I’ve been a sanitary napkin user ever since I got my period. Tampons were very alien to me and I got all the wrong information then. But post-pregnancy and some hormone-craziness, I tried Playtex Gentle Glide tampons for the solution to my problem. I’m thankful that I decided to give it a try, my life has never been the same.
No matter how many times I’ve been told that my monthly period should not hinder me from doing my daily activities, I just can’t. That’s why whenever there’s an out-of-town, a running event, or any other occasions that requires a lot of movement, I always check my schedule if it’s that time of the month. Yes, as much as I love spontaneity, I hate last minute decisions especially if I’m expecting my period. Chances are, I won’t be able to enjoy the vacation and I would just sit most of the time because I don’t want to move and have accidental leaks.
That’s how my life goes for as long as I had my period. I have 2 to 3 days downtime during heavy days. And I didn’t mind at all, all girls go through the same thing, I guess.
Then I got pregnant, I was 9 months blood-free! I really enjoyed that phase of my life because that’s when I don’t have to check on my calendar if it’s alright to go out and do some activities. I can go swimming, shopping, sleep-over, etc.
Right after I gave birth, I was told that it’s normal for new mommies to shed blood. But after that, menstrual cycle will resume depending on the mother’s body. I don’t want to go into details, I think this post is too bloody already. My condition was different, I had prolonged menstrual cycle after my pregnancy. I had my period for FOUR straight months! And during those months, we went on a Singapore trip, our college friends had a vacation and we went out-of-town almost every weekend, and we went to Boracay with my family.
That time, I searched for options and decided to use tampons. I bought a box of Playtex Gentle Glide, read the manual and watched YouTube videos, I’m such a newbie!
It is really a life-changing moment for me. Why haven’t I used Playtex Gentle Glide sooner? I was able to go on our trip and enjoyed the sights and sounds without worrying about my period. I was able to go swimming even with my period, it is possible after all! I wore tight-fitting jeans and leggings with no visible bulges from pads. I was able to enjoy life with my friends and family without worrying about petty things like my monthly visit.
Another thing I love about using tampons is that it’s not bulky to pack. Compare the box containing 8 tampons with the pack containing 8 sanitary pads, there will be a huge difference to your toiletry bags.
Now I can enjoy spontaneity, take me wherever and whenever. No downtimes with Playtex Gentle Glide tampons.
Make that switch and try using Playtex Gentle Glide tampons, feel the difference.
