In brief: Prevention
One way is to keep a careful diary and start taking a medication like aleve, (naproxen) twice a day, a day or two before symptoms start.
Pain and inflammation are easier to prevent than to treat. If your perids are not regular, or if this doesn't work, there are forms of birth control (iud's, shots, pills) that can help...Even eliminate perods for a while.
