One of these had got to work. Right?

It's always completely debilitating for me, so hopefully there's a remedy for me here.

LOL, I love the comic at the end of the article. =) It is so cute and true. I love to wear cute undies but hate when I have to resort to some old, damaged ones during that time of the month.

@Marie I second that with ginger! And start drinking it before you're due to have more affect

Taking fenugreek seeds on empty stomach reduces cramp pains.

In my case, I'll avoid cold drinks a week before period. During period, wear bedroom slippers or socks at home :) and of course sleep a lot

Drink ginger tea! Chew raw ginger. Eat ginger hard candy... Can you tell I think ginger is a miracle worker?

Very helpful thanks. Will try a few.

The hot compress works for me... But I wouldn't advise sex on such days.

The warm bath thing works and your period stops when you're in water which is nice
