I've taken estrogen pills before, first as birth control, and later as the morning-after pill. They really screwed up my periods afterwards and made me puke from all the monthly pain, trust me, you don't want to do that. You don't have to have tension on your period at all. The month leading up to the period, if you eat and drink certain things and do certain things, the period will be less painful and you will have less PMS. I've done it myself.

Take a long walk every day in the sun, with sunscreen and all that. Eat iron-rich foods daily, such as red meat and cooked dark leafy greens, combined with something containing vitamin C like citrus fruit or bell pepper. Vitamin C enhances the absorption of iron. If this doesn't work then take Floradix iron syrup according to directions on the bottle. Eat magnesium-rich foods daily, such as a cup of cooked spinach Eat calcium-rich foods daily, such as cooked broccoli with sesame seeds or bok choy Eat foods rich in omega-3s and b-vitamins: seafood is your best bet Avoid dairy; the cows are pregnant while being milked and you will eat the extra estrogen - bad. Avoid plastics as much as possible, or at least don't cook your food in them; again, estrogen. Don't be ashamed of PMS; enjoy it. It is a time of power. Always put yourself first and always treat yourself. You deserve the best! You are the best! It's okay to love yourself.

If your period pain is helped with warmth (hot water bottles etc.), then during the month leading up to your period, drink 3 cups per day of black tea with brown sugar. If it is helped with cold, then my best guess is that during the month leading up to your period you could drink blended green smoothies, and eat watermelon daily - but as I don't have that type of period pain, I don't know if it works.
