FAQs

Remember in school how you were told that there is no dumb question but then you'd ask a dumb question and then no one would eat with you at lunch? Oh, just us? Well, this is a safe space.

Ask us your smart questions, ask us your dumb questions, ask us a question that you already know the answer to... just don't ask us how long division works.

Ovira is intended for the relief of primary menstrual pain (dysmenorrhoea). She may also help to relieve the pain of secondary menstrual pain due to conditions such as endometriosis, fibroids, PCOS, adenomyosis or pelvic inflammatory disease.

You sure can. We do not advise the use of Ovira to:

  • anyone with a cardiac pacemaker, implanted defibrillator, or any other implanted electronic device.
  • anyone currently in the care of a physician or having medical treatment for your pain. If you are, please consult with them before using Ovira.
  • anyone suspected or diagnosed with heart disease or epilepsy

Ovira is a TENS machine - that’s Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation if you want to get fancy. This means she applies a small electrical current through two compression pads that are placed over nerve roots that supply the sensory fibres to the uterus. Once in place and turned on, the current prevents the pain signals from travelling to the brain, and causes the muscles in the uterine area to relax, resulting in a calming analgesic effect.

The electrical current pulsing through the Love Handles feel like gentle vibrations.

Love Handles can be placed in two areas for relief - on your lower abdomen in the vicinity of your groin and on your lower back. Each Love Handle is to be placed approximately 10cms apart. Only apply stimulation to normal, intact, clean, healthy skin. Never apply stimulation to open wounds or rashes, inflamed or infected areas or skin eruptions. Only apply stimulation to normal, intact, clean, healthy skin. Never apply stimulation to open wounds or rashes, inflamed or infected areas or skin eruptions.

Alright, so we hate to be that person… but make sure your Ovira is turned on: To turn on Ovira, hold down the middle power button for 4 seconds until a white light appears on the device. The light is on and you’re still having no luck? While our Love Handles are large enough to be effective even if they're not precisely located on all three dermatomes, sometimes you might need to make some adjustments. So if after thirty minutes there's no relief, reposition the pads until relief is achieved.

No. While it’s tempting to use Ovira’s magical power on all areas of the body, you should only use her around the lower abdomen and lower back areas. Application to your neck, chest, thorax or anywhere on the face can be dangerous.

Ovira can be used at the first sign of menstrual cramping. She's discreet and can be worn under clothes so you can continue on with your normal activities.

Ovira works instantly and you should feel the vibrations within one minute of use. If you don’t feel pain relief within 30 minutes of use, adjust the intensity levels using the arrow buttons on either side of the power button or adjust the placement of the Love Handles. A fully charged battery should run for a maximum of eight hours so you can keep her on all day.

Look, everyone knows when we're using Ovira because we're gleefully shouting about her sweet relief from the rooftops. But she's small, silent and sits flushed against your body so if you realllyyy want to be discreet about it - she can be worn under your clothes without anyone knowing.

As much as we love a good bath, please don't use her in or around water.

Sure can - unless you're swimming because water and Ovira don't mix. But she loves keeping active with you. Just be mindful of any fast movements that may cause her to detach, and be careful with excessive sweating as it can impact the stickiness of your Love Handles.
