How do I safely kick-start my period? Every month I have severe cramps for a day or two before, and a day or two after.

The first step is to take highest recommended doses of Naproxen or Ibuprofen 24 hours before you start to cramp and during the cramping. If this does not reduce the pain after a few cycles, birth control pills may be an option and see your GYN for others ...Read more
