Menstrual pain. I know ladies, even hearing the words can make you shutter. Menstrual pain affects every woman differently. Some experience mild pain and minimal PMS symptoms whilst others experience severe pain and every symptom under the sun. Cramps are considered the most common cause of pain and discomfort when it comes to menstruation. They can be dull, mild, and short-lived, allowing women to go about their regular day. They can also be severe and cause an array of other symptoms including fatigue, nausea, and headaches, rendering some unable to partake in their everyday activity until the pain subsides.
For those that experience painful or debilitating cramps, there are some methods that work and some that just don’t do the trick, especially over time. The Livia device provides menstrual pain relief in a convenient and fast-acting manner. It is one of the tried and true methods of alleviating menstrual cramps so you can go about your day!
Do you suffer from painful menstrual cramps around and during your time of the month? Here are some methods that can help you combat the pain:
The Livia Device
Have you tried everything but to no avail? Tired of taking pill after pill? The Livia device might be the solution for you. The compact device is small enough to fit in your pocket making it discrete and convenient. How does it work exactly? The Livia utilizes electrodes that transmit electric pulses to the affected area, in this case, the lower abdomen. The device starts working right away, ergo, there is no wait time between the relief method and actual relief. The Livia can also be utilized whenever needed as it poses no harm to the body. Unlike pain relief medication, the effects do not wear off over time, meaning you can use the device up until you stop menstruating! The Livia does come with an upfront cost, however, you eliminate the need to purchase medications, which can save you money in the long run!
Heat It Up!
If you are looking for relief and also a little bit of “me-time”, there are a few ways you can utilize heat to do just that. Heat relaxes the muscles and can dilute the pain caused by menstrual cramps. There are two main ways to utilize heat for this pain;
Heating pads are weighted objects, typically water bottles, that can provide comfort and ease pain effectively and naturally. Simply take the heating pad and place it on your lower abdomen or your stomach if you experience pain there as well. The pressure from the weight of the pad also aids in diluting the pain. If you are having trouble falling asleep due to the pain, this method will provide you with natural comfort.
Hot baths are also a great way to alleviate menstrual pain. Hot baths not only help with the cramps associated with menstruation, but other symptoms or pain related to it as well. Running a hot bath will relax the muscles in your body and provide temporary relief. Another plus of hot baths? Self-care. You can simultaneously relief your pain and pamper yourself!
I’m sure exercise is the last thing anyone wants to think of when they are in a great deal of pain. However, exercise can actually reduce the pain of menstrual cramps and bloating. This doesn’t mean you have to go in and go hard when you’re in pain, light-moderate workouts suffice. Aerobic workouts such as cycling, running, swimming, spinning, and dancing get the blood pumping throughout your body, thus, reducing the pain caused by menstrual cramps. This method is great for those who suffer from mild-moderate cramps, however, if yours are severe, it may be best to skip the gym until the pain subsides.
If the pain is severe and exercise and heat just can’t do the trick, you can opt for pain medications. Over-the-counter medications can help reduce the pain, even when severe (depending on the strength of the medication). There are a few options on the market designated solely for pain and discomfort associated with menstruation including;
When it comes to medication, it’s important to note that it is not a long-term fix. Utilizing over-the-counter pain medication frequently can lessen the effects and potentially, could cause damage to the body. Pain medication is a good option for those days where the pain is just unbearable.
Every woman experiences varying levels of discomfort and pain come their time of the month. It’s important to find a method of relief that best works with you. If you do experience severe, debilitating pain caused by your menstrual cycle, it’s best to visit a physician to rule out any issues that may cause an increase in pain. Finding a method of relief that suits you is key to taking control of your period once and for all!
