Menstruation days can be quite uncomfortable. First, that uncertainty of not knowing “when” it will arrive, being able to stain your clothes, seats or others. Also and more importantly, there are health issues: knowing if you are having a healthy cycle. Is that amount of flow normal or not?
Then there is menstruation itself: whether or not to use a sanitary wipe, see what other options there are, or even opt for the classic wipes but with new technologies. And in recent years, This market has given us many solutions with technologies that we present here.
1.- The star application: CLUE
CLUE is an application available for Android and iOS that allows a complete monitoring of your cycle and all the items that are involved with your sexual health. Entering data such as: what day did you get it, what day did you start taking your pills, what symptoms did you feel during menstruation, what day did you have sexual intercourse and others, the app uses them to give useful “predictions” for your period.
In that sense from CLUE clarify in the same application that “they are not” a contraceptive method and that their information is clearly complementary. This, because within its predictions there is one called “fertility window” where it tells you which days you are probably “most fertile”.
Likewise, it is not superfluous to take that window as “an extra warning” and perhaps add an additional method during those days. The great thing is that it also allows you to know “more or less when” your period should arrive: goodbye unforeseen spots.
2.- Improvements in the classic: Cur V®, the new technology of Nosotras day sanitary napkins
CUR V® is the new technology developed by the brand for the entire portfolio of its day sanitary napkins, which fit perfectly to the V zone of women. It has three intelligent absorption zones, with channels that distribute menstruation and asymmetric wings that provide a more enveloping fit, do not overlap and avoid possible accidents.
“One of our pillars is to continue growing with all women through innovation and state-of-the-art technologyin order to be at the forefront of the current needs of a strong, determined woman who seeks to break taboos and normalize menstruation as something natural”, commented Varinia Ancelovici, Marketing Manager of Nosotras®.
The new innovation of the Nosotras® brand will be available in all the countries where the brand has a presence, such as Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, among others, and it hopes with this not only to boost the economy, but continue contributing to the security, freedom and comfort with which the women of the region live their period.
3.- UNNA: the underwear that came to ‘change the rules’
Can you imagine being able to wear normal underwear without diapers, towels, cups, during menstruation? Today it is possible, but you must be very methodical and responsible. UNNA developed panties with special fabrics that absorb ALL your menstruation of approximately 8 hours. After using it, you must wash it in your washing machine, inside a special bag to remove dirt without mistreating the fabric.
Because their cost is higher than normal underwear, our recommendation is that you use them on occasions when you want to go out without the discomfort of the wipe: a special meal, a meeting, an event. Or also to end your day and sleep more comfortably. Having a pack of 3 or 4, you can use them, while you wash the other one and so on. That is why we point out that you must be methodical. But without a doubt it is a great ally for these days.
They even have sporty panties, pretty sexy colaless’s and the classic comfy box. Soon and due to its success, they will add designs for girls as well. You can find them in www.unna.cl
4.- Ziggy: the menstrual cup to have sex
Those days come and you feel that your sex life becomes a little uncomfortable. Technology to the rescue. Ziggy is a menstrual cup that allows you to have vaginal intercourse without blood accidents. Clearly if you and your partner do not like the presence of blood when you are together (there are those who have no problem with that), Ziggy can be a great ally.
It is a “menstrual cup”, similar to the existing ones, but with a different design. This design and its “ultra-soft silicone” construction works by retaining your menstrual flow while you have sex. If your flow is strong, we recommend doing a pre-flush shortly after intercourse and then inserting Ziggy, then removing it. You can find it for sale in Sexshops, such as in www.japijane.cl
5.- Rechargeable heating pad: because menstruating is not just bleeding
Men: spoiler alert. Menstruating is not just bleeding. Women hurt the stomach area, ovaries and more. Sometimes it can even be accompanied by nausea, headaches and others. That’s why it’s nice to see that the technology of menstruation has not only focused on “stopping the bleeding”, but also on our comfort and relief.
This is the case with this rechargeable heating pad. With a design similar to that of a banana and a rechargeable battery via USB, provides us with heat in the hot zone, giving a pleasant relief. There are different brands on platforms such as Amazon, Mercadolibre and even Aliexpress. To find them, just type “rechargeable heating pad” into Google.
