It is always that times of the month wherein we, ladies, are in so much agony when it comes to dealing with our periods. Early symptoms of menstrual period includes pimple breakout, bloated tummy (and sometimes i think even my face seems bloated/chubby), moody/irritated for no reasons and basically you'll just have this paranoia that you have it already.
Above mentioned are what i usually experience, i am not sure though of the other ladies. :-) What i do is i keep track of my first day and last day to know when the possible day i will be having my monthly period on the next month. Whenever i see drops of red stains, i immediately take pain reliever such as alaxan, dolfenal or mefenamic to avoid suffering from the pain of dysmenorrhea. Before i learned about this, i suffered extreme pain in my abdomen that even my knees and legs weakens simultaneously. Midol was introduced to me but i still feel tremendous pain so i began taking other pain reliever. It works for me that i took the medicine prior to experiencing the pain. Mas mabuti na yung unahan mawala yung pain before pa dumating yung sakit.
One of our worries pa is the sanitary napkin or pads that we use. Of course, we are so dead anxious of the stain, the appearance of the pad and the odor. When i was still young and my mudra due to her thrifty nature settled to low cost napkins had me stayed home or changed pad thrice a day. I am so worried of being embarassed due to stains or what we usually termed us "tagos" here in the Philippines. Add up to our anxiety is the bulkiness of the pad, as much as possible we don't want to other people to notice that we are wearing sanitary napkins right?
Well gone are the days of this bloody anxiety, thanks to New Modess Cottony soft for heavy flow. :-) i just love the fact that unlike other maxi pads that are so thick, this thin maxi pad can absorb the leak and its wings help in securing side leaks. The size of the pad is good enough to cover the front and back leaks. You can hardly feel that you are wearing a sanitary pad because of the comfort. And no need to worry with the odor because the pad itself is scented therefore reducing the bloody odor of our leaks. I am truly loving this pad and i am a fan. So if you are looking for great pads, try New Modess cottony soft, the one in purple/violet packaging.
|see how thin it is but is very dependable when it comes to absorbing the leaks|
