For those who get a period, the monthly bleed can be a hard time. Between the cramps, the bleeding and the moods - it’s not a fun time. MINXxx is passionate about both sexual and menstrual health and is here to provide you with three products to make your period better.
For the cramps
Meet Aura, if you suffer with pain during your period she will be your new best friend. This portable TENS machine will aid your pain by utilizing electronic nerve stimulation technology to provide fast relief. This machine can be used on your back, belly, neck and legs and is easy to use, making it suitable for anyone who experiences a period. Chronic Illness Advocate, Haylee Penfold, says Aura is a “handy device to use both at home and out in public to make pain flare ups easier to manage”.
For the bleeding
Recent research has shown that using tampons and pads are not only bad for the environment but also not the best for your body either. Utilizing products that don’t have harsh chemicals can be beneficial for your vagina and overall health. That is where period cups come in. These products are made from medical grade silicone, and hold 4-6x more than a regular tampon meaning there are less trips to the bathroom throughout your bleed.
For the bedroom
For those that experience heavy bleeding, here is a life hack that might help you sleep better at night. Utilising a sex blanket(a waterproof soft to touch blanket) to sleep on will keep your bedsheets safe from leaks through the night. If you’re daring, and delve into sex during your period this can also be beneficial in reducing the clean up.
Whatever it is that you struggle with during your period, you shouldn’t feel ashamed of your monthly cycle. If you have any questions regarding any of these products please don’t hesitate to send us a DM on instagram or visit us in store.
