Maybe there's already a thread on this (although I didn't see one as I skimmed through them), but does anyone have any advice on how to deal with really painful menstrual cramps?
I used to get them so bad I couldn't get out of bed, which was awful. I've been on birth control for about five months, which has helped, but I can't seem to get all the way rid of painful cramps. Since I'm not able to take any of the aspirin/advil/midol/etc. OTC drugs, I feel kind of at a loss. Any ideas? I do get a fair amount of excercize, but I'm sure there's more I could be doing.
