Menstruating on Day 1 of your holiday can kind of feel like a curse. Well it use to for me at least. Back when I was on the pill I use to skip my period on holidays simply because I just didn’t want to deal with it. (can you relate?)
WOW, how the times have changed though.
The last 2 international holidays I’ve had, Indonesia in May and the USA just this past month have both had me getting my period on Day 1 of my holidays yep that happened on both trips.
Now many women would call that a curse.
Myself… I call it divine timing.
BUT, this last period while flying long haul to Los Angeles had a mind of it’s own. So much so I felt compelled to share my vulnerable experience with you.
Along with my insights on how I manage mensuration while on holidays and still enjoying my holiday.
NO it’s not impossible, it just takes a few things to make it possible.
(of course I share these in this episode)
