Hey guys just creating this thread for you guys to share your tips on getting through your period. This came to me as right now I'm having pre period pain and when I get my period I get really bad pain in my back and stomach.
I try to avoid taking any sort of medication.
I second the Libra heat patches. I also like the cute animal heat packs from Daiso. A cup of tea or hot chocolate and hot bath/shower.
I found exercising regularly days or week before you know it is coming actually helped the most - I felt virtually nothing when it did arrive and it was the best! I use apps to track the approximate time when my period is due. I wasn't even moody at all and I actually felt quite positive and chirpy which most people wouldn't expect.
For emergencies: I found that if I made a bridge using my body (i.e. palm and feet on the floor and your back should be arched - sorry, that sounds really funny but imagine it as a yoga position) really helped alleviate the pain instantly. I call the London Bridge but I'm sure there is already some yoga position name for it and I'm just reinventing the wheel.
I take celebrex and a mini hot water bottle with me
As much as I hate to say good old Panadol is the best way to relieve it - also make sure to drink lots of water but make sure it's room temperature as anything too cold or hot will strengthen cramps
I use to get period pain really bad I'd take panadol and it would do nothing and i could literally not even move, i saw my doctor and she recommended ponstan it works quite well at reducing the pain but i find a heat bag always helps most (and sleep aha)
I usually take nurofen or panadol. Have a hot chocolate and use a heat bag. The heat bag works so well at reducing pain.
I have always used a heat pack, especially for lower back pain which I have battled with for years. Agree with all the ladies on here who recommended postan, I always have a box around when the pain gets really bad, they are gentle on your stomach and do relieve the pain.
Yoga really helped with my cramps, the months where I was actively doing yoga on a regular basis my pms was reduced.
I also try to reduce my coffee intake at certain times of the month as I find this worsens certain cramps, a good vitamin has also helped me the past (especially at times when I was feeling really stressed with VCE or Uni)

The medical term for period pain is dysmenorrhia.
If the pain is not too bad, simple analgesics such as panadols and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID - like ibuprofen, naproxen, voltaren) can be used. NSAIDS can thin down the gut lining, so it is best taken with food. Short term use with NSAIDS is quite safe. Regular use can cause kidney problems too.
One other option for dysmenorrhia is oral contraceptive pills.
Ibuprofen and hot wheat packs are my savior.
I've reported the three spam posts by JeffMagsalay on this thread. I've also reported the spam on the "SERIAL SPAM MEMBER ON BH" thread.
I’ve had heightened occurrences of hormonal acne over summer, which includes large cysts on my chin and excessive congestion in my T-zone.
I picked up this product because I had some gnarly eczema on my hands and fingers, and needed something intensive to help them heal up.
I was rather keen on trying the Pumpkin Glycolic mask after having great success with the CannaCell Glow Mask.
