For the first few years of my period they just came whenever they wanted and the cramps were killer. I remember going to the nurse in middle school just so I could lay down because of them.
The cramps got a little better over the years but not much.
I didn't get regular till I was 18 and in college. I started when I was 12. The cramps these past couple of years haven't been that bad. Every now and then I have a bad case but nothing like they used to be.
And now that I wear tampons, I do wear a light day pad under then because I do leak every now and then.
I've found that the playtex heat therapy pads help some though for the cramps.
My question right now is do you have any kind of hint as to when your period is coming.. like sore breasts or anything?
If you do, you could take like a couple advil (or whatever pain reliever you use) each day till your period starts and then that day, take however many you need. I've found that helps a little.
But you know, to be on the safe side, you could always go see a gyno and get checked out.
