New Relief for Period Pain

Women who suffer from this have usually tried everything available from the simple hot water bottle to prescribed painkillers and some things work some of the time – but not always. A new treatment that is an effective, clinically proven, non-drug and non-heat alternative is to be welcomed to add to the options available.

Menstrual pain is caused by the uterus contracting, and the level of pain suffered from is dictated by the level of prostaglandins in the body, as this is what stimulates the uterus to contract and shed its lining. The Allay Patch has been designed to help the majority of women who suffer discomfort every month but will be invaluable for the 10% or more for whom it can mean excruciating and crippling pain that can temporarily disable them.

While painkillers (or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are usually suggested, they are not always effective for the cramping and have side effects for regular use including the distress of gastric upsets. . Whilst the Allay patch cannot alleviate the severe pain associated with endometriosis, it can reduce a sufferer’s reliance on other, medicated forms of pain relief.

The Allay is a small wafer thin patch that is designed to be worn over the lower abdomen for anything from a few hours, to a few days. It contains a microchip that utilises pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy to stabilise the membrane of the uterus cells and stops the release of pain. This has been used in hospitals and clinics worldwide since the 1930s in treatment of tissue trauma, and the Allay patch has been specifically designed to be a miniaturised and cost-effective version of this technology.

The natural electric balance in the cells is restored and actually helps to accelerate the body’s natural healing process, as it treats pain and swelling at the source.

Recent clinical trials showed that 77.1% of women who tried the Allay patch reported either complete elimination or reduction in their typical menstrual pain and discomfort. The trials concluded that the Allay patch could be offered as a primary, drug-free treatment method for women suffering from moderate menstrual cramping and in more severe cases of dysmenorrhea it could be used alongside other treatment to reduce the duration of, or to eliminate use of, oral medications.

The Allay Patch is £9.95 plus £3.95 P&P and you can find out stockists, or order, by calling 0844 272 5528 or visiting
