If you have pain with your period, you are not alone. Eighty percent of women experience discomfort with menstruation. But just because everyone has it, doesn't make it normal. In general, very few women are running around "living in a state of natural hormone balance." So it is no surprise that most women have pain with their periods!
The knee jerk reaction in medicine is to prescribe the birth control pill--but the pill has multiple side effects that are difficult to live with in daily life. Many women wish for an alternative to standard treatment--but don't know where to start. You can't live with the pain, but you don't feel like yourself on the pill.
There is hope and alternatives to what is commonly offered to women.
