Reusable Menstrual Pad Starter Set Giveaway from Pink Lemonade Shop!
Switching to reusable menstrual pads has been one of the smartest things I’ve done! In fact, I wish I switched sooner! While initially worried about handling my own blood, I started off with a few pads for light days and before I knew it…I had a whole stash. I haven’t looked back! Once you ditch plastic menstrual pads and move to cloth, I don’t believe you go back. The comfort, breathability and fun prints are just a few of the perks.
Here’s your chance to win a 3-pad starter set in surprise prints by Pink Lemonade Shop! My favorite pad shop!
Why I don’t recommend the Aneer cup, and others like it
The reusable menstrual cup market is exploding. While menstrual cups have been around for a long time, inventions like the internet and smart phones are helping to spread the word about these innovative, life-changing eco-friendly products.
However, buywer beware.
While there are many reputable menstrual cup brands on the market, there are just as many manufacturers who see this as an opportunity to make fast money. These companies do not adhere to the same quality standards and are reeling menstruators in left and right to make a quick buck.
Your Vagina is Not a Gaping Black Hole
I have to get something off my chest. I understand period stigma, that perhaps we are not as forward as we’d like to think with equality…but vagina stigma has to stop. Now. Your vagina is not a gaping black hole made large by sex, tampons, menstrual cups or other insertion.
Here’s what it is and why you may think it’s a gaping tunnel fit for a commuter train.
Welcome to The Green Vagina’s Giveaway!
Recently, I went to PERIOD CON a gathering for menstrual advocates. I had a great time and got an amazing swag bag complete with a Diva Size 1 and a Panty Liner sample from GladRags!

10 Signs You’re a Menstrual Cup User
How can you tell if someone is a reusable menstrual cup user? Don’t worry…they’ll tell you! There are certain conveniences and rituals menstrual cup users engage in and if you know what to look for, you can tell a menstrual cup user a mile away! Here are 10 signs you’re a menstrual cup user:
MIU Cup Review
The MIU cup, reusable menstrual cup, is sleek, easy to use and comfortable. I received product samples to test out and like all of the products you see here, I actually put them to use and share my feedback! Did it leak or move around? How was the fit? Details below!
Yuuki Cup Review
When I originally sought out this menstrual cup, to be honest, it’s because I wanted the Yuuki cup rainbow. It has to be the best looking cup on the market and I crossed my fingers that it worked with my body. I collected my affiliate dollars and ordered this set from Amazon. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but when the mail carrier rang my doorbell and said “I need you to sign for a package from the Czech Republic” I nearly clicked my heels. Take a look below and shop my affiliates.
XO Flo Review
The XO Flo Menstrual Cup is making waves. Why? It’s sleek, smooth and high-capacity! In addition, as you’ll see below, when placed next to many popular brands you can see that it’s rim and diameter looks very do-able despite it’s high 38ml volume. Looking for a heavy-flo cup? You’ll want to see this below:
PERIOD CON Review
When I first heard about PERIOD CON I immediately knew I had to go. As a Mom and primary caretaker of 4 little boys, wife to a busy husband, fur-mama to crazy dog and two working parents, we had to juggle schedules and children to get the boys watched for the day. As a pelvic health and menstrual advocate and educator, I knew I couldn’t miss it. We juggled, I got my Mom and I two bus tickets and we were off!
When I thought of who I would take to NYC with me, I knew it would be my Mom. Growing up she told me the tale of her period. She didn’t know anything about it, one day discovered blood in her underwear and assumed she was dying. This lack of education was common then, and sadly is still the case for many parts of the world today! My Mom has spent 47 years as a nurse, and if anyone knew first hand about period stigma, it was her.
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.
