FAQs

Remember in school how you were told that there is no dumb question but then you'd ask a dumb question and then no one would eat with you at lunch? Oh, just us? Well, this is a safe space.

Ask us your smart questions, ask us your dumb questions, ask us a question that you already know the answer to... just don't ask us how long division works.

Ovira is intended for the relief of primary menstrual pain (dysmenorrhoea). She may also help to relieve the pain of secondary menstrual pain due to conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS, adenomyosis or pelvic inflammatory disease.

You sure can. We do not advise the use of Ovira to:

  • anyone with a cardiac pacemaker, implanted defibrillator, or any other implanted metallic or electronic device.
  • anyone currently in the care of a physician or having medical treatment for your pain. If you are, please consult with them before using Ovira.
  • anyone suspected or diagnosed with heart disease or epilepsy

Ovira applies a small electrical current through two compression pads that are placed over nerve roots that supply the sensory fibres to the uterus - these are called dermatomes T10, T11 and T12. Once in place and turned on, the current prevents the pain signals from travelling to the brain, and causes the muscles in the uterine area to relax, resulting in a calming analgesic effect.

The electrical current pulsing through the Love Handles feel like gentle vibrations.

Love Handles can be placed in two areas for relief - on your lower abdomen in the vicinity of your groin and on your lower back. Each Love Handle is to be placed approximately 10cms apart. Check out our Guide for a neat illustration. Only apply stimulation to normal, intact, clean, healthy skin. Never apply stimulation to open wounds or rashes, inflamed or infected areas or skin eruptions.

Our Love Handles are large enough to be effective even if they're not precisely located on all three dermatones. Try one placement first and if after thirty minutes there's no relief, reposition the pads until relief is achieved.

No. Ovira's a good time gal but she's only to be used around the lower abdomen and lower back areas. Application to your neck, chest, thorax or anywhere on the face can be dangerous and have severe repercussions.

Ovira can be used at the first sign of menstrual cramping. She's discreet and can be worn under clothes so you can continue on with your normal activities.

Ovira works instantly, you should feel her effects within one minute of use. A fully charged battery should run for a maximum of eight hours so you can keep her on all day.

Look, everyone knows when we're using Ovira and that's becuse we're gleefully shouting about her sweet relief from the rooftops. But she's small and sits flushed against your body so can be worn under your clothes without anyone knowing.

As much as we love a good bath, please don't use her in or around water.

Sure can - unless you're swimming because water and Ovira don't mix. But she loves keeping active with you. Just be mindful of any fast movements that may cause her to detach, and be careful with excessive sweating as it can impact the stickiness of your Love Handles.

Yes. Ovira helps to relieve pain from conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS, adenomyosis or pelvic inflammatory disease. However, you should always seek medical advice in diagnosing and treating pain.

Ovira is non-invasive, drug-free and therefore the risk of side effects are considered to be low.

Ovira is safe to use and has undergone heavy testing to get approved by all regulating bodies. She is FDA ( Food and Drug Administration) approved, TGA (Therapeutic Goods Australia) registered and CE marked (Certification Europe).

We're sorry Ovira didn't give you the relief you needed. If it's been less than 100 days since purchase, we'll give you a full refund. Head to our returns page to find out more.

Ovira is a TENS machine (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) that is a class 2a medical device. Medical devices can fall under different umbrellas in health insurance including (but not limited to) Health Aids and Appliances, Ancillary or Extras cover. Different providers will have different policies, so here’s a few tips we recommend to give yourself the best chance of claiming a rebate; a) Confirm your level of cover with your provider and how much you can claim b) Ensure Ovira is an accepted brand by your insurance provider c) Ask your provider if you need a letter of recommendation from your doctor. Some covers will reimburse you 100% of Ovira costs. Please send us an email if you have any further questions, or if we can help out at all with your claim.
