Self-isolating and social distancing during the sunnier months doesn’t feel fair, and to be frank, neither does having a period during a pandemic! Maybe reading tips for relieving period cramps at home will help? Or perhaps with the aid of these funny tweets about having periods during COVID-19, you’ll find comfort in knowing you aren’t the only one feeling the pressure.

Know what you’re putting in your body?
No pesticides, phthalates or dioxins! Try tampons made with 100% organic cotton and nothing else.
Make the switch today

I do not believe Menstrual Cycle is an essential business, therefore should definitely shut down during quarantine.
