How to Handle Your Periods (For Women Only)

I had a sweet lady write and ask what I did for my periods.

Firstly, disposable pads and tampons are very toxic to your system. They cause foul odors and make you itchy and uncomfortable. Tampons are the worst things you can ever stick inside of you. The only thing that should ever go inside of you is your husbands penis, and your baby coming out of the womb. Pads and tampons can cause yeast infections and Urinary Tract Infections.

I use cotton pads. I actually just take a stretch of cotton  and fold it up and lay it in my underwear. When it gathers up enough blood, I refold it to where the blood is in the back, and the front is fresh and clean. I can use a pad a day using this method.

As soon as I am done, I put the pad in the sink, mix cold water and peroxide and let it sit. Then, after the blood has come out, I immediately throw it in the washing machine and let it wash. Peroxide isn't good for your insides either, but it is fabulous at taking out blood! Thats why you must immediately wash the pads when you are done. Sometimes I use lemon juice as a bleaching effect. I never use bleach unless the pad is too stained, and then, I will wash the pad two or three times to make sure it isn't going to hurt me.

I hope you all have enjoyed this, and that it helps you out.

Love, Ashleigh

  1. This is absolutely sick! You are a sick woman! There is only one thing out there that says tampons aren't good for you and that is if you wear them too long then it can cause Toxic Shock Syndrome, but it's rare. Paper pads do not cause UTI's unless you wear the pad all day. And just for the record, if you wear that cotton all day then that's breeding grounds for infection. You are such a two faced bitch proclaiming to be a Christian, but in reality you are in a dictating cult. You are doomed. And if you're home all day then how do you witness to people? And in another post you said that your kids have only been in the car a handful of times. But then in another post you say you go to church each Sunday. So which is it? You are a liar and can't keep your stories straight!

    1. Tampons and pads have all kinds of chemicals in them. They make you smell bad because of the chemicals. I feel better wearing my pads.

      The children and I walk everywhere we go. And we DO go to the park, so yes, we do still witness to others. No, not the park we just got banned from, but another park.

      The children have only ridden in a car a handful of times. This is true. They do not ride in cars because there are too many dangers. We walk to church.

  2. http://tipnut.com/free-pattern-for-washable-feminine-menstrual-pads/ is a a great site with patterns for making pads and they can look really cute too! There are even sites for making homemade tampons (which personally I think is weird) but hey, different strokes for different folks. -smiley

  3. I prefer flannel for my monthlies! To save money I like to repurpose flannel shirts I by from the thrift store! I like that the plaid patterns hide unsightly stains!

  4. Tampons and pads from stores may have chemicals in them, but your method is only collecting bacteria and Toxic Shock Syndrome just waiting to give you nasty diseases. Gross. And I love how you believe tampons are anti-Jesus and everything. I think that Bible verse is in Luke, right next to 'thou faithful one must marry thy daughters off before age 13 or else ye shall burn in Hell.'

  5. Lily you inspire me! I think I have some old red t-shirts that just might do for that! Do you know how to make them stay and not bunch up? When they started making pads with wings, I was SO thrilled; finally they would stay!
    Actually, Ashleigh, I was slightly disappointed that your home business didn''t happen. I thought you were gonna make these pads and sell them. Oh well; good ideas anyway.

  6. Jesus approves of the diva cup. I prayed hard about it and he answered my prayer telling me it was approved by our heavenly father.

  8. Hello Again-
    Im finally able to back read through your lovely blog now that the girls are in bed. I loved this post, but I do have a recommendation and question. Why are you using plain cloth for the pads? What if your husband saw the pads- put yourself in his position and how his attracction towards you would be hurt at that moment. Yes, every woman gets her monthly visitor, but I suggest what I do, and that is to make the pad look as pretty as you can--maybe some nice floral print fabric? That way if your husband accidently sees them the will still think "feminine" and will not be disgusted by women's dirty time of the month. You may want to try this. Please let me know what Troy thinks about this idea.

  9. "The only thing that should ever go inside of you is your husbands penis, and your baby coming out of the womb. "
    Just curious, what is your opinion on vibrators?
