What's good for relieving period cramps? But I can't take anti inflamorties

A couple of ideas-: Acetaminophen is a pain reliever, but not an anti-inflammatory. You may find it helpful. Many women take birth control pills to reduce the amount of period flow and to reduce menstrual cramps. Exercise helps many women. The old-fashioned hot water bottle or heating pad may give you some relief, too. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

It's been 37 days since the start of my last period. I had some mild cramping today so I thought I was starting but I didn't. Should I take a test?

Home pregnancy test: Home pregnancy tests are most accurate once you've missed your period. So if you're late and you've engaged in unprotected sex, then yes, take home pregnancy test. If you want to conceive, chat w/your family doc & start prenatal vitamin. If not, then chat w/doc anyway to discuss contraceptive options (and use condom each & every time to also minimize risk of sexually transmitted infection). ...Read more

Can I take 1000mg of magnesium a day? It's 250% of my RDA. I want to take it daily for bad period cramping. Is it ok?

Can I take 1000mg of magnesium a day? It's 250% of my RDA. I want to take it daily for bad period cramping. Is it ok?

Yes, however...: There is no danger in taking too much magnesium (unless you have kidney failure). The only side effect you are likely to encounter is diarrhea/loose stools if you take more than you can absorb. If you take a well-absorbed form you may not need to take that much. I advise Magnesium glycinate or taurate for optimal absorption.

How long will it take to regulate my period cycle on new pill? I'm on 6th package. Haven't had period 7 weeks now. Cramp never get light.

It also sounds like you may need a change in birth control pills- there are many available that might work better for you. ...Read more
