    It's the first day of my period today and I have for every side effect you could think of to the point it is making me vomit and the pain is unbearable. I've taken ibuprofen and had a warm bath then tried feminax but nothing is easing it at all. Anything else I can try???

    I experienced this for years. Make an appointment with your GP and discuss this, you will most likely be given tablets to control the pain, specifically ones linked to period pain.

    How about hot compress? Maybe it can help.

    I was prescribed the same! It worked wonders for the most part

    You can take codeine, paracetamol and ibuprofen in conjunction with each other. My over the counter remedy which I use every month is:

    2 x nurofen plus (highest strength codeine available over the counter & ibuprofen).
    2 x 500mg paracetamol.

    Follow the instructions on packet for how long to leave between doses.

    I also find that if I take tablets before cramp kicks in I can control the pain with less tablets. I'm lucky in that sense as I start to show before cramp Starts.

    Don't take ibuprofen if you are vomiting, as it irritates the stomach. Take paracetamol though.

    Sounds like you need to go to the doctors, i used to have terrible backache and i went on the pill and the pain is nowhere near as bad anymore

    Oh that's not good! Were you given any other tablets? It's stopped controlling my pain now so I have to go back and see my GP

    My periods were also heavy so I was on the tranaxemic acid which really helped with that but then I changed to microgynon and was on that for 2 years and I didn't felt it helped much and I had massive mood swings. Then I went on cerazette for 6 months which caused me to bleed every day. So last month stopped pills and my mood felt so much better and I gained weight from the pills.
    So now I gone back to tranaxemic acid as my main problem was heaviness and I just take neurofen for the pain.
