Just curious... For ones with severe periods! Where you bleed so much for one week+. They're unbearable! You get stomach pains. The more work you do, move, clean, lift the more & longer you Bleed. Get menstrual Migraines on top of that! Then get suicidal?? What do you do? What can you do? Anything Natural? Myself I can't afford health care. This has been going on forat least 5+ miserable years!! What can be done to help? If Anything! I'm sick of living this Awful Way. Hoping I out grow it!

  • Exercise has actually been proven to help with cramps. Caffeine makes cramps worse... so does dehydration. Drink LOTS of water and cut out the coffee, tea, soda, chocolate, etc... Also, I've read that you can start taking a couple of ibuprofin a day or two before your period starts, to help minimize the pains. Not sure what to tell you about the bleeding though.
