Good for cramps
Member Name: brady58
Advantages: Help stop cramps
Disadvantages: Quite expensive
I am lucky that I don't really suffer severe cramps and pains every month but like most women I get the odd day when I am on my period where I do suffer some discomfort and having a low threshold for pain especially when I am not feeling my best anyway I usually take something for it.
I used to always but Feminax express for my periods to help me when cramps and pains struck until I saw a documentary on television that showed me just how much of a waste of money they were. Basically all they are is ibuprofen which I can buy in Tesco for only 50p a pack as opposed to £4.00.
Although I swore I wouldn't waste money buying them again cramps struck me once when I was at my sisters and she gave me some Feminax Ultra and I was surprised that as well as helping relieve the pain these ones actually also helped ease the cramps in my stomach. I checked the box and saw that they had a different ingredient and I was impressed enough that I bought myself some.
You take two Feminax Ultra tablets as soon as cramps start and then another one 6 to 8 hours later if needed and then another one every day until the cramps stop.
I find that these really do help with the cramps by reducing the amount of spasms that I have and by really stopping my stomach from hurting so much. If I only have a little pain I stick with ibuprofen but for sore stomach cramps I use these as they are much stronger and better for the actual cramps. They are quite expensive at £4 for a pack of 9 but as I only need to take them occasionally they tend to last me for a month or two.
Like all medicine there are loads of things you should consider before taking Feminax Ultra so make sure and read the enclosed pamphlet to make sure that you are safe to take them.
Summary: Good for cramps
