I think if they are that bad she should talk to her doctor, maybe she can get some muscle relaxers or something to at least help take the edge off.

She did go see a doctor, they just told her to take tylenol menstrul and maybe a hot water bottle... Was just seeing if there is any tips any of you girls do that might help... There is always some stuff docs dont say that work well...

being on the contraceptive pill should reduce the symptoms. So should evening primrose oil tablets, and as she's already doing, pain relief tablets.

Hope she feels better soon - maybe she should snuggle up in bed with some chocolate and some cozy jim jams

I'd go back and tell the doc that what he/she reccomended is not helping. Has she actually gone while they were bad? If she hasnt maybe she should so he/she can see that she is in a lot of pain.

I usually get em pretty bad myself for at the very least the first day.
Midol, Pamprin...The Tylenol never worked for me.
On the other hand if these have gotten worse over time for her or they are somewhat of a newer thing she should go see a doctor.

Magnesium is good to take to relax the muscles, and can help with cramps. Agreed on the evening primrose oil that helps with mood swings too.

Sometimes there can be underlying problems with bad period pain, eg endrometriosis, polycystis ovaries etc. If she isn't happy with the current doctor and feels that the pain is that bad, than perhaps she needs to go get a second opinion.

She may have Dysmenorrhea. I was diagnosed with it a few years ago. Its basically EXTREMELY painful cramps and aches during that time of the month. I was put on birth control and it has helped alot. I also have another medication that I take for the pains I still get. My pains have cut down alot since I started taking BC though.

If shes really as bad as you say, I would get her to go to the doctor and ask about it. My doctor didn't start looking into diagnosing me with it until I actually researched it and asked him. Alot of the time, doctors don't want to diagnose girls who have cramp issues because we all have them. Some just not as bad as others.

Going on the pill made a huge difference for me. But she'd really need to speak to her doctor about it, and if the doctor isn't helpful, maybe she should see a gynaecologist.

Yep, I agree that the pill really helps. Also, get the doctor to prescribe her stronger painkillers or something like tranexamic acid to help the bleeding.

If doctor's recommendations are not helping than maybe she needs to see someone else. If she's in that much pain, then something may be wrong as well. I've never tried them but have you seen the ice/hot pads that go on the back? I think they actually have some that are meant for cramps. That might help as well

When mine were bad I used to lie flat on my stomach with a big pillow underneath.

magnesium (hence the chocolate, preferably dark ) and lots of water. i also like chamomile infusions, green tea.
evening primerose oil helps balancing the hormones and helps with the pain (it's not a painkiller, but it helps a bit).
