What's the best way to deal with cramps from my period?

OCs. Menstrual cramps can be alleviated by nsaids (non steroidal anti-inflammtory) meds such as ibuprofen. Hormonal therapy, such as ocs, iud, or injectable Progesterone can be the most effective therapies for women who are not trying to become pregnant & who can take hormones. Conditions such as fibroids, polyps or endometriosis can be associated with cramps and may require surgical treatment.
