Menstruation is a natural aspect of women’s lives. For some women however, it comes with the worst kind of pain : Dysmenorrhea. Struggling with this before and during menstruation can be very limiting.
Pain is felt in the lower abdomen. Some women also feel pain in the lower back. It is often accompanied by headache, fatigue, bloating, irritability.
Dysmenorrhea is caused by muscle contractions in the uterus and surrounding organs. These contractions are natural in the menstrual cycle. The uterine muscles contract to help the surplus lining of the uterus detach from the uterine wall. The pain can also be made worse by other factors including:
Deficiency of essential fatty acids
Vitamin B6 deficiency

Buscopan® Venus is indicated for women suffering from stronger abdominal pain and discomfort due to dysmenorrhea.
Buscopan® Venus has a unique dual action formula: it effectively takes away the cause of the pain because of its muscle-relaxing effect, acting only where the pain occurs – in the abdomen. And because of the analgesic, its effects start soon after you take it.
Buscopan® Venus can be taken by girls 12 years old and up. It should not be taken over prolonged period of time (for more than 3 days) without a prescription from the physician.
The total daily dose should not exceed 6 tablets.
The tablets should not be chewed, but swallowed in whole with a sufficient amount of water.
