In brief: Start with NSAIDS
Cramps prior to starting your period are quite common.
There are many treatment options available from simply taking over the counter acetomenophen, Naproxen or Ibuprofen to treatment prescribed by your physician. Also using a heating pad may help .If the over the counter pain medications do not help, i would recomend scheduling an appointment with your physician to try other options.
