Can you get rid of period cramps without using pills?

I have a good way that works really well and cheap. When I have bad cramps, I drink a cup of hot water with PLENTY OF BROWN SUGAR added in it. It works well, tastes sweet, and it doesn't have the side affects of pills and medicine. And dark brown sugar works the best.

Answer

Try a heating pad (if you don't have one, they are only about $15 at your drug store) and have someone rub your stomach. It feels better when someone else does it. For me, having my husband rub my lower back feels so great. Avoid caffiene too.

Answer

taking hot baths works great for muscles to relax and stop contracting. (Although you probably shouldn't take a bath while on your period)

I get bad ones. what i do is stretch. Stretching and exercising is prob the best thing. Also hot drinks like hot chocolate, cofee, tea or maybe soup. I Run with the dog for about twenty minutes whenever i have period then mum always asks me for hot chocolate if she knows if i have my period.

Answer

Lay on a heating pad, take two Motrin, and drink some herbal tea. It always helps me. If you don't want to take the Motrin then you don't have to. Also taking a warm shower or bath helps a lot.
