The majority of women find relief from cramps and menstrual pain using simple home remedies and painkillers.
However, if these methods for menstrual pain do not offer effective relief after three months particularly painful episodes, contact your doctor for the appropriate diagnosis and course of treatment.
Of course, there are other times you should call your doctor immediately:
If you have menstrual cramps accompanied by fever, increased, or foul-smelling vaginal discharge, if you experience severe pain, or if your period is delayed more than a week, while you are sexually active, you should seek a medical opinion.
In addition, ask your doctor for advice at any time you experience sudden or severe period cramps. Although blood clots and tissue masses are a normal part of your menstrual bleeding, when displayed together, you should contact your doctor for advice.
Finally, if you are experiencing pains like those of the period, outside of the regular days of menstruation, and these pains start 5 or more days before the expected date of your period, or if your cramps continue even when menstruation finishes bleeding, contact your doctor.
Whenever you have questions or concerns about your menstrual cycle or any other health issue, contact your doctor for advice.
Calculate your fertile days
The ovulation calendar is a simple method that can determine the approximate our fertile days during the cycle. The calculation is more accurate when the cycle is constant.
If the cycle is not stable, the average number of cycles can be used (in absolute numbers).
Important: The calculation of fertile days is NOT a method of contraception and should not be construed as such.
