In brief: Ibuprofen

Many women find over the counter Ibuprofen (such as advil (ibuprofen) or midol) help with period-related pain.
It would also be a good idea to discuss this with a physician to see if there are other problems that may need addressed beyond typical pre-menstrual, menstrual symptoms.
