‼️TOTALLY OVERWHELMED AND BLOODY DELIGHTED ‼️ just about sums up our feelings on seeing this veritable mountain of period supplies, donated by customers of @thebodyshop At Home consultants, who have been out there talking all things period and collecting these beauties. 4000
of these consultants came together today, and with them they bought this amazing lot! What a force in normalising periods AND helping out people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access what they need. Thank you so bloody much to each and every one of you ❤️
Also, has anyone seen @hellogabbye? As we seem to have lost her somewhere.... 😂
EDITED TO ADD, for those of you asking about plastic-free and/or reusable products: we are all for anyone who has the luxury of choice going plastic-free; we work with several sustainable brands to get plastic-free products to the women we work with, and are more than happy to accept donations of biodegradable or plastic-free pads. Sadly most reusable products aren’t generally suitable for most of the people we work with. As they are refugees and asylum seekers, they generally live in accommodation without reliable access to lockable bathrooms, for example, to be able to practice using cups; or reliable washing facilities to keep cups or reusable pads clean. Many have also suffered trauma, at minimum displacement and the journey to reach this country, but possibly also including FGM, which makes using cups difficult or impossible. We therefore prioritise getting these women the products they are familiar with and feel comfortable with. There’s more info on this in the FAQ on our website
It's that 'time of the month' AGAIN 🙄 If you think it's nothing more than mood swings, then you are wrong.
Will you still trivialise the condition, if you are told that it can develop into PMDD, a more severe form of PMS. 🤔

"Ever since I started at #JIVITA Foundation and learned about their #Mwanao Project, I knew I wanted to be involved! In Tanzanian communities, it is quite common for young girls to not attend school whilst on their period and eventually dropping out of school. .
@jivitafoundation continues to be an advocate for young women’s menstrual health and their right to an education. The thing I most appreciate about this initiative is that the young boys are also involved in the discussion and are made aware that they should not shame their female peers for being on their periods. It is so gratifying to see young boys learning how to be agents of empowerment for women.
A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to accompany @jivitafoundation to two secondary schools in Arusha where they gave presentations on the importance of understanding menstrual health and proper hygiene techniques. They also were able to provide free feminine hygiene products for the female students."

I have to bust this myth weekly, if not daily, when I see women symptom spotting on their charts.
Contrary to what you see perpetuated on the internet and even in TCOYF, triphasic charts (charts where there are three levels of temperatures, where a second "shift" happens after the initial shift) are not indicative of pregnancy. In fact, they happen even in charts where no intercourse has occcured.
A triphasic chart is only a sign of your progesteone rising in a normal process in your luteal phase.
Likewise, any dips that happen in the luteal phase are unlikely to be because of implantation and can also occur even in charts without intercourse. A dip in the luteal phase could be due to an estrogen surge, another normal event.
It may be hard not to symptom spot, especially if you are trying to conceive. In that case, know that you can stop temping once you have confirmed ovulation. Take a break and relax from charting instead of reading it for signs of pregnancy.
What does a pregnancy chart look like? At least 18 high temps above the line and a positive pregnancy test 😊

So firstly, the reason why this is a hilarious meme is that my sisters have always told me if I was a dog ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️ this would be me, facial expressions and all 🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️😆😆😆😆😆😆 Secondly, I actually look like this 60% of the time whether I'm in deep thought or confused 😆😆😆😆😆 And finally, this was my exact expression when I checked my app n realized my period didn't come on the 9th (I was so relieved that I willed my vagina into delaying my period) but then made the same face when I realized it was here on the 13th🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏾♀️😲😲😲 #periods#periodscramps#menstruation#menstrualcycle#menstruationmatters#afrogypsyyoni#healthywombhappywoman#trinidad#tobago#baltimore
