During puberty, nothing was more horrifying for me than having menstrual cramps.I was a moderate bloomer. My mum had a discussion with me before then so I knew what to expect.

She got me pads and bras.

My menstrual pains would come and go but I had classmates who would sometimes miss classes because of the pains they were having.

During menstruation some girls would be on medication to relieve the pains.

I experienced menstrual pains too and fought with acnes….oh acnes on my face were terrible.

I tried alot of products, at a point, I stopped applying things on my face.

I felt comfortable talking with my mum about things like menstruation and my body in general because she made me feel free.

Now back to the main gist.

In many families, it’s up to mothers to set the tone for these types of conversations with their daughters.

Menstrual pain is very common among adolescents and women. This occurs when chemicals that form the lining of the uterus forces contractions. Sometimes it starts from ovulation.

I observed that there are some sanitary pads that gives me more cramps and pains.

At first, I didn’t notice until I bought another product one day and saw the difference.

From the moment I changed products,there were no more cramps.

It was a miracle.

Why allow your daughter or even yourself go through unnecessary pains when a change in product comes with rewards?

Anyway,if you want to know more about the product,send me a direct message.

Here are some helpful tips to prepare your daughter for her first period.

☄️Agree ahead of time how she can tell you when it starts.

☄️She may have a virginal discharge a few months before she has her first period and will have to wear a panty liners.

You can get supplies ahead of time so she is prepared.

If you don’t talk about things ahead of time,it may feel awkward whenf it’s time too and she may make mistakes.
Make it easy by allowing her communicate with you about anything and without making it a big deal.
☄️ Purchase quality products and let her know she can ask you for pads when she runs out of them.

  1. Hi, your article came in handy as I am preparing my daughter for that stage of her life.

    I started the discussion when she turned 9 years and I believe she is almost ready with the teachings so far.

    I want to know the sanitary pad you talked about in your article.

    Thanks in anticipation.
