Luna pads and undies

I have a habit, which I found out some of my friends share--so maybe you do, too, of using old, stained undies to be saved for visits from "Aunt Flo". Not to get too graphic, but Lunapads makes special leak proof undies great for those days when you need a little extra protection *and* they have these cotton liners (available in organic!) that you can use as necessary.

This is very retro, but I've stopped with the tampons. My yoga friend was telling me about how you need to "go with the flow," and not even do inversion poses during that time of the month. And also, in Chinese medicine, especially if you have sluggish blood, "blood stasis," like I do, you don't want to be plugging things up. Unfortunately, that makes a lot of sense. And remember toxic shock syndrome? Eeeek.

That old post is here.

My 13 yr old dd uses Lunapads and LOVES them!
In case you, or any of your readers, are interested, I have some coupon codes for Lunapads on my blog. But hurry, they expire on 1/31!
