  • I sometimes take 3 extra strength Tylenol and a hot shower. With the hand-held I can focus the water better while sitting in the tub.

  • Orgasms. TRUTH, not joking. Once I read about it online and tried it I thought it was a miracle! Try it.

  • Yoga.
    Lay on your back with your knees bent and your feet on the floor. Arms on the floor by your sides(hold ankles if it's comfortable) and then lift your pelvis off of the floor to arch your back. Hold it as long as you can.
    It honest to goodness helps.

    Also hot water bottles, motrin, chocolate...all good too.

  • When I have really bad cramps my heating ad is my best friend. I have yet to encounter a physical ailment (minus injuries I had from a car accident) that sex didn't all but, cure:)

  • Advil or Naproxen. You need a muscle relaxer type medication. Also, Midol works wonders. A heating pad or hot water bottle helps too. Stay away from caffiene, makes cramps worse.
