A lot of women feel restricted when they’re on their period. Perhaps it isn’t going out with your friends, or maybe you don’t like going to the gym or swimming because of it, or perhaps you just write the week of your monthly menstrual cycle off completely. If you think about it – that’s a lot of inconveniences caused by mother nature over a lifetime. Once upon a time I perhaps stopped what I did too, now I quite frankly don’t care. Whether that is an age thing or not, who knows, but I wasted a lot of time putting things off and not having fun because of it.

Bodyform have just launched their VIP pink ticket promotion. A collaboration for a lucky winner to have a music-related experience, so they got in touch to ask me to do the same. Of course, I was completely loving this idea, not only to promote a fabulous competition but to drive home the idea that you can still have fun when you’re ‘on’. I have even had a period during a festival, and we all know how awkward that can be, visiting portaloos more than we’d like to, feeling uncomfortable and so on. It doesn’t have to be like that. With the right care and products, you can almost forget it’s even happening! How I dealt with that festival issue, was pads and wipes. I get a little paranoid actually with tampons about leaving them in too long, so I often like a pad, but at the same time I don’t want to be worrying about that either. Luckily sanitary towels have come on leaps and bounds over the years, so now they’re really¬†absorbent but minimal.

With this in mind and the new launch of the Bodyform VIP ticket competition, I wanted to get into a chat about whether being on your period has stopped you from doing something. I hold my hand up – it has me. Like I say, as I’ve got older I have sort of got the mindset of, other people actually go through this too, and I don’t feel as alone. With regards to tackling period issues at music events, whether it’s just a concert or it’s a week-long festival, it’s all about planning! If you feel more prepared then you’ll be more relaxed about it. Take a small side bag with all the needed items, and if like me, you get a little paranoid that there could be leakage, (even though there probably isn’t) just change to freshen up. Don’t let mother nature rule you!

    I used to be conscious when I was younger on days and trips out when younger on my cycle, I loved to win

    I definitely write off the week of my menstrual cycle, but thats mostly because I have awful migraines throughout.

    My periods have got worse the older I get, Im actually looking forward to the point where they stop altogether!

    How cool is for Bodyform to be running such a competition – it can really feel like you need to slow down when your on your period and it’s such a shame.

    I think it’s so right to push that you can anything you want as normal when you’re on your period. Having been to a lot of festivals I’ve been on a few times and while it can be horrible, it’s manageable if you’re prepared x

    I like this, just because you’re on your period, it shouldn’t stop you from doing anything! Bodies change as well…so it’s great that all the products have come in leaps and bounds over the years, because several times I’ve had to switch between towels and tampons.

    After having a baby my periods significantly improved in terms of discomfort, but the hormonal imbalances still affect my energy and mood.

    This is such a great post. After I give birth to my son. My period got worse every month. That’s why I have a menstrual calendar.

    It’s so true, the week I’m only period I just want to hibernate.. what a great campaign!

    It has stopped me doing the odd thing before, but I think the openness around the issue is changing. Like how Fu Yuanhui acknowledged it was a factor in her Olympic performance – that’s the kind of thing I like to see.

    I’ve just started having periods again at 29 and its a very weird experience getting used to it all again. I’m so frightened of leaking like I did when I was a teen! xxx

    I used to be that girl who shied away at that time of the month. As I have aged I have gotten over that and like to make the most of everything i do, period or not:)

    I used to hate doing anything during my monthly period and I always used to make my mum write me a post to get out of PE at school . Over time as I became more mature I realised periods were here to stay nad just learnt to deal with it. The bodyform VIP ticket competition sounds great.

    The joys of being woman! I remember struggling when I was young but soon realised that I was not going to stop me doing the things I enjoyed most.

    Your period should never stop you from doing things and having fun. Good for you for highlighting that!

    This sounds like a great competition and a good experience for the winner. I have irregular periods but prefer pads too and have actually used this brand is the past.
