I suffer from heavy periods, from having multiple fibroids around my uterus. I have heavy cramps and terrible bloating. There are days where I don't feel like getting out of bed and feel sick. I would take Midol or take 4 Ibuprofen and over time it just didn't seem to be working. My husband actually came across the article about the Cycle Soother patches. He knows how much I've suffered through these times. I'll put the patches on and I forget they're on me. They really have been a life saver! I get better relief from the patches than from Midol and Ibuprofen. The Midol can even give me really bad anxiety and the patches don't do that to me. I would definitely give the patches 5 stars or more. So, thank you!
The cycle soother really helped to numb my cramps. So happy I had them handy - I was able to go on with the day!
These are the only product that helps. I tried everything from heating pads to cinnamon pills and none of them work. I put the patch on and everything is gone! I am so happy with this product. It is definitely one of the best purchases I ever made.
I get very bloated on the first couple of days of my period and have a general "bearing down" or heavy feeling. I put on two of your patches to see if they'd work.
Firstly, I absolutely adore the lemongrass scent. Gorgeous! Then later on I forgot I was wearing the patches but realized that heavy feeling had disappeared completely. And I was significantly less bloated. So it's safe to say they definitely worked.
Well done on creating such a fab product. I will definitely buy again!
I have recommended the Hummingway patches to all my girlfriends. I have pretty significant cramps that would impact 1-2 days/month. Using 2 patches at a time, I had zero cramps or bloating and was able to function normally with no pain! I did not need any ibuprofen, which I used to need 4 at a time. I highly recommend and will use every month!
For years I have suffered with debilitating pain, and was diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis. I was finally able to get the treatment I needed this summer, with an amazing doctor. I still have cramps from time to time, and the patches helped me so much. I am all for natural pain relief, and loved this product. Thank you Hummingway!!
I am already using my first set of patches. They work great, I have to say. I haven't had to take Midol and the pain has gone down from a 5 to a 1. Thank you so much!
This is my second time ordering the Cycle Soother. It has truly changed the entire trajectory of my periods. While I used to have to miss school because of my cramps, now I am able to go to class without needing to bring a huge hot water bottle with me for relief. I dreaded for a long time how I would deal with having cramps in college, and because of the Cycle Soother, I have had a much easier time than I would have ever imagined possible. It's also a plus that I don't feel as sluggish as I normally do when I use the patches. Thank you and Hummingway for creating this.
I loved using the patch! Been struggling with painful periods for a while - one of the reasons why I’m so passionate about the root cause approach instead of just medicating! The patch was helpful in soothing and minimizing the pain!
I'm expecting my second pack this week! They have helped so much with bloating and I think even reducing the severity/ length a little! Thank you so much!
I love it so much! This is about to be my second time using the Cycle Soother. I have secondary dysmenorrhea and it’s so painful that I can’t go to work. Now I can do normal things and not stay in bed all day. Also helped with bloating which is a plus.
SO GOOD. Just used it this week. Only put one on and not even kidding- the side it wasn’t on, I felt cramps/ovary pain on that side. But not the one with the patch.
Okay, so I know your patches are meant for period cramp pain. BUT, I have endometriosis, which causes a good amount of pain for me around ovulation and between ovulation and my period. Yesterday, I had a piercing pain in my left side, where I know the endo is predominantly located and worse. I used a patch where the pain was occurring and within about an hour I noticed a pretty dramatic difference. These things are a true miracle.
Wow Ladies, I was very skeptical about the product but decided to give it a try. A blessing I did - I never felt this comfortable in my skin during the first days of my period without taking any pain meds! I recommended this highly to all my friends and made sure to order more! Thank you for everything you girls do!
There have been very few things that have helped relieve cramps and aches throughout the years, and I'm so happy that I was introduced to the Cycle Soother. I use one patch before I start my morning with a work out and it lasts me throughout the day.
I have used the Cycle Soother patches through two cycles, and am very pleased with the results. Upon experiencing menstrual cramps, I apply the patch to the uterine area and within a short while, am relieved and free of pain. Highly recommend for anyone tired of painful cramps!
I recommend removing the patch in the shower for easy removal.
It really helped with bloating and my cramps were minimal! I also really liked how inconspicuous it is on the body - I could barely feel it.
I can't believe it, my period pain has been a problem all my life. I put two patches on before bed when I had a feeling my pains would keep me awake. And I slept through the night. That rarely happens when I'm on my period.
I used the patches the night before my period and I woke up feeling amazing. I haven’t felt this normal/not bloated in months. I still had it on during my morning workout and it stayed on even during my workout and after my shower!
Living and working in a high rise in a big city, I'm constantly being exposed to pollution and toxins so it's refreshing to use a product that has simple and clean ingredients. Not only is this product natural, but it is inconspicuous and drastically reduces the amount of cramping and bloating I have, allowing me to fully engage in my life.
I started using it the day before my cycle started as my cramps typically start then. I didn't have to take an NSAID, which I usually do. It stayed on through workouts, showers, and bubble baths. Very impressed!
It only took ten to fifteen minutes after putting on the patches before I felt well enough to move around without wincing, and then another ten minutes before I felt completely normal.
I have debilitating cramps and nothing has ever really worked for me. These patches help more than anything I’ve tried. I love the ingredients too! The lemongrass smell is so calming!
I am absolutely IN LOVE with The Cycle Soother. I don’t know about you, but my period absolutely kicks my ass every single month! Ever since I’ve started using The Cycle Soother, it helps me get thru that dreaded week much easier! I can still attend yoga, hit the gym, and enjoy girls night with my friends instead of rolling around in bed, in pain like I used to; and there’s nothing better than knowing the ingredients are all natural!
I’m so thankful that I found a natural solution to ease my monthly discomfort. Works better than anything else on the market. Definitely a customer for life!
Obsessed with the lemongrass scent. These patches helped soothe my cramps. No more Midol for me! I noticed it helped with my bloating too!
I’ve used the patch a couple of times now! I love putting them on as I feel like I’m using natural relief as opposed to Advil. I usually get really bad cramps before and during my period likely due to endometriosis. I usually don’t sleep on the first night of my period from the pain, with the patch I fell asleep quickly and did not wake up the whole night. The next morning I was shocked that I had such a good nights sleep.
Over to those making Hummingway part of their Whole Cycle Wellness™ ritual.
“These patches have been life-changing when it comes to the menstrual bloating and cramps that I have experienced for years on my cycle. I have used the patches for two of my cycles at this point and can wholeheartedly say that I personally felt a significant decrease in both my bloating and cramping. I am beyond grateful to finally have a product like this on the market!”
