I'm 13 and I've had my period for over a year and a half. I get extremely bad cramps, and I can't swallow pills. I don't know what to do. I've tried exercising , hot baths, curling up in a ball, heating pads, eating healthy foods, drinking lots of water, crying, ect. and nothing seems to help. Does anyone have any ideas? I told my mom and she told me everyone goes through this.. like I know that , but I still want it to go away. She also doesn't want us taking birth control bc of the fact that it can cause problems later on in your life.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
