The Dangers Of Using Felvin For Menstrual Pains

Share post

Wazobia tossed and turned on her king sized bed. She was so restless and she felt angry. Grabbing her phone, she saw that it was 2am. She hadn’t slept much throughout the night. Thoughts of how busy she would be in the office today was like a weight on her mind. What could be wrong with her?

She closed her eyes once more and tried to shut down her wandering mind, to no avail. Worse still, there was a niggling discomfort on her abdomen. It’s been there for hours and was becoming a cause for concern. Maybe it’s the worms, she thought as she silently rubbed it.

She opened her eyes and realized that it was dawn already. Frantically reaching for her phone, she saw that it was 6am already.

Shit! She swore as she put aside her sea of blue sheets and duvet; and rushed to climb down her mountainous bed.

She halted for a second… what’s that red doing on my blue waves? Carefully inspecting it, she discovered…

Blood stain!

At first, she was a bit disoriented. She wasn’t expecting it till the day after tomorrow. Recalling her day’s activities, she hissed deeply.

While on her knees, she sprang for her little cabinet by the side of the bed. She needed her magic pill to deal with the increasing cramps.

Can today get any better? She thought angrily. She couldn’t find her pills. Now she had to endure till she got out of the house.

Quickly saying, ‘thank you Jesus’, she rushed out of the bedroom to have her bath. She’ll have to wash the bed sheets after work. Time wasn’t on her side. She knew how painful her cramps could be.

30 minutes later, she was almost in tears as she dashed out of her car to the pharmacy. She got the Felvin and dashed back to the car. Uncapping a bottled water, she popped 2 capsules inside her mouth and swallowed.

Still in the parking lot, she let herself relax for few minutes so that the pills would start working.

Satisfied, she heaved a sigh of relief. Her Felvin always worked like magic, now she could work today without any hindrances.


Getting home at the end of the day, she sighed contentedly. She had a gloriously stressful day. Her tampon must be filled by now, she thought. Her shock came when she saw only a small patch of stain. What could be going on? She usually had heavy flows on the first day, what could have gone wrong?


Are you a lady and you’re on this boat? This post is for you…

 We know how painful menstrual cramps could be for some of us. The above story clearly portray what most women have to go through every month of every year until menopause.

Some women have resolved to keep taking pills to escape the pain without checking for side effects.

Aside from the side effects of taking most pills, Felvin has a tendency to reduce or stop menstrual flow.

After observing this, I consulted several sources and these were my findings…

  • Felvin reduces menstrual pains by hindering the process that brings about the pain during menstruation.
  • It reduces the flow because it lowers the production of certain chemicals (prostaglandins) which make the womb contract and release more blood out of the womb. So, it is expected that one may have a reduction in flow after using felvin.

You will agree with me that this should be a huge NO for every lady so as to avoid complications when you’re trying to conceive. Below are alternative remedies to help with menstrual pain.


  1. Exercise frequently:

 Studies have found that physical activity may ease the pain of menstrual cramps.

  • Using Heat:

Soaking in a hot bath or using a heating pad, hot water bottle or placing a heated towel on your lower abdomen may ease menstrual cramps.

  • Drink water:

Keep yourself hydrated with water. If you can’t drink plain water, you can infuse it with fruits like cucumber, etc for a better taste. Remember water isn’t just good for this, it’s also essential for your general health.

  • Avoid sugar or any processed food or drink containing sugar
  • Acupuncture/Acupressure: An acupuncturist can use needles to help reduce pains. Study articles or meet with professionals to help with this kind of therapy.  Applying pressure to key points on the back, abdomen, feet, and the fleshy part between your thumb and index finger can be effective treatments for pain.
  • Sleep:

Do you notice that when you’re asleep while having    cramps, you hardly feel any pain? Good sleep hygiene is an effective way to achieve this. Avoid the TV, phone and other screens just before bed time. Listen to soothing music if you’re a fan.

While doing all these to help with the cramps, if you notice anything extraordinary about your flow, you should see a doctor for better explanation and possible treatment.

I hope this helped?
