I think that at one point in our lives, we have all been told, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Well, sometimes, that is not always how life goes. Today we’re getting into a real situation because women should never feel ashamed to talk about their reproductive health.
If my family or parents’ friends are reading this, did you know there are a million other things to read on this blog? Here’s a few of them here, like travel! For everyone else, please continue on! Sometimes, when life gives you lemons, those lemons can turn into a fruit tree, but you’re not ready to take care of that tree just yet. For those who didn’t get the metaphor, sometimes things go wrong in bed. Failed birth control, a busted condom, you name it, but life happens. Sometimes you can be prepared, but not be prepared for that situation. That’s where Preventeza ™ comes in.
Did you know that 1-in-2 women may need emergency contraceptive at some point in her lifetime? In addition, 1-in-10 women end up using that emergency contraceptive. That just goes to show you that no matter how prepared you are, things can go far from planned. This shouldn’t be a taboo topic. While I know that I have no problems talking about reproductive health, partly due to the fact that I was raised by an OBGYN, I know that not everyone has that privilege. I was really excited to work with Vagisil® on this collaboration because they are on a mission to make sure that women are never afraid or ashamed to talk about intimate health issues. They’ve been doing this for 40 years, so I think they’re doing something right!
When life throws you a curveball, you can be prepared, even when you think it’s impossible. Preventeza ™ is a one-step emergency contraceptive that you can buy over the counter, eliminating the need for a prying pharmacist. It is made with levonorgestrel, the same ingredient in birth control pills, just at a higher dose. At around $47, it costs the same as other forms of emergency contraceptive. When used within 72 hours, it can help stop an unwanted pregnancy before it starts, so you don’t have to panic. With their buy one, get one or buy one, give one offer, you and a friend can be panic-free and fully prepared at all times!
Sex shouldn’t be taboo. When it is, people don’t want to talk about issues when they happen, so it is important for me to use my platform to make everyone a little more comfortable talking about it. Vagisil® is providing a space for women across the country to not let the stigmas around sex and intimacy control our lives by providing essential information about sexual health that is often pushed to the side. By sharing this information, women can be prepared for the unexpected, especially by having a dose of Preventeza ™ on hand for when the unexpected takes place. As women, we have options (thankfully), and being prepared is powerful, so take control of the situation before it even happens!
