Lots of options: There are multiple medical options.

How to increase flow during menstruation?because everytime im having a monthly period im suffering cramps because its too slow.

Menstrual Cramps: Are not caused by the rate of flow. They are caused by prostaglandins making the uterus contract to expel the sloughed off endometrial lining. Using nonsteroidal Antiinflammatories like Naproxyn can help treat the cramping. You do not need to increase the flow. Using birth control pills can also help. ...Read more

Rule out pregnancy: Assuming you are not pregnant, which you can easily test for, it may be an anovulatory cycle that will delay or prevent your normal cycle. If you are not pregnant, your doctor can prescribe Provera to see if you have withdrawal bleeding. Blood tests for hormone levels including prolactin and to rule out poly cystic ovary syndrome can be done as well. ...Read more
