Warning this article contains content that may be unsuitable - or at least somewhat distasteful - for people who don't have periods. But you should read it anyway.)My grandmother's mother died of cancer when she was very young. I once asked my grandmother what kind of cancer, both out of curiosity about family history and a desire to buy email list better understand my own health risks. She said she didn't know for sure, maybe cervical cancer, maybe ovarian cancer. But "people just didn't talk about those things back then." Seventy-five years later, it is normal to mention women's cancers. Even children know about breast cancer (how could they not be in Pinktober?). It has become common to see public service announcements reminding women of the buy email list importance of monthly breast self-examinations and regular cervical cancer screenings. We even see advertisements encouraging parents to vaccinate their children against HPV, the sexually transmitted disease that is commonly the cause of cervical cancer, among other health problems.Yes, the taboos surrounding conversations about women's health have slowly begun to fall. Which is understandable. Male or female, once you learn what a mucous plug is, you probably wish you didn't know.However, every biological woman buy email list of a certain age has her period. It's an unpleasant subject, and an even more unpleasant experience. It is also an important part of our reproductive health and an unavoidable part of life for a large percentage of the population, so something that should be okay to talk about, without euphemisms and without shame.Some modern marketers agree and address even the crudest women's health topics. Chief among them is a company called THINX, which makes absorbent, leak-proof period panties.
