Mine is very painful because of the constant cramps 😣
Usually I have to take a lot of painkillers to get somehow throughout the day. It’s not so healthy, but I don’t see any other option to survive those days.
Anyway, finally I did something that I was suppose to do a long time ago. I bought myself a menstrual cup! 😌🌸
Before I have been a bit scared to do this move. Truly I haven’t had no bigger reason for this fear, but sometimes it’s just in our head and it’s just getting bigger 😂🤷🏼♀️
So why this change?
The three obvious aspects are: (1.)I can save money that I would spend every month on tampons or pads,
(2.)I’m more eco friendly,
(3.)It’s more safe for my body than the products mentioned before.
Now, I feel the need to present you some raw facts about everything, that’s about this topic.
So... did you know, that 6% of a tampon is plastic? Tampons also contain chemicals such as dioxin, chlorine and rayon. We have to remember that all of this is getting into our bodys with the tampon and it doesn’t sounds too good...
If 6% is maybe not so tragic, then I have another fun fact about pads this time. 90% of a menstrual pad is crude oil plastic, they also have unnecessary added fragrances. 90% is a lot... and it’s not the end. One conventional pack of pads contains four carrier bags worth of plastic! That’s unbelievable 😶😶😶
To be global: the average user throws away an astonishing 125-150kg of period waste in their life. It’s approximately 11 000 disposable pads/tampons in lifetime 😱
After doing simple math it’s clear that using for example a menstrual cup is much better in many ways.
The cup is made of medical silicon ✅, lasts for about 8-10 years ✅, you don’t have to change it up to 12h (nice to not have to think about it during your day) ✅
Wish me luck with testing 😅, hope it’s going to work out perfect.
I made my decision, now it’s your time to decide what you think is better for your body 😌🌺 #menstrualcup#periodproblems#period#bodycare#changes#sustainable#ecofriendly#savingmoney#selfcare#girlthing#lesswaste#zerowaste
Last friday the 13th on 🍄🍄 I was told by several sources that my #thirdeye was visible!....Then I was cleansed by sage and felt all of the bad spirits dissipate/descend out of me!🤯...The next day I felt completely cleansed. #psilocybin and #psychedelics are the truth! #period! 🙏🏽🙏🏽
Can’t nobody tell me nothing 🤷🏾♀️🔥🔥 thanks @brandonwildcard for catching me in my zone
I’ve got good news & bad news (fella’s keep scrolling, you won’t have any interest in this caption 🙅🏼♀️)
Good news is I got my cycle back 💃🏼!
Bad news is I got my cycle and that 1st one post show is always the WORST 🤬. Hence why you haven’t seen my face much the last few days 😜.
This might be a record for me on timeliness in terms of how quick it came back. Last period was mid June so it was only gone 2 months. Last time I competed in 2017, it was gone for 4+ months.
There’s a trend with my diet and body I’ve noticed over the last couple years, and that is when I reach a specific amount of fats in my diet, magical things start happening. It seems like for me, 60 grams of fat is my sweet spot when it comes to wanting a full head of healthy hair, properly functioning hormones, and any sort of libido 😁 (sorry for the TMI but this stuff is important and is all a factor in the sport).
The last couple weeks I’ve been on an accidental pause with my reverse, and just hanging out in a range until I can find my focus again. I’m going through an emotional roller coaster 🎢 right now trying to work through planning out the IVF 💉🧫 process through the remainder of the year so hitting set macros haven’t been as much of a priority.
Anyways, last week I noticed my fats were higher then normal, averaging closer to 60g+ (I’m technically suppose to be at 50 in my reverse) and BAM she came back. Now if only my head would stop shedding that suddenly #hairthinningprobs 😣
Any of my competitor friends notice significant trends like this in your diet?? Sounds dorky but I love learning my body and watching how it responds to specific scenarios overtime.
P.S. my period or lack of was not a concern to the doctors since we will be doing IVF regardless. If I hadn’t had one by the time we’re planning on doing the egg retrieval they were just going to give me meds to force me to ovulate/have a period at the appointed time.
Did you know that pH levels are very important to your vagina? Normal level is about 3.8 to 4.5. However, when an imbalance in pH occurs, bad bacterias can grow and you can develop irritation, odor, and infections. But don’t worry, Period Proof Cup doesn’t alter your pH levels. #bettertoyou
Rund 40 Jahre verbringen Frauen mit ihrer Periode das sind ca. 3.000 Tage. In unserem ganzen Leben verbrauchen wir rund 15.000 Tampons und Binden.
Eine Alternative wäre eine Menstruationstasse. Sie kostet um die 12€ und ist somit viel günstiger als etliche Monatshygieneartikel. Die Cups haben eine Lebensdauer von bis zu 10 Jahren.
Ich bin jetzt seit über einem Jahr umgestiegen und muss sagen nach dem man das einsetzen etwas geübt hat, klappt es super easy! Auch meine Unterleibschmerzen sind durch die Menstruationstasse quasi verschwunden.
Zudem habe ich gemerkt wie viel Müll ich durch den Umstieg einspare.
Seid ihr schon auf eine Menstruationstasse umgestiegen? ☺
Wie sind eure Erfahrungen?
