What a jerk! I'm sorry you wasted your time on him

You're right, he is a jerk. And he seems immature, since most exes would still be pretty friendly with you even after you broke up. But at least now you can date better people!

emmyie11, If your periods are like that every single month where you have severe pain and a heavy flow I would talk to your mom about going to the doctor. I dont think its as bad as we think, many of my friends have done it. They may prescribe more powerful medication or even suggest you get in birth control, the pill helps with that sort of thing. I was going to say to try the heating pads but you say they dont work, good luck.

Three words. What a jerk! Sorry that you dated him.

At emmyie11. How I get rid of cramps is that I exercise a lot the day I get my period. Not like running, like doing yoga or some tai chi. Also if you heat up some water and put some honey and lemon in it, it relaxes you a lot. But sitting around makes it more worse than working out. Also stay away from thick liquids like smoothies and milk, that tends to make it worse too. I hope I helped at least a little! Good Luck Girl!

Okay, so whenever I get my period the first few days I get horrible cramps and it's really heavy. I mean, my abdominal area feels like someone has punched me multiple times and heating pads don't help. Medicine only works for a bit and as for the heavy flow it dies down a few days later, along with the cramps, but it's still really bad.
Also, when I exercise it gets worse, not better. Any advice to what I should do?
