Posts Tagged ‘Painful cramps’

I LOVE naturalnews.com!  Seriously when something happens to me and I’m researching treatments and such, this is my go to site.  I have to share with you an amazing new study about menstrual cramps and vitamin D I just read.   I actually suffer very greatly from horrid cramps, some of it is related to PCOS but I’ve always had this issue. (Sorry to the men who read my blog, but if you have a wife or might one day this might be a great thing to remember.)  So what this study did was give an ULTRA high dose of vitamin D3 five days before their expected period.  They gave 300,000 IU’s!!  I take 5,000 a day, because well I live in rainy Oregon and most of us here are vitamin D deficient.

The results were pretty astounding, after two months the pain reduced 4% and the most noticeable group were those that had the most severe pain.  There is really amazing hope in this for us woman who unfortunately have to deal with this monthly.  I’m actually overjoyed to read this article!  The unfortunate part of PCOS however is the infrequency of periods so knowing exactly when to start (5 days before) is a bit tricky, but I am going to give this a try.  I will be back to post my results after giving it a fair shot.
