HoneyPot Intimate Wash for Women | Review

Women all around the world are still quite uncomfortable speaking about various issues such as PMS, infections in feminine parts, as well as odor, which is why there is still a lack of general awareness regarding female hygiene. Our delicate areas require special attention to keep them clean, dry, and infection-free, especially during our monthly cycle. HoneyPot Intimate Wash is one such product that can help you in taking care of the most sensitive part of your body.

The low pH of this intimate wash makes it more suitable than regular soap for the feminine regions. The formula is extremely gentle and also contains seabuckthorn and tea tree oil to keep the skin clean and fresh. The wash has a pleasant fragrance that will help to curb any odor and it is mild enough to not cause any sort of irritation on the sensitive skin.

I will highly recommend trying out this product to keep all the itchiness and irritation at bay.

Nua Sanitary Pads Subscription Box | Review

Subscription boxes are all the rage these days and while some of them offer you luxury goods that you will never buy for yourself in the form of a goodie box, others are way more utilitarian and perfect for the busy woman. What could be more practical and useful for a woman than a box of menstrual hygiene supplies delivered to her doorstep every month? Every woman will agree that thanks to our fast-paced lives, we often forget about that time of the month being around the corner and are caught unprepared without any supplies at home. The Nua sanitary pads subscription box is something that can help you avoid such emergency situations altogether. I recently received a box from Nua as a giveaway price and here are my thoughts on it.

The box contains pads for heavy, medium, and light flow respectively and you can customize your box according to your needs. A box of 15 pads is priced at INR 249 for a month and the price goes down further if you choose to pick 2 or 3 packs at once. You can also choose the frequency of the delivery of the boxes as once every month, once every two months, or once every three months. Basically, you can customize this subscription entirely as per your requirements to be never caught unprepared for your period ever again. The details of all these customizations are better explained on the Nua website, so do check it out for more info.

Coming to the quality of the pads, they are thin, comfortable to wear and slightly scented to keep any odor at bay. Despite being thin, they absorb really well and are quite long wearing. They have well-positioned wings that keep them in place all day long and they do not cause any rash or irritation even if you keep them on for more than a few hours. The pads for heavy flow can really soak up a lot and even the pads for medium flow are good enough to be comparable to the overnight pads from other brands. I also love the discreet packaging of the pads – each of them comes in an individual envelope that is quite different from anything I have ever seen in India, which makes it slightly less obvious that you are carrying around a pad.

Overall, I have nothing negative to say about this subscription service. It may cost you a little more than your standard pads but completely eliminates the hassle of keeping track of your period and heading out to buy pads every month. So if you are someone who is super busy and hates running this monthly errand then I highly recommend that you give this subscription service a shot!

A Candid Chat On Fertility and Hormones

Editor’s Note – Hi guys, as some of you may know, I am starting a guest blog series here and the first post in this series is something that might be very useful for all my female readers. So over to Becca who will be sharing her experience with fertility issues and offering some advice on how to cope with the same.

Hi guys!  

Thank you so much for having me here, I blog over at Post IVF world and as the name suggests, I talk about my life now that IVF is over, I also speak a lot about hormone health, mental health, and pregnancy loss. (but honestly, it isn’t all doom and gloom like it may seem)

Seeing as I have the opportunity to write this guest post, I really want to talk to you guys about fertility.

Have you thought about your own? If you haven’t you are not alone!

Education around fertility and hormone health is severely lacking in our society, mostly because it’s not fully understood or recognized as something that is a general issue, but the facts are, fertility starts declining at just age 27 for women. I bet most of you didn’t realize that?

Most people think fertility issues are largely from the women’s side but recent studies have shown fertility issues are one- third female issues, one-third male and one-third unidentified reasons.

What that really means though, is that it could happen to any of us, often to people who, on the surface appear to be perfectly healthy people!

I was lucky, in that I found out I was infertile at 15, I was young and although it has been very hard at least I knew where I stood early on. I could make a plan to have donor egg IVF, I had information to make choices.

There are so many people who don’t feel able to talk about their hormone health, hormonal issues or concerns with their reproductive system until its so late that there isn’t much that can be done.

I am campaigning as hard as I can to raise awareness and get people talking about fertility, it is something that I want people to understand is okay to talk about, and there are some amazing communities out there that can offer advice and support!

So let’s get talking!!

I have always found it relatively easy to talk about hormones and the reproductive system, in turn, this has helped my friends be more aware and knowledgeable on this subject, and has helped them feel confident to go to their GP when they feel like something isn’t right.

So why not, next time you are talking to your friends, ask them about their periods and hormones, get the conversation going, it is amazing how many people I talk to about this and they say they haven’t had a period for ages but are presuming everything is okay, I know it can be scary, but as someone who can’t have children, get checked out, before it is too late.

(Pass this article around as much as you like, it might really help someone!!)

You might find that people close to you are struggling more with this kind of thing than you ever knew, and just felt ashamed or embarrassed to discuss it (fertility issues can do this to you!)

For now, I wanted to write a set of guidelines, something to help people out who are supporting someone going through fertility issues or concerns, I get contacted quite often from people who just don’t know what to say, even if they are lifelong friends, it can feel like a bit of a minefield!

So, here is my checklist of Do’s and Don’ts:

Do’s

1. Just sit with them and listen, you probably don’t have the questions, especially if this is an unknown world to you, so the kindest thing you can do is to be quiet, they will probably need to just talk it out! (for me, the more I talked about it the more it made sense in my head)

2. Let them know you are here, no matter what, you love them for who they are! Fertility can be so harsh and can make you question what’s good about yourself. If you can’t do the one thing nature intended (at least this is how I felt) I couldn’t be fixed, and I needed to know it hadn’t changed how people saw me!

3. Let them know that whatever they are feeling is completely natural, and it is okay to feel this way, for as long as they need, it’s hard enough without beating yourself up because you feel guilty for feeling the way you do.

Don’ts

1. Tell them everything will be okay, because it might not be, and it can make them feel like you truly don’t understand how they are feeling.

2. Rush them, when you find out you have infertility problems, it can be a period of mourning or grief, and this is something that can’t be fixed overnight.

3. Tell them that your friend had fertility issues then got pregnant naturally after 2 months, although it sounds positive, this is an unlikely scenario and really isn’t helpful to people who are going through it.

4. Force them to discuss it, they might not be ready, you can still be there for them by doing things you usually do and not treating them any different!

I know this is short, but hopefully, it goes some way to help you support others, and if any of you guys have more questions or just want to chat fire me an email, I would love to connect!
