Thank you for writing this! I'm of the opinion that more people should talk about the experience of having a vagina, which is probably why I'm the friend who is always causally bringing up periods in conversation with friends. I only recently discovered sustainable alternatives to disposable tampons/pads, and now I'm like, "Where has this been all my life?!" and "Did you know?!"

There is still so much I don't know. (For instance, up until I read this post of yours several minutes ago, I had no idea the vaginal speculum could be stored warm! Why aren't more doctors doing so? Are they all sadists?!)

Thank you again! Let's all keeping talking about our vaginas.

Thanks for sharing your experience, Anika! I know. The speculum is freaking cold against my vagina, gosh! I'm glad you found the sustainable menstrual products that you like. They should definitely be talked about and promoted more.
