What is Feminax Express?

Feminax Express helps to ease pain caused by 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.


What is period pain?

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.


How will this product help to ease my period pain?

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 several other everyday ailments.


Can Feminax be used to relieve other kinds of pain?

Although Feminax Express is perfect for relieving period pain, it can also be used to ease many other kinds of pain. Some of the other aches and pains you can use this product for include:

  • Rheumatic pain
  • Muscular pain
  • A backache
  • Neuralgia (nerve pain)
  • Dental pain
  • A headache
  • A migraine
  • Fever or high temperature

Sometimes when you take painkillers you find that although they make your headache, backache, or whatever your aches and pains you’re trying to treat a bit better, they don’t quite do the job.

This is when you might consider picking up another painkiller to try to kick that pain to the curb. But how do you know if this is safe? Can you take more than one painkiller at once?

If you’ve ever looked into your medicine cabinet and asked yourself one of these questions then you’ve come to the right place.
