Some time ago the lovely Anne-Marie from No Bull Communications responded to one of my endo pain tweets offering to send one of these for me to try.
Mn8 is a really interesting idea for working with period pains and endometriosis. A drug-free option, it works on magnetic therapy, and is a small, static magnet device which attaches discreetly to your underwear while it works it’s magic (essentially it’s an ACTUAL fanny magnet, which caused Mr Diva and I rather a lot of belly laughs….)
I did trial the Mn8 for around 3 weeks. Longer is recommended for endometriosis ladies, but for me I noticed a distinct correlation with increased mood swings and starting to use it. It has to be said that I think it’s because I have the Mirena Coil in place, so side effects of the coil were amplified; not pleasant. However, as it was definitely emanating a force field of sorts I have no doubt that it is worth a go for anyone really struggling with endo and period pains.
For “normal” period pains wear the Mn8 a couple of days before your period, during, and a couple of days after. For endometriosis you ar recommended to wear continuously.
It is a shame that for me, with the Mirena coil in place, it wasn’t a great option. However, I would absolutely recommend any ladies suffering to give it a go. At just £20 it’s an option you owe it to yourself to try.
If you want to track your symptoms during the trial get my free symptom tracker here.
With thanks to Mn8 and No Bull for sending me the product.
