Period pain (menstrual pain)
Period pain (menstrual pain) treatment methods in Japan.
Many women experience period pain at the first days of the monthly cycle. Why does it happen? Because of the prostaglandins, a group of physiologically active lipid compounds. The prostaglandins make muscles of the uterus to contract and to compress the blood vessels around the womb. When the blood flow is suppressed, the lack of the oxygen causes the pain.

As for the medical treatment, one cannot treat the reason of the period pain completely, since that is a normal part of the menstrual cycle. But it’s possible to take painkiller to get rid of the pain or to take natural remedies that help to relax the uterus muscles and to make the contractions easier.
In our store you can order medicines against period pains directly from Japan depending on your needs. For the teenager girls, Japanese gynecologists recommend Bufferin Luna, a painkiller that can be used form the age of 7 years. The dosage differs depending on the age, and the medicine is completely safe when taken in the right dosage. For adults, one can choose between Loxonin, Eve and Bufferin. These medications have different active ingredients and, thus, slightly different indications. Loxonin works very quickly and has almost no side effects. Eve is especially recommended for the women suffering from headache and backpain in the first days of the menstrual cycle. Bufferin contains components that have soothing effect on the stomach and intestine.
