Getting sorted for your first period
Let's get you sorted for your first period, and while we're at it, make it fun!
Like most things in life, being prepared is the difference between a good or a confusing experience.
At Luna, we're passionate about ensuring all girls have a positive first period experience.
Knowledge is power and education is an enabler for empowerment, so it's really important to understand the basics before you start your first periods, so that:
You know what to do when you start your first period
You know the difference between pads, tampons and liners (and when to use them)
You know why you get your period
You understand the menstrual cycle
You understand general terms related to periods
Luna's New Moon pack is a dedicated first starter kit for girls who haven't started their periods yet. It also comes with treats, ahhhhhhh, and you get an awesome package in the mail - Luna delivers NZ-wide.
The pack contains a bit of everything from applicator tampons to nighttime pads, so that you can familiarise yourself with all the different products available. Once you have a play with them, you'll see there's nothing to be afraid of.
Usually the anxiety around periods steams are uncertainty, the unknown. But with Luna, we'll make sure there aren't any surprises. Have a good read of the other blogs that cover everything you need to know.
There are also fun experiments you can do with you pack, such as dunking tampons in glasses of water to see how tampons expand when they come into contact with liquid - so much fun!
Luna is here to make this experience positive and fun (ya fun) for you. We've got your back, and know you’ve got this too!
Email us any time, there's no such thing as a dumb question!
