While I can’t speak from direct experience, period pains can be pretty terrible. That said, we guys feel the pain too, since the ladies often give us hell when Aunt Flo is visiting. Some women take painkillers to deal with it, but maybe there is a better way. The creators of this IndieGogo project think so.
The idea is to give women a solution that doesn’t involve any chemicals. Livia uses electric pulses to soothe the pain instead. The idea is that Livia will block the pain signals from reaching your brain by “closing the pain gates”. From what I’ve seen, this is definitely something that women would love to try if it works as advertised.
So is it science or BS? We have no idea, but we know that this works by sticking two electrodes on your belly and activating it. For $85 you can find out if it really works, once the device eventually ships, that is.
