I have suffered from extremely painful periods for years now, along with awful menstrual migraines. In the past, I have either just dealt with it (which was getting increasingly harder to do) or popped some sort of an anti-inflammatory to try to ease the pain so I could get through my day. I then started to search around for a natural way to help me through these periods and came across Semaine. I actually did not try it right away because I thought for as bad as my periods were, a natural supplement wouldn't help me and it wouldn't be worth it. I was so wrong! After chatting with a rep online and asking several questions about the product, I finally decided to give it a try. These vitamins have been a life saver for me! Not only have my cramps been greatly reduced, but my headaches have even diminished as well (not totally gone, but instead of 3-4 days of constant migraine pain, I now basically have 1 headache a few days before my period starts, and maybe a mild one on the first day or so). I might have some cramps the first few days, but very mild, sometimes I don't even notice them at all! PLUS, I love the fact that these contain Ashwagandha because it has definitely helped improve my overall mood throughout my period and I feel much more calm and less stressed (even my husband and kids have noticed this as well lol). I am completely happy with this product, it is the only thing that has helped me after years of dealing with extreme pain and discomfort.
