That time of the month is coming and I need to prepare my relief patches. Having endometriosis causes me to get severe cramps and it helps when I know when to expect them.
I’ve been tracking my period with a free app by PS Love that provides accurate predictions and personalised insights to my feminine health. Aside from tracking PMS, it even tracks ovulation dates and pregnancy for family planning. The new feature, Relief, allows me to purchase pain relief patches straight from the app.
I cannot tell you how much of a life saver these heat patches are especially since pain killers don’t work for my aches and menstrual cramps. Not only are they convenient, they come in no-fuss packaging, compact to take with me and very straight forward to use. They now come in RealHeat technology for optimal heating up to 12 hours and new Japanese adhesives for even more comfort.Ingredients: Iron, Activated Carbon, Water, Salt, Vermiculite (Mineral).
MenstruHeat provides fast heating to bring comfort and relax the cramping uterine muscles and thereby relieving the pain. For best results, start using MenstruHeat when your menstrual cramps begin.

NeckHeat provides fast heating to relieve pain and improve blood circulation, thereby increasing nutrient flow to help the body heal faster. Effective for nrck and shoulder pain, stiff neck, muscle soreness, fatigue and pinched nerves.

For BackHeat, peel from the middle of the patch, then out to the two sides. For NeckHeat, paste in a V-Shape for back of both shoulders or over one shoulder.

Periods have always been a pain for me and as much as I dread it. we can’t avoid it. At least we can have some relief with the use of these patches to go on with our day or at least, on really bad days, make it a little more bearable.
