Lunapads fans, I’d like to ask you a question! How long did you use disposables before making the switch to cloth? Did you notice a change in the way you felt during your period when you stopped using disposable pads or tampons?
My cramps have practically disappeared since I started using Lunapads. Weird, but totally cool and definitely welcome. I can’t say for certain what caused this change, but I am loving it. Has anyone else experienced changes like this? Is anyone aware of any scientific studies about the chemicals in disposable menstrual products and their effect on cramps, bloating, and other PMS symptoms?
I discovered Lunapads after decades of disposable use and noticed a change within a few months. Some parts of my new, more comfortable life with my cycle are hard to describe, but others are not quite so complex. Less cramping! Totally comfortable during my period! No rashes or chafing! No more yeast infections! And yes, my monthly crabbyness is significantly reduced. My period is also lighter and brighter (most days). That said, I am of an age where lighter periods is pretty normal (hello, menopause!)
Talk amongst us around the office confirms that there where significant changes for all of us when we switched. There’s an abundance of reviews and testimonials on our website confirming that we’re not the only ones who have experienced a very different sort of period after ditching the disposables. My daughters seems to have experienced a change too, and I noticed the difference when one went back to using disposable pads for a cycle. I suspect that what many of us are experiencing is due to using products that are healthier for our bodies — but is there more to it than just that?
What do you think? What has your experience been like?
