A recent study conducted by scientists has pointed out that the combined oral contraceptive pill can relieve pain during menstrual periods.

Lead researcher Dr Ingela Lindh, from Gothenburg University, said: "We found that combined oral contraceptive use reduced dysmenorrhoea by 0.3 units, which means that every third woman went one step down from severe pain to moderate pain, and which meant that they suffered less pain, improved their working ability and there was a decrease in the need for analgesics."
