Are you about to head out on vacation? Gearing up for a surf? For any of our southern hemisphere gal pals, you’re in the height of your warm weather and you’re looking for options regarding swimming on your period. You’ve come to the right place!
Pads, tampons, or menstrual cups… oh my! If you live an active lifestyle at all, pads just don’t cut it anymore. Thank goodness for modern innovation and advances! There is the tried and true tampon, but do you find their freedom only extends so far? Typically, you’re tied to a couple of hours of activity and you need to change it. Have you thought about a menstrual cup?
A menstrual cup is a reusable silicone menstrual product that holds menses in the vagina and can be worn for up to 12 hours. With a menstrual cup, you truly don’t skip a beat; you don’t have to plan your tropical vacation around that dreaded week a month and you don’t have to think twice about a spontaneous dip!
Can you imagine a world where you didn’t dread your period? Where it didn’t put a hiccup in your activities in any way? Would you believe we’ve actually arrived there?
