I have sex/masturbate and while it doesn't help, it at least distracts me!

I use tampons, so I can use clitoral vibes without making a mess. I think orgasm helps with cramps. It can also increase the rate of your flow (since you're loosening the lining more). But this could also shorten your period a bit too.

I bet it varies when on Birth Control. I'm on the pill, so my periods are shorter, but if I masturbate, they tend to be shorter and heavier than usual.

I've done all three and all three have been effective. Having an orgasm definitely helps my cramps.

All three help, but 5-10 minutes after, the pain is back.

I remember someone telling me that masturbation helped relieve cramping, and I sometimes have debilitating pains. So I tried it. It did not work for me, and in fact did the opposite. Less than 5 minutes afterward, I had cramps that would not quit. I even tried a few different times but with the same result. I suppose everyone is different.

I don't always attempt it, since my cramps are usually taken care of with a little ibuprofen, but whenever I do masturbate while on my period, I find it does help with cramps. It's not an instant cure, but they subside faster and are less likely to re-occur if I have a few orgasms.

It varies, sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't. I've only had it make me more uncomfortable once, and I had really bad cramps that time (which isn't normal for me).

Exercising muscles in that region will help.

I use a clitoral vibrator while using tampons, so it's not messy and seems to help a bit.

With a vibe it works.. but I think it is mostly mind over matter..

Sex can help sometimes but normally I don't want to have sex on the first few days of my period, so meh.

I use an external vibrator because I use the cup and it definitely helps.

I use a dildo and that helps a lot. Another thing that used to help was my boyfriend's car, it was 13 years old and extremely rumbly. Always helped to go for a long ride when I was super crampy.

Yeah pffft T~T If I could even get my ass off the couch during my monthly I be alright. I can barely move it hurts me so much, I've even gone as far as throwing up outside because the pain wasn't going to allow me to make it to the bathroom.
Masturbation is officially out of the equation for that.

I haven't noticed a difference. Getting up and walking around does the best help.

Sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't. But what I do know is this- when I was more physically active during a month, the less severe my cramps were (sometimes I wouldn't even get any cramps at all). When I was sedentary, they'd get pretty fierce.

I have an IUD now, and that has really helped alot. Since I hardly get a period, I hardly get any cramps. For the most part, when I do finally get my period, the cramps are barely noticable.

It's harder for me to orgasm if I'm having cramps. My best bet is just to take pain meds and have cuddles and help my partner orgasm and thereby enjoy her aftershocks.
