Most women also find that exercise helps them to avoid menstrual cramps. By exercising regularly, you can increase the amount of endorphins that are released in your body, which can help reduce the amount of menstrual pain that you have.

You should also make sure that you are getting a good amount of vitamin d because this can help prevent cramps from happening. Studies have shown that this vitamin is very helpful for preventing menstrual pain and can actually cut the pain related to the menstrual cycle in half in most women.

There are also some holistic approaches that you can take, like acupuncture. This can help to relieve the pain that you are feeling because of its ability to help the blood flow better. Many women have found great relief from menstrual pain through acupuncture.
