Frequently Asked Questions
What causes period pain?
Period pain is caused by contractions of the uterus or womb. The womb contracts to help shed its delicate lining so a new lining can grow. To help start the contractions the body releases chemicals, called prostaglandins, and its these chemicals that cause the pain.
Please see your doctor if your period pains are more severe than normal (this is especially important for older women), if your periods are heavier or less regular than before, or if your period is late.Please always read the label or consult your pharmacist or doctor.
