What are you taking for Menstrual cycle aches and cramps? Just got my first menstrual cycle after years not having it due to being over weight and I do not miss this feeling.

A heating pad, sip hot tea, and tylenol. That sucks, and I feel your pain. *hugs*

It was just awful having periods after the surgery after 2,5 years of not having it :P I had an IUD so that was mostly why. The first period felt like my uterus was ripping apart, and all other after november have been with sore boobs. Espesically my left boob burns by everything it touches. I squished on the pillow last night and it burned for like hours. Surgeon said it would get better by time, but the rapid weightloss was followed with lots of hormon changes and it might cause some extra pain.

Heating pads and relaxation are my best bet. Issue with pain killers is that you sort of get used to taking them and you will feel imaginary pain. Try work around it if is in the "I can live with this this is just uncomfortable" pain.
