Unlike other solutions for menstrual pain, Livia promises to be a drug-free pain management device that literally ‘shocks away’ your cramps through electrical impulses. To use the compact device, you need to attach two gel pads to the skin, mainly the painful area – be it your lower abdomen or back. The unit attached with the gel pads can be clipped on to your trousers or other clothing without being visible to others. So, any one around you won’t be able to figure out that you’re wearing any electrical device underneath your clothing.

Due to the interrupted signals , you brain cannot recognize any sort of pain in body, thus you’re easily relieved from the cramps. The intensity of these impulses can be increased or decreased using the plus/minus buttons on the device.
