I hope you are well. I’m sorry I’ve been a little absent on here, the last two weeks have been super duper busy, I’ve just finished my diploma!
Anyway, today we’re going to talk about periods and more specifically about period pain. I enjoy talking about periods, it shouldn’t be such a taboo subject and I am glad to see that more and more people feel comfortable discussing them. Periods are natural and healthy, we should never be ashamed about having them nor talking about them!
So, I am reviewing a really interesting device from an Australian brand called Mira Pro. The device was kindly sent to me in exchange for this review.
What is Mira Pro you may ask:
Discrete, wireless and wearable, the Mira Pro uses clinically tested pulse therapy to block pain signals from reaching your brain while simultaneously stimulating the production of endorphins; your body’s natural pain killer. Mira Pro is the immediate, drug-free solution to your period pain. – Via the Mira Pro website
Isn’t that so intriguing! I was really excited to try it out, to see how it feels and most of all, if it really works.
Before trying the device, I did some reading on their website. The most common questions about Mira Pro are:
If I have terrible period cramps, will the device help me?
The answer is: “Yes the Mira Pro can help! The Mira Pro was designed to relieve primary menstrual pain (dysmenorrhoea) but is also effective in relieving secondary menstrual pain arising from conditions such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, fibroids, or PCOS.” – Via the Mira Pro website
How does Mira work?
The answer is: “The Mira uses pulse therapy to send gentle electrical signals into the painful area that stimulate the nerves, preventing them from transmitting pain signals to the brain. Basically, the Mira confuses your body not allowing it to recognise the pain, but rather the electrical pulses.” – Via the Mira Pro website
Is it safe to use?
The answer is: “The Mira Pro is completely safe and non-invasive. The same technology is used to help people during labour and has been studied for decades without any adverse effects. The technology that the Mira utilises is both FDA and TGA approved.
My Experience using Mira Pro
When I first received the device, it wasn’t completely charged. I used my normal iPhone charger with the cable provided with the device and it took about 20 minutes for it to be fully charged. So super easy! When the battery has completely gone flat, it takes around 2 hours to fully charge.
The gel pad was really easy to place and stick on the skin, I placed it right where I usually feel my cramps, which is in my lower tummy where my uterus is. Some people get bad cramps in their lower back, so you can also place the device there.
Once the gel pad was nicely placed on my skin, I attached the device. It was super easy, it just simply clicks in place. I pressed on the « m » button for about 2 seconds for the device to turn on. Once it was on, I felt tiny tingling sensations. It doesn’t hurt at all, doesn’t feel warm nor uncomfortable.
I used it on the first day of my period, which is when I usually get cramps. After about 10 minutes, I already felt quite relieved of the pain, not completely but enough to feel much more comfortable.
After 30 minutes, the device turned off by itself (the blue blinking light stopped) and I didn’t really understand why. I removed the device and placed it again, and I was able to press the « m » button to turn it back on.
I used it on a low intensity setting and it worked really well. There are 5 different modes, where you can modify the intensity of the electrical signals. After about 40 minutes, I turned it off and removed it from my skin. My skin didn’t feel sticky at all after removing the gel pads. After a couple minutes after removing the device, the pain of my cramps had disappeared and didn’t return for a while. Later that day I re-used it for around 20 minutes and after I didn’t have any cramps at all.
During my period I usually only get cramps the first day, so if they’re bad I take an ibuprofen once and that does the trick. I was happy to see that it was similar when I used the device, I only had to use it the first day of my period.
The Mira Pro device is also quite small and discrete, I used it at home when I was just wearing my PJs and it was super convenient.
Overall, I am really happy with the Mira Pro and I definitely see myself keep using it. I liked that the pain relief was almost immediate for me and that I only felt the need to use it on the first day of my period, like I would normally take an ibuprofen. It’s also convenient to travel with because it comes in a little pouch. It’s small, light and discrete which is really great too. It’s easy to use, easy to charge and easy to fall in love with!
Make sure to read all the info on their website before getting one, to make sure it’s the right fit for you (especially if you have certain medical conditions).
Y’all know I only review products that I am genuinely interested in and think would interest you as well! Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried the Mira Pro before, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Thank you so much for reading, have a great day/night and I will talk to you in my next blog post!
All the love,
