Lady Business: Why Australia Needs A Period Help Centre

Has your period arrived like a punch in the face (and uterus), forever ruining your beautiful, new luxurious designer white lingerie?

Take heart, sister – the exact same thing is happening to millions of other women right now. Small comfort, I know.

I have long though there should be an emergency period help centre for PMSing women and those who’ve just started their period.

“Excuse me, is that the Period Help Desk? I need 20 packets of Tim Tam, a hot water bottle, a packet of Nurofen and a vat of chardonnay right now!

“Oh, and I also need you to take my husband far, far away!”

And while as far as I can tell no one’s actually launched this service in Australia – sad face – some bright sparks in the US have stolen my idea, sorry, launched genius business The Period Store via theperiodstore.com.

But before you get too excited about a cool monthly package service that allows you to choose awesome lady products from around the globe – they don’t actually ship to Australia just yet, but easy tiger, they’re working on it.

The cool and clever New-York based start-up allows you to customise your monthly package, to coincide with your menses, whereby you can choose from traditional, alternative, international and/or eco-friendly period products.

Want something decadent and sickly sweet? Or how about some super-comfy period undies? Heat therapy for your poor, sore lady parts? The Period Store has it all and more.

You can also pre-order a thousand pads and tampons so you never run out and instead have to rummage around in your bathroom cabinet on a desperate hunt for “feminine hygiene products” when your period unexpectedly arrives in the middle of the night.

Oh the frigging joys!?

God damn, I wish I’d thought of this online store first! It’s awesome, in my opinion and we desperately need The Period Store to start delivering to Australia.

Anyone want to start a petition?!

What do you think – would you buy a monthly care package via a period store?
