What is it?
The OVIRA TENS machine is an electrical stimulation device using current called TENS. TENS stands for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. TENS current is low amp (typically up to 80mA), high frequency (1–150 Hz) and low intensity so it’s not painful but causes a tingling sensation, referred to as paraesthesia.
The device consists of a small rechargeable, battery-powered controller connected via a wire to large gel electrodes. The electrodes stick to your skin either on your tummy or lower back. They send electrical current into your skin and to the nerve fibres responsible for sensation in your abdomen. The electrical current stimulates the nerves and blocks pain signals from reaching the brain, relaxing cramping muscles in your uterus too. The result is fast and much reduced aches and pains before, during and after your period.
You don’t need to use a gel with the device, but you must replace the gels when they lose their stickiness, typically after using them for 2 or so periods.

OVIRA TENS Machine Review Summary
Our tester wishes they’d met this teeny TENS period pain reliever years ago. It’s comfy, stays put, is simple, easy and fast pain relief which lets you get on with your day. Plus, there’s just a little landfill waste from the replacement gels. You can try it for a few periods with a 100-day money-back guarantee too.
Here’s a summary of my test scores, and pros and cons for the OVIRA to help you decide:
Ease of use
A small and discreet, battery-powered pain reliever device which clips securely onto your knickers. Stick the electrodes to your tummy or lower back, and control the intensity with simple up/down controls. Requires replacement gels every couple of months. Feels like a pleasant, tiny tingling & vibrating sensation which quickly lessens painful cramps and aches.
Charge it, stick it, clip it & off you go. Hands-free operation & sticky pads that don’t budge. Wear it for as long as you need, but let the skin under the electrodes breathe every few hours or between uses. Not suitable for use when sleeping. But you can wear it whilst you work, exercise, chill or have fun.
The soothing tingling vibrations relax you fast, and relieve cramps in your abdomen in around 20 minutes. So, you need less pain killing medication, or even none at all. Remove it when you find relief and replace it if you feel the aches return. Very effective & discreet pain relief.
