Ok hopefully that will keep the guys out. I need some advice on how to avoid cramps and heavy periods. It's just really bad. Sometimes one month it's not bad at all and the next one is a horrible nightmare (like, leaking through 2 maxi overnight pads put front to back in 3 hours at night - I use always infinity too...). I've been having horrible cramps for 1.5 hours too and tylenol isn't working (I have surgery next week so can't take ibuprofen, and it sucks). But even when I take ibuprofen, I need to take 3 for it to work, and sometimes I have to alternate with tylenol... I had a prescription for pain killers instead but they make me so dizzy I stopped using them pretty much right away. I can't take the bc, I tried the tiniest dose and my hormones got nuts and my cholesterol spiked. Oh and since I did IVF I've had horrible cramps for 2 days when I ovulate too. It sucks. Any advice would be great. I have to add, it's been like this forever pretty much, and I had everything checked 5 years ago for IVF and they didn't find anything wrong.
