We are so sorry to hear that you didn't feel better after your first time using Semaine. Most of our users do feel the benefit after their first period, but our bodies are all different and respond in unique ways. Even if you didn't have any reduction in pain, the ingredients in Semaine are still helping support your body through your period by reducing inflammation.
We've had several users who have noticed a dramatic difference after 2-4 cycles. We know it's difficult to track your period, so we would recommend starting 2 pills a day 4 days before your period might start, and then increasing the dosage to twice to three times a day once your period starts. That way, you are getting on top of the inflammation (at least in a smaller dose) before your symptoms kick in.
We know from personal experience how hard it is to have your hopes up when looking for pain relief. We are rooting for you, and hope that this next month will be so much easier.
