How to Survive Your Period While Traveling

While there’s no denying that traveling can be delightful, it can also be hard on the body. The first week or so of a trip might be just o.k., but before you know it, you’re boiling hot, bloated, and cramping. So, it’s no wonder that many people suffer from some pretty nasty travel-related issues.

Sometimes, it’s not only difficult to travel, but it’s also impossible to avoid it. This is especially true if you’re a woman. At any given point in time, millions of girls are traveling the world. If you’re tired of the uncomfortable and distressing experience of your period, but you still want to travel, here are some tips on how you can survive your period while traveling:

  • Bring Some Comfortable Clothing

You know you are going to be traveling in the near future, so now is the time to start thinking about packing your travel clothing. There are a lot of great places to vacation around the world, but sometimes you need to take some clothing items with you. However, you don’t always know what the weather will be like where you are going to be when you leave, so you may need to pack a jacket or two.

Traveling can be especially tough on your body when it comes to periods. For years, women have complained that they have to carry their pads around for days at a time. It’s not only a hassle, but it can also be uncomfortable as well. So, if you’re going on a trip anywhere in the future, it’s best to be prepared with a comfortable pair of period panties.

  • Make a Plan Ahead

Not a day goes by without someone asking me how to pack for a trip. We always know that packing will be stressful, and it will always end up with a lot of stuff that we don’t know what to do with.

With the fear of traveling still fresh in your mind, now is the time to re-read the safety guidelines from the travel agency and prepare for your trip. Make sure to bring an emergency supply of tampons, sanitary pad(s), toothbrushes, toothpaste, any prescriptions you might need, and even some suitable clothes for wearing while on the road. Dress for the weather in your destination, even though you might not be in the sort of climate you’re used to. Also, pack all the things that you can’t fit under your clothing. The last thing you want is to pack a toiletry kit for a trip and then find that your bag is too heavy.

  • Make A Plan B

Plan A and Plan B are a couple of the most frequently used phrases in our daily lives. When planning out our day, we normally refer to our plans as “Plan A,” and we switch to Plan B when those plans start to go astray. But what happens when we have a Plan A, but that Plan is not 100%? Likewise, what happens when we have a Plan B, but it looks unlikely that it would come to fruition?

Traveling can be an exciting time, but it also carries the risk of getting sick. Every traveler is warned to be wary of germs, carry hand sanitizer, and avoid contact with strangers, but most people take little precaution against their most dreaded foe: the menstrual cycle. When you’re on the road, it can be hard to take the time to wash your hands and change your tampons. The consequences of not doing so can be too high to risk-or too embarrassing to admit.
