What to do when period pain hits and how can it best be treated? First and foremost, there are many different types of treatments for this type of pain. Many doctors will prescribe painkillers such as Tylenol to help relieve the symptoms of a period pain. This is not a good way to go because many women become addicted to these pain killers and within a matter of weeks or days will start having a “break” especially if they are on their period. Also, since the medication has been prescribed by a doctor, many women may have to take two or more medications in order to find relief from their period pain.
Other women try alternative treatment options such as homeopathic remedies. There are several types of these remedies that a woman can use to treat her period pain and some of these are OTC (over the counter) such as Preparation H Miracle. Although this type of treatment does not eliminate the pain but helps to treat the symptoms that occur during this time of the month. There are also several herbal treatments available. One of these is black cohosh, which can be taken in capsule form throughout the entire month or in a tincture.
Some women will also turn to hypnosis as a way to treat their pain. Hypnosis can be used to help women relax and get into a state of relaxation. Because this type of treatment does not eliminate the monthly cycle, it may not be the best option. However, for women who are having severe cramps and are not able to get through their period, hypnosis may be the answer.
Another treatment that can be used when pain strikes and your period is late is called mediation. Mediation is a process in which both parties sit down with a neutral third party and try to come to an agreement about the problem. This is usually successful and it allows both people to come to a common solution to the problem. However, it should be noted that this is not always successful and there are some problems that occur. For example some women do not feel comfortable having someone else mediate while others are uncomfortable with the idea of not being completely honest with the person they are talking to.
For some women, what they have done is try different natural remedies and they have found that some of them work. Some herbs will help to take away the pain from period pain. Others will allow the woman to better manage her monthly period. If none of these natural remedies work, a woman may want to discuss the problem with her doctor who may prescribe something stronger than what she has been using. Of course, he will first check to make sure that her period is normal before prescribing something stronger.
A woman may also be able to relieve the pain by taking small doses of Tylenol or other over the counter pain relievers. Taking this type of medication does not mean that a woman will experience periods of regular pain. What to do when period pain strikes is to find out what kind of medicines she takes and if any of them are causing her any side effects. She may have to switch back to a prescription medication.
