Nic, loving mama to 5 with a SURPRISE 6th on the way.
What do you use? I can't use tampons at all and even though pads were better, I found any disposable products make me writhe in pain. I started making my own cloth pads and was amazed at the difference. No cramps, no pain, less flow, and cut my period almost in half. I was amazed. I started selling my pads and I love it when my customers come to me and tell me what a difference my product made in their period.
Do you by chance have endometriosis? Your symptoms sound like you might, and docs prescribe hormonal birth control to treat it sometimes which is why you felt better on HBC.
For period cramps, aleve always worked really really well for me, ibuprofen didn't touch it, but other than that, not sure!
