There are some natural remedies, such as putting heat on the abdominal area and regular exercise, which can be useful and help relieve menstrual pain.

On the other hand, some supplements may have a beneficial effect on dysmenorrhea, such as ginger, vitamin B1 or E and omega-3 fatty acids. However, more studies are needed to support their effectiveness, as well as that of other herbs and natural products.

In addition, acupuncture could also reduce menstrual pain, but, likewise, more studies are needed to prove its effectiveness.
