Insider Tips for Managing Your Period on the Go

Travelling during your period can be a breeze with the right preparation and strategies in place! 

Whether you're jet-setting to exotic destinations or embarking on a road trip adventure, these specific tips and tricks will ensure you stay comfortable and confident while on the move 💁🏽‍♀️

🌀Sync-in with your cycle:

Plan your trip around your menstrual cycle whenever possible – not to make your period sound like an added hassle (even though it might feel like it), but by aligning your travel plans with your cycle, you work in unison with your body’s natural cycle 

If you have flexibility in your travel dates, aim to avoid scheduling flights during the heaviest days of your period so you can minimise the discomfort 

If the dates are non-negotiable, there’s always comfy period underwear to help ease the travel anxiety 💜

It’s super absorbent and wont have you going to airport bathrooms more than you need to! Any of our Reusable Period Underwear can help you travel without the worry of surprise leaks and frequent changes. These will keep  you covered for 8-24 hours! Enough until you reach the final destination right? 🕔


🧳Pack Smart:

Nobody knows your cycle like you do, so ensure you have the right selection of Period Underwear to keep you going while travelling! ✈️

Packing a combo like the Fantastic Five can support you through your cycle – no matter how heavy or light your flow is. It has 2 pairs for Super Heavy Flow, 2 for a Heavy Flow & 1 for when your flow is either starting to taper or you’re just about expecting your period! It’s the perfect travel combo when you need all your bases covered, without falling short 🤝🏼

If it's just a weekend getaway, or a shorter trip  The Lace Trio comes in 3 (super cute) pairs, one of each absorbency level – Super Heavy, Heavy & Medium! 



Synthetic pads and menstrual care products can often cause excess moisture and heat to be trapped in your underwear. You deserve to enjoy your travels without the added discomfort of rashes, itchiness, and irritation! 😖

When choosing a Period Underwear for yourself as well – make sure to pick breathable fabrics like bamboo fiber that allow your skin to breathe and are naturally hypoallergenic in nature (suitable for sensitive skin too)! 🌸


🥜Nuts are your best bet:

Perfect time to keep some dark chocolate handy! God knows you could do with the extra boost of endorphins 🫠

Nuts are also known to be high in magnesium, healthy fats & omega-3 that help alleviate period cramps to some extent. But more importantly, they give you a boost of energy and protein to keep you going on-the-move! 💪🏼

The antioxidants in nuts can also help manage your cravings 


🙇🏻‍♀️ Pack Pain Relief:

Be proactive about managing menstrual cramps and discomfort by packing pain relief solutions in your travel kit 🥲

We ourselves are not mephthal-girlies, but there are plentyyy of on-the-go pain relief solutions out there – from small portable heat pads to cramp relief roll-ons, that work like a charm ✨



Travelling during your period doesn't have to be a hassle. By planning ahead, packing strategically, and prioritising your comfort and well-being, you can navigate your vacay with ease and confidence 💅🏼

With your basics taken care of, you'll be well-equipped to enjoy your travels to the fullest, no matter where the road takes you!
