Menstrual cramps, very common. There are few different ways that can be treated. The first way is actually through a heating pad or using something like ThermaCare makes a heat wrap, that could be applied to the inside of the clothing and it'll provide heat. And heat has been found to be very beneficial in treating that.
Also, where appropriate you could take things like Ibuprofen, or Motrin, Advil, or even Aleve. We want to make sure that the patients understand they need to take this with food.
On a full stomach, because if you don't you might experience a little bit of an upset stomach or some stomach cramping. And also, just try to get some rest and eat well.
So, many times females are running around, they are trying to take care of our families and do a lot of different things. But we forget to take care of ourselves at the end of the day. So, just making sure that you get a little extra sleep around this particular time of the month, and also making sure that you are eating well, that's very important as well.
