Questioning the "sanitation" in Menstrual Products
This is very important to know!
I stopped using pads/tampons (i have used both but preferred pads till i started fukkn. Honestly? Prior to that, the idea of something going into my Vagina was disgusting.) ;)
This is our flow. Some women flow heavy, and need the tampon coverage. So safe tampons would be helpful. Is there such a thing as "organic tampons and pads?" I couldn't really answer that question for you. I, like any other true woman, have walked past the "organic sanitary napkin" isle. I see their "organic" labeling and assume its like all other "organic" items. Simply means it contains organisms, that doesn't mean it is safe, healthy or clean to use.
For my Menstrual Care Routine, I use the Diva Cup and Cloth Pads. I have an idea for a different type of Menstrual Care Item for real women. (Coming soon) Because we are all treated as merely cattle in this patriarchy, women are expected to perform as men, behave and react as men, think like men, thus manage their "womanly mess" in ways that keep it all hidden. Even open discussions about women's Bodies and its functions is cause for "lesbian" accusations to be thrown about. It always ends divisive..
How can we be more mindful about our cycles? What ways can we both be body conscious as well earth conscious?
