Extreme Menstruel cramps

My 13 year old is doubled over in pain every month with horrible period cramps. Does anyone know what to do with a girl that young?

Moderate exercise will help a lot, but she will probably need encouragement to stay physically active when she is feeling so bad. Using a hot pad will help, too. With kids, it's usually best to limit medications, but if she can't tolerate the cramping, you could check with her pediatrician to see what would be the next step.

Does Aleve or Ibuprofen help? That's the only thing that helps mine.

I have patients that have menstrual cramps that are that bad. There are some treatments for them. Either your family MD or an OB/GYN MD can talk with you and your daughter about them.
