Welcome to ohne, where your experience is our experience.
First thing’s first: whatever symptoms you’re experiencing are valid and deserve attention. No, you’re not over-exaggerating or blowing things out of proportion. What you experience is real, and chances are that thousands of other people are struggling through the very same symptoms as you. A YouGov study found that 80% of women who currently or have previously menstruated are living with unresolved symptoms related to their periods or menstrual cycles — that's a staggering number that highlights just how severe the gender health gap is. But what exactly are these symptoms, and what can be done when they reach a level that goes beyond our idea of “normal”?
This can range from mild cramps to severe, incapacitating pain that makes it difficult to go about your normal routine. Painkillers can help, but they don't always provide complete relief. In some cases, the pain may be a sign of an underlying health issue, such as endometriosis or uterine fibroids. We always advise to first speak with your healthcare provider to rule out any serious underlying conditions. If you’re looking for all-natural relief, explore some of our most loved remedies here.
Menorrhagia, or heavy menstrual bleeding, is another common chronic period symptom. While it's normal for periods to vary in terms of the amount of blood flow, extremely heavy bleeding can be a sign of a more serious problem. Again, the first step is to speak with your doctor to figure out what could be causing the excessive bleeding. Oftentimes, there’s no deeper underlying issue, yet the symptom can be exhausting and disruptive to daily life. Consider adding iron supplements to your period care routine to boost energy levels and replenish lost minerals.

"Loved the smells and the sense of comfort as soon as I put the patch on! Top tip: Put it on before your cramps really kick in, and it will help promote a sense of calm around the discomfort. Felt very cosy using this patch and loved that I could take it with me if I had to go into the office!"
