When it comes to periods, it’s often considered “gross” or “TMI” to talk about it. But recently being diagnosed with endometriosis, talking about periods is my new normal. Does that make talking about periods the new black? When it comes to U by Kotex® FITNESS*, it sure does…

Nothing should get in the way of fitness – from bad cramps to heavy flow, to emotional ups and downs that come thanks to hormones. U by Kotex® FITNESS* understands that each woman defines fitness in her own unique way. I define fitness as being healthy, emotionally and physically, while doing activities that enhance my body + spirit equally.




When it comes to working out around your period, it’s important to listen to your body. For me, my flows are SUPER HEAVY, so I enjoy yoga, walking, and stretching. It’s next to impossible for me and my endometriosis to do anything physically excruciating while Aunt Flow comes to visit. So, I personally love these moves by Yoga Journal when it’s that-time-of-the-month. I also lean on Heal with Food’s recipes for reducing menstrual cramps which you can find here. 

What are the best meals to eat while on your period? The ones that are “supercharged with anti-cramping nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, calcium, zinc, magnesium and B vitamins” (Heal with Food, 2017).




So, back to going with the flow (literally)..the new U by Kotex® FITNESS*’ products feature dual-flex zones on pads and liners and are packaged so cute (and practical) with a FITPAK* for tampons and a little drawstring-top packaging so no pads ever escape into the abyss of your purse or luggage.
