i just found this super cool reusable menstrual pad that will save us thousands of bucks
apparently an average woman spends about $120/year on pads and tampons and an additional $20/year on medications for cramps and other period side effects. since we menstruate for approximately 40 years, we spend (40 times 140) = $5,600 for our period over our lifetime.
IMAGINE WHAT YOU CAN BUY FOR $5,600?!?!
which is why i turned to menstrual pads. eco-friendly, economical and healthy
also, im saying goodbye to everyone in the public bathroom knowing im on my period
i got the pads here and they have all the info on their website!
I’ve read about diapers, tampon and pads containing toxic chemicals:
“A recent study published in Reproductive Toxicology3 confirms the results of a previous study4 from 2014 demonstrating how the feminine care industry sells products containing harmful chemicals, including pesticides, fragrances, dyes and preservatives.”
So not only are menstrual pads cheaper, they’re also safer for your body!
sis i got this and have been using reusable pads for three years i can tell y’all it’s 100% reliable than your ex telling you hes a changed man, 100% discreet than your ex’s loud chewing and 100% healthier than your toxic relationship
so stop thinking of your ex and start using reusable pads instead
both sis got points but i dont know which point drove me into buying the pad
its probably thinking about what i can buy for $5,600 like thats so overwhelming thats 10% of my college debt right there
I built my stock pile when I was like 19 and have been using them since. Take care of them and they’ll last a long time. Also cups are amazing! Both are way more comfortable imo too! Kind of large investment at first but I haven’t had to buy ANY period products in like 3 years.
How am I 22 and just learning about this
You mean I can save money and the environment?
Ok how are these pads for heavy period ladies? Cuz if the pad absorbs a lot during the day and you’re out and want to change it… like, what do you do with the heavily soaked one??
@dancingismycupoftea i bring two pouches! one is an ordinary (but cute) pouch for the newly washed pads and the other is a waterproof pouch for the used pads. when i get home, i soak the used pads overnight with lukewarm water and soap and wash it next day
I personally use a cup but I use reusable liners and I LOVE them especially for my spotting days!
They can be pricy so it’s a little daunting but so worth it! And they are SO much more comfortable
damn, i didnt know about these!!! seems like a good investment and considering today is my bday @ my sister 👀
lemme just say I bought these after seeing this post and these are AMAZING! The price is worth it because these are quality! I have never felt so breathable before wearing any kind of pad, and these are totally waterproof and collect a lot! 10/10
Hey hey I’ve used a reusable menstrual cup for the last few months now and while it got some getting used to, its super great and easy to use and i cant imagine not using it now :0 And I use reusable liners on lighter days towards the end of my period! Theyre so good and save so much money in the long run
Reblogging for anyone who want to switch to reusable ones!
My sister uses these and she loves them, her daughter also now has her own as well. My sister said that their cramps are basically nonexistent and they said a ton of money plus they’re extremely comfortable￼
They save *so* much money. I bought my first cloth pads in college, before some Tumblr folk were born. I’ve bought a few more over the years, but I still have the old ones. That’s 22 years of use!
I bought several on @wrenb77 ’s recommendation and they re way more comfortable than disposable type, seriously y'all.
even among us is dying too idk
