Power Over Periods and Staying Active in Fall


Today was the perfect Fall day: mid-60s, windy, sunny, and the leaves were turning yellow and falling. The crisp air make me feel refreshed. I love spending as much time outside in the Fall as I can. Whether it’s walking or riding my bike, not much can stop me except for one thing. My period.

I’m sharing #Tampax in my life as part of an Tampax sponsored series for Socialstars™.

Yep, that dreaded time of the month where I can’t stop eating, I have the urge to perform self-surgery and cut out my ovaries, and I am asking myself every 5 minutes “Was that a leak?” But I will not succumb to my period any longer. From now on I resolve to have power over my period and get the most out of life.


I don’t worry about my period when I use Tampax Pocket Pearl tampons. My awesome boyfriend recently bought me a bike. Confession: I hadn’t been on a bike in probably 15 years. The excuses started flooding my head. I haven’t practiced. I don’t know how to change a flat. I just got my period.


Tampax is the best tampon I have ever used, with the best absorbency and easiest applicator. I knew I couldn’t use my period as an excuse to not ride my bike. What they say is true. Getting back on a bike is, well, just like riding a bike. You don’t forget and it’s not hard. You don’t have to relearn it. Turns out, I love riding my bike!


Tampax Pocket Pearls are discreet and compact tampons, so I can fit them in my bike pouch for emergencies. They are as essential to my bike ride as my helmet, water bottle, riding gloves, and music.


Tampax gives you power over your periods so you have the power to get the most out of life. If you don’t believe me, try them out for yourself and see the difference!
