How do you prevent cramping during your period?
Taking medication to ease menstrual cramp pain should be a first-line of treatment, according to WebMD. Some options include naproxen, ibuprofen and acetaminophen. The application of a heating pad can alleviate the pain experienced. Alternatively, a hot water bottle or hot bath can be used. Herbal teas, including raspberry, mint or blackberry, can provide some relief from tense muscle tension and cramps. These teas may also reduce anxiety during the menstrual cycle.
