Puberty & Reproductive Period

During this first stage of a woman's life, the menstrual cycle begins. For some women, periods are accompanied by more or less significant inconveniences:

  • pain
  • fatigue
  • constipation
  • bad moods

It is in this context that cold packs placed in the perineum can have a beneficial impact.

Applied to the perineum, the cold will be able to act and impact the entire body. This region of the body is highly vascularized and interacts directly with the circulatory system. The skin is also thinner, which allows the cold to act more effectively.

Different body mechanisms are put in place to protect the body from the cold, including:

  • an acceleration of blood flow to vital organs, which allows the body to eliminate waste or excess hormones more quickly
  • a release of hormones aimed at relaxing the body such as serotonin


After childbirth, cold packs, tailored to the perineal area, can help reduce inflammation and provide welcome relief.

It is a natural option to promote recovery and comfort for postpartum women.

In this specific case, cold application to the perineum has 2 major benefits:

  • relieve pain locally
  • accelerate recovery by increasing blood circulation to the area
