Rethinking Periods: Products Tackling The Taboo
*Warning* this contains straight-up period-talk
So periods are inconvenient and uncomfortable. Fact. Some days it's easy-breezy and you'll be pain free, your flow will be fine, your tampons fit just right and you don't over-think it.
Other days, you'll wear a pad that comes unstuck and moves around, meaning you leak into yet another pair of knickers. You'll wear a tampon that insists on nudging its way back out again, leaving you uncomfortable. Or maybe your moon-cup decides to dislodge and your emergency supply of wet wipes are in your other bag, great. You reach the end of your period with a 'hoorah' (or so you think) only to kick yourself when that last bit of blood takes you by surprise and you wave goodbye to that lovely new pair of panties - ANNOYING.
