Dysmenorrhoea (Period Pain) affects 40-90% of women. Many women find their lives disrupted by the level and intensity of pain they endure. Often keeping them off from work or school. Secondary menstrual pain is further caused by conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids or pelvic inflammatory disease.
The Ova Period Pain Reliever unit applies a minute electric current through the placement of two electrode patches on the lower abdomen, thus enabling muscles in the uterine area to relax.
You would be able to maintain an active lifestyle while wearing this discreet unit under your clothing, which will provide you with continuous, drug-free menstrual pain relief.
