Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkin for Painful Monthly Period

March 13, 2016

Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkin + Practical Fitness Tips from Dr. Ian Banzon. 

One of the things that I first consider when I am planning on an adventure or travel is to plot it against my monthly period. I am lucky to have such a normal cycle of 28 days, but I still get dysmenorrhea monthly. Sometimes, it restricts me from doing things and I always get conscious how I move. 
But there are times when I get invited to events and travels and I just have to deal with the “disability”. Being a woman warrior that I am, I do not let my monthly period control me. 
Jeunesse sent me a package of  Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkin and Liners to try. I was surprised with how thin and light it felt. Part of me was worried of trying it out. Thankfully, Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins come in different sizes and variants for different flow days. 
I love that it felt light (as if you were just wearing a pantyliner). Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkin also has anions that gives overall improved feeling for women who suffer from painful periods (like me).

I tried using it last month and when I got my period during #RuthGoestoBarcelona, I was surprised that I didn’t get dysmennorhea. I usually have painful period to the point that I sometimes get bedridden. When I got my period this month, it felt manageable. I was able to travel, attend events and explore the city.

 I want to share with you guys practical fitness tips courtesy of Dr. Ian Banzon. 

At a very young age of 12, Dr. Ian has always been a passionate student athlete while keeping her academics above average. Apart from these, she’s also a full-fledged Master’s Degree holder of Business Administration while subsequently competing for the Philippine water polo team at the Southeast Asian games. And just recently, she has also completed her medical degree from Ateneo de Manila University at 27 years old.

A go-getter and constantly driven by her passion for sports and fitness, Dr. Ian proves that one doesn’t have to rest on her laurels which are road blocks to exploring and learning new things. A firm believer and doer of healthy habits, Dr. Ian also remains unstoppable even during her time of the month. 

As a dedicated multi-sport, endurance and CrossFit athlete, Dr. Ian keeps it going no matter what, as long as she uses a reliable sanitary napkin like Jeunesse Anion. “With my active and busy lifestyle, I need a high-quality pad to keep me protected and comfortable. And with Jeunesse Anion, its five variants are well suited for different types of flow. For an athlete like me, I rely a lot on the ultra day pad which unbelievably stays in place despite the activities that I do. The anion strip is also a unique feature that keeps me fresh since it prevents bacteria build up,” says Dr. Ian.

For those who are asking whether or not exercising is advisable while on a period, Dr. Ian in fact, emphasizes that it isn’t an excuse to slack. “Schedule some low-key yoga or a light- cardio work out, like walking or a breezy bike ride. Although you might feel particularly out of sorts, push yourself forward because exercise gives you a natural endorphin high that can elevate the mood and actually make you feel better in no time. Another bonus is getting relief from bloat since sweating can help you get rid of extra fluids”, adds Dr. Ian.

In theory, we’d love to have a personal trainer. But in practice, Dr. Ian’s advice is: “You don’t need to have a specific background in sports or training to get started on your active lifestyle. You just need to show up, work out, and be consistent with it!” she concludes.
