We tackle the tricky topics around periods, pee and other unpredictable female fluids
Reaching for yet another pack of single-use paper pads, liners or shields brings with it a mixed bag of emotions, including frustration with the inconvenience they cause and anxiety about potential visible leaks. The last thing you need on top of that is guilt about their impact on our environment.Managing heavy periods can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. We asked Kala to share her story...Living with heavy periods can be messy, expensive and often painful. For many women, they’re just a fact of life, with no apparent cause and few treatment options beyond basic pain management techniques and painkillers. But for others, menorrhagia (the medical term for abnormally heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding) can be a sign that you’ve got an underlying health issue, so it’s important to see a doctor if you notice changes in your cycle. We answer your menstruation questions...Our absorbent underwear and nursing pads are designed and built to last, so they’ll save you money in the long term, as well as giving you the peace of mind of knowing you’re protected by high-performance quick-drying and odour-resistant absorbent fabric technology originally created with elite endurance athletes in mind.After a lifetime of pads and tampons, Tia was looking for a more sustainable way of managing her periods when she discovered our washable, reusable period-proof pants. She shares her story...As many as one in ten women live with the debilitating but invisible inflammatory condition endometriosis. It occurs when the endometrial tissue that usually grows inside the uterus each month in preparation for implantation of a fertilised egg, grows outside the uterus instead, for example on the ovaries or bowel. Symptoms vary, but for most women, the most obvious is painful heavy periods. Amelia shares her story...One of the great things about helping people finally find a solution to intensely personal issues they’ve been grappling with alone, is that they are often keen to share their stories to let others know there is hope. We would like to thank everyone who has shared their stories with us. Click on the links below to read more...
