What helps with extreme period cramps?

For extreme period cramps, consider these strategies for relief:

  • Use NSAIDs: Ibuprofen or naproxen can reduce pain effectively.
  • Apply Heat: A heating pad on your lower abdomen may ease muscle tension.
  • Adjust Your Diet: Increase anti-inflammatory foods, stay hydrated, and reduce caffeine and alcohol intake.
  • Stay Active: Regular gentle exercise, like yoga or walking, can help.
  • Manage Stress: Try yoga, meditation, or deep-breathing exercises.
  • Try Supplements: Magnesium and herbal teas like chamomile might offer relief (consult a healthcare provider first).
  • Seek Medical Advice: A doctor can rule out underlying conditions and suggest treatments like hormonal contraceptives for relief.

Consider Acupuncture: Some find acupuncture or acupressure helpful for pain management.

Always consult a healthcare provider for severe cramps to ensure there isn't an underlying health issue needing attention.
