I clearly remember when I was around ten years old having that all-important first talk with my mom about the changes that would be taking place in my body called puberty. Funny how I can remember that like it was yesterday, but I can hardly remember much from yesterday or even this morning. She handed me a little, pale blue, paperback book the pediatrician had given her that explained puberty and how my body was going to go through all these changes. She explained about the menstrual cycle, that it wasn't anything to be afraid of, and that it was all a natural part of life.
Of course I did not care for this natural part of life or the pains that went with it. She told me if I ever needed to talk to her about anything that she was there to listen. I am so grateful for that. A lot of children's parents don't discuss these matters with them.
There was no 2nd talk, but Poise brand wants to change that. Poise is introducing a new feminine wellness line with five products to help through this life stage. There is a Roll-On Cooling Gel or Body Cooling Towelettes helping you feel comfortable and refreshed. I wish I had those a couple of years ago. There are fresh panty fresheners and a feminine wash available, too. When the personal lubricant becomes available I will try it out.
I'm so glad the Poise brand wants to help women through this life stage with confidence by being the first to start The 2nd Talk . This will be a whole new way for women over forty to talk about menopause and other wellness issues along with the introduction of the new products.
Poise brand wants to rally 1 million women to pledge to have The 2nd Talk by World Menopause Day on October 18. By joining the conversation, women will gain more menopause knowledge and support.
