I have sufferred the last couple of periods from low back ache. My peiods have become heavier over the last couple of years and as I am now approaching 41 no doubt my hormones starting to go up the 'spout'.

Recommendations please for supplements to ease the burdern of the period and ease the dull back ache .

Just about to reach for some nurofen ...

I don't take supplements but have found those stick on heat pad thingies to be utter lifesavers when I'm at work with period pain.
