7 Weird Menstrual Cramp Remedies That Actually Work

One of the worst things about getting your period is cramps. Sometimes they can be mild and other times they can be absolutely debilitating. Before I went on birth control, I would get such bad cramps that I’d have to stay home from school. I literally couldn’t get out of bed and would nearly break down in tears every time because they were so painful.

I tried everything I could to make my cramps go away and was so relieved when I went on birth control that they were at least manageable. I was still in pain because, well, cramps suck. But I could finally get out of bed. Birth control combined with a lot of Advil and stretching and lying in weird positions helped.

It turns out there are a lot of weird remedies for menstrual cramps, and here are some that actually work!

    Bananas and a big rice sock work fantastically. Fill a large sock with rice and tie it closed, then heat it in the microwave next to a small bowl of water for one minute on each side. Then put out on your tummy! Also works for multiple muscular aches.

    What I do is take two small scoops of vanilla ice cream, measure out about a half cup of warm milk and a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon, and pour it all into the blender. It tastes great and helps too.
