decrease intake of sugar...really? i thought sugar or anything sweet helps minimize the pain. Coz i find soda and especially dark chocolate, to be very helpful. I swear on dark chocolates to be an instant pain-reliever, but unfortunately, its also temporary! Well, just gotta eat more i guess..

I am one of those lucky women who have not experienced dysmenorrhea! If you're a woman and your dysmenorrhea is so painful that it disrupts your daily routine, better to have yourself checked by a doctor, specifically an OB-GYN. You might have an underlying problem that contributes to the dysmenorrhea.
