  16. Hello I am writing hoping someone can shade a light.

    I need some help. Since day 1 my period has always been long 4 to 7 days and mild pain. The older I gets the more severe pain I get. Lately I started to faint (passed out) during menstruation)> Add to that, a disabling pain that lasting an hour before it wil subside after taking tylenol.

    Recently, got diagnosed with .5inch fibroids.

    I am tired of passing out and the feeling of disabling pain. ( i can't move it hurts so bad).

    Should I make an appt to have to my ovary remove.
    I think it'll be worth it to have no pain…

    I am afraid.. This is my 3rd passing out the last 4 months and I do not want to go through disabling pain. Someone describe the pains as if you are having a contractions. I do not know how it feels because I have not gone giving birth but it is to the point that it might be worth it cutting out my ovary to stop the bleeding completely and disabled the pain from keep coming back.. idk

    Please help!

    Thanks..

    p.s.
    I am 44 never had a child.. thanks

  17. avoid red meat, bad oils, fried food, icecream, milk, cheese and take a lot of fish oils = OMEGA 3 , inflammation = OMEGA 6

  18. Its very painful becoz evry month i hav 2 take 3 injectns it realy hurts me vomiting high levl of pain force me 2 take injctns im scard if i hav gt menopos then wat wil i do? I wil do dis things nxt time may be it can work

  19. Tramadol and pain killers are my best friends, i cannot bear my periods without them. Why does this shit have to be so god damn painful and troublesome. Why can't we just bleed one day but fucking 7????

  20. Before I get my period I usually get random headaches that make me dizzy for like 1min but this time I have lower back pain and I honestly feel like I'm lucky compared to some of the other girls here while my mom just got the first cramp she has ever had in her life. She is so lucky. My mom it in her 30s

  21. I tried Amla powder, that shit is the only thing that works for me, it works REALLY WELL. Seriously girls try it. Two tea spoons in a glass of water, 30min later I feel zero pain, ZERO.

  22. TIP : run the water as hot as you can in the shower and kneel letting the hot water hit you on the pressure points in your lower back. Works like magic

    I get horrible cramps where I start to sweat and feel like passing out. And this works for me

    HOPE IT REALLY HELPS ATLEAST ONE PERSON OUT THERE.

  23. Thanx for sharing this video with us, I had been suffering from menstrual pain last year. It is common for most girls to have mild pain during their periods every month for 2-3 days. during my periods i could not even move. Then I had taken the planet Ayurveda female health support capsules. it's a herbal product and really effective.

  24. Im in my period now.Thats why i decided to search for cure in my cramps..Its getting worst..My boyfriend got worried coz im started to panic..He want me to take to the doctorπŸ˜ƒ

  25. Listen 13 yr body on day 3 of feeling like a dam alligator and a samurai ninja are tearing apart my insides I'm going insane ….im trying not to move breathe or talk the vomiting is the worse …also out of ibuprofen

  26. I been hurting Saturday and today I take the hell out of some meds to help with it I rather take the pills instead of Begin a bitch to my husband I think he wants to kill me at times because of this baby you can

  27. Who just gets dizzy, feels like vomiting, diarrhea, not able to even move, just stay on bed on first day, can't survive without popping out a medicine, still not getting better so have to pop another medicine? What the fuck? Girls have to suffer this thing. The worst thing in the world, i guess. I am crying, please god take me away, i don't need my life anymore 😭

  28. I hate period I hate cramps I hate every thing I'm dying over here these cramps are murder I'm only 13 and. I feel 60 plz stop these cramps

  29. Bru I can't even do any of that because the pain prevents me from doing so…
    It's like 4am and I'm rolling on the bed with headache and a little nauseous but at the same time i feel like voiding.. I don't even know anymore…

  30. So, if I'm in Colorado, Cannabis may ease my menstrual cramps, but if cross some imaginary lines and end up in Texas, it may make them worse?

    ('Legal' and 'illegal' are opinions.

    Why does the opinion of a politician affect whether a substance can increase or ease the pain of menstrual cramps?)

  31. My period is 2-3 weeks and it hurt sooooo much nothing helps, I cant sleep anymore because it is unbearable!!!!!
