Period Pain Relief

Order treatment to get rid of painful periods (dysmenorrhoea)

Order treatment to relieve period pain from a brand you can trust. You can choose between a hormonal contraceptive pill, or an anti-inflammatory painkiller called Mefenamic Acid.

You’ll need to complete a short questionnaire and choose which treatment you’d like to take. Once you’ve placed your order, our doctors will review your questionnaire and approve appropriate treatment. 

If you’re not sure what the best treatment for you is, you can message one of our doctors for free advice. For a small fee, you can also arrange a telephone consultation with one of our doctors.

To place an order, fill in a brief questionnaire. One of our doctors will review your order and prescribe a suitable treatment. Existing patients should login first.

Like all medications, the period pain treatments we offer can cause side effects. Side effects can be different for different women, and they can include:

  • Changes in mood
  • Breast pain or tenderness
  • Migraines or headaches
  • Feeling and/or being sick
You can find more info on our page about the side effects of the contraceptive pill.

The treatments we offer for period pain relief are safe and effective for most women. However, treatments that contain oestrogen may not be suitable for everyone.

Non-hormonal treatments, like mefenamic acid and other painkillers, can also help to ease menstrual cramps.

Certain exercises and self-massage techniques can also help to relieve painful period cramps as they happen.
