    Well i feel shite to put it bluntly lol. I came on cerazette 3 weeks ago and AF has arrived and dont i bloody know it!

    I have always has bad period pains but have forgotten how bad they are. I can barely walk and paracetomal and hot water bottle aren't doing a thing. I expect its worse because its my first period in 4 years :shrug:

    What helps? Does evening primrose oil help at all?

    aww.. i know what your feeling hun only not as bad..
    tips:
    hot water bottle on your tummy, sleep definetely helps the most, warm drinks, and i tend to take painkillers as soon as i feel a twinge of pain or they do not help afterwards.

    Thanks, i suppose there is some relief in knowing it might be better next time lol

    Just had a good cry to oh and feel a bit better. He probably thinks im being a baby but i dont care. He has actually offered to make tea which is nice as he never cooks. Trying not to get tense and stressed as it makes it worse.

    I havent eaten much today which probably hasn't helped. Hopefully a big plate of spag bol and a cuppa will help, (and maybe a packet of biscuits haha!)

    If you can take it take ibuprofen in the higest dose you can. It's an anti inflamitary and thus makes your period a bit lighter and also much less painful. That's what the GP recommended for me and I swear by it. Hope it gets better asap x

    I think we might have some some where. Just take 2 every 4 hours? Has anyone every taken feminax or whatever it is? I used to only be able to use nurofen as thats all that worked but i forgot to get some.

    Yeah just take the max dose as per the back of the pack. They make the tablets with different doseages in so I'm not sure x

    Cuprofen is really good! I think it's more of less the same as Feminax, but without paying for the brand name as well. I take one tablet as it's really strong, & that always helped me! x
