It’s Women’s Health Week (2-6 September) and we’re excited to give you some tips on how to care for our fav body part—the vagina!
A lot goes on down there, more than you probably thought! Our vag creates a specific environment with a careful balance of flora. This is why many people say that its self-cleaning! The discharge you experience is your body’s way of keeping itself clean, by flushing out dead cells and harmful bacteria.
Can using hannahpads be discrete?
I never carried disposable pads together in a pouch before, so it was never discrete having to pull one out and shove it in my pocket or tuck it under my armpit before racing to the bathroom.
Having a separate pouch kept my pads all in one place and I just plucked the pouch out of my bag whenever I needed it. If ever I came across someone at work between my desk and the toilet, they probably simply thought I had a makeup bag in hand. I don't really care what people think because it's true after all that I am a menstruating human.
For those interested in trying hannahpads, our certified organic cotton is beige in colour and sits against your skin to catch flow and discharge. Unlike hannahpads, most cloth pads use dark colours or patterns.
Here are some key reasons why we don’t colour our hannahpads (the part that touches your skin).
Here at hannahpad we like to encourage people to get in touch with their body on a clothpad journey towards being healthier and eco-friendlier.
This journey takes a bit of getting use to but with a regular monthly regime you’ll soon be in control of your flow.
