Same girl! Ever since I started using menstrual cup, I don't have to buy stuff unless I'm PMS-ing and need to buy lots of fries or ice cream, or all other expensive carbs I crave

I'm fully prepared to fight whatever straight man decided to tax period products as "luxury items" 😡

How do they work? I hate tampons after delivery and pads always end up giving me pimples. Like do you just wash and reuse straight away?

0$ since I use menstrual cup. But if we're talking about PMS induced doughnut runs, that's different story

I get pads for 1500 naira and above now. It's quite expensive now. I used to buy them for 700 but now it's 1500+

I use tampons during the day and pads through the night so I only really have to buy products every 2 ish months I'd say like my tampons can usually go for about 2-3 months, but on the other hand with pads they usually last about 2 months depends on my flo. So I don't have to spend much I'd say no more than like $30 every few months:)

I use a cup, so the only period collection product I buy on a regular basis at this point is a pack of thin liners every couple of month for those last super light days. But I also have endometriosis. So if we're including the amount I spend on pain medication, anti nausea medication , soothing teas, tropical pain relief creams and heat pads, and bath salts??? Quite frankly, I don't even want to think about it

Maybe bout 30 to 50 dollars once every few months. I keep the stash at work fully stocked with tampon and pads for the girls, personally on myself, 70 to 140 dollars once a year, I use Modi Bodi undies
