Many choices: Start by eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, especially soy which have phytoestrogens. Drink lots of water. Heating pad over your lower belly where your uterus is. Omega 3, vitamin e, thiamine, acupuncture, yoga may help based on studies. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories can help. If persistent moderate to severe pain, see your doctor asap to rule out other causes. Good lucks.
