I’m struggling with the worst period cramps. How do I fix them?


I’m a teenager who has struggled the the worst period cramps for some time now. I can’t do the things I used the do.

The cramps have gotten so bad that I can even get up and walk around. I’ve missed out on so much because of this.

I’ve tried IB Profen, heating pads, warm beverages, hot showers, and sleep. None of those things listen have seemed to help me.

I fear the idea of birth control because I’ve been told it can cause weight gain and/or loss. I’ve already got body image issues, so I’m not sure if birth control is right for my mental health at the moment.

Does anybody have any tips? I’m running out of ideas.
