Learn about your body, periods, & ovulation with Luna and her cat Cookie!
The Period Blog's Luna and Cookie

The Period Blog is a global reference and resource for girls and women of all ages to learn about their bodies, periods, and ovulation. We feature in-depth feminine hygiene product reviews, photos, tutorials, and diagrams, along with educational articles on topics such as Anatomy, Beginner’s Guide to Periods, Girl Code, and STIs & other infections.

The Period Blog was founded in 2011 by Dedy Wong, after finding a lack of feminine and menstrual health resources online for young women.

Our Mission
Most people don’t speak openly about menstrual health because it is presumably vulgar but The Period Blog strongly believes that knowledge and education should not be hindered by such taboos.

The Period Blog is committed to providing accurate menstrual health information, informative feminine product reviews, and strongly supports and encourages girls and women of all ages to ask questions and support one another as we learn about our bodies.

The Period Blog strives to bring a fun and positive light to young feminine health.

Since its launch, The Period Blog has been featured on the Always facebook page and interviewed by U By Kotex.

 

“[The Period Blog] not afraid to discuss all things period.”

  1. You guys should review more generic brand stuff (ex. Up & Up, Equate, CVS brand, etc)

    • Hi Cynthia,

      Good idea! I’m looking into it :).

      Your friend,

      • I am going to use the Always all the time, both pads and tampons. I love the reviews. Another question, does anybody else annoyed when people act like sex is a dirty word? I HATE IT! We wouldn’t be here without sex unless you are a robot.

  2. Does always make a smaller version of the infinity? I find they are too long and I’m struggling to find a comparable product…

    • I would suggest the Always Ultra Thin Slender! They are the smallest Always pads, they aren’t made of the FlexFoam however but they’re quite smaller than the Always Ultra Thin Regular which I think is slightly smaller than the Infinity.

  3. I have been trying for a baby since 2014 December until today my period circle is 32 days my ovulation happen on day 21 even this month it didn’t happen I went to GO he examined me and said everything is fine,

  4. I have been trying gender selection and is not working for me please need your help.

  5. Please i need a gender selection
