You should see your Gynecologist. When I was 40, I was sick and tired of being in pain every month and had a hysterectomy. I know at your age that's not an option, but there may be something going on such as fibroids that I have heard make periods very painful. Your Gynecologist should know what can help you.
Jennifer; Please you don't have to suffer like this. As the other person said go see your OB/GYN prior to your period they have some things that are made for this and the doctor can find where the pain is coming from or give you something in the meantime for years. Many women used to take Ibuprofen 6-800mg 3 times daily 3 to 5 days prior or at first sign of your period coming on. and this is very common used to see woman treated for Dysmenorrhea this is very painful cramps during your period it is much more common than you think But you must be checked out as soon as you can. And get that monthly friend that comes to be much nicer to you. Please call and get in ASAP you and at your age do not need to put up with this but there are several tests that your doctor can do. To help you out greatly. Please remember if you're taking anything at all be it vitamins over the counter medication special natural teas anything takes it with you to the doctor so she or he can rule them out. best wishes Chuck1957
