Episode 6 - Menstrual Health Management and Menstrual Cups



JARA – Halo olgeta nem blong mi Jara, Welkam long Raon Tebol Podkas, we created this
space for Ni-vanuatu women like me to speak freely on issues affecting us today, Lets
Navigate life in the islands together, join me as I speak to a new guest every episode and ask
the questions you’ve always wanted to ask, Ale umi Storian!

JARA – This project is made possible with the support of the We Rise Coalition and PACMAS

JARA – welcome to The Round Table, I’m Jara and I am here with the Sista comms team,


JARA – and Sharon

SHARON – Hello

JARA – today’s episode is based on ‘Menstrual Cups’, so it is very uncommon apart from the
Tampon and Pads, also known as Stayfree also our reusable pads, menstrual cups are very
uncommon, which we are going to be talking about in this episode
– So, from what I’ve known, ever since I’ve grown up in Vanuatu talking about
menstrual products even menstruation itself is actually a TABOO!
– So why do you think actually talking about it would actually make a change? Like it
would actually bring empowerment to the women in the communities especially
when we talk about Menstrual Cups?

ELSIE – I think its just yeah like in the past its been very Taboo even now there’s like still allot
of people who are I don’t know scared to talk about it or feel like very uncomfortable they
don’t want to talk about it, but its something that should be talked about because its normal
to have your period for a woman to have her period for a young girl to have her period its
not something that you know we should be disgusted about or yeah like feel uncomfortable
to talk about and I feel if we normalize the conversation we’re empowering young women to
be like okay yes this is normal, these are the menstrual products that are available to me and
that will work for me and will help me just basically have a good life like we know some
young girls especially long ol rural areas, who will not go to school because they are on their
period and so their missing out o the basic necessity of education because one they don’t
feel like they can go to school, two they maybe don’t have access to these period products
or maybe they just feel ashamed because they are like oh I’m going through this I shouldn’t
be at school I don’t feel comfortable to go to school, so its something that we need to
normalize because its normal like I really, I don’t understand why its Taboo, I know there are
so many different cultural

JARA – beliefs

ELSIE – yes beliefs why they see it as Taboo but I feel like that’s something we need to
change and it only starts when you know someone stands up and says this is normal, these
are the product that are available and we need to start talking about it.

JARA – I think one of the, like one reason why this is very Taboo is because we consider it as
dirt blong ol woman we ikam aot long bodi blong hem so people are very scared or
sometimes oli fil uncomfortable blong oli tokabaot wetem ol narafala woman so wan risen
why mi ting se menstruation and talking about menstrual cups and products could actually,
it’s actually Taboo is because ol man oli, like you know hao tijing blong umi taem umi smol
ikam anta ol pipol long komuniti they actually see that no woman yia taem we i luk sik blong
hem, hem bae I no tajem kakae and hem bae ino allow blong mekem Hemia no wokbaot
raon wetem wan man ol samting olsem yia because it actually, hem I, afta, during, with that
behaviour like all of a sudden ikam wan natural behaviour long yumi naoia that yumi luk se
no taem wan woman I luk sik blong hem hemi sud ko long we o taem we hemi luk sik blong
hem bae hemi sud haetem wanem we hemi stap mekem cause it’s you know, bae hemi
uncomfortable long ol man o bae oli luk toti like disgust and then overtime ol woman tu oli
feel like no I tru bae mi sud, mi kipim long mi wan and stuff like that

SHARON – so I want to, mi jes wantem kivim 2 vatu tingting blong mi nomo long discussion
blong umi so we’re talking about like culture and tradition, belief, yeah like you both said it,
its common in Vanuatu for, yumi luk sikmun (Period) o period olsem wan Taboo samting and
from what I heard the other day during our discussion, mi jes save yia nao se sam long ol
aelan blong yumi taem we wan woman I kasem period blong hem o taem hemi kasem
sikmun (period) blong hem bae man nao bae hemi stap wok long haos wtem ol pikinini and I
think that is a very gentle way of, blong sowem appreciation blong yu o

JARA – and support

SHARON – yes long like hadwok blong wan mama o long ol wok we hemi stap mekem long
haos, I feel like, to me personally I think it’s a really good way of showing your act of
kindness to your daughter or your wife

JARA – that’s true

SHARON – yeah, and like blong brokem stikma yia nom oblong no mekem yumi luk olsem se
wan Taboo samting, mi luk olsem se hemi wan, hemia nao olsem mi talem olsem wan difren
wei bakeken blong umi lukluk period not because it’s, wan dirty samting not just because
hemi kasem period blong hem hemi minim se no hemia hemi toti istap ya bae yumi no, ino
se hemi toti istap be olsem se yumi no

JARA – Respect like you know the type of

SHARON – Yes rispektem boundary blong hem because you know when you get your period,
you’re moody, and you know you have your days, and I swear some men, some boys will not
understand so yeah.

JARA – well that is true, like I said last time on our discussion like sometimes hemi kam tu
long the way we yumi bringim up ol pikinini blong yumi, I feel like Taboo in a way is good
because hemi keepim ol boundaries between ol man mo ol woman but also in a way hemi
mekem ol woman oli very cautious about what they do and they feel like no I should do that
from mi mekem hemia it causes limits like you know hemi mekem ol limit long ol woman mo
l man tu at the same time.

JARA – so wan samting tu hemi kamap hemi hygiene blong yumi, the way we handle stuff, I
know for one that samtaems taem umi mekmem ol samting during our periods we have to
be cautious about our nails and stuff like that from se, I don’t know but like taem mi grow up
like heard like samtaem sapos mifala istap and then like spos wan I luk sik (period) blong
hem afta oli talem se o bae hemi no tajem kakae afta bae mi se from wanem nao hemi no
save tajem kakae afta bae oli se no from hem I posen you its poisonous what we’re holding
is poisonous

SHARON – yeah

JARA – so spos hemi tajem kakae blong hemia bae ol man yia oli kakae probably bae oli save
ded and then that’s what I heard and I was like wow and I believed that like mi bilif long lem
so it was like okay that’s true and so when I got my period I was like, I have to cut my nails,
keep it clean and you know I was like okay bae mi no mas tajem kakae from spos mi tajem
someone might die you know and its very bad cause like

SHARON – yeah, I get that to, I would get my period and then my nails would be dirty and
then I won’t touch the food but then I’m thinking again like would that make a difference if I
just wash my hands?

JARA – mmhmm True

SHARON – you know

JARA – touch the food

ELSIE – wash your hands with soap and water which is something that allot of us already
have access to but I think before

JARA – yumi nogat
ELSIE – Yes yumi nogat soap, yumi nogat wota and so that’s probably one of the ways like
many many years before why they would say okay bae hemi no tajem kakae from se she’s
on her period o hemi luk sikmun (period) blong hem and you know living in a community or
a village everyone bae I kam in blong help blong mekem kakae and that was probably one
way for them to be like okay bae hemi no tajem kakae because she’s on her period we don’t
have water, we don’t have soap like there could be the possibility of her getting people sick
JARA – yeah true
ELSIE – but today like that’s not the issue we all, like there’s water, there’s soap, there’s
hand sanitizer that we can use but I feel like, which like I’m not even saying like it’s a bad
thing because I know some of my friends that have used it like just trying to get out of like
cooking or something they’ll be like oh sori bae mi no save tajem kakae
SHARON – (giggle)
ELSIE – and then everyone’s like oh okay and so it’s still a thing like today like people
JARA – mhm
ELSIE – will be like women will use, which is fine like I’m not saying it’s a bad thing
ELSIE – like if you don’t want to cook on your period don’t, you shouldn’t you know feel like
you have to cook
SHARON – yeah
ELSIE – because like Sharon said, periods are like a whirlwind
SHARON – yeah
ELSIE – you get mood swings and all of that. My moods swings get pretty bad sometimes and
I’m just like I don’t want to cook and I’ll get so upset because they’re like where’s the dinner
and I’m like, leave me alone and I don’t want to, I’ll just lock myself in my room but that’s
another story
ELSIE – but yeah so, I think that’s why the whole thing of like oh bae mi no tajem kakae and
it’s just something that yeah has somehow managed to
JARA – yeah
ELSIE – come to the present
SHARON – yeah, I think that’s part of the, part stigmas as well huh,
JARA – yeah
SHARON – like yumi get use long hem nao oli stap talem se taem yu gat period blong yu, yu
wantem tajem kakae no han blong yu toti so naoia yumi get use long hem nao taem yu
wantem, yu no wantem mekem kakae be yu talem nomo se yu stap long period blong yu.
Jarah- yeah, it happens also lo house kaenea taem weh wan emi she ohh it’s your turn to
cook, and I would say owhh no I can’t because mi stap long sik belong me. I’m sorry but I’m
not gonna touch food. Yeah, and even naoia ol pikinini weh oli come up too they believe that
and its uhhm. Like they said its part of the stigma and one way of also breaking it is for
people to understand. Ol man not just women to understand themselves but men also help
in understanding, so back to our topic.
Jarah – Why do we use menstrual cups?
Elsie – that’s a good question, I think we should use menstrual cups like you said its not a
common product fulap long yumi oli no save wanem yah menstrual cup, but it’s a great
product and like I use menstrual cups and it’s been a game changer, I’ve been using it since
2019(2019, 2018 and it’s been a game changer for me it has completely changed my life. I
mean I don’t have worry about accidental leaks, you know having to worry about, if my pad
is on correctly or do I have to continuously go and change on It, but yeah, it’s a great product
nd its completely changed my life and I know other women who, ol woman Vanuatu weh
olgeta tu oli usum and its cg=hanged their lives as well. It just easy to use and yes verry
Jarah- yeah. Okay Sharon what do you think?
Sharon- okay I am a soon to be menstrual cup user, so I think this is a great idea to have a
discussion about menstrual cups just because like you guys said in Vanuatu, we know about
stay-frees and tampons but we, I mean for me and I know that most of the women don’t
know that there are other menstrual products. So, I think this is a great idea to start this
conversation and as well for me, cause I’m looking forward to using my menstrual cup.
Jara- okay.
Sharon – so yeah definitely looking forward to this discussion.
Jarah- why do you think using menstrual cup improves hygiene you know, especially when it
come to menstrual cups like there are other products like tampons, pads, reusable pads and
now menstrual cups right now that is uncommon but it will be common soon cause I’ve seen
like multiple girls using are right now, it going to be common soon so we have to talk about
Elsie and Sharon- agreeing.
Jarah- Why is good to use menstrual cups in terms of hygiene?
Elsie – one like to. Probably people are going to research this when they look it up, but to
insert the menstrual cup you’d have to use your fingers and so with that you’d have to make
sure that you wash your hands. But its just more hygienic and its more discreet with pads
you know you have to roll it up, make sure you put in the rubbish bin not flush it down the
toilet or put down the toilet cause then, obviously it gets clogged.
Jarah- gets clogged.
Elsie- yeah Sharon yeah long peles yah it gets clogged, beh lo ol rural communities weh
olgeta oli gat ol toilet weh it doesn’t use the septic tank uhhm like putting it down there may
cause like many different issues. So, its discrete, good hygiene. Lo sense seh hemia inokat
rubbish or any kind of trace she you stap long period blong you.
Jarah – yeah, that is true like having to use menstrual cup also improves our hygiene, like
you know it helps us have good hygiene, because like you said when inserting the cup you’d
have to use your hands and also pulling it out you still have to use your hands it has to be
extra clean, cause by you Pusum hand blong you igo insaed long body blong you and it is
verry important that you keep it clean cause sapos hemi no clean bae save causem toti and
sicknesses, stuff like that. Menstrual cup really does impruvum hygiene blong man, when
you use a pad, you’d have to wrapem up good.
Sharon – after you wrapem up pad you have to do this and then you’d have to do that and
then you’d have to do this and you have to do that and yeah.
Jarah – yeah
Elsie – but its also like the sound.
Jarah and Sharon (agreeing)
Elsie – I remember in school I would go into the toilets when there is nobody around, cause
like stripping the pads of your underwear like there is this, owhh my God I hated the sound,
please lord I don’t want anybody to be in here.
Jarah – yeah
Elsie – and then I would wrap it up and hold on to it and then I would just dispose of it at
home. And that is how bad it was, like uncomfortable I was with it, until I was like id had to
hold on to it until I dispose of it at home.
Jarah- yeah, yeah what about you Sharon?
Sharon – yeah. I’ve had my experiences with the sound thing because I live with boys in my
house and for a period of my life, uhhm, I was always me and my mom or I would always get
instructions form her, and every time I go to the bathroom, I would play some music.
Jarah and Elsie – yeah, that’s a good idea.
Sharon- so yeah, you can do your thing, warp it up with newspaper and then put it in
another bag and then another bag, see like there is a lot of steps into that.
Jarah – yeah especially when you have to dispose of it you have to be verry careful.
Sharon – and its so uncomfortable like, what if my brothers are hearing me and like what’s
going on in their minds and like they would probably think I’m opening a bag of Twisties just
sitting in the toilet and just eating.
Jarah – all by yourself.
Sharon – and doing my own thing in there. But then like over time I’ve grown up abo=it and
naoia mi tekem olsem wan normal samting.
Jarah – yeah that is verry good, way weh umi brought up I mekem umi vey cautious and by
mekem umi sam blong Karem out ol samting olsem yah and even like telling other girls, like I
don’t know about you guys but mine came early around the last semester lo class six blong
me and it was like it was hard and private, I be like owhh my god I have to go home early. So
yeah, I am a take homer too, I take my stuff and dispose of it at home too.
Sharon – you guys did you guys get the talk? Uhhm the period talks before you got your
Jarah- I got it when I got my period
Elise- actually my mom got me this book that talks about puberty and stuff and what I would
expect. So, when I got my period, I was like owhh I’m on and my mom and she was like
owhh owhh okay that’s okay I got the pads and everything but like do you know how to use
it and I was like yeah. But I was like why is it happening now, I wasn’t ready. I mean I feel like
I was ready but I wasn’t ready.
Jarah- yeah
Sharon- I think it’s the same reaction my mom got when I was on my period as well. She was
like whoa whoa okay, okay. How are we gonna do this what are we going to do now. And I
was freaking out, but then everything went well.
Jarah- whoa yeah
Sharon- yeah
Jarah- and that is what I’m saying, like talk are very important that ol parents oli contribute
wetem ol knowledge blong how blong usum ol menstrual product and what to expect from
it, cause me afta weh mi luk nomo mi out my mom saw it because I wasn’t planning on
telling her and she was like hey I saw what you did, come over here.
Elsie- owhh really
Sharone – caught you red handed. Hehe
Jarah- and that’s the type of something weh yumi mekem taem yumi luk sik blong umi. And
speaking of that umi long Vanuatu we have different areas like urban and rural and when it
comes to using menstrual cup, like mi no save like lo ol Nara woman long ol community, but
for me living in a village it is different from living in a like urban the changes in an
environment, so probably by also contribute to the type of products we use and also how
we dispose of hem, so I would like to get like you know at least some points from you guys,
like experiences on how we use stuff like especially when it come to using a menstrual cups,
like what are advantages and disadvantages of using a cup, especially time you go long wan
rural area bai you usum olsem wanem and especially when your using flush toilets and bush
Elsie- I think you know using menstrual cup, you using it long wan urban area is dead easy.
Like all you need is private bathroom and running water something we all living in an urban
area would have access to and like out I the community and outer areas using the menstrual
cup I feel like because all you really need is a cup of water and it also depends if the
community or village has access to that. Cause I know ikat plante uhhm community long ol
outer island blong umi oli nokat access to water, but if you have access to clean water like
wherever you are long Vanuatu, you can use the menstrual cup because that is they key
where you can continue to use it.
Jarah- what about you Sharon?
Sharon – I think it would be much easier olsem weh Elsie talem like outside long ol rural
areas taem weh you disposem ol pads it doesn’t look nice for the environment, even if you
putum long ol yellow plastic bag yah it doesn’t look. no, it still doesn’t look sanitary.
Jarah- It still doesn’t look sanitary
Sharon- one thing when using menstrual cup, because I know that when we go swimming
sometimes when I’m on my period, pa mi Karem big packet blong pad, I got to be prepared
and so I would put it in a black plastic bag and then in my clothing bag and that’s already a
lot of work for me aye.
Jara – yeah(giggles)
Sharon- and then when to take it off, ale time mifala go long salt-water id have to take it off,
wrap it and you know now where do I put it, where do I dispose it if I’m at a beach
somewhere, you don’t see a sign where they say there’s the rubbish.
Jarah- yeah
Elsie- one something to mi luk she olgeta lo island inokat ples blo rubbish blo olgeta. blong
yumi emi etas beh blong olgeta inokat, so using the menstrual cup. that’s one thing its
environmentally friendly, cause you’re disposing or have to look for somewhere to dispose
of your rubbish. And long some beaches weh bai yumi look ol stay-free pads there just on
the beach because there isn’t any place to dispose them properly.
Jarah – true
Elsie- That’s another uhhm good point, to why I think its important for more woman to use
menstrual cups.
Jarah- true, mi live long Pango and the village weh mi live long hem it is good, but ill tell you
it is full of dogs. And that is one problem weh umi stap facem nayah like especially mifala
long house when you dispose of diapers (because I have kids) and pads you mas ples weh bai
you putum good plastic blong toti blong you,
Sharon- like one of those?
Jarah- yeah, and we have that but if the rubbish truck delays or whatsoever olgeta dog oli se
mak wantaem. Like yeah let’s go tear that bag. And its very toti and disgusting, if I may say.
And sometimes long morning you wake-up and moms gonna be like oii ufala dog oli Pullum
toti wan go re-collect.
Elsie- owhh My God.
Jarah- owhh my lord not me, and she would be like you, Jarah go, and sometime taem me
sleep yet and time blong go pikimap toti. And then there is me with another plastic bag and
its expensive.
Elsie – yeah it is.
Jarah- because you would have to get another bag, like you know to repack olgeta from one
bag and out it back into the other bag. And it is expensive and emi toti tu After we mi tekem
I’m not allowed to even touch my kid id have to go swim fastaem. and like retake a bath.
And it is like I’ve said emi different long both rural and urban areas. So that is an advantage
to blo menstrual cup, so I think using a menstrual cup is actually hygienic.
Jarah- what would be your experience as menstrual cup user?
Elsie- uhhm, olsem me talem finis I have been a user since 2018 -2019, and my experience so
far has been positive so and it’s changed my life, I can do what I want to do. And I remember
when I first I was introduced to it. And my mother basically came up to me and told me and
there is this new menstrual product and it environmentally friendly and its gonna last long
time and you don’t need to buy a new one every time. It’s called a menstrual cup, and I wad
like whether hell is a menstrual cup and, in my mind, I visioning the cup nd when she gave it
to me, she was very sweet about it. And she was like you don’t have to use it if you don’t
want to, but you know just have research and just take your time with it. And in my mind, I
was like owhh my God what if it gets stuck in there, cause like it’s a cup and in my mind, I
didn’t know anything about it, and my mother came up to me and said this is a new
menstrual product and let’s try it and I was like excuse me I don’t even know what you’re
talking about and I think this is that every woman would think, like what first comes to mind
when you think about it is what if it gets stuck. Like I’m scared and that’s, that’s how I
reacted and like if it gets stuck and I was thinking of the process like I’m gonna have to go to
the doctor and its going to be a huge thing and I didn’t want any of that, but I basically. After
my mom tried it, she basically came to me and said look don’t worry about it and it was fine
and just do it at your own pace so I think waited like a couple of days before I eventually
went on and tired it and yeah, I never looked back. I use my menstrual cup when I get period
now and it’s been great like no problems what so ever and like ladies no it does not get stuck
it will come out okay don’t worry.
Sharon – owhh okay thank you.
Jarah- laughs, and like yeah that is actually true, like most girls after me askem lo olgeta she
your harem wanm yah menstrual cup and you bin usum?
And they like nope but even sapos me save wanem yia menstrual cup, mi tingseh bai mi
fraet blong usum and I think from hemi wan big jump from using stay-free pads to tampons
to cups and from some girl oli fraet finis long tampons. And everyone is a regular user blong
stay-free pads, and what are the cost anyways if you wantem compare cost blong olgeta?
What do 800you think from what I’ve seen and head buying pads, praes blong hem probably
hemi 80-vatu and reusable pads ia tu 500-650 vatu long mamas’ life and tampons it depends
lo price blem 300-900vatu, pants and menstrual cups 3600vatu lo Etam and reusable pants
its 1800 vatu 2200 vatu it depends on how much you want.
Jarah- what do you think about the prizes? Like if you were to compare the price of
tampons, pads and menstrual cups?
ELSIE- I think like the menstrual cups is like your spending, like it is quite expensive 3600 vatu
at Etam and that’s for you for the next eight ten years for a menstrual cup and its gonna last
you for that amount of time. But if you spent 80-120vatu on stay-free pads and if you
calculate that, it adds up and you end up spending
Jarah- more
Elsie- yeah more because, your gonna have to continue with this for the rest of your life.
Sharon- you got to keep paying
Jarah-yeah like almost every month
Elsie-exactly and so, like cost wise you’re gonna be spending a lot of money spending as for
the period underwear, I think that like a new menstrual product I think fulap oli harem finis.
Beh oli no, olsem menstrual cup they’re like what is this product and like is it really gonna
hold all those bloods but that’s the thing. There is like 1800vatu -3000 vatu for the next 7
years and so its just thinking about its long term like for me I would be spending to then
have it last for the next ten years instead of having to purchase a menstrual product every
Jarah- that is basically it like when you pem wan menstrual cup price are the amount weh
bai you pem lo wan stay- free every year. Dipping it long hot water otherwise your set to go
throughout your menstruation.
Jarah- so what do you think Sharon?
Sharon- owhh no I’m just listening and I think it’s a verry good bargain I wouldn’t want to be
spending 100vatu on stay-free and tampons.
Jarah- its gonna be a major loss especially for you.
Sharon- I could be saving a lot of money.
Jarah- money yah you save seem afta you save pem wan gudfala something lem began.
Sharon- or I could buy myself a cup and buy another period pants and then I save double
Jarah and Elsie- yeah (agreeing).
Jarah- it is funny and kind of interesting. Like sapos you comparem ol price blong ol
menstrual product. Blo menstrual cup is verry cheap compare to the others. I’m not saying
that its bad or anything but if you play your cards right, you’re actually spending less.
Sharon- if you’re feeling like you’re not ready for menstrual cups and pants or whatever at
least save up for it. Afta you can pay for your pads. Buts you never know when your gonna
run out of cups.
Elsie- yeah.
Jarah- yeah.
Sharon- owhh and like the other year I heard they were gonna ban diapers.
Elsie- yeah, they never pulled through with that one.
Sharon- owhh that never happened.
Elsie- yeah, they never pulled through with it, but it was a big thing, like heaps of people in
Facebook basically because there was a, I think it was a guy that brought it up to banned the
plastic bags, takeaways and straws.
Sharon- owhh yeah, yeah.
Elsie- I think its because the diapers at the beech and people not putting it well and then
people were like no what are you talking about your not the one you know, like you’re a
man. And yeah.
Sharon- at least he got a point right.
Where do you think we guy these menstrual cups?
Elsie- so its at Etam for 3600vt I know it may sound a little expensive, but that’s you set for
the next 10 years. And period underwear it’s at Etam as well. For anyone listening. You can
buy them at villa only. Again, there is different sizes which can hold different types of flow,
so whatever works for you. Peh ol pads wetem tampons blo you, you save pem long any
store either Chinese or bon marche for 80-300 vatu. The reusable pads you can purchase it
at mamas’ life and I think they do community works as well so sapos olgeta come pass long
community-oriented blong you, beh chance blong you wantaem blo karem one blong you.
Jarah- I think its really good that we are talking about menstruation, pads, cups and in one
way it also breaks the stigma on menstruation and shame and woman can speak freely on
the problems and situations affecting them in their community.
Elsie- I really agree with you this has been such a great conversation, and I really enjoyed it a
but yumi come blo talk about ol menstrual products and these are products that are
available to us and we are not saying this blo forcem ol woman too use these cups it gonna
change your life, no. But we are talking about because we know there are other woman out
there who don’t know about the products available, the cup but want to hear about the
cups and maybe then can it empower them to give it a go. When I was first introduced into
the cup and I didn’t know anyone else who used it, spoke about it and anyone who would
want to talk about it and hopefully this conversation helps other woman to go out there to
do their research and hopefully if they feel comfortable enough, they can use it themselves
and its totally fine.
Jarah- okay yeah that is totally true we’re just tying to open up possibilities on different
menstrual product and what and how to used them to widen their options on different
menstrual product.
Sharon- uhhm I just want to say that, I would like to thank you guys for having this
conversation because actually one of the things a picked out in here is that for a period, for
like for us woman taem yumi kat period blo yumi and that’s other insecurities blong yumi.
And especially when we are using one or two menstrual products that we are conformable
with so like pads and I don’t know about tampons but, reusable pads and I think it’s a great
idea to even widen the discussion of using other menstrual products so we are more aware
of it. Cause nayah we hemi stap, like for me for me. Me usum ol something koko beh nayah
me wantem traem wan niu fala something nao, so it’s a good change. Like Elsie said, sapos
you wantem usum wan period pad or cup, mifala no forcem you, just go at your own pace,
do it and all pricing yah olsem hemi mentionem yah you can save up for it and pay for it afta
leko istap and you no need blong usum nayah. Taem weh you feelim she time blem I stret
aleh you save go usum yah nao. Yah emi wan really gudfala discussion, thank you guys.
