Pain during periods is medically known as dysmenorrhea... Most of the time it's spasmodic or primary dysmenorrhea due to increased prostaglandins..it may be due to fibroids as well... If the pain is starting 4 to 5 days prior to the periods suggestive of secondary dysmenorrhea it may be due to pelvic inflammatory disease,endometriosis etc...over-the-counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen or naproxen sodium , at regular doses starting the day before you expect your period to begin will help you. Prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as mefenamic acid, also are available...I would suggest you to consult nearest gynecologists for clinical examination and for evaluation they will do the needful

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Not really because you would be taking pain killer only during periods.
But try to take it only when its too severe.
Also, you need to take a calcium supplement also once a day after food like tab. Supracal pro.
Consult a gynaecologist in person for further evaluation and management.
Best regards.
