Feminax Ultra (Naproxen 250 mg)

Feminax Ultra is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug or NSAID. This is a prescription medication given to women to provide pain-relief from menstrual cramps during periods.

Feminax Ultra is an effective pain-relief medicine that helps in alleviating pain in various conditions such as headaches, muscle spasms, tendonitis, menstrual cramps, and dental pain. This is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicine that can reduce pain, swelling, and joint stiffness caused by gout attacks, bursitis, and arthritis.

Pain and inflammation can be debilitating in many of the aforementioned conditions and medications like Feminax Ultra help people through their day-to-day activities without trouble.

Feminax Ultra is an effective pain-relief medication used widely by women around the world for relief from painful menstrual cramps. It helps deal with moderate to severe long-term pain.

Feminax Ultra works by restricting the body from producing certain natural substances and hormones that cause pain and inflammation. Feminax Ultra blocks the production of COX enzymes and temporarily prevents the release of the hormone prostaglandin to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.

When you go through menstrual bleeding, your uterus contracts and the lining of the uterus produces the prostaglandin hormone. The prostaglandin hormone is produced in the body in response to injuries and other conditions. This hormone causes pain, swelling, and inflammation in the affected area of your body. In this case, it causes stomach pain during periods. This process is effectively stopped by Feminax Ultra.
