the pain was there for like one hour =_= i was struggling at the office, wanting to go home... but luckily the pain reduced gradually and i felt much better.
fyi, i tried not to rely too much on drugs during this time. i know it's not recommended to consume too much of these pills, i only take the pills when the pain is really severe. for me, i have menstrual cramps almost everytime, some are mild which is still bearable, but sometimes it's just too painful :(
i guess men will never understand how does it feel experiencing menstrual pain. i dont even know how to describe it. ok, may be this will help:
Menstrual cramps are caused by uterine contractions (when your uterus tightens and relaxes allowing blood to leave your uterus. get it? =_=

until now, drugs can still help me relief the pain. besides, i know that drinking something warm helps too, as well as placing a warm pack on the lower belly. another suggestion i've heard is to cut down on icy drinks, at any time. i admit i like icy drinks and i think i really should cut down on them. not sure if it helps but no harm trying right?
