Every woman encountered a monthly discharged of blood from her uterus to vagina. We called it menstruation or menstrual period. And one thing we hate the most when having our monthly period is the abdominal cramps (most often called as Dysmenorrhea). Whenever this crampy lower abdominal pain attacks me, with just hot compress, everything will be back to normal. Of course, you need to take some rest to ease the pain.
