heat I have found is the best way to get rid of cramps. It takes the pain away without taking medecine and the relief feels amazing.

There are plenty of remedies. My favorite are a warm bath with some nice bath salts and some ibuprofen. Another thing I recommend is a heating pad. You can use an electric one or they make specialty ones that fit right inside your panties and a very small so they don't show through your clothes.

hot water in a drinking bottle is a good substitute for a heating pad. my cramps are beastly and it really helps.

I hate cramps! I get them so bad I can barely walk sometimes. I take Tylenol, then a warm bath. Then I lay down with a heating pad on my stomach on my bed and watch a movie or something. :)

i have HORRIBLE cramps right now, ans ive never had them ever before. so i went on a couble websites and found that applying heat to the area where it hurts can reduce the pain. well i couldnt find my heating pad.. of course so i took a hot shower and it seemed to work. then i took a hot towl and put it on my stomach and it went away. after i found my heating pad i held it on my stomach and now my cramps are completely gone.

Is it important to you whether your gynecologist is a man or a woman?
No, not at all, as long as the doctor is kind and gentle.
Yes, definitely. I’d be less embarrassed with a woman.
Yes, I think a woman would be more understanding.
No, as long as the doctor is recommended by people I know.
