Today sees the start of Sexual Health Week 2018. This year it is all about consent, a topic that underpins all our work on relationships, sexual health and well being.
I have joined up with Intimina and the Ziggy Cup which is the world’s first reusable menstrual cup that can be worn during sex to help promote Sexual Health Week 2018. It sets a new standard for menstrual cup innovation. Combining comfort, security and body-safe medical-grade silicone the Ziggy Cup gives women the freedom to do just about anything.
It’s that time of year again – Valentine’s Day where romancing your loved one is the supposed thing to do. If you are looking for a last minute Valentine’s Day gift I have the Ultimate Gift Guide right here. You do however need to keep in mind your sexual health and know how to protect yourself. March is the month where the most at home pregnancy tests are bought.
More than 35 million heart shaped boxes of chocolates are bought at Valentine’s. Our favourite chocolate brand Cadbury made the first box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day in the late 1800’s and this tradition still carries on strong today.
In fact did you know that men account for 73% of flower sales for Valentine’s Day. I bet most of those men only buy flowers at this time of year! Of course it’s the red rose that is the most popular flower.
The Independent Pharmacy has a brief guide available to help you with your sexual health on Valentine’s Day. Whether it be advice on performance, birth control or STI’s. It also shares lots of Valentine’s facts and figures that are very interesting!
When we started trying for a baby back in 2013, I came off the pill when my packet ran out. I started taking the pill many years ago to help with period pains and heavy flow (sorry for the tmi!). I was very happy with my type of pill – Microgynon, it really worked well. This pill was one of those combined pills so contained oestrogen and progestogen, I was always great at remembering to take it each day as well.
