  • Honestly if you look at the ingredients in Midol, you will see caffiene. Just don't overload on it. I think starbucks would be a bad idea since it's got 200% more sugar and caffiene in it that just an average cup of joe.

  • talk a shower or lay down with a heating pad coffee never affected me i have had 3 kids they only get worse the older u get another odd trick i do is i lay down on my back bring my knees close to my belly that always dose the trick without taking midol + midol has caffeine in it good luck
