Upon seeing the title, many preppers will be reluctant to read this article. The funny thing is that some of them stock up on tampons and menstrual pads. They do so thinking these items could stop severe bleeding caused by a gunshot or other serious injuries. Only a few of them acknowledge their mundane use, while others seem to ignore the reality about how a woman’s body works. No one talks about their main monthly use and this topic is still taboo for the men out there.
It seems that menstruation doesn’t exist for them and somehow, if they ignore it, eventually it will go away. They are used to see the ladies in their life go to the drugstore and pick up all they need. That’s pretty much all the mystery for them and they don’t ask any questions. However, in a post-SHTF world where drugstores are cannibalized of resources, the monthly cycle can become a real issue for a woman. It is no longer “her problem” and both partners should be well prepared and know how to deal with this situation.
Everything you read in this article will prove useful during a bug out situation, a natural disaster or a long-term crisis when becoming self-sufficient is the only way of making it. Menstrual cups, tampons and homemade pads will become valuable sanitary items for women. Even more, these could be useful for bartering when there aren’t many to go around.
