Main treatment for your condition is Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs...Start taking the pain reliever at the beginning of your period, or as soon as you feel symptoms, and continue taking the medicine as directed for two to three days, or until your symptoms have gone away.Oral birth control pills contain hormones that prevent ovulation and reduce the severity of menstrual cramps...Consult nearest gynecologists they will do the needful.
