Menstrual cramps hindering daily activities. Taking Brufen. Can you guide?

Hi Doc, I am 20 years old and have sever menstrual cramps since the time they started. It started when I was 12 years old. I usually take pain killers brufen. But the pain starts to come back after 5 hours and it hinders my daily activities. I was old by one of the gynecologist to take antispasmodic drugs. She gave me meftal spas but that does not work for me. Can you guide on this... Thanks

Hi, thanks for writing..
If meftal spas dont work, you can take brufen twice daily.. Apply warm water bag on to lower abdomen to reduce the pain.. Taking plain mefenemic acid twice daily will also reduce pain.. Pain will come down after child birth in most of the patients.. Positive approach during mensus and confidence of overcoming the problem is important at this stage..Hope i have answered your query.. Good day..
