    Article: Menstrual Cycles: What Really Happens In Those 28 Days?!

    Have you ever wondered about the connection between your body's 28 day cycle and the cycle of the moon? Here's the theory. In the days before electricity, women's bodies were influenced by the amount of moonlight we saw. Just as sunlight and moonlight affect plants and animals...

    Painful Periods

    Every month I get the same pains on the first day of my period. My whole body hurts my feet swell up and my legs hurt when I walk on them. Then my upper body is just aching. For the first day I always go number 2 and while I'm doing that I feel like I'm going to vomit. I tell my...

    So, so, so painful! It starts off with waves,

    but then becomes excruciating pangs of pain! My whole stomach hurts, my back is sore, my legs feel numb and tingly, and the pain only increases by the hour. I'm so glad this only lasts one day, and usually the first day of my period. Chocolate, please, please distract me and...

    I know it means your body is super healthy

    and your cycle is normal and all, but honestly I feel like **** and I currently have a giant heating pad stuffed down the back of my pants and I feel like throwing up. IT IS ON HIGH HEAT AS WELL PEOPLE. HONESTLY.

    Raspberry Tea Stopped My Painful Periods

    I started taking Navane to treat so-called schizophrenia in 1982. It helped somewhat and I continue to take it to this day, not because it helps so much with any, again, so-called, "symptoms," but because it helps me to sleep and I firmly believe that although its...

    Not In the Traditional Sense.

    I have really painful.

    Pain killer, anti acid tablets, calcium supplement, herbal tea... But still painful. I had to go to doctor to get another set of pain killers. Gosh the only method I haven't tried yet is s*x and i don't wanna try it yet :'( Also I sometimes faint because of cramps.

    Punched From The Inside.

    I feel like I am being punched from the inside and can do nothing but curl up in a fetal like state and take a couple of paracetamols. My womb is a fist squeezing, squeezing, tighter and tighter like a boa constrictor on it's prey. Most of the time I do not feel anything, but...

    I always know when my period comes

    because of the pain. It's pain that hurts but isn't at the stage where I'm thinking "I can't deal with this anymore". It's like an alarm clock that tells me it's here. But after I realize I've got it. Suddenly it starts to be a nightmare. The pain increases and increases and...

    Yesterday at school: Stomach Flu was going

    around. I ate lunch, and the meat tasted weird. I didn't want to eat it but ate it anyway so that I wouldn't have hunger pains later. My stomach starts hurting so badly that I think I am about to puke. I am feeling puking sensations. I go to the nurse's office (which is rare for...

    I don't have strength to move away from my bed.

    The first three days of chumps are like Me and My hot water bag on Bed. :-! Oh yes, and lot of headache accompanied with body ache. Woman are really the ones which go through a lot and are the most courageous people to tolerate the tearing of their endometrium.

    It feels like my uterus is being stabbed with a

    million sharp knives and being ripped out. I'm in so much pain, and no matter what I do, I can't get comfortable :'( the tears won't stop flowing either. I hate being a girl sometimes. I'm so sad too, I just can't keep doing this. Life... I quit.

    Since I was a teen, I have had to endure doubling-over, must-die-now pain during my menstrual cycle.  When I was in High School, my doctor gave me a prescription for Anaprox DS (super-duper version of Aleve).  Those giant blue pills were a SAVIOR!  I took them for...
