  • Try a warm pack or taking a hot shower and sitting in the tub to relax.

  • Advil. Only a hormonal contraceptive will make your period shorter.

  • Try soaking in a hot bath, or putting heat on your stomach. Also, take some Motrin, or Advil, something like that will help. Unfortunately, nothing you can really do to make your period shorter, unless you take a hormonal BC.

  • take some meds, make sure you are drinking LOTS of water, getting LOTS of iron... a heating pad will help... or you could talk to your DR about it and go on BC which could make them shorter/lighter

  • Ibupropen and a heating pad work well and believe it or not sex takes away cramps. If you have horrible periods like that a lot you may want to see your doctor and talk with him about endometriosis. I avoided it and turned out i had it stage 4! lots of regrete
