“With my husband’s help” “I used Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound for pains across the small of my back. They bothered me so badly that I could do my work only with my husband’s help. One day we saw the ‘ad’ in our paper telling what Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound is doing for women so I began to take it. It has helped me wonderfully. I am feeling fine, do all my housework and washing for seven in the family. I had been irregular too, and now I am all right.
