Better drink DNA Noni herbal fruit juice, 10 ml twice a day on empty stomach diluted in water. During the day, drink about 2 to 3 liters plain water to flush out toxins from the body. Drink Noni for about 4 to 6 months for better results. For more details, log in to or send me a mail to

hiii mam,

You are currently suffering from PRIMARY DYSMENORRHOEA.

A woman with dysmenorrhoea needs a thorough medical examination along with a USG to ensure that her period pain isn’t caused by reproductive disease like fibroid, PID, endometriosis etc.


1) Bed rest during the first day or so of the menstrual period.
2) Heat therapy as hot water bottles held across the abdomen.
3) Analgesics like paracetamol or mefanamic acid (PONSTAN)
4) Prostaglandins inhibitor such as ibuprofen.
5) Regular exercise and attention to overall physical fitness.
6) Relaxation through meditation,sleep well.
7)The oral combined contraceptive pill, which usually eliminates period pain by suppressing ovulation.
8) Drink plenty of fluid and wear loose cotton underwear.
9) Maintain personal hygiene properly and proper washing after toileting.

All the best and for further suggestion, mail id :
