Can We Talk Menstruation?

Goddess Kamakya of Assam

There I was, a busy homeschooling mom, wife and entrepreneur, trying hard to function with my day to day obligations and family activities. 
 
 The thing is, at the time I was was educated enough to know that most conventional menstrual pads on the market were toxic to women’s feminine reproductive system. The most reasonable option seemed to be a tampon, BUT, I did not want to go back to using toxic products in my sacred area. It had been 5 years since I stopped using conventional menstrual pads. I was using cloth pads which were healthier, but they were just NOT cutting it. I needed to find a safe pad that could withstand my menstrual flow and not cause any embarrassing leaks.
 
 Can you believe that I have missed many outings and family events, due to fear of being embarrassed? I realized that for the last 5 years of my life, for at least one week every month, I was missing out on some amazing experiences with my family and friends. This slowly began to affect the way I was feeling about myself.

 
 Then, as if by chance, something amazing happened…
 
 I ran into a friend who told me how she was able to change hers and her teen daughter’s menstrual cycle by making just one change every month. The idea that changing one simple product could potentially change my life intrigued me!
 
 Instantly it became crystal clear to me how I needed to start using these menstrual pads in order to have a more positive cycle. I was excited at the thought of being able to have a more positive relationship with my body. At this juncture, what did I have to lose, right?
 
So I went ahead and ordered these mystery menstrual pads. My plan was to start using the pads as soon as my next menstrual cycle arrived. But it wasn’t due to come for another 2 weeks. These were the longest two weeks of my life!

 
 Finally, it was here!

I started using the day time version of the pad on the first day. I quickly realized my friend was right! This was no ordinary pad!

On the first evening, I switched to the night time version of the pad and was shocked to find that neither my clothes nor bed were soiled with blood when I woke up the next morning. I should also mention that I have a mattress pad cover on my side of the bed to prevent seepage from my pad. The pad was not even wet to the touch — like my cloth pads typically are!

I continued this pattern for two days and realized that on the third day my pad was barely soiled with blood. It’s as if the negative ion strip on the center of the pad was affecting my hormones — in a good way — and the intensity of my menstrual flow had slowed down! There was also NO cramping or blood clots — this is something I always experienced.

So here I was, only two FULL days into using these new pads and already I was experiencing life changing results. Before trying out the these menstrual pads, my menstrual cycle was about 7–9 days long. Additionally, I would go through at least 8 or 9 cloth pads in one day, with the outcome always being soiled undergarments and/or clothing. I would also require serious reinforcement at bedtime. So you can imagine my level of excitement! I finally can leave my house during my menstrual flow without feeling self-conscious or without fear of embarrassment. I can finally do the things that I had stopped doing for the last few years.

My first thought was… “Other women need to hear about this pad!” This product has empowered me to take back my life and I want to show other women how they can do the same! I want to share this information with you so that you can get these types of results too!

And doing just that has been mission ever since. I created Sacred Flower Moon in order to educate, empower, and awaken the feminine in every single young girl and woman. I want to make the conversation around female menstruation as normal as talking about the weather. I want to educate young girls and women on the miracle and wonder that is their reproductive system, so that they may enjoy a better connection to their bodies.

I would love it if you stayed tuned and followed me on this journey. I would love it even more, if you joined me in this powerful movement.

Love over everything!
