Does anyone have any advise on how to relieve really bad menstrual cramps?
I get crippling cramps every month and nothing seems to help… any advise?
More Answers to “Does anyone have any advise on how to relieve really bad menstrual cramps?“You won’t feel like it, but it will help (its worked on my last 3 girlfriends).When the cramps are bad, go and do a short workout. Jog for like 5 minutes to get your body warmed up, then come back in and stretch out your midsection. Do 3 minutes of trunk twists (spread your feet wide and rotate your shoulders as far as you can). Then do some ballet ” v’s ” – sit ups where your feet are off the floor. Do some reverse bends: put your hips on a chair, and lower the back of your shoulders down to the floor. Hold that there for like a minute, then do more twisting.You need to get motion into that area, it will break up the cramping. Its the exact opposite of an athletic cramp: there is too much blood in the area and not enough activity/movement.Again … you won’t feel like it … but if you do these stretches and twists, you’ll feel better … and you can do them endlessly during those days of the month – its not like you’ll wear anything out … and you’ll end up getting a slimmer waist.Good luck. If they are that bad, ask your doctor for a prescription pain killer, such as Percocet.
hey, mine r really bad too.i went to the doctor an dshe gave me ibobrufen 600mg and i also use a hot water bottle and plaec it on my stomach it helps alot also drink lots of warm things like tea, coffee, hot chocolate. it also depends on hoe old u r. ask ur doctor before taking any pills and be very carefulllllllll………………take care of ur self…
take like midol for cramps and then lay down with a heating pad…heat gets rid of them so after about 15-30 mins the cramps will either be gone or alomst gone
pain patches, cranberry pills, tyenol, lay down with a heating pad on your belly and put a pillow over it. Sounds stupid but exercise is supposed to help too. I like to soak in a tub
ALEVE. START THEM A DAY OR TWO BEFORE PERIOD STARTS. CHECK WITH YOUR GYNO.
