I Hate Menstrual Cramps

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 786 People

    I hate having my period sometimes.

    . It's never been like bad before but it just started this year. The crampings always hurt the first day, sometimes second. I just wish that it was like last year where there was no cramping or pain.

    I Want A Hysterectomy

    I have been saying "I want a hysterectomy" since I've first had my period. I got it when I was 14 or 15 and it was terrible. It felt like a bunch of needles was stabbing my lower abdomen over and over. I asked my mom if that was normal and she said yes. Ever since I have had...

    So, the first post I decide to write about is

    this! I can't sleep because of them even though I just took two Midol. I've also tried some baking soda with warm water for an upset stomach and that sorta helped. Crap, I shouldn't have eaten three slices of pizza last night either.

    I seriously hate cramps.

    And it's been forever since I've even really had them. but this time around, I feel like my insides are being torn apart. My ovaries are exploding and my uterus is revolting against me. My flow isn't even heavy, but these cramps are enough to knock me out for the whole day :(
