Remedies: Consider omega- 3 fatty acids or magnesium (supplementation or through diet) w dr ok. Discuss use of herbal like Black Cohosh w your dr. Sipping Chamomile & Green tea can dissipate pain. Avoid caffeine, chocolate, alcohol & salt. Warm bath, heating pad & acupuncture are excellent for dysmenorrhea. Get GYN eval – check Magnesium & iodine levels & to rule out underlying pathology.
