We’ve pretty much all been victims of the menstrual cramp at one point or another, right? One moment, you’re going about your daily business, when all of a sudden, BAM. You’re out of commission for anywhere from a few seconds to an entire day. And for those women who suffer from unbearable menstrual pain to the point where even going to work is something that seems impossible, a pill that takes a while to start working (and only reduces pain as opposed to eliminating it) or a not-so-discreet heating pad just might not be enough.

Well, guess what? There’s a new invention called Livia that is being marketing as “The Off Switch for Menstrual Pain.” It’s a drug-free little device that, when worn and activated with a touch, “closes the ‘pain gates’ by stimulating the nerves and blocking the pain from passing to the brain.” It also promises to work immediately, unlike pills – whose effects can take a while to kick in. Oh, and it also comes in a variety of cute colors, because why not?
