In brief: Motrin/aleve

Some cramping is expected during the normal period for many women, but some suffer quite a bit.
The antiinflammatory meds such as aleve/motrin inhibits the prostaglandins in your uterus areas thus help reducing the cramps. If symptoms recurs every month and bothersome, consult with doc for possible use of contraceptive pills/injectable or even an iud such as Mirena (levonorgestrel) etc..Good luck.
