Bad period cramps Mama Rice 34 kids; North Las Vegas, Nevada 11980 posts

So I have ALWAYS had period cramps so bad they keep me in bed and medicated (I feel like I am a junkie from tylenol and/or midol for 4 days) with a heating pad strapped to my abdomen for 4 days. :( I have never been diagnosed with anything. I don't necessarily have to be bleeding super heavy to have cramps that severe.

Any of you have cramps that leave you practically bed ridden in pain? What do you do?

When I was 16 I started having awful cramps and really heavy bleeding. That is when I started BC pills. My cramps and bleeding lightened a ton. After I had DS my periods were heavy and painful again. Then we I started back on BC pills it went back to being very mild.
