Help relieve period pain?

They get worse as I get older, I'm nearly doubled up.

Anyone found a pain killer for this? Co codamol is not touching me.

Thankfully I am past all that now, but did suffer dreadfully. My doic used to give me a combination of 30mg Codeine Phosphate with Buscopan which helped. I also got benefit from a small glass of Green Ginger

have you seen your Gp ? I had some meds that helped a lot but can't remember what they were. In the end i had a small op to remove the linning of my womb which made my periods much lighter , sorry if not connected to your problem xx

Have you had an ultrasound? I have endometriosis and after a year of Tranexamic acid my GP convinced me to get a mirena.... totally different now!

Try Bowen Therapy for a drug free alternative.

My answer? Have a hysterectomy!! I suffered for years with really bad period pains and nothing ever worked. Feminax did little and my pains got so bad I would be sick as well. I had an endometrial resection but as my cervix was quite tight (!) I had numerous pelvic infections afterwards and my periods were so heavy I had to use baby nappy inserts as pads!! I badgered my gynaecologist for years until he finally agreed to the op!! I can honestly say I've never looked back. But it's drastic and not for everybody. I hope you find an answer Tray!! XX
