Once a month, a large part of the population is struck down by stomach cramps.

Like an unwanted gift, they cause us internal despair but we get on with it through grimaced teeth.

A part of life, menstrual cramps are a pain – both literally and figuratively.

However, after experiencing a few, you get to know what works to ease the discomfort.

For some, it’s painkillers and sleep, for others it’s lying on your stomach eating chocolate and watching A Cinderella Story.

Then there are those who wholly depend on hot water bottles.

Warmth and comfort wrapped up in one, a hot water bottle can ease the pain like no other.

And we think we have found the best option yet.

A particular hot water bottle has been doing the rounds on TikTok and we can see why.

User @smallex4ft11 brought the hero product to our attention in a clip where she models the genius koala hot water pouch.

‘On this latest episode of things Alex bought from Amazon that she didn’t really need but she definitely did need; a hot water bottle pouch,’ she tells her followers.

‘Look how cute this is, £14 for the mini hot water bottle, the pouch, which you can strap anywhere. If you’ve got back pains strap it on your back.

‘I’ve got cramps so I strapped to here, my hands are free. I can eat my pasta and it came with two hot water bottle cases as well, in case I don’t feel like having a cute little pouch and I wanna hold it.

‘I can do that. Life is great.’

Since being posted the video has garnered over 4.3 million views and a host of comments praising her choice.

‘You’re telling me that I’ve been shoving them in my PJ trousers forever and these exist,’ commented one viewer.

‘Oh my god this is going to help my chronic pain so much,’ added another.

The hot water bottle can be purchased from Amazon for £23.58 and by the sounds of it, is a solid investment.
