I've always been pretty lucky when it comes to my period. Even when I'm not on the pill, I don't get cramps, I don't bleed too heavily, and it rarely lasts more than 3 or 4 days. I recently went back on the pill & got my first period on it on Sunday. I am having the worst time! I keep getting awful cramps, usually at the end of the day, and my whole body just aches at times. I have been bleeding heavier than I ever have before and it's only just slowed down, even though it's already Thursday.
My main concern here is the cramps & pain. I've never had to cope with that before - the worst I've ever had is pain in my legs when I've been walking a lot during this time.
So I'm wondering, does anyone have any home remedies for the cramps/pain? I have a few painkillers but I don't like taking them unless I have to, and I don't want to buy more.
