1. Take 3 drops of evening primrose oil every day to help balance out your hormones and reduce bloating, cramps and mood swings.
2. Take a multivitamin with calcium and magnesium. These also aid in relieving some of these symptoms.
3. Get regular exercise. At least 30 minutes of exercise every day can help to make Aunt Flo appearance a more bearable experience.

I am going to try the evening primrose oil since I already do the other two things on the list.
