  • I start taking ibuprofen a day or so before my period is due. Sometimes, if you can start treating the pain before it hits, you won't even feel any cramps at all.

  • Aleve, but even then sometimes the cramps over power it. I have found what makes them go away the fastest is laying on my side with my arm across my stomach pushing down on it, kind of curled up in a ball. Or if I'm out in public and don't have that option, I will either use my arms to push on my stomach or pick up my daughter and have her sit on it.
