Ugh, I’m sorry! Hang in there!

Whats the deal with your cycle- are you on any type of hormonal pills? Coming off? You have PCOS or some type of issue or is this just normal for you?

Sorry honey. I have been there myself. Can you try knocking yourself out with a couple of benedryls while you wait for the pain meds to kick in?

Sometimes I find a heating pad helps…that, and the fetal posiion.  Feel better hun – period cramps suck!

I second the heating pad. My cramps are excruciating! I just got off BC and WHAM! I’ve been on BC so long I forgot how bad they are!

@Adams_bee: I have PCOS, do not take BCP, and have awful cramping that leave me shaking, nauseated, and curled up in the fetal position.  I swear by Pamprin extra strength, usually works in less than 20 min.  Hope your meds kick in soon!!

Take some ibuprofen or mefenamic acid, or other kinds of NSAIDs that work on prostglandin production inhibition/COX inhibitors. 

Unless you are prone to stomach ulcers/allergic to those medications etc
