A German entrepreneur duo have received heavy criticism for their new product designed to make disposal of tampons and sanitary products more hygienic. But what do you think?
Wood and plastic are all that I have experienced. I’m not a fan of either of them.
Edit: I’ve only used incredibly cheap and thin plastic. I know wood can be cleaned but the amount of crevices just creeps me out for the germ factor. If a type of wood is considered best, I would try it though.
Umm I was skeptical about writing this here....but I guess skin down there is also skin and one should care for it as well, so I thought to give it a shot! Mods are welcome to remove it if it doesn't fill the criteria.
So I wanted to know which sanitary pads you prefer and why? I have been using whisper the green one since time immemorial but I want to know if there are any better ones out there?
Any rave/review/rejects are welcomed! Your experience and suggestions would be very much appreciated!
I’ve been very hesitant to ask anyone in real life about this so Reddit makes it all easy for me. I’m a single 22 year old guy but I’ve been in relationships twice before and both my ex girlfriends have had periods worse for them.
I’m talking changing pads every two hours worse. So with knowing such things and how worried my last girlfriend would often be fearing she’d run out of pads and no one else may be around, I started considering keeping a pack in my own bag too. Due to COVID, we never got to that part that she would face that at university and call me to come to her.
But ever since then, I’ve always thought about keeping a pack in my bag for the safe side. If a girl gets on periods and she’s unprepared, would it be weird if I reached out to them for that? Or if it’s someone I know and she told me, would it be seen awkwardly if I told them that I carry a pack?
Thanks in advance.
>In this paper, we shed new light on a long-standing puzzle: in India, Muslim children are substantially more likely than Hindu children to survive to their first birthday, even though Indian Muslims have lower wealth, consumption, educational attainment, and access to state services.

>TLDR they study differences in infant mortality rates between Indian Hindus and Muslims, and present evidence that the higher mortality rates observed among Indian Hindus can be completely accounted for by the different sanitation environments in which Hindu and Muslim children grow up.
60 per cent of people who defecate in the open globally live in rural South Asia, and 56 per cent live in rural India alone... Exposure to open defecation has serious consequences for child mortality, health, and human capital development. South Asia has the highest rates of open defecation worldwide... The rate of open defecation in sub-national regions of Bangladesh, India and Nepal is highly correlated with the fraction of the population that identifies as Hindu, in part because certain rituals of purity and pollution discourage having latrines in close proximity to one’s home.... this paper estimates how much the rate could be reduced if rural households in regions that have a higher fraction of Hindus, where open defecation is still common, altered their behaviour to reflect that of non-Hindu households in regions that are predominantly non-Hindu, where the rate of open defecation is much lower. Using non-parametric re-weighting methods, this paper projects that rural open defecation in Bangladesh, India, and Nepal could be reduced to rates of between 6 and 8 per cent, compared to the prevailing level of 65 per cent.
I am trans-masc and haven't been able to start T yet and am currently still getting my period and was wondering if there was a brand of pads that aren't covered in things like "Strong like a girl" or similar sayings? This didn't use to bother me but it seems recently that it has started to really make me feel dysphoric. I have looked and been unable to find a brand that doesn't make me either very dysphoric or very embarrassed to buy.
I believe that every job serves a role in our society. If everyone is a doctor or scientist, who is going to work jobs like hotel staff, waste management (which pays really well), or food service? Maybe that elderly person really enjoys working at the grocery store. We scare our kids by telling them they’ll end up flipping burgers. But those jobs are important to society as a whole. We all have a role and we shouldn’t feel ashamed about ourselves because we don’t have a career popular opinion deems as important or prestigious. We look down on people too much for their job and it’s so stupid.

STAY SAFE EVERYONE
I work as a dishwasher at a large chain restaurant. Our machine (conveyor belt style) had been in disrepair for years, but has gotten particularly bad this year. Aside from the racks constantly getting stuck, parts of the machine falling off while in use, and generally sucking as a dish machine, something is wrong with the detergent system and it runs through a pack of detergent in a few minutes. (meant to last the better part of a day) For months, we've been running out of detergent for it, and we regularly go days at a time sending the dishes through without soap of any kind. We aren't given time to hand-wash when there's no detergent for the machine, and are expected to finish at the same time, so we send the dishes through without soap My coworkers and I have brought this issue up to management multiple times and it has not been resolved. There are a host of other sanitary/safety concerns that I won't go into because I'm tired after another grueling, soapless shift. Is this legal? Surely guests are not aware they're eating off RINSED dishes, and it does me moral injury to put the dishes away knowing they aren't sanitary. What should my next steps be?
Update: I've decided to contact my local health department. I had a strongly worded but respectful conversation with my manager today about the problems in the dish room. I'm going to report it anyway just to make sure this is resolved. He might know it was me, but that's ok because I know I'm doing the right thing. In a worst-case scenario, I get a job next door at the fancy new taco restaurant (we borrow their soap a lot) Thank you for the advice and encouragement :)
Does anyone have any recommendations for pads and tampons in the UK please? I am not yet ready to use a menstrual cup Is superdrugs own products my only option in this case? Thanks!
I can't believe it's taken me at least a decade to discover sanitary pads that are specifically for night time use. I was just using normal/long ones before and hoping they'd last the night (probably wouldnt) and waking up specifically to check/change them.
Night ones are so fucking amazing. I swear they're twice the size and just absorb everything. I fully regret not getting them before now - so many stained underwear and pjs that could have been prevented if I had bought those instead 🤦♀️
Sorry if this is TMI, just wanted to share this with somebody that maybe understands
