I should be eating fish and greens now to combat dysmenorrhea. Ive read that taking paracetamol on the first sign of cramps, and taking every two hours would relieve the possible pain. Then of course, there's the ever reliable hot compress, which works in numbing my abdomen.
They say there are two types of girls. There are the ones who are mad and hate the week whenever they got their periods. And there are those who are always happy, thankful and relieved whenever the spots came (despite the dysmenorrhea and a week of discomfort and pain).
I absolutely know which group I belong now.. but I terribly miss the guy who gives me the monthly paranoia..
