A heating pad and some tea with honey (anyone that’s low or has no caffeine).  If you’ve already been taking medication I don’t think there’s too much else you can do that way unless you see a doctor.

Staying on the BCP was very worth it for me, maybe you can try out some different ones if this is what happens to you without it?

YES! Get heating pads! (They are seriously amazing.)

Also, you can be comforted by the fact that it should get better with time. My body did some crazy things after I went off BC… but it straightened itself out after several months 🙂

Ibuprofen is better than paracetemol (acetaminophen) because it actually helps reduce the cramping itself, rather than just blocking the pain. But if it’s not even making a dent… maybe you should see a dr.

Hope you feel better soon!

I agree with PPs. Hot tea and a heating pad always help me. A nice warm shower/bath does too, and then right into snuggly, warm clothes. Tight waistbands/jeans don’t help me, so I try to be as comfortable as possible during that time of month when mother nature gets cranky.

Glad you are feeling better.  I never go off my pills, don’t get much breakthrough bleeding anymore.
