Things To Keep Handy During Your Period
If you are serious about being able to live off of your period, you will have to be willing to accept just how much you have to bring with you everywhere you go.
You can’t be shy about the fact that you are going through this, so it’s time to get ready for the inevitable. The only way to survive is to keep a lot of stuff on you.
You can’t be ready to go on your period and not own a few boxes of tampons. This is the most obvious thing to take with you when you are on the move, but it’s also the most important.
There are many different kinds of tampons out there, but the two most important things to keep in mind are absorbency and comfort. You don’t want something that is going to be uncomfortable to wear, and you don’t want something that will soak through quickly. Look for tampons that are soft and flexible but strong enough to handle being worn for long periods.
When it comes to pads, the same rules apply as with tampons. You want something comfortable and absorbent but also light and easy to carry around with you. Some of the lightest and most compact pads are also the most comfortable to wear.
It helps keep your flow contained and stops your clothes from getting stained. Most of them are super soft and comfortable to wear, making this a viable option for those who aren’t big on pads.
You can decide to carry wet wipes or tissue paper, but it’s best if you have both. You can use them to cool your face or neck when you feel hot during your periods.
It can’t be said enough times that clean hands are a must to prevent illness during your periods.
It’s no secret that wearing deodorant every day can be a hassle. However, you will need it the most during your periods to help you feel fresh, as your hormones may result in an odor.
This one is a no-brainer; you must keep painkillers on you so you can take them when you are in pain. Whether it’s your period cramps or something else, you need to care for yourself when you are in pain and have no one to help you. However, if you take too many painkillers in a day, it is recommended that you seek help from a doctor.
Tissue paper is not a must, but it can come in handy. You can use it to clean yourself before changing your tampon or pad.
When you are on your period, having some lip balm will help you out a ton. You can use it to soothe your lips and prevent them from getting chapped.
Your period is an extremely normal and natural event, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a hassle. According to WUKA, you can prepare yourself for it by carrying period starter kits in your bag.
