Aunt Flow & the cramps that come along with you.....?

Have them every day of your period, or only certain days? I started mine yesterday, and I never have cramps until the 2nd through 4th day, not even the last. Right now they're so intense, i'm ready to go into fetal position and cry lol

  • I suggest you get some Aleve and try taking them. My OB-GYN told me it was the best for cramps. I can't remember the ingredient that is in the Aleve but it stops the cramps. I usually take one or sometimes two during the day my first day and it sure helps me...Feel better :-)

  • Since I had my first baby, I only get mild, lower back pain the first day.

  • Now I get cramps like I did when I was a teenager! I get cramps bad a few days before but then they really hit the second day and get lighter by the 4th day as well. These cramps have become so intense that I have had to stay home because of the pain and the other uncomfortable side effects. I also feel very nauseous.

  • Just the first few days. Today they are really bad and I have told anyone around me I cannot wait for "the change"
