Start with NSAIDS: Cramps prior to starting your period are quite common. There are many treatment options available from simply taking over the counter acetomenophen, Naproxen or Ibuprofen to treatment prescribed by your physician. Also using a heating pad may help .If the over the counter pain medications do not help, i would recomend scheduling an appointment with your physician to try other options.

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Medications: Typically women use a pain reliever or anti inflammatory medication for temporary relief. Any of the non steroidal agents will work well - naproxen, ibuprofen, aspirin, meloxicam, etc. If the pain is persistent the hormonal contraceptives may be a good option for you.

Is it normal to have cramps so bad that you can't sleep and feel nauseated during your menstrual cycle?

Is it normal to have cramps so bad that you can't sleep and feel nauseated during your menstrual cycle?

Maybe, but not nice!: Tina, It's common to have this, and you should be evaluated by your pediatrician, possibly by a gyn. If unable to tolerate an internal exam, a pelvic sono can be done to exclude any serious concern. Usually this responds to NSAIDS, and/or oral contraceptives. So, while this may be normal, it doesn't mean you have to put up w/it. See someone, and do something about it. Good Luck

The week before and week of my menstrual cycle my legs ache and cramp very bad. Why is this?

Prostaglandins: The hormones before your period as well as the contractions the uterus has before and during your period cause a release of prostaglandin. NSAIDs like Ibuprophen can help.

Inflammation/bleed: Elevation of prostaglandins in the menstrual cycle is what causes the pain, alongside inflammation of the pelvic organs/tissues as well. Ibuprofen is the best medication for this. Sometimes women have endometriosis, however, and that can make periods more severe. Discuss this with your gynecologist if Ibuprofen doesn't help ease the pain. You may need more extensive treatment. Good luck!

Was : Was the D&C for pregnancy termination? There should be few complications after this procedure. I would get an ultrasound of the uterus and ovaries - rarely, scarring of the inside of the uterus (endometrium) after a D&C can cause blood to build up inside the uterus - this is called hematometra. Ultrasound will also check for ovarian cysts. Your daughter also needs a physical exam to look for signs of infection, with blood tests and antibiotic treatment if this is suspected. Even though she dislikes doctors it is important that she gets follow up, especially as she is in pain. Best wishes.

During menstrual cycle, i took ibuprofen for cramps but I have a nonstop dull pain on my lower left side that was not helped by ibuprofen. Advice?

Need An evaluation: I would recommend seeing your obgyn. Mostly to make sure you don't have a large ovarian cyst causing the pain. Also possible to have fibroids or something totally unrelated. But better to gets it checked out while you have the pain.

During my menstrual cycle I get painful cramps and its painful to pee the first couple days but then when my period ends i feel fine. Is this abnormal?

During my menstrual cycle I get painful cramps and its painful to pee the first couple days but then when my period ends i feel fine. Is this abnormal?

No: No, I have heard this complaint before. I think for some women the uterus just contracts so badly at times that it also causes the bladder to contract, causing painful bladder syndrome and thus painful urination for a short time, which sounds like what you are describing. Although not a lot of women experience it this badly, there are definitely some, so you are not alone. I wish you the best.

Depends on cause: An irregular cycle isn't necessarily dangerous, but if chronically it can lead to problems with fertility down the road. It may be associated with something called polycystic ovary disease, which causes weight gain, infertility, and excess hair growth. See your doctor to make sure everything is in order. It's important to find the cause.

Should get checked: Could be sign of endometriosis where the endometrial glands (what bleeds every month during one's period) are in abnormal locations, and by their blood accumulating in these locations (or scar tissue associated with blood) cause symptoms such as pain. Should see an ob/GYN to start evaluation for it
