Every time I get my period I have the worst cramps you can imagine. I take ibuprofen and then it usually takes the pain away within 20-40 minutes. But I was wondering why are my cramps so bad? I don’t get cramps on my lower stomach either, well sometimes I do, but it’s usually just above or under my hip bone. And almost every time I get my period I throw up. Is there something wrong? No one i talk to has had their cramps this bad either. My grandma did when she was younger though, does it skip generations? Please tell me.
