If you are considering getting Ovira, I would definitely recommend trying it! I have only used it for one month and while it does not eliminate my pain completely, it did reduce it quite a bit. I only took pain meds one day during my period instead of every day, so to me it was worth it. I am happy to have found an alternative and safe option for pain relief. It was tricky trying to find the right location for the 'love handles' so just be patient with that part and move them around if it doesn't seem to be effective.
