If you’ve ever menstruated, chances are you’ve stained or ruined countless pairs of underwear. No matter how diligently we aim to be in changing our pads and tampons, spills happen. Often.
Enter THINX®, the “period panties” gaining major buzz on social media for good reason. They not only help stop the monthly underwear massacre, but provide a body-safe alternative to conventional pads and tampons (which often contain risky chemicals).
I’ve admired creator Miki Agrawal’s work for some time, and recently and the chance to gab with her on Girl Boner® Radio. She’s complete awesome-sauce (totally going to embrace that pun—HA! ;)). Her socially impactful goes far beyond period problems in the U.S., helping girls in Africa stay in school and more.
In this short episode, you’ll learn:
- How THINX came into fruition and how to use them
- How problems surrounding menstruation hurt girls worldwide
- How THINX helps these girls
- Miki’s top advice for up-and-coming entrepreneurs
You’ll also hear a wonderful #AskDrMegan segment, answering a listener’s question on regaining sexual desire for her husband, when she’s only craving sex with other men. If you relate on some level, there’s so much hope to be had.
