Can some medicine be taken to avoid the cramps during menstrual cycle ?

Age: 13; Height: 5 2; Weight: 91; Medical History: Appendicitis I am my period and I started yesterday, its not my first time but it was the worst pain I have ever had while on my period. I have been taking 2 advils every 4 hours and I know its not good for me but I don t know when to stop because I don t want to take any chances for the pain to come back. Can you maybe recommend me using a medicine thats better for me or something? I also forgot to mention that I had diarhia the day before I had my period and I vomited yesterday because it was hurting so bad. Is this normal?

Thanks for the query
Some say that chocolate is a very good pain reliever for crapmy menstrual pain. Avil cant be taken every 4 hours, it might cause renal injury.
If it is unbearable try an antispasmodic like buscopan plus.

Thanks for your query.     
Dysmenorrhea is a known entity in medical literature .It is painful menstruation affecting daily routine work.It is quite common in teenage or young girls.Instead of Advil (Ibuprofen) you should take antispasmodic drugs ,as painful menstruation-is due congestion of pelvic organs.
