On average, a woman has her period from three to seven days and the average woman menstruates from age 13 until age 51. That means the average woman endures some 456 total periods over 38 years, or roughly 2,280 days with her period — 6.25 years of her life.
Now the age of girls getting their period has been shown as low as age 2. This takes place from all the toxic exposures that moms have from environment. They are exposed to chemicals in the food and beauty products just to name a few.
1. Invest in a Diva cup.
The DivaCup is a reusable, bell-shaped menstrual cup that is worn internally and sits low in the vaginal canal, collecting rather than absorbing your menstrual flow. It eliminates the inconvenience and expense of purchasing disposable pads or tampons. Plastic-free and BPA-free, The DivaCup is made from the highest quality healthcare grade silicone to assure comfort and durability and can safely be worn for up to 12 hours at a time. I purchased mine over a year ago and haven’t made a single trip back to buy any products since then. It’s simple to use even disabled women have given it a shot. The investment is a one time about $39.99 and it will last you up to 10 years with taking good care of it. It comes in two sizes to fit all women.
2. Become in charge of what you’re putting in your body when you make the switch to Lunapads.
Disposable pads and tampons are made primarily of bleached wood pulp or viscose rayon, made from wood cellulose. What makes these products perform so effectively is the use of high tech chemicals such as super-absorbent acrylic polymers (SAPs) surfactant-laced gels and leak-proof plastic backings. The long-term health and environmental impact of these ingredients is contentious and largely unknown, but they pose the risk of cervical cancer, endometriosis, infertility, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, immune system deficiencies, pelvic inflammatory disease, and toxic shock syndrome.
3. Try on a LunaPantie.
Feel at ease with comfortable built in underwear from thongs, boxers and even bikinis! Who said your period meant being in granny panties and stained clothes! Enjoy your flow with ease with any one of the three amazing products and get in touch with your menstrual cycle. Redefine the experience for yourself, which can lead to increased self-knowledge, acceptance, and even empowerment.
