For a very long time I had a very difficult time with my menstruation. I utterly dreaded 'that time of the month'. I have previously spoken about this and I could go on, however I'm no longer in that space and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my menstruation.
It all started with what I was inserting into my body and the bad choices I've made over the years...
Pesticide residue, parabens and phthalates linked to hormone disruption, antibacterial chemicals like triclosan, styrene and chloroform, bleach to whiten, glue to attach the string and artificial fragrance...
As you read the list of what you are putting into your body each month, how does it you make you feel? How does your Yoni feel? There is an alternative.
Most menstrual cups hold three time more fluid than a regular tampon or pad.
Period Pants give me the confidence I need when out and about all day. On my heavy days and nights I wear them alongside my cup.
Both of these products used together (for heavy days) or on their own have helped me shift the dislike I had for my period.
