How can she treat extremely painful menstrual cramps? (She started taking birth control again roughly 3 weeks ago.) Also, she's on a smoothie diet.

In brief: Menstrual cramps

If her period is already regular taking ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen) 1 day before her period starts might prevent the cramps , but now she is on birth control pills that will help even more.
Good luck.
