Why does my vagina itch *days* before my period?

By: Allison Waldbeser Have you ever noticed your vagina starts to itch a few days before your period…? Could it be a yeast infection? Maybe, maybe not. Many menstruating humans experience vaginal itching in different stages of their menstrual cycle. Remember, the menstrual cycle lasts ~28 days, having different functions in each stage, and every uterus is different! But why is it so common for people to experience that deadly itch before menstrual bleeding? It could be many reasons, but it always links back to vaginal pH levels. A normal pH level for your vagina ranges from 3.5-4.5, which means...

High cervix, low cervix and your menstrual cup

What the heck is a cervix? Do you know what a cervix looks like? If you haven’t already searched Google images for it (which we highly recommend you do), we’re here to break it down for ya. During menstruation, the cervix plays a key role in this process. Knowing where your period comes from not only helps you understand your body more, but it empowers you!

 Ok, but what even is a cervix?
 It’s basically the “neck” of the uterus. Wait...my uterus has a neck….? Sort of. It’s a narrow neck-like passage that lies below the uterus and above the vagina....

Four Period Activists You’ll Want To Be Bffs With

By: Allison Waldbeser Although 2015 was the year of the period, we think EVERY year should be a time to bring menstruation to the public eye. Not only is it important to break the period taboo, but it’s crucial to be able to talk about menstruation without feeling uncomfortable, judgmental, or shameful.  Unfortunately there are some people who still hide tampons under their sleeves, skip fun activities due to their periods, and don’t know how to talk about menstruation without expressing some awkwardness. We’ve put together a list of four period activists who have inspired the world in some way...

PSA: Not All Dads Are Scared Of Period Talk

Does your dad look at his phone or turn his head (ever so slyly) when a tampon or pad commercial comes on? Is there an elephant in the room when you’re sitting at the kitchen table with a heating pad on your lap and a tub of ice cream in front of you?

BUT...speaking from personal experience, it’s important to be open with your dad about your period. It is a...

How To Talk About Menstrual Cups When Someone Just Doesn't Get It!

By: Allison Waldbeser Ever since I started blogging for Lunette I catch myself *strongly* voicing my opinions about taboo topics such as menstruation, sex, and women’s health issues. I mean c’mon, it’s kind of hard not to, especially in this controversial time surrounding overall human rights issues! Don’t get me wrong, not everyone agrees or considers these topics as important as I would like them to, but that’s okay! As long as everyone keeps an open mind, the worst that can happen is an “unfollow” on my social media channels (haha!), or a “this is so weird” comment. So, with...
