Find another Dr: there are treatment options for severe dysmenorrhea and there maybe something else going on causing your severe pain, like endometriosis. You do not need to suffer in this way. Sometimes doctors and patients don't click. Sometimes the patient needs to go elsewhere to be heard. Keep trying.
