Heating Pads Can Help Menstrual Pain

by Jon Henshaw

Lynn Harris reports in Salon.com about her switch from painkillers to heating pads to help alleviate pain related to menstruation.

At the risk of sounding like a PSA (”Hey, kids! Try getting high on life!”), they are so much better than drugs. Not only do they not dissolve your stomach lining, like the handfuls of Advil I used to take for relief, but they also actually work. They heat up almost instantly, and soothe the pain almost as fast. I go to bed with one on, I sleep through the night, I wake up, it’s still warm. I walk around with one hidden under my clothes, thinking, “Too bad all you poor slobs don’t have a secret toasty little friend like mine!”
