Curing Cramps

I had to take provera to induce my cycles and these cramps really hurt, any ideas other than tylenol, or any other pain relievers to help me be more comfortable?

  • Take a sock, put rice in it and tie the end. Microwave the rice sock for a few minutes, put it on your abdomen and apply pressure. Should help.

  • Aleve?

    I use a PX ibuprofen (600mg). Ask your doctor if you can double your dose, or maybe he write you a script.
