Let's talk about periods for a second. You will have a hard time finding a woman who really enjoys their time of the month. It's no wonder we collectively spend billions of dollars in pain relief products like ibuprofen and heating pads. And while we are certainly not opposed to any of these things, it is also important to keep it healthy and fresh under the equator. You have probably heard the phrase "pH balance" used by gynecologists and other healthy experts, and for good reason.
PH refers to the balance of acidic and alkaline molecules in a specified area, and is measured on a scale of 0-14. The lower the number, the more acidic it is. A healthy vagina is between 3 and 5, but this number can easily be affected by external factors, such as your diet or products that have not been designed to work with the natural temperature of your vagina (soap bar and scented cleaners). ]
Thus, during a menstrual cycle, while most are blinded by painful cramps and cravings for chocolate, we should take extra care of our lower regions. But that does not mean that we should want to work. In advance, we have collected 9 safe and affordable products (heating pads included) that will make your periods a little less lamentable.
