Hi this is Dr Stan and I will help you today. What you are describing is called "Mittel Shmirts" which is mid-cycle cramping and is fairly common. The cramping you get at the beginning of your cycle is also common. An NSAID such as Aleve or Advil taken as prescribed 3 days before you expect your period will usually minimize the cramps. These can be taken safely and without side effects unless you have GERD or gastritis. Try taking the NSAID now for relief. I hope this has been helpful. Any additional questions? I am here to help you.
Hi, this is Dr Stan and I wanted to follow up with you. Have you tried Advil or Aleve?
