Nothing did. I had severe pain, every month, agony, more or less bedbound for at least 2 days, sometimes more. I don't much like trying to rate pain & reduce it to numbers, but it was high on whatever scale you want to use. Pain killers never really did much if anything for it.
This year I discovered something, and it's helped so much. Now this time of the month is more "mild discomfort" than "agony." It's hard to believe what a difference it's made. Christopher's Original Formulas Female Tonic Formula: amazon.com/gp/product/B000I48N1G
Dr. Christopher's natural supplements are pretty good in general, apparently. I'm certainly impressed with how much difference this one at least made for me.

Thank you for sharing this, supplements are an easy thing to share with someone without having to "educate" them as to why a diet or change in product might help and if it helps that would be great, I think ill buy a bottle for someone in parricular this Christmas
Also is this something you take every day or only during that week or around it?
To everyone else thank you for responding I appreciate the sharing of experience and wisdom regarding this topic
