    Default Need prayers please...woman only please.

    I am feeling so sick today and yesterday. I got my period for the first time in 3 months yesterday and its just so painful. I feel like throwing up, and I am crying, and just am getting so angry at how painful it is. I am taking ibuprofen as much as I can. Drinking hot tea. Using a heating pad. I am not sure what else to do!! I have heard of herbal stuff to take, but I do not have any money now so I can't. I am going to make a doctors appointment sometime this month and take about how bad my cramps are when I get them. There has got to be something better they can give me. I am not saying I want some percocets, but something just to take for the 3 days a month.

    I know the Lord will help me through this, but your prayers would be appreciated!!!

    Hugs!

    Before I had kids I, too, had really bad cramping during my periods. It's still sometimes quite unpleasant, but yours sounds really bad. I'll definately pray for you. Do you have any extra-strength Tylonel? I find that IB Profen never helps, but Tylonel does. Try falling asleep in fetal position. It may also help a bit. ((HUGS))

    Yeah I was sleeping but then I got woken up in terrible pain. I actually have been taking ibprofin because thats the only thing that will help the back pain I get. Tylonal does not help either when I get my period. How is it that these pain meds will not work for something like this??

    Thank you!!!

    Try orgasms. Every 12 hours, more if you can. I learned that trick from when I had a fibroid.

    Have you tried Midol? I always found for cramps and a PMS headache Midol worked when nothing else did.

    Ibuprofen may have nasty side effects, don't take too many!

    I'd suggest hot baths/hot water bottles/hot tea, and sleep as much as possible. Breathing exercises may also help (take deep calm breaths using your stomach muscles, like you would when having contractions/labour), focus on relaxing your tummy muscles whenever you have cramps. Moving (walk around the block) may also help.

    Ibuprofen belongs to a class of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

    Ibuprofen side effects:
    The most common side effects from ibuprofen are rash, ringing in the ears, headaches, dizziness, drowsiness, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, constipation and heartburn. NSAIDs reduce the ability of blood to clot and therefore increase bleeding after an injury. Ibuprofen may cause ulceration of the stomach or intestine, and the ulcers may bleed. Sometimes, ulceration can occur without abdominal pain, and black, tarry stools, weakness, and dizziness upon standing (orthostatic hypotension) due to bleeding may be the only signs of an ulcer. NSAIDs reduce the flow of blood to the kidneys and impair function of the kidneys. The impairment is most likely to occur in patients who already have impaired function of the kidney or congestive heart failure, and use of NSAIDs in these patients should be cautious. People who are allergic to other NSAIDs, including aspirin, should not use ibuprofen. Individuals with asthma are more likely to experience allergic reactions to ibuprofen and other NSAIDs. Fluid retention (edema), blood clots, heart attacks, hypertension and heart failure have also been associated with the use of NSAIDs.

    Glad you are going to the docs and hope they come up with a plan that works for you.

    Have you tried taking birth control pills? They helped regulate my period and the bleeding is not nearly as bad or as long. You could probably get them free at the planned pregnancy center or the local health department.
