Relieve Period Pain Effectively

Period: For some lucky women, this is just a monthly routine, but for others it’s a real nuisance. ‘Dysmenorrhoea’, in other words pains and cramps during menstruation, is probably the most common gynecological problem in adolescent and young women and the most frequent cause of absence from school or work.

Many theories have been proposed on the possible causes of dysmenorrhoea, but one seems to currently prevail. The increase of certain substances, such as prostaglandins, causes contractions in the uterus and therefore pain. When these substances fall to ‘normal levels’ the painful symptoms are relieved.

Symptoms may also be due to an anatomic abnormality causing pain, such as endometriosis, ovarian cysts, fibroids, polyps, etc.  

In case the causes of the pain are not functional but organic, treatment must target the cause. This is why anti-inflammatory medication presents an advantage, as it reduces pain until the ‘deeper’ cause is addressed.


But what can we do to relieve pain?

Nurofen Period Pain, available in pharmacies in the form of soft 400 mg capsules, can treat period pain effectively and immediately. The action of the capsules starts within a few minutes after administration and can last up to eight hours. Their active ingredient, ibuprofen, is a substance that ‘keeps’ prostaglandins at low levels, therefore preventing contractions, cramps and pains. In other words, it targets the solution of the problem.


In addition to painkillers, you can also relieve pain in the following ways:

  • Warm shower: Heat is thought to be an appropriate way to soothe and relax the muscles of the uterus. A warm shower, for example, is considered a traditional solution of relieving pain during menstruation.
  • Massage: Relax your muscles by massaging your stomach.
  • Exercise: Swim, walk or cycle.
  • Complementary treatments: For example, use herbal leaf tea such as raspberry or homeopathic treatments.


NUROFEN Period Pain targets the locus of the pain and offers immediate and effective relief from strong contractions in the uterus!
