      Hi Sangita, we often say that if your symptoms crop up around the same time each month then they are more likely to be related to your hormones. If this problem is more constant we would recommend you discuss this with your doctor. A magnesium supplement, plenty of water and Devil’s Claw may be worth considering in the meantime.

      Hi Diksha If you periods are getting really heavy it is important to see your doctor. In the meantime you may find taking a magnesium supplement 200mg once a day with food can ease the pain. Back paion can often indicate dehydration so remember to drink plenty of plain water everyday and try to avoid caffeine, fizzy drinks and fruit juices as these may make symptoms worse.
