According to our user surveys, Cramp Aid provides relief for ~92% of users. But we know that everyone’s period is unique, and no one solution will be a perfect fit for everyone. If Cramp Aid isn't working for you, we recommend trying these tips and tricks. If it's still not for you, just let us know and we're happy to refund anyone who doesn’t find relief from our products.
Take your first dose of Cramp Aid before you're actually in pain. This will allow time for the ingredients to reduce inflammation in your system before that inflammation leads to cramps. We recommend tracking your cycle so you can better predict when your cramps will start. It's best to take your first dose of Cramp Aid the day before you expect your cramps to begin. If you don't track your cycle, or if your cramps are unpredictable, take your first dose of Cramp Aid at the very first sign of cramps (i.e. that dull, achy, "they're coming" feeling).
Take the maximum recommended amount of Cramp Aid (3 doses / 6 capsules) on the first day you're experiencing cramps.
Feel free to take over-the-counter painkillers during your cramps as well if you need or want them. We just recommend you space out taking Cramp Aid and taking painkillers by at least a couple hours. Not everyone can quit painkillers cold turkey, and it may take a couple of cycles to reduce reliance on them.
Get plenty of rest and stay hydrated during your period, especially the first day of your cramps. Good self-care practices can help amplify Cramp Aid's anti-inflammatory effects.
Caffeine can worsen cramps, which can mask Cramp Aid's benefits. Try to avoid caffeine in the days leading up to and during your period. If you need a boost, we designed Energy Flow to be caffeine-free relief for period fatigue.
Finish your whole carton of Cramp Aid, even if you're not sure if it's working. Many people who didn't find relief from Cramp Aid on their first cycle had great results on their second.
