Feminax Express helps to ease pain caused my menstrual cramps, otherwise known as period pain. If period pain makes your time of the month unbearable, Feminax Express can help to ease your pain quickly so you can get on with your day.
Period pain, or menstrual cramps, are muscle cramps that happen as a part of your menstrual cycle. They usually happen in your stomach but can spread to your back and thighs. When your womb prepares for your period, it sheds its lining by contracting vigorously. When this happens, it causes painful spasms to shoot through your stomach muscles, in a way that is similar to contractions.
Feminax Express contains the active ingredient ibuprofen lysine, which is the lysine salt of ibuprofen. Ibuprofen is part of a group of medicines known as Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, or NSAIDs, which means that it relieves pain while also helping to reduce fever and swelling. This makes Feminax Express perfect to relieve menstrual cramps and a number of other everyday ailments.
