Hi Katie
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Cramps during periods are common .They are not bearable for some , whereas others can.It is based on your capacity of bearing pain.If they are very severe , it could be dysmenorrhoea , which needs evaluation.
I advise you to visit your Gynecologist and get examined if there is any underlying disease.
Meanwhile you can take an antispasmodic over the counter like Meftal Plus to reduce the cramps.
Take care

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Since you're having dysmenorrhoea, it would be best to get examined for any pathology which could cause severe pain by a Gynaecologist. For relief you can take a pain killer cum muscle relaxant drug available over the counter like Meftal Spas for example. Drink plenty of water. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Exercise well throughout the day.
