In brief: Occasionally
Vitamins are essential substances for our bodies.
If we have deficiency then many parts of the body can be affected. In general, a sick body can have menstrual disorders and correcting vitamin deficiency can improve symptoms. However, we usually do not think of vitamins as treatments for painful menses. See your doctor to discuss more traditional meds if your vit supplements do not help.
