Weird Solution for my cramps
I've got a pretty weird solution for my period cramps, I'm one of the unlucky ones, who gets cramps for about 4 our the 8 days of my period, it's brutal. My solution, is bananas. Seriously, bananas work miracles for periods, there's a chemical or nutrient in them that treats menstrual or even regular cramps, I'll have one or two a day, and I'm great. And they're healthy for you! :)

Pamprin
Up until about 3 months ago, when I would get cramps, I took Ibuprofen. However, it only worked if I took as soon as I got cramps and then I would have to use a heating pad to help them more. Then, recently, I found out about pamprin. What a change! Even when I can't take it the minute my cramps start, it still helps them go away. Ever since I started taking it, I haven't had to use a heating pad once.

Ban cold drinks and fruit juices
i usually get cramps on my first day. To prevent getting cramps, I avoid cold drinks especially sour fruit juices like lemon and orange. I ironically have cravings for cold fruit juices or ice cream on my first day so it takes some discipline. I can usually take those things on my 2nd day onwards with no problems. :)

Yogurt
Yogurt.. Seriously.. When my (then new) BF found out that I have realy bad cramps, he did some research on the internet and found out that I yogurt has some minreals that reduce cramps.. So now everytime i'm in pain he makes me eat yogurt. :) It does work.. the pain goes away within 20-30 minutes.

One solution
I was watching on a rare occasion, Tyra's show awhile back and they say eating something salty because sometimes cramps are from a lack of salt in the body. So I know its gross but I drink balsamic vingrette because I don't like vinegar...and vinegar gives a balance of the salt and water we need.

Chocolate Pretzels and Exercise
Heat works wonders, and so does chocolate, especially chocolate covered pretzels. But the best is exercise. Not running 5 miles or anything crazy like that, but walking around for 5 minutes really does help me.
