Menstruation is normal, natural and healthy. Let's celebrate our bodies and our periods instead of hiding from them.

Question with 1 note

devwasnotthere asked: Hey I want to get into cloth pads and I was wondering if you have any recommendations for people starting out. I would be mainly using them at night if that helps. Love your blog :)

Hey! Thanks for the love! :)

I myself have never used cloth pads, but I would say it’s really important to know your flow level. When you’re investing in something like this you want to last, you don’t want to have to deal with leakage or anything like that, especially at night. If you’re using them for night, getting ones for heavy flow is probably the best.

They also usually have a little shrinage after you wash them for the first time, so keep that in mind. You might also want to measure the length of your vulva so that you get an approrpate length pad for youserlf.

You could also buy waterproof blankets if you’re using them for night-Luna sells a great one (not sure if you’re concerned about that but good thing to keep in mind). 

Also, Luna seems to be the best brand and has really affordable prices. :)

Good luck!

the contradiction in such a simple photo makes me love this

This is either a powerful statement or an example of a man who loves his lady every day of the month




Goddamnit.  It was going so well.

My girlfriend found this about 6 weeks ago, unfortunately right AFTER her time of the month passed. So when it came again, I dug this out of my likes and asked her to test it out. She shared it with a couple of friends, and the feedback from all three was exactly the same.
"This really works. It’s not my favorite method, and it is hard to beat the effectiveness of drugs or a heating pad, but it really comes in handy when like you’re in the middle of class, or you’re just in a situation where there’s nothing you can do. Then it’s a really good time to use the pressure point method.”

I’m a trans man who wants a birth control method that gets rid of my periods and doesn’t contain estrogen. Whatcha got for me? →

Someone asked us:

Hi. I’m a trans man, but I can’t afford to go on testosterone yet. My menstrual cycle really bothers me, and I may start having sex with men soon, but the estrogen in birth control pills (and the symptoms that result ‘cuz of that) makes that really, REALLY not an…
