  • midol or ibuprofen if you've got it. Otherwise, take whatever you have on hand...aleve, tylenol, asprin...hydrocodone if you're like me and always have a bottle in the medicine cabinet from some injury or other....

  • Have you tried alternating between IBU and Tylenol? Before my hysterectomy on my least painful day's I would start with two IBU (Motrin) and then four hours later I would do the two Tylenol, I would alternate back and forth. A lot of my doctor's would always recommend it and it did seem to help a little more than just sticking to one of them. Just make sure you don't go over the daily dose!

  • Heating pad and Excedrin menstrual complete is all that works for me!
