Working during your period

  • Some women don’t like working during their period and take a few days off.
  • If you still have to work, you can use a sponge during your period.
  • Only use sponges specially made for this (such as Europharma, Beppie, Gynotex).  
  • Don’t use household or natural sponges.  It is not hygienic and some pieces of the sponge may stay behind in your vagina. 
  • When a woman has her period, there is more chance of passing an STI through the menstrual blood.  Keep this in mind when you have oral sex (e.g. in case of lesbian sex).
