In brief: Many options

There are multiple options.
Hormonal treatments such as birth control pills, Progesterone treatments and the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud are effective reversible treatments that will help many people. There is also a drug called Lysteda that contains no hormones which will help others. Consider seeing an Obgyn for an evaluation of painful periods
