I just give my daughter pain killers, hugs and a hot water bottle and tell her to try and mull through, seems heartless I know but she can be having a day off every time it's that time of the month, when you have a job you still have to work. it's just rubbish being a woman. My sister and cousin suffered really bad and nothing worked for them but the pill.

I was the same when I started my periods. There is over the counter medication from the pharmacy that can help. I also went on the pill when I was 16 and that helped as well.

In Australia the OTC medication is called Ponstan.
