Menstruation is a topic that connects people worldwide. If half of the world's population is bleeding monthly, why does it often feel so lonely, uncomfortable…
Many women are embarrassed about vaginal discharge 💦, but we really shouldn't be! It's actually a healthy bodily function that indicates your vagina is doing its thing.

This keeps the vagina clean and moist and protects it from infection 😇
