  • Yes, for your first 3 periods, it can feel like you're in labor you're cramps will be so bad. Mine sure as hell did, and I'm on my 4th period now. Tell your doctor, and they'll give you some pain meds. I suggest taking a hot bath, NO SOAPS OR BUBBLES! then snuggle up with a heating pad.

  • Before I had kids, I NEVER had cramps before my period. I figured since i'd endured the pain of contractions for FIFTEEN hours, any other pain would seem like a tickle. Pfffffffttttt. I almost doubled over in pain today from cramps. How the heck does THAT work?
