Vaginalogues: How Women are Changing The Conversation About Menstrual Care

Fresh New Perspectives On Personal Menstrual Care

As women we are blessed with an anatomy that unfortunately we were taught to disaffect from. We didn’t pay enough attention to, or didn’t have open conversations about our lady parts. Gone are the days when talking about our vagina and monthly visitor is taboo. Today women are beginning to embrace feminine hygiene and shattering old myths for a healthier happier vagina. Every woman needs to take the time to get to know herself  intimately, taking time to explore her body, and if she’s in a relationship have open conversations with her partner. Though we still have much to change, feminine hygiene products for menstrual care have come a long way. We’re living in more enlightening times, taking steps toward improved self-image by socially talking about issues surrounding our lady parts. So today, I’m doing my part to contribute to embracing more positive, open conversations, and informed relationships with our body and vagina health by giving some fresh new perspectives on personal menstrual care.
