If you experience menstrual cramps prior to and during your period, you are certainly not alone. Women of all ages struggle with such symptoms surrounding their menstrual cycle. Menstrual cramps are pains in the lower abdomen that range from dull to severe. You may also experience discomfort in your lower back and upper legs. The severity of the cramps varies from woman to woman.
Placing a hot pack on the uterus will increase circulation and blood flow to the uterus, which helps alleviate pain.
An ice pack can also reduce pain due to menstrual cramps. Cold therapy narrows blood vessels, which eases menstrual pain.
Try a THERA°PEARL hot & cold pack, such as the Oval Pack or Round “Pearl” Pack, to melt away menstrual pain. You can tuck the hot & cold pack inside your pants to hold it in place. For discreet pain relief, cover the healing heat pack or therapeutic ice pack with your shirt. The THERA°PEARL Back Wrap has adjustable straps, which allow you to position it on your back or abdomen. All THERA°PEARL hot/cold therapy packs are reusable, and can be warmed in the microwave or chilled in the freezer.
