Gifts are usually a good except when they come monthly from our not so favorite gal pal Ms. Mother Nature. Out of curiosity, I googled the average number of cycles a woman has in her lifetime I was astonished to see a range of 350-450, WHAT. The older we get, the better we are at dealing with our cycles. Let’s chat about that annoying part of womanhood and a few products that help me get through.There have been times I wished women could have an automatic life pause when Flow comes for a visit, but we know things don’t work that way. Periods can leave us in pain, irritable bloated and just out of whack. I first got my menstrual cycle when I was nine years old. Yes, you read that correct 9, can you imagine. I’m now in my 30’s, so I’ve had plenty of time to figure this out. I have my Aunt Flow survival kit down to a science and these few products help keep me comfortable, calm, and pain-free when she’s trying to interrupt my life.
