There has been an influx of menstruation technology over the last few years including electronic devices that can stop period pains to period underwear. Here are some of the latest.

They do this by reducing the pain signals going to the spinal cord and brain and stimulating the production of endorphins.

Daye are doing so much more than just launching CBD-infused tampons. They are fundamentally raising the standards and rhetoric around feminine health, disrupting an industry and providing real and useful support and advice.

Livia is a wearable device that provides period pain relief. It uses electric micro-pulses to stop pain and can be felt by attaching the device’s gel pads to the lower abdomen. It can be used throughout the day and wherever the user goes.
