Period Pain (Dysmenorrhoea) is a widespread female problem which affects 40-90% of women. Period pain can have a real impact on quality of life, leading to absences from work and school.
The Ova+ Period Pain Reliever offers a drug-free pain relief option from period pain and the pain of secondary menstrual pain due to conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids or pelvic inflammatory disease
The unit applies a small electric current through two electrode patches placed on the lower abdomen. This causes muscles in the uterine area to relax, leaving a calming analgesic effect.
This small and convenient unit can be worn all day under clothing to provide safe, continuous, drug-free period pain relief whilst maintaining a normal, active lifestyle.
- Clinically Proven – Trials carried out using the Ova+ have identified that TENS is very effective at treating period pain. TENS reduces the cramping which is caused by reduced blood flow to the muscles. Results of the trial illustrated that the Ova+ did not present any side effects, such as nausea and drowsiness, commonly associated with analgesia and other pain relief drugs.
- Endometriosis Pain Relief – Treatment for endometriosis consists of non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs or the oral contraceptive pill, all of which work by reducing the activity of the uterine muscle. The Ova+ uses TENS which, rather than reducing uterine muscle activity, works by altering the body’s ability both to receive and to perceive pain signals. Endometriosis sufferers feel that the Ova+ takes the edge off the pain and makes life more tolerable.
- Long-life Rechargeable Battery – The Ova+ has a long-life rechargeable battery which can be charged via USB to enable quicker, more convenient charging without the use of a mains adaptor.
