What is Nurofen Period Pain?

Nurofen Period Pain is a painkiller that helps to ease symptoms of period pain, such as menstrual cramps, muscular pain, backache, and headaches and migraines that are caused by your menstrual cycle. Perfect for those who suffer with period pain and are looking for a reliable way to ease their aches and pains.


What causes menstrual cramps?

As a part of your menstrual cycle, your womb sheds its lining, which is what causes your monthly period. When this happens, the walls of your womb contract, helping the lining to shed away. When the muscles of your womb contract, it cuts off the blood and oxygen supply to your womb, causing pain that feels similar to contractions. This is what causes period pain, or menstrual cramps.


How will this product help to ease my menstrual cramps?

Nurofen Period Pain contains the active ingredient ibuprofen, which is a popular painkiller that helps to relieve many different kinds of pain, including period pain. Ibuprofen is part of a group of medicines known as NSAIDs, or Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs. This means that ibuprofen won’t just relieve your pain, but it can help to ease swelling and inflammation too.


How to take Nurofen Period Pain

Take 1 – 2 Nurofen Period Pain capsules with water. Take up to 3 doses a day, as needed, making sure to leave at least 4 hours between each dose. Do not take more than 6 tablets in any 24-hour period.

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.
