In honor of women’s month it’s my duty to share this. If you or someone you love has a vagina please pay attention because this might help a vagina.
It happens. One day you get a crime scene in your pants. White pants if mother nature is being extremely petty, (Black if Jesus takes the wheel). Sometimes those few days leading up to it are fine and sometimes you’re emotional. Double emotional if you’re a Cancer (zodiac) like me. I FEEL EVERYTHING. I eat almost everything. Bread. More bread. Fcuk gluten. It tastes so good. And then you check your cycle tracking up (p.s. if you’re not tracking your cycle I definitely recommend it). I use this. You can track how you feel, symptoms, your boo boo. We grown, energy, sexual activity etc.
Okay got off track there. Okay, so as an underage civilian you get your cycle and feel like everyone around you knows. Your mom is excited for you. For why? At the time this occurred my mother was out of the country and I was home with my grandfather. So the only thing I could find was the crunchiest thickest Always pad ever. I must’ve died a thousand deaths that Sunday afternoon. Then I figured if I lay straight it would have nowhere to go. Lol. Don’t judge me. Judge your mother. It didn’t work. For obvious reasons.
You’re basically given a box of loud ass pads to wear. All you know is that this thing is supposed to soak up everything. Whatever is in that thing is supposed to save you from embarrassment of bleeding on yourself. But mom, grandpa or whoever raised you never told you, or even knows what chemicals are inside feminine products.
Have you ever thought about it?
Is it anything you’ve ever questioned before?
Most likely, no.
So on behalf of your vagina I wanted to present an alternative. One ingredient for one vagina. Cotton.
Here are 3 reasons to switch to organic tampons
1. Companies aren’t compelled to disclose the chemicals they use in pads or tampons.
2. Your body is absorbing those chemicals.
3. It’s getting harder for women who are trying to conceive (TTC)
It bugs me that it took me being overweight to start questioning things around me. They’re so many young women with reproductive issues who appear healthy. So many women TTC and their vaginas are like high on tampon fumes. Okay, I don’t know if they’re high but they’re getting exposed 5 days a month. That adds up.
Here are some brands that sell organic feminine products. You can buy them at Amazon, Sprouts, Target, Whole Foods etc
I use Natracare. It’s been a little of two years now since I’ve made the switch to using organic feminine products for my cycle. They work THE SAME. I promise you. Would an internet stranger lie to you? Not this one. Wouldn’t you rather a happy vagina that’s not exposed to a lot of chemicals? I hope this gets you thinking about what you put in and on your body and hopefully on the road to a healthier you!

P.S.S. – This might surprise you, but I’m not a medical expert. So please use your Googles to do your own research and consult with a health expert about your health. I ask mine A LOT of questions! Seriously. I asked my physical therapist to check me for rectus diastasis (I watch a lot of surgeries on Snapchat).
