The tale we’re all familiar with, at least all the girls are, goes something like this. Once upon a time, there was a girl who loved braiding her hair, wearing pretty dresses and playing with her friends. Then one day, she spots blood on her, and with a panic-stricken look on her face, she confronts her mother for some answers. Her mother just hands her a sanitary pad and explains to her the change that females go through, right from the changes taking place in the uterus to how it affects the body. However, what she is unable to explain is the pain that some of the girls have to go through.
After the initial talk with her mother, the girl (not-so-little-anymore) dreads those five days of the month where she has to silently suffer through the pain. She stocks up on chocolates, ice-cream, and chips, everything and anything that she knows she might crave for while she’s in the middle of her mushy movie marathon.
Wait a minute, does this sound like something that you would do? Because it sure reminds me of my PMS days. We all know that periods aren’t easy, not even for the men around us. And if the cramps and mood swings weren’t bad enough, some girls also experience bloating and bowel issues.
Some girls are lucky because they go through their periods minus the pain. But does that mean the others can’t do anything about the cramps? Every time my mother saw me writhing in pain or curled up on the sofa, out came her list of remedies that she suggests I try, and over the years, I’ve tried them all – from pressing a hot water bottle over my abdomen to drinking tea (chamomile or ginger). And they haven’t always worked in my favor.
While there are over-the-counter pills that are meant to reduce the pain, in the long term, they might have side effects. But times, they are a-changin, there’s a product in town that claims to help you through the awful period cramps.
Sirona Feminine Pain Relief Patches
Now you definitely have a lot of questions, the first being – do they work? Before I get to that, let me tell you that these patches are completely herbal. They contain menthol and eucalyptus oil which help provide instant relief from pain, inflammation, and gastrointestinal difficulties.
My friend recommended this product when I was in the middle of cribbing about how there was nothing that could help me get rid of the pain or even make it bearable. Though reluctant at first, I ended up purchasing one since I had tried so many things before, what harm could one more remedy do.
The patch is easy to use, just apply it to your back or lower abdomen. After a few minutes, I felt a cooling sensation, and then a warm feeling followed. It certainly helped reduce the pain and the entire day went by without much discomfort. The patches do not interfere with your daily routine and are hidden under your shirt or tee. Also, the patches are herbal and do not need to be taken orally which is why there is really no harm in trying them.
The next time you’re in pain, grab a Sirona Feminine Pain Relief Patch and let me know if they worked for you the way they did for me. So the next time “Aunt Flo” decides to pay her monthly visit, tell her that you’re ready for her, and hit her back with your secret weapon.
