Home Remedies for Menstrual Cramps!

Aug 15, 2008
The menopause can be a trying time for most women as so many areas of their body's seems to be causing them physical and emotional distress. Throughout their lives, many women are lucky enough not to suffer from period pains but menstrual cramps can be something they start to experience when they reach the menopause.

The condition of endometriosis (which affects 1 in 10 women) can also increase the pain a woman will feel during this time. There are a few women that seem to suffer no pain at all, whereas many have them so bad they can barely get out of bed for days during their cycle.

Relief from this pain is something many women search for but it needs to be consistent. Pain relief pills seem to be the most prescribed option amongst women.

A tablet by the name of 'Pamprin' is used by many women who say it works wonders for them, possibly because it was formulated for just that one reason. Although many women prefer not to take any form of medication, this does you no credit if you cannot do anything for days each month.

After all, if your stomach cramps are getting you down every month then what do you have to lose? The cramps aren't the only thing that has to be endured either; the feeling of having eaten too much and nausea can also be a problem.

On a personal level, I was just tired of the cramping pains and decided to source an effective menstrual cramp relief solution. Another problem is the irregularity because some months it feels as if I am being given a bear hug and others where there is no discomfort at all.

Sometimes, my relief comes in the form of a heating pad which I normally use on my stomach, and other times it works best when placed on my back. If pills don't seem to touch the pain, this may be something you want to try for your discomfort.

This may not be that effective for women that exhibit painful and disabling menstrual cramps each cycle: they might want something more powerful. The problem worsens when every month regular as clockwork you have to call in sick from your job.

If this has happened to you, you should make an appointment to talk to your doctor about finding menstrual cramp relief. Your doctor may suggest using the contraceptive pill because he knows just how good it is at helping women who suffer each month with stomach cramps.

Your doctor will probably have a number of available options to talk to you about because if you are trying for a baby you can't use the pill now can you? You will eventually find a remedy that works for you; it is just a matter of time.
