The bulk of your answer is coming from Dr. Salisbury. I just wanted to add to the excellent information that she provided. In conjunction with a comprehensive assessment and any recommendations by your doctor, you may wish to consider adjunctive medical acupuncture treatment. It has been practiced for thousands of years in China and there are excellent protocols for cramping.

Dr. R. Wayne Inzer answered:

Bad cramps EVERY MONTH. could i get drugs for a bad case of primary dysmenorrhea?

Absolutely

First line of treatment is usually an NSAID or cousin to aspirin. The best OTC option is Aleve or Naproxyn, 400-500 mg twice a day, starting several days before the cramps start. This will usually prevent the cramps and often other symptoms as well by preventing the production of Prostaglandins in the body. Next line is hormonal birthcontrol which decreases flow.

Dr. Alan Patterson answered:

How to get rid of menstrual cramps without medicine?

Some herbs can help

But you should have an exam and ultrasound and possible blood work to make sure you do not have certain GYN conditions that may require meds or surgery. There are many meds that can help now and it is better to take a med for a few days than to suffer. There is a newer med called Lysteda that slows down bleeding so that usually decreases cramps and many older meds that will help with cramps.
