Is there a way to manage painful cramps or irregular periods?
To relieve painful cramps, you can purchase over-the-counter medications. If these don't work, speak with a healthcare provider. Menstrual periods usually come at a regular interval of once per month, lasting 5 to 7 days. If your period skips months, if you have more than one period in a month, or your period is heavy, speak with a healthcare provider.
