Ginger is well know as an antinausea herb that is amazing for the nausea of pregnancy. But here is another reason why women should know about this great herb. . . .  In addition to being a great antinausea herb, ginger is also a great antiinflammatory herb. And when 150 women with moderate to severe dysmenorrhoea (painful periods) were  given either 250mg of ginger four times a day or the antiinflammatory drugs ibuprofen or metnamic acid for three days, beginning on the first day of their periods, the improvement in pain relief and satisfaction with the treatment was equally good in the ginger group as in the drug groups. So ginger, which is perfectly safe, may be just as strong as the drugs. The one weakness of this study is that the drug doses may have been low.
