Typical Bleeding Patterns and What they Say About You + Take a Poll

I have the wonderful opportunity of speaking with many menstruators about different topics. One that has come up often is the individual bleeding pattern. What’s a bleeding pattern? For many menstruators, there is a certain area on a pad where they typically bleed. These are often characterized by position and include Center-bleeder, side-bleeder, front-bleeder and back-bleeder. There are persons who may have a varying amount of each pattern or those who vary so much that they can’t identify one more than others. More information and what causes directional bleeding below. Post contains affiliate links

Disposable Feminine Products are the New Smoking. Toxins in disposable pads

Toxins in disposable pads

Our skin in the largest organ in our body. It breathes, sweats and also absorbs what we put on it. Toxins in disposable pads are near some of our most sacred and delicate skin. If you haven’t ditched chemically laced disposable pads, you need to immediately.

While we can speculate, many of the toxins in disposable pads are undisclosed by manufacturers. There is a medical device loop hole that disposable pad companies swim in and hide behind. (1) It’s despicable and disappointing.
