Period pain is caused by contractions of the uterus or womb. The womb contracts to help shed its delicate lining so a new lining can grow. To help start the contractions the body releases chemicals, called prostaglandins, and it's these chemicals that cause the pain. For the majority of women, period pain is not so severe that it interferes with their daily routine. For some however, period pain can cause a woman to take the day off work or school and shut the door on the rest of the world until the pain stop.

Each capsule contains the active ingredient ibuprofen, which belongs to a group of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
