  • Hey guys! It's Wengie, welcome back to my channel.

  • Today I wanted to do 10 period hacks. I think these are the most practical and useful I've found.

  • So... Lets have some girly talk here.

  • It's funny that i'm posting this video now because it is that time of the month for me!

  • I've been getting headaches... I HAVE BECOME COMPLETELY USELESS AS A PERSON.

  • I don't want to do anything, I don't want to go out, just want to curl up in bed.

  • I'm really lucky because I don't get cramps anymore like I use to.

  • Did you guys know that if you spend a lot of time with someone, your periods actually SYNC.

  • If you have a close female friend, you both might be having your periods at the same time because you spend so much time together.

  • Maybe you are like period twinnies!

  • If you guys aren't already part of the family I encourage you to join!

  • Here's a welcome family hug <3

  • Since we are getting a little intimate I thought it would be appropriate that we become family members.

  • You know?

  • If you are already part of the family I love you guys! You know how we love our girly talks here!

  • Lets get this video to 20,000 thumbs up because that would be super

  • Dooper dooper dooper dooper dooper dooper dooper dooper dooper...

  • AMAZING!

  • So without further a do lets get straight to the video

  • LLLLLLLETS GOOO!

  • When you get those awful cramps and aches during your time of the month

  • A warm heat pack always makes me feel better. Or... another hack is you could always use a cat.

  • But if you don't have access to a KITTY you could make your very own personalised heat pack in about 30 minutes.

  • All you need is a tea towel or cotton material that can be microwaved. (That is super important.)

  • A sewing kit or machine. Fabric scissors and some good ol' rice!

  • Cut your material to double the size you want your heat packet to be. A great hack is to just fold it in half until you get the right size.

  • And cut around the folds by keeping tension between the fold and your scissors.

  • Or you can measure it out and outline it with some marker and cut along the outline.

  • But, i'm just super lazy. ;)

  • Then sew 3/4 sides but me AGAIN being really lazy I made it so I only had to sew 2 because 1 was already there from the fold.

  • Now, you can sew by hand or use a sewing machine. If you want to make sure it's secure you can double back your hand stitch over the same side

  • And that way you are making sure that it is NOT going to come loose.

  • Leave about a 1cm margin as well.

  • Once you've done that, flip it over so it looks like this super cute little pouch.

  • And all you need to do is fill this this pouch with rice about 3 quarters of the way up.

  • This way it still remains flexible, and easier to place over round spots LIKE MA BELLY

  • Now seal the remaining side closed with a closing stitch and throw it in the microwave for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, and it's ready to use!

  • It feels so nice and warm like a nice warm kitty :3

  • What we eat in our diet actually affects our hormones and in the end, affects the symptoms we get during our period.

  • So try eating more vegetables or becoming a vegetarian which apparently does help with periods symptoms like PMS, cramps,

  • And, just the overall tired feeling.

  • Also foods high in calcium have been shown to reduce these too and sometimes reduce it COMPLETELY.

  • Calcium can be found in Green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale. Love this stuff guys, it is SO good.

  • Also dark chocolate helps to deal with cravings and has high magnesium levels which helps reduce cramps.

  • So, hell yeah to dark chocloate!

  • How high can you go? I chicken out at the 85% cocoa range. Let me know down below.

  • OKK

  • So stains are unavoidable.

  • Like, we've all experienced it. Never EVER wash your stains with warm water.

  • It actually locks in the stain into the material.

  • You are never gonna get it out so...

  • SAY GOODBYE

  • To those undies, sheets or towels.(Or whatever you managed to destroy.)

  • Instead, use ice cold water with some peroxide or laundry powder. That will give you the best chance of getting rid of the stain.

  • But of course, we can't save everything. :(

  • Yeah, sometimes its just too strong. ;-;

  • If you don't have period undies, YOU SHOULD GET SOME.

  • Set aside maybe 5-7 pairs of undies that you don't really care about getting stained or try using dark colors like black so you can't even see the stain.

  • I love these ones by UniClo because it's made of this microfiber material, Its really quick at drying so if you need to do an emergency wash, you can do that and it will dry super quickly.

  • If you watch my vlog channel, you've probably seen me do this a lot.

  • My everyday lattee is a must but apparently caffeine is very bad for your time of the month.

  • And you get (dun dun dun) CRAMPS.

  • The caffeine leads to higher levels of prostaglandin which are the things that cause painful contractions in the first place.

  • So if this something you've experienced, replace your caffeine with something else instead!

  • Like herbal tea or juice and your uterus with thank you later. You will feel so much better. :D

  • Periods are nothing to be ashamed of but sometimes you just don't want the whole class to know you are going to the toilet to change your pad.

  • So try stuffing one in your bra in the morning!

  • So you don't have to carry anything with you when you go.

  • Also, you could try double lining your pads so that you simply rip off the top and you are ready to go with the second one.

  • This is also extremely useful if you are going somewhere and you can't carry a bag or anything.

  • ...You could even try triple lining it!

  • Knowing when your period comes is SO useful, so try tracking it.

  • I know my body so well now that i just know when it's that time of the month. I get these sudden headaches and I feel really tired.

  • But you can try apps that you can download for free from the Appstore and some of these are SOO pretty!

  • You can also go on the pill to make your period more regular if you are unpredictable.

  • And basically it starts when your sugar pills start so you know when its coming.

  • For more information of birth control I have a whole video on my own experience.

  • And don't forget to check and consult a doctor first. =^-^=

  • A great hack to avoid painful cramps! Start taking a pain killer like ibuprofen one day before you know you are going to start cramping.

  • That way you don't even need to wait for the agonizing 10-15 minutes for the painkiller to work

  • And you can just wake up, ready to go! :D

  • Yes, this thing must look strange unless you've heard of or seen a menstrual cup.

  • These things are made of medical grain silicone and collect at the... GOOD STUFF.

  • Into it so it saves you from buying pads!

  • Which means less money in the long term. And its also great for the environment because you are throwing away less waste!

  • Now, lets pretend this bottle is your... you know.

  • And it fits up there like this and created a nice seal so there is no leaking.

  • It can even handle heavy flow for like, a whole day.

  • Cus... Cus... It goes with the flow, ya know?

  • (I'll let myself out.)

  • You love me!

  • Now this is totally TMI but we are going to get intimate.

  • Sometimes heavy flow means accidental drips after your shower. >:(

  • So instead of drying yourself normally, try doing it while sitting on the toilet.

  • That way you can take your time and not worry about leaving a trail behind!

  • You can do your moisturizing routine and everything on the toilet as well,

  • So that you don't make accidental messes on the floor.

  • (You're welcome.) :)

  • So, you're chillin' and minding your own business when your red friend decides to visit you.

  • LIKE DIS.

  • Of course, at this time you don't have any pads with you or ANYTHING.

  • Well, here's a DIY hack for you if you are ever stuck in this situation!

  • Now, my go 2 solution is normally stuffing my undies with toilet paper, but this is WAAAY better.

  • Get something thick and absorbent like napkins, hand towels or even your sock if you are desperate.

  • And place it on your undies.

  • Now we are going to use a length of toilet paper to actually wrap it around your undies to keep it in place.

  • It actually feels super secure!

  • After you've done this a few times, tuck in the ends and it actually gives you a decent amount of protection.

  • Of course, don't use this as everyday pad... Unless you want to.

  • Like, i'm not judging.

  • Let me know which one is your favorite hack DOWN BELOW. Thanks so much for chilling with me this week :)

  • And I hope to see you guys, SUPER soon in my next video.

  • BYEEEEEE ~~~~ <33

  • Love u~

  • If it's that time of the month for you, I hope you feel better :3

Congratulations! You've won the Mac Book from last times give away!
