Dysmennorhia Again

It's been almost a year since this was last asked so I figured some new information might have developed. I have a friend who has Dysmennorhia (aka BAD cramps), on a scale of 1-10 10 being the worst she rates her cramps as being a 9. I'm thinking about suggesting for her to try an menstrual cup but before I do I'd like to ask a few questions.
1.) For those who have had cramps has using a menstrual cup helped you or made them worse?
2.) For those who have Dysmennorhia (or think you do) what do you recommend for alt. treatments?

For reference my friend is super skinny, has a high metabolism, and slight blood sugar problems. She's thinking about getting the birth control shot or going on birth control to help with the cramps but I'm worried for her health. Any information, especially new information would be greatly appreciated :)

Also, Thanks to everyone in this community for being so supportive for newbies!
