How to be a Diva: 3 steps

22 Dec

The Diva Cup:

It will literally change your life. You’ll never have to worry if you have a tampon on you. You’ll barely have to think about your period except a couple times a day. You’ll save oodles of money, plus you’re helping out the environment AND your body. What more could you ask for? OK, I sometimes supplement with a reusable cotton pad, but I’m equally excited about those. It’s this kind of stuff we should be sending to girls and women who can’t go to school or work because of their periods.

Magnesium Supplements:

I used to have terrible PMS, and, once my period started, I would take 600mg of Ibuprofen every 3 hours for four days just to survive til the next time I could lay down. Granted, my period has been better since I had my son, but it still wasn’t easy. Now, my period sneaks up on me (no zits either!), and I take only 400-800mg of Ibuprofen per day for the first 2-3 days of my period. I eat relatively healthy, but this supplement is my favorite so far of all the new supplements I’m taking. One 500mg pill every other day, and poof my PMS went away.

Women’s lit:

Taking Charge of Your Fertility (which is not just about getting pregnant), Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth, Nursing Mother’s Companion, and Period Repair Manual. It’s important to graduate high school and go get a college degree… but what about learning about your own body? These four books will get you started in the best possible way.

There are many stages to our lives as women. These are the best books I’ve read and cover most of what you would want to know about what physically goes on inside of you. Don’t be afraid. It’s pretty miraculous and really, really cool.
