Hi, I’m Maya! I have really painful cramps. I’ve tried most medications and other natural remedies. As of now I’m taking Naproxen along with a muscle relaxer, but my doctor thinks the next step should be birth control. I’m not against the idea but I do want to see if there’s anything else I should try first? And if not, which type of birth control should I try (pill, IUD, etc.)?

    Hey! I’m so sorry about that:( have you tried “Dong Quai”? It’s an herbal supplement for dysmenorrhea and to balance hormones. It has helped me immensely. I recommend looking into that if you’re still looking for something:)
