We keep it in our prayers, “Oh God, please don’t let me have my periods on Valentine’s Day!” But then it happens. And we are left with two options: a). Curl up in bed, let go of the red dress and the high heels, cancel that dinner plan, and not do anything. b). Find a way out because – single or not – we can enjoy Valentine’s Day even when on our periods.
So, to make sure that none of us are missing out the fun on the most romantic day of the year, here are 5 ways to make the most of a Period Valentine:
1. Let him/her/them know
If you are celebrating Valentine’s Day with a significant someone or with your group of friends or parents, let them know. You are together because you share a special bond of love, understanding, and acceptance. Talking to them about what you are going through will make it easier for everyone. They might be more considerate of your comfort. Even if there are any changes of plans, you can be sure that this person will get it and go along.
2. Use a comfortable product
Treat yourself with as much love as you have for those around you. Use a menstrual product that you are comfortable with. Make sure that it fits your flow and treats your skin gently. You can also try out Nua’s sanitary pads that come in three different sizes to fit the flow of your periods.
3. A meal that includes all your cravings
Chocolate, fresh juice, and snacks – all that you crave for! Add them to your Valentine dinner. In fact, why don’t you check out our list of foods that are perfect to satisfy your period cravings? Isn’t that the whole point of it? To eat what you love with someone you love! Or what if you could have that whole box of chocolates to yourself?
4. Keep yourself warm
Cramps happen! And it can be annoying to have them especially on Valentine’s Day. In that case, you can give Nua’s Cramp Comfort a shot. It is a self-heating patch made of natural ingredients that can keep you warm for up to 8 hours. All you have to do is peel off the back cover, attach it to your underwear and let it rest.* You can go about your day, feeling relaxed, and enjoying yourself.
*Please note: We recommend that you do not apply it directly on your skin or sleep while wearing it. Since the product emits consistent heat for 8 hours, please check your skin frequently for signs of irritation.
5. Lastly, this is where the subscription comes handy!
For times like these when you don’t want to go out to buy pads, but go out for that lovely dinner, we want to make sure that you have your pads ready. Nua’s subscription model ensures that your pads reach your doorstep right on time. You can subscribe to your box of sanitary pads, right here.
So periods or no periods, Valentine’s Day can be special for what it is – celebrating love in all its form!
