Why You Should Have A Tampon Subscription

Periods are the worst. Sure, they are a beautiful reminder of our womanhood, but really they are just inconvenient and obnoxious, and also messy. As if excruciating cramps and puddles of blood, as well as insatiable cravings, weren’t bad enough, on top of it all we have to deal with the purchasing of feminine care products. Any girl who gets a period (i.e. any girl) can tell you how incredibly frustrating it is to be visited by Aunt Flo and run to the bathroom, only to discover that oops! You’re out of tampons.

*sigh*

*humph*

*Grumble*

So, you go to the store, praying that you won’t bleed through your leggings, and then pay the ridiculous $8 (plus tax) for a box of cotton sticks, plus whatever unnecessary snacks you pick up along the way. Inevitably the cashier will be a cute guy who will avoid any eye contact during the transaction. You’ll probably run into your mom’s best friend as you’re trying to leave Target and she’ll want to talk to you about your future, parents, boyfriend, etc. until you’re so convinced that blood is pouring down your pants that you make up some lie about a dog in your car and run away as fast as possible. You then get home and are so exhausted from the running and the cramps and your uterine wall shedding that you pass out and forget to do anything productive for a week.

It would be great if we could just not get periods and avoid all this (actually, there are many reasons why it would be great to not get periods, but we can go into that later). But for the time being, if we must get the monthly visit, we might as well make it easier on ourselves, which is exactly why you should get a tampon subscription. Like a magazine subscription, a tampon subscription is a service where you pay a certain amount a month and a box of tampons or pads, or whatever else you require, magically appears at your door and you never have to worry about those midnight runs to Walgreens again. There are a number of companies that provide this marvelous service. You can just choose which one suits your fancy, sign up for an account, give them your money, and all your worries will be soaked right up.

L. 

L is a San Francisco-based company that makes all natural feminine health products, as well as condoms. You have a choice of different sized tampons and pads and can add up to three products to your subscription box, starting at $6.95 a month. For every purchase you make, L. donates a product to a woman entrepreneur in a developing country.

Kali Boxes

Kali sells chemical free tampons designed by women, for women. You can choose between monthly or bi-monthly boxes, because everyone’s periods are different, and can get either tampons or pads or both, at the absorbency you require. Their boxes cost between $15 and $20.

Cora

Cora knows that periods are a natural process, and that is why the founders Molly and Morgen feel that the “time of month” should never be a source of shame, harm, or uncertainty. Start with a free trial, and then sign up for an ongoing subscription, starting at $7 a month, of organic tampons in chic packaging. Then, Cora provides a month’s supply to a girl in a developing country so that everyone can have a #fearless period.
