i've had my period for a year and a few months, and i can promise your period dose not hurt, your sis was just trying to be mean. yes you may get cramps, but i find pain killers like the ones above effective. if your allergic,or cant take them, a heating pad, and physical activity can help.if your feeling sad,or mad try chocolate,it has chemicals in it that make you smile.

hi i just had my period yesterday and it was very sore down there. is that normal?

Hey girl, yep, sometimes when you get your period it can be sore down there.  If you're worried, talk with your mom, a nurse, or a doctor.  And here are some helpful tips for how to handle PMS.

For my cramps, I fill an empty plastic water bottle with warm water. Then I just place it to my belly area and usually it helps with the cramps. That's just my remedy! ^^

I actually find that my period itself hurts a bit, and I get really bad cramps, and even though I'm not allergic to painkillers, most every kind of them just make me throw up! Any other ways to make them go away? Thanks!

Hey girlie,

You can also cure cramps with an ice pack or by putting your feet up or laying down, and you could try taking the medicine with food so you would be less likely to throw up!

I've only had my period once, and I had a few little back cramps, but they went away pretty quickly.

huh...the only time I ever got cramps with my period was my first one...

periods themselves usually don't (and shouldn't) hurt. the cramps, however, do. i usually have cramps for 2 or 3 days before and after Aunt Flo...but some of my friends who have gotten their period don't have cramps at all. it's specific to the person, so your sister's cramps/pain may not be what you experience.

It doesn't hurt at all! Don't worry! The only thing is you will probably get cramps!
