Many of us experience pain during or right before the periods. This is caused for the most part by the uterus contracting in order to shed the uterine lining. A heat pack of hot water bottle on your lower back can help take the edge off period pain, but if it’s really intense try a painkiller. There are plenty around designed specifically for period pain. If you’re unsure about what to get, your doctor or pharmacist will be able to point you in the right direction. Believe it or not, a little exercise can help too as it releases endorphins inside your body, which are like nature’s own painkillers. But just try a few options and go with whatever works best for you. At times you may see just a Spotting.
