Every time I'm almost reaching to my menstrual cycle week since I got married, my husband keeps on asking me, "Are you pregnant?"
He thinks women who are pregnant would be hormonal and sensitive and emotional. Well, in some cases, yes, maybe. But mood swings do happen to most women, a week before having their period too! It's called the Pre-Menstrual Syndrome, sweetie. So yeah I'm not pregnant.. My hormone is just teeny bit unstable. I can't win a fight against my own body, right? Hence it definitely can affect the way that I feel, both physically and emotionally. My boobs feels swelling, my tummy hurts, I feel bloated, and I don't know why, I feel rimas all the time! So like a lot of brilliant, funny, wonderfully awesome women, I too, suffer from anxiety and depression - I am a naturally happy person, but during my period I become extremely sensitive! Sigh... I cry easily and I get angry over silly things too. Seeing a stray cat who is hungry and meowing for food also can make me weep! haha.
Unfortunately, while period, mood swings and cramps are facts of life for many girls. Over-the-counter pain relievers can be helpful. Regular exercise can make cramps less painful and help with PMS symptoms too. Plus, exercise is a good mood lifter. For me, I find that aromatherapy scented candles and heating pads or warm baths can help with my cramps and making me feel good about myself a little! Also, it is VERY important that you invest in a really good and quality sanitary pad! Why? Because wrong choice of pads during this "crucial" time can make you even more moody when you see leakage everywhere! I like to use a pad that I feel safe down there..hehe
Whisper has come up with their new range of pads, the Cottony Clean. It’s Whisper’s softest protection ever! With the blue-lock core it locks in fluid for all-sides, comfortable and cleaner protection!
Other than Cottony Clean, there’s another product called Ultra Clean and Dry. Cottony Clean is different from Clean and Dry because it has a soft, cotton top sheet that is gentle to the skin. Now you can have BOTH protection and comfort. Whereas the Clean and Dry has fast (1 second!) absorbency
This product is different from the Whisper Ultra Clean and Dry thanks to a soft, cotton top sheet that is gentle to the skin. Now not only can you get protection but you can get comfort! With this pad, you will never have to worry about seeing those red stains and feeling icky down there!
