  • I drink hot tea because anything slightly cold makes my cramps soo bad! I take a generic version of Midol which helps a little.

  • They say that , um, 'stimulation' helps. since that general area relaxes after the fact. I don't get bad cramps so I have never tested the theory though.

  • I workout actually, the movement helps keeps things moving along as they should.
    Go for a fast paced walk or do lunges around the house, as long as you keep moving, the cramps don't have the chance to sneak up on you.

  • chocolate is actually worse, studies show you should stray from caffine when on your monthly time, due to the chemicals your body produces. Caffine makes PMS worse.
