According to a genealogist, 8 out of 10 girls will have cyst, however we hv control over it too. How? We must not let it grow bigger or into a blood cyst:
 Refrain from taking panadol or ponstan painkiller to subside the pain
However there are many side effects too and when you are immune to the drugs it will not help whether you take the entire row of painkillers or not.
 Pain endurance
The menstrual cramps do subside after a while. Well, lets say you can't endure the pain without any painkillers; this is the time to go see a genealogist (women have a higher threshold of pain than man).
 Ways to counter menstrual cramps:
a) Refrain from taking icy drinks (especially one week before your period).
b) Take a 1000mcg of Evening Primrose Oil every 2 days.
c) Regular Exercise. It really helps relieve menstrual cramps, 3 times per week (if you can).
d) Chinese medicine Pill (Pak Fong wan) - Hv 1 pill a week before and after yr Menstruation, it helps to regulate and replenished nutrients in yr body. If you are vegetarian, you will not be able to take it.
e) Have plenty of vitamins A and D. Carrots, spinach, broccoli, fish, papayas, etc...
You are what you eat so please do take care of your body ok.
Something to add on...
Ladies please drink lot of milk or high calcium products especially if u intend to give birth, & it can really prevent osteoporosis. It's not fatal but can cause lots of inconvenience to yr life in future...So start drinking now....
Severe/slight abdominal pain: it's not something to be taken lightly. Women should not treat "Endometriosis" (abdominal pain before / during their menses) lightly cause the side effects will come a few years later after marriage whereby the disease will develop into cysts (sac found in the body, containing liquid matter).
If the cyst got bigger, you'll have to undergo a surgery to remove it but if it's a blood cyst,things may get worse as your womb/pelvic/uterus/fallopian tubes will be infected and create more problems.
If the infection is not properly treated, serious problems like infertility may arise.
So, whenever you girls do experience period cramps, dun just pop a Panadol or Ponstan to relieve the pain instead go to a genealogist for a further diagnosis as you never know that you're suffering from one which may not at first seems like a serious problem.
Hope you gals will be aware of this.
