    Calls for painkillers, hot water bottle, hot bath and comfy pj's. When I am on my period I find green days help with staying on plan :)

    Big hugs. i can totally relate to you. I have awful periods and like you have had many pills etc. cerezette pop pill worked for me for a while they totally stopped my periods, BUT i got pregnant whilst on thej and had TWINS... quite a surprise!!! ive since tried them again since having twins (3yrs ago) and now they dont work at all. I had mirena coil fited last year on the advice of few friends and gp who said it would shorten my periods( they last for 14 days) it hasnt worked for me but it did for others why dont you try that hun?
    hope you feeling better soon xx

    Aww sorry to hear that hun!!

    Weird thing is my constant periods became the norm for me. Bit horrible for my OH and my mood swings but didnt effect me too much as you just get use to it and breath through the stabbing pains.

    Im finding it really hard to adjust to the pills though. After feeling so in control im hungry all the time!! Ive always suffered from headaches so that's not really changed but im not sure if i can handle the nausea!!!

    Im really tired today but the doctor warned me about that, its probably because ive lost all that extra blood so i have to keep my iron up!!!

    Ive always been to scared to have the coil fitted!!!

    Men dont know how lucky they've got it do they!! lol

    My sister suffers with painful periods & in the past she has tried acupuncture & apparently it works.

    I'm very fortunate that when I did have periods I didn't even notice:)

    My periods were a total nightmare. Turns out I had large fibroids. Lots of different treatments were tried but none worked. Last October at the age of 42 I had a hysterectomy. Lawd I'm so glad I did! The flooding, pain and aneamia were just awful. My aneamia was so bad I had to have a blood transfusion. I literally couldn't leave the house when I had my period - the flooding was just too bad. Gawd i'm so glad to be free of it all now!

    The essentail oil Clary Sage is wonderful. A few drops in the bath works for me. Also, a visit to a fully qualified Homeopath could be worth a try.

    its crap being a woman sometimes isnt it !!!
    Naproxen is good stuff. The new over the counter Feminax is naproxen at 250mg but when in Turkey on holiday i had horendous toothache ( needed a root canal when i got home) but the Turkish pharmacies had a excellent range of over the counter remedies. Naproxen was what they recomended, but at 500mg per pill and you could have 2, tooth ache no more :) got me through my holiday. ( we brought a few boxes back with us for use in emergencies)
    Hope you feel better.
