Good Day
I'm sure you've have been asked this question more than once.
I have period pains about two to three days before my period starts.
But what really gets me down is the extreme pain i experience while being on my period, it usually lasts the first two days.
I have been to the gynae and she put me on the pill which didn't not help but make it worse.
Do i have to carry on like this forever, please help

You could try using Ponstan starting a day or two before your period starts.
