Period Pain

Postby RagDoll » Fri Jun 05, 2009 1:30 pm

I have got the worst period pain today :( I ended up running 2 pill packs together to avoid my period last time I should have been on because I was already really unwell with food poisoning so didn't want to cope with my period on top of that. I always find I get much worse period pains when I run pill packs together!

Anyway, has anyone got any suggestions with regards to how to ease the pain? I'm at work at the mo, so I'm not sure there's anything I can do until I get home?! Help!

Obvious answer but do you have any painkillers or could you ask someone at work for painkillers for your "headache"?

I rarely get pain so I can't really help sorry :(

I always get period pain when I run packs together too its rubbish :(

Probably not a lot you can do being at work, apart from as dipsy suggested taking some painkillers.
I always find going for a walk helps it a bit, I'm not sure why, maybe its got something to do with easing the cramps.

Hi Ragdoll,

I always find applying heat to my back a great ease for my period pains,
since its summer and theres probably no radiators on i sometimes use the hand dryer in my works toilets to heat up my lower back!
I know its not the most ideal thing to do in this weather and that I probably look mad but rather that then be in pain..

also, drink pineapple juice, it helps to thin your blood so your body doesnt cramp as badly..

hope you pain goes soon.....

I feel your pain (not today, but will next week!)! I'm sure someone on here said once that you should drink more (squash) when you're on your period and have pain.... trying to remember the reason..... can't..... anyway, I get terrible pain, and if tablets don't touch it, I find the drinking more thing quite helpful. Can anyone remember who said it and what the reason was? I think it could be something to do with going to the toilet more and that in itself eases the pain. Although that could be completely wrong, it may help.

I usually take two ibruprofen and that helps a bit, I also put a hot water bottle on my back and my stomach to ease the pain.
Sorry if this reply is too late!

That is what I thought; it's always useful to know because it's always going to happen hehe.

Raspberry fruit tea seems to help me I read it some where a few years ago and I find it works also going for a walk and a warm bath helps.

have u thought about the Marina coil i had awfull periods had the depo then was seriously ill in 2005 with a rare blood diease and massive stroke i was no longer alowed the depo but my periods were awfull, and due to the stroke i can only use one hand so found it hard to change a towel, never used tampons had the Marina bled on and off for about 8 months( was advised it can take a year to settle) after 9 months have had no period atall its great, obviously it depends on ur age etc as to if you can have it, but you could ask its hassel free in my eyes a check once a year and chabnded in 5 years :P

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'm sure they'll help all of us girlies during our periods!! I won't be running pill packs together again unless it's absolutely necessary.

With regards to the coil, I really don't think it'd be for me. Obviously having no periods appeals, but I don't like the idea of something being inserted up there. I imagine it's very uncomfortable :S

I imagine so too, however since a lot of people have it, it can't be "that" uncomfortable.

Hmmm they're obviously much braver than me! Surely it must be as uncomfortable as having an STD check?! And that's awful :(

I've never had an STD check so I can't comment on that either :oops:
