5 Affordable Menstrual Products That Will Not Burn A Hole In Your Pocket. Keep Both Your Vagina And Wallet Happy!

5 Affordable Menstrual Products That Will Not Burn A Hole In Your Pocket. Keep Both Your Vagina And Wallet Happy!

I remember the following years after I first got my period, I used to bring the sanitary pads’ packet wrapped in a newspaper which was further wrapped in a black polythene bag. This was because it was installed right at home in me that pads and periods are a shameful thing to talk about and any sign of it should be hidden. But as I grew up, I realised what I was being taught was wrong and those things did not make sense at all. Gradually, I then got confident about telling the shopkeeper that I did not want the pads wrapped and when I began buying them on my own, I came across the different brands of pads that are there and what price range they fall in.

Now, I know that mostly menstrual hygiene products tend to be on the pricier side but we also cannot do without them. It is Menstrual Hygiene Day on May 28, and therefore, I decided to write this piece to let you all know about the menstrual products that are affordable, easily available and comfortable to use.
