I know a few ladies on here use a tens machine and say it helps with the pain. Just wondering where you place the pads? I have one with 4 pads and I put the pads just under my belly button, at each side then lower down just under hip bone, not on the bone. Anyway it feels awful like someone is tearing and pulling me inside sort of near my ovaries. I'm not sure if I am putting them in the wrong place or maybe it's just not for me. I have it on the lowest setting and end up turning it off after 5 seconds in agony.
