The important thing to remember is that period pain is a normal part of having a period. It is caused by the uterus shedding its lining every month. It feels like cramping low down in your tummy and sometimes goes around into your back. Some months it may feel more intense than others, this is all normal.
Things that can really help with period pain are heat packs or a hot water bottle to the tummy, warm baths and showers, massage in a circular motion to get the uterus muscles to relax and exercise releases all the happy hormones and can really help with period cramps so try to keep up sport throughout your period. Pain relief such as paracetamol and ibuprofen can work very well if there are no reasons why you have been told not to take either. If these don't control your pain, it is worth consulting with your GP. Yoga, relaxation techniques and deep breathing can also help.
Hope this helps.
