I've discovered heaven and it's called BeYou. I have suffered from heavy/painful periods since I was a young teenager. And at the age of 26, I was finally diagnosed with PCOS and Endometriosis.
So, as you can imagine, I have been through a range of different pain killers in my time. From paracetamol and aspirin, acupuncture and lymph massage. Every month I lose a week to crippling pain and discomfort. That is until I discovered BeYou Monthly Patches. My mum saw them mentioned on Twitter and thought it would be worth a go. I was very sceptical. 'How can Menthol and Eucalyptus fix my pain?' But I went along with it, got a pack and gave them a try. From 10mins into putting the first one on, I was singing from the Heavens. Never has anything worked so fast and so well.
I was nervous putting it on, scared I would have a skin reaction, or that I just bought a duff piece of marketing. A plaster strip that smelled of medicine? But holy smokes they work. A slight tingle radiated out from the patch area and deep in the muscle. Getting stronger and stronger. The strong smell of menthol took a bit of getting used too, but it was also super calming. It smelled liked vapour rub and was quite happy with it. Since then, I will not be parted with them. From Ovulation pain. to full on Endo Pain, these babies take the edge off or cover it completely.
I still think they are some sort of magic, like a Harry Potter potion of calm and muscle ease. My periods are scary, they hurt and make me dread the week I will have to endure. But now, they're just a thing that happens in the background. The pain is under control and I can function. My period is now something that just happens, it doesn't take over my life.
Each one tends to last about 6 hours with my pain level, but the tingles are heaven. It's hard to describe how they feel... The nearest I can think of is cooling/tingly shower gel. They get deep into the muscles and calm them. Like ASMR, only in a patch.
I really cannot tell you what a difference this has made to my life. I have lost years to period and ovulation pain. Weeks in bed, unable to move from the pain. And now I just have relief. I don't say this lightly, I don't believe in fads or pushing products. I genuinely want every human experiencing a period, to try these. The gift of relief.
