MENOPAUSE AWARENESS MONTH | PMS, Ovulation, Mood Swings, Cramps

When I got married for the second time, my three children, my new husband, and I all

Me and my daughters, Kim and Melissa

moved in together. In his first life he had all boys, so there was no talk about periods, PMS, ovulation, period cramps, etc.  I have two girls and one boy. I was always very open with my children.  We thought nothing of walking around in our underwear and certainly Danny was use to the girls speaking about their “time of the month.”

What a revelation for Milt; “where are the tampons?”; “Oye, I have such cramps,”;  “Just to let you know I am really feeling bitchy today, I’m PMS-ing big time, so stay away!!!”; “I think I’m ovulating today!!” He would say that at any given time, one of us always seemed to have our periods.

After using many different over the counter products to help eliminate vaginal dryness, I realized that it was a quick fix and they simply did not work. Most directed women to use their product on the outside of the vagina as a lubricant.  I found them to be cold, slimy or greasy, and simply made me feel uncomfortable.  They were all re-usable and I felt that could produce a contamination and I simply did not want to use that on my private area.

Have you ever looked at the ingredients on these over the counter products, such as Replens, Poise, K-Y Jelly and Astroglide?
