In brief: NSAIDS
If your period is predictable, you can start taking an anti-inflammatory medication like Naproxen or Ibuprofen at the first sign of crampin.
Starting the medicine before the pain becomes intense will help keep it under better control. Heating pads are also very helpful. Birth control pills and the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud also improve these symptoms.
