Menstruation begins at ages between 10 and 15, and the average is at 12. Some may have it as early as nine years old and some as late as 16. Everyone’s body is different so don’t fret if your friends are getting it already while you’re still waiting for yours.

Some are fortunate enough not being able to experience dysmenorrhea when menstruating. Dysmenorrhea is the painful abnormal cramps when the uterus is shedding its inner layer called endometrium. Pain is not a normal experience in menstruation, so it’s best to consult your doctor right away.

Analgesics can be taken to manage the pain and discomfort experience every period. It can be a paracetamol or an NSAID with an analgesic such as mefenamic acid to treat the pain. If such medications don’t alleviate pain, consult your doctor as it may have an underlying medical condition.

4). BEST TIME TO TAKE PAIN RELIEVERS

If you regularly experience painful cramps every period, the best way for it to effect is through taking medication even before Aunt Flow’s visit. This method is easy to track with regular periods, but for some who have irregular cycles, the best way to determine is through the symptoms.
