from health stores such as Holland & Barrett (UK store), not sure about the US and other countries but I'm sure they are very easily obtainable.

I've been taking these for a few months now and they really do help, but you need to make sure you take them regularly on the lead up to your period, otherwise I find they do not work as well (which is why I am on Mefenamic Acid). I've been referred to Gynae because my Mum had a hysterectomy at 29 and I want to start a family this year (I am 30) and the Dr I saw just wanted to get things checked out and make sure everything is okay as she was a little concerned I had endometriosis.

Am I the only one that has to do this?

When i'm at home i use a hot water bottle and drink plenty of water and that really helps but when i'm at work and it starts then pain killers and the heat pads you can buy really help.

peppermint candy if you suck on it something with the peppermint helps with the cramps a bit. That and exercising.
