Hi everyone, I've been a member of this community for a while but never posted. Just wondering does anyone have any advice on what to do to help ease period cramps. I'm 22 and I've suffered with extremely painful period cramps since I first got my period aged 11. I'm currently taking the pill and that hasn't seemed to ease the pain, I've took all sorts of painkillers used heat packs and pads but nothing shifts it. I've spoken to my doctor and they just keep saying take paracetamol and ibruprophen.
