    Have you tried cuddling a teddy bear whilst tucked up in bed with a hot water bottle whilst singing tunes from Frozen?

    That's what I did when I was a little girl.

    Lots of chocolate and a hot water bottle should do the job!

    As much as you won't want to do this - exercise helps. When I was 11 and had bad period cramps in France (on a school trip of all places), the other school's teacher took me on a walk and by the end my cramps were completely gone!

    I used to get them pretty badly and I found that taking paracetamol and ibuprofen together worked for me. A hot bath also helps.

    I usually take painkillers such as Ibuprofen when the pain first starts, so they can start to work before the pain gets bad. Also, I find that a heating pad or hot water bottle helps to take the edge off and help me relax, especially if I get them at night

    hot water bottles, painkillers, and certain stomach massages can help, just try a few things and figure out what works best for you

    Your iron levels are low right now, so take some iron tablets if you have any or eat some food high in iron, should help you feel better and the ibuprofen and hot water bottle like everyone has suggested.

    Take a couple of paracetemol and get ready for a short jog, they should start to kick in by the time you're ready. Then go for a short jog around the block. I did this a 2 am and when it's cold it gets your blood pumping even more. Then get a hot water bottle and snuggle down for the night
    I hope you feel better soon.

    Pregnancy usually sorts the problem out - but then you swap one heap of trouble for another....

    ibuprofen, if it doesnt work for you, you can go to the doctor and he can prescribe you something stronger but if your period pains are really bad they mightbe caused by some underlying hormonal problem so get it checked out if its abnormal.

    ibuprofen always helps me. Also I always feel less sore and horrible if I am wrapped up warm and wearing trousers that don't have a tight waist i.e. PJ bottoms

    Hot water bottle and chocolate is the best natural way.
