Answer to your Health Question

Question: Hi, I am 20 years of age and for the last 1 or so I get really bad period pains so I went to the doctor and she put me on some pain killers that I had to take 4 days before I was due and then for the duration of my period also but it didn't take the pain away and now because of it I am always late anything from 5 days to 2 weeks. Is there anything I can do to solve this? Thanks a million, Smiley

Answer: Dear Smiley,

Menstrual cramps are very common in women. Since your doctor knows the type of medication you are taking, explain to him/her what your current symptoms are.

Women that suffer from menstrual cramps can find some relief as well as regular periods by using the pill. Because oral contraceptive pills prevent ovulation, they also get rid of menstrual cramps and can regulate periods to exactly 28 days.
