Try acupuncture

Some women might agree that having teeny tiny needles placed at the very surface of the skin is nothing compared to menstrual cramps, so perhaps acupuncture is worth trying if your cramps are bad.

It found that acupuncture might be more effective than NSAIDs, particularly with short-term follow-up.
