Q. my lower back hurts so bad when i get my cycle, how do i make it stop?thank you Karen

A. The previous answer is correct. The back pain you are experiencing is most likely related to menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea). Acupuncture is very effective in regulating the menstrual cycle and relieving this pain. Additionally, many acupuncturists offer Chinese herbal medicine that can also help your condition.

You may want to try some acupressure on yourself to help with the cramps. This article discuss some points you can try to help:
