During my most recent period, the pain that accompanied it was unbearable for around 48 hours.
I experience pain during menstruation every month – however, this month it felt like someone had a set of diamond pincers. Pinching into my lower-abdomen every few minutes. I popped loads of pain-killers: paracetamol and ibuprofen. I used a hot-water bottle, and I gave in to all my cravings.
Which upon reflection, feeding my cravings could have heightened the pain? Or that could be me over-speculating. I cried myself to sleep a few times as I’ve never experienced pains on that scale before.
What do you do to combat period pains?
Do you feel it gets worse/better with age?
Any tips and tricks to help sooth the pain?
