The uterus sheds its lining every month in a process commonly referred to as menstruation or menstrual period. While feeling a minimal level of discomfort before or during your menstruation is normal, excessive or gruesome pain is abnormal. You don’t have to live with this!
Home treatments for painful periods may include massaging the abdomen, taking warm baths, regularly exercising, trying relaxation techniques, vitamins and supplements, heating pads, and anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen, Advil, Motrin, aspirin).
Birth control pills, IUD’s and stronger pain medications are the most common medical treatments. If you are experiencing bad periods schedule an appointment so that we can help you feel better!
