What do you do to get rid of your cramps? Every month since I can remember when I get my period the cramps are extremely bad. the doctor even put me on pain pills before because of had bad the pain gets. There are times when the pain pills do not even help. So what do you do to get rid of your cramps or too subside the pain some?

what part of the body do you feel cramps? i always have cramps on my legs on wearing high heeled shoes. so i just soak my legs in warm water and relax. it works for me. i sometimes soak it feet soaking soap and that is more relaxing. i dont drink any medicine for my cramps.

They are some good ideas for cramps but i am talking about stomach cramps from the menstrual cycle, blah. The whole time I have my period every month I have cramps, they just do not seem to go away no matter what I try.

i can suggest you look at the net what exercise you can do. i used to have cramps during menstral period but i did some exercise that can help your muscles stretch so it will not be painful during menstral period. i no longer suffer pain, it disappears when i first gave birth. now i have four children and during mestral period it does not give me cramps anymore.

You can use a heating pad on your abdomen or soak in hot bath to ease the cramps as my wife does

I'm a weird one, heat seems to just make my cramps worse but thanks so much for your input.

I drink crannberry juice to help with the cramping. It doesnt get rid of them but it does ease it. Cranberry juice has a lot of medicinal propeties, and not only for urinary infections.

I had to have my regular exercise to avoid suffering cramps. I use to take pills too and even until now I am still dependent in pills not unless I will be religious enough to exercise. I really envy my sister and close friends who are not suffering from any cramps during their period! My co-workers told me once I will be able to deliver a child, the pain will be cured...I wish...
