1. Although this film is culturally dated,

I thought there was some good advice in it.

2. The first part was ok, you know the actual physicality of it all.

But some of the latter stuff was stereotypical bullcrap.

3. It was surprisingly good

I wonder the what the ages of the target audience was? I see what you mean though, a powder case? What the hell does that have to do with menstruation? (Oh for pity's sake, my auto correct wants to spell 'men's traction" when I slightly misspelled menstruation)



I'm also not sure what constipation has to do with menstruation specifically. "Putting pressure" on your other organs would indicate a high level blockage indeed.

And of course brought to you by Kotex. This article shows how misdirected advertising got, although to be fair, Kotex owns up to it, and made a different type of commercial

A COMMERCIAL for U by Kotex, a new line from the 90-year-old feminine care brand, opens with an actress in her early 20s who says, “How do I feel about my period? I love it.”

A print ad for U by Kotex that makes light of the embarrassment some feel about feminine products.

A TV commercial for the line features an actress parodying conventions of such ads.
She continues, “Sometimes I just want to run on a beach,” as footage shows a woman running along the shore. “Usually, by the third day, I really just want to dance,” she says, to footage of women dancing ecstatically. As blue liquid is poured on a pad in another clip, she concludes, “The ads on TV are really helpful because they use that blue liquid, and I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s what’s supposed to happen.’ ”

Which is an excellent Segway into this excellent way to save thousands of dollars over a womans lifetime, support small busnisses and reduce landfill; rewashable/reusable pads

5. LOL!

I hear ya sister. I'm in the middle of menopause right now, so far it's not so bad.

But I'm the type of person who laughs often and laughs well, so a reusable panty liner might not be a bad idea....

6. Hope you continue with the not so bad part...

Let me tell ya I had a heck of a time with it. Besides feeling just miserable & having raging hormones, my head felt like it was in a constant cloud. Made it hard to concentrate!

Glad I'm done with all that. Continued good luck to you.
