ThermaCare® Menstrual Pain Therapy
Up to 8 hours of menstrual pain relief.
ThermaCare® Menstrual Pain Therapy HeatWraps send real heat deep into your muscles to relax contractions and relieve period cramps for up to 8 hours. Why do heating pads help cramps? For similar reasons that heat helps many areas in pain: heat stimulates thermoreceptors, which block pain signals to the brain and increases blood circulation to the area. While your grandmother might have used a heating pad for period cramps, ThermaCare® Menstrual Pain Therapy HeatWraps are far more convenient! Unlike an ordinary heating pad for cramps, the ThermaCare® HeatWraps attach under your clothing. They’re thin and discreet enough to wear under clothing on the go or while relaxing.

Try These Tips For Relieving Menstrual Pain
It’s common for women to experience some cramping with their period. It starts a day or two before their period starts and can continue for a few days after it ends. The pain comes from increased prostaglandins, which trigger uterine muscle contractions to help expel the uterine lining.
- Bring the heat: To get some relief from period pain, try placing heat wraps for menstrual cramps on your lower abdomen. Put it below your belly button with the adhesive side against your underwear. Also take a warm shower or bath. Even drinking a warm beverage like tea could help.
- Take a walk: That desire to curl up on the couch may be tempting but hold off just a bit. Regular exercise can help ease period pain.
- Give yourself a massage: Grab some aromatherapy massage oil and use your fingertips to lightly massage circles around your lower belly area.
