Natural Feminine care for Menstruation

Looking back 5 years, I never could have predicted that I would be using natural re-usable menstrual pads. I don’t even know how this happened? I was just innocently surfing the web while looking at eco-friendly stuff and fell upon them. Since starting, I don’t think I’ll ever go back. First off, there are chemicals like bleach and those beads that expand when wet… they may irritate those sensitive areas. Since starting natural, there has never been any irritation. The best, THE BEST thing though is that my period shortened. I used to bleed for 10 days, it just dragged on. Now I only bleed for 3, and it’s not as heavy.

If you want to try eco-pads, the ones I liked the best are willow pads. They are also a bit pricey, but it’s all natural and organic material.

There are other options, some cheaper ones, and some are handmade:

Mama Cloths

Sckoon

Glad Rags

For those who would prefer tampons, there’s the diva cup.

 

If anyone has any suggestions, please leave a comment and I’ll add it to this post. I’ll be updating with new info/products every now and again.
