I love, love, LOVE these things. For years and years prior to ordering these pads, I would find myself in the emergency room every few months. What a coincidence-- it was always during my period. Rashes, panic, allergic reactions, crazy behavior, UTI, hives, anger, red nose-- you name it, I had it. Every single doc blamed my hormones, or it was all in my head. WRONG. It was the toxic pads, omg! I've been using these Rael pads for a few months now, they are great, solved my problems. I've found they are so, so much better, very neat and clean. No toxic chemicals, latex, or any of that stuff you should never expose yourself to. Highly recommend!
