GIVEAWAY: Sleep Better with NEW Always Ultra Thin Overnight Extra Heavy
It’s funny, *ahem* my period is one of those topics that I don’t think about too often. It happens every 30 days and that’s about it.
But I’ll tell you what, I always sleep HORRIBLY when I get my period. I mean, HORRIBLY. I’m uncomfortable. I’m bloated. I honestly – hate it.
While I was at P&G’s Headquarters in Cincy 3 weeks we had team leaders from the Always team and the National Sleep Foundation come speak to us about “that time of the month” and sleep.
These were the notes I took during this seminar —
Sleep and Your Period:
– Women report more sleep disturbances 3 days leading up to period and the 4 days after when women report more sleep disturbances (so true!)
– Your sleep is affected by 4 hormones – progesterone, estrogen, follicle stimulate hormone and luteinizing hormone
This is what occurs in the body during menstruation:
Cramps and pain
Yup. Check to ALL of those.
But one of the most uncomfortable things for me is the coverage during this time of the month, especially on those first few days. You need something heavy and durable.
Well, Always has done something pretty cool… and I didn’t know they had created this for women — an OVERNIGHT Sanitary Napkin.
Always is there for women during this time, especially when they have to sleep. They have the 5 pillars of protection:
– Fluid Handling
– Staying in Place
But NOW they have coming out NEW Always Ultra Thin Overnight Extra Heavy which will be available in April 2014!
I love this, now we have some options!
