I often use an infusion of ginger root, and while I don't know if ginger
was ever indicated in period for "female problems", it was availible,
and its most common period form of dry slices is both convenient to
carry (no grating!) and most effective for me.

If the spicy taste is too strong, drinking it through a straw and
chasing it with cold water both help.
