Homeopathy has a lot to offer in terms of homeopathic remedies for menstrual cramps. Pulsatilla is one of the most often indicated remedies for this problem.
Menstrual cramps are the most common complaint for women. This pain is caused by muscle contractions and cramps that inhibit blood flow to the lining of the uterus.
