How do you lessen cramps before aunt flo??

I have been cramping for about a week now and have yet to start my period.
My hips are killing me as well as my lower back. NO I am not pregnant and no way couldbe (pills and condoms)
I do 800mgs of advil but it doesnt help.
I do have muscle relaxers that I take at night, even tho they make me sleepy should I take one now?
I have a 5 y/o and a 19 month old, and hubby is away for work.

  • red raspberry leaf tea, chamomile tea, evening primrose oil pills

    also you may want to look into them because the evening primrose oil will make you more fertile. so if that's not what your wanting you would need to find something else.
