    Is there a way to lessen period cramps though.

    I am having my period though I have some cramps ya. I don't really like the cramping though. Does anyone know if there is anything I can do to lessen the cramps. Any advice would be nice. Thanks.

    Before Aleve was generic, it was a prescription called Annaprox. That's what all the gynos prescribe for menstrual pain. So I suggest Aleve

    Or ibuprophen...both are antiprostaglandin medications. When I had my periods, they were 100% hell from day one. In the late 80s, my doc prescribed ibuprophen 400mg and I took it as soon as my period started. It helped amazingly.
    I did try the naproxen but it bothered my asthma.

    I suggest you try one or the other...both are very helpful.

    Thanks. I will try that. I think it should lessen the cramps though.
