Over the cou.Nter ibuprophen and Naproxen work well. If mental issues are a problem, some half dose ssris will help mood issues.

In brief: Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen)

You can start with trying various over the counter products such as Ibuprofen or tylenol; heating pads can also be helpful.
If your symptoms are not relieved with this, would recommend that you see your gyn to further discuss.
