Periods are so not fun

Menstruals. Period. Aunt Flo. On the rag. That time of the month.  Y’all know where I’m heading with this. Periods have been women’s burden to bear since women have been women.  It’s the subject not talked about--continuing the stigma of taboo topics to keep off the table. NO MORE! Our lady bits need love and care, and who better to give it than you?  Without “her,” procreation would be non-existent, and she wouldn’t be the pleasure palace that she’s known to be. Next time you’re heading out for a tampon run or trying to avoid the next crimson oops through your favorite jeans, check out these 4 feminine product companies that have got your back...or vagina!  
1. Thinx
Thinx Panties are the best

Thinx created a wonder panty that can be used as a substitute for a tampon or pad.  Their claim to fame is that their product is “antimicrobial, moisture-wicking, absorbent and leak-resistant.”  This line of super period panties are available in 6 different cuts and are designed for different flow cycles.  (I know what you’re thinking and let me answer--YES, no leakage. If you’re a heavy bleeder, I’d say double up with a tampon.  YES, it’s thin like wearing regular undies and doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a diaper).  Each panty ranges from $30 and above with discount perks if you purchase more. Thinx makes it their responsibility to bring valuable and unashamed sex, vaginal education, and health and wellness content for all women - check their blog.  Personal side note: A friend recommended this company to all the women in our office, and many of us use their products with extremely great results.  We’re definitely fans!
2.  Cora

Cora is a period-positive company with chic, grown-ass packaging who believes that “that time of the month should never be a source of shame, harm or uncertainty. (Also: excessively pink packaging). And it should never keep a girl from getting her education.”  This social conscious company developed their monthly subscription-based model to bring organic cotton, hypoallergenic, biodegradable and vegan based tampons to households all over the U.S., making it accessible to all women for when Aunt Flo comes to town. Subscriptions starts at $8, and with every subscription, Cora gives back by supporting a month’s supply of pads to a girl in India, so she may stay in school to continue her education.   Did you know most states in the U.S. are applying a luxury tax for feminine products?  Cora takes care of that tax by footing the bill with each online subscription.
3. Lola

LOLA is a company founded by 2 brilliant females who asked a simple question: what exactly goes into a tampon?  It’s from this foundation that they built their brand on respecting the vagina, making a functional tampon with 100% organic cotton, and being completely transparent about what goes into their feminine products.  LOLA is convenient with a monthly subscription that delivers tampons, pads and panty liners right to your door. (Plus, you can get 15% off your first subscription order!) They are also a company that gives back to underprivileged women across the U.S. by sponsoring 100,000 feminine products to low income women through their partnerships.
4. L.

L. built its focus around the “rebellious notion that people everywhere deserve better.”  Bye-bye are the ingredients you can barely pronounce and let alone are putting inside you; L. wants it to be your basic human right to have uncompromising products at your disposal.  Not only are they creating feminine products, but they’ve expanded their line to include condoms as well. L. has a 1-to-1 program where if you purchase their product, they give one back to a female entrepreneur in a developing country.  Best of all, you may be able to find this brand at your local Target - just check the tampon aisle.

Now that you’ve been vag-ucated to find what works for you, let us know if you’ve tried any of these products and what you think of them.
