We're back!

Season two of the Drum Sex podcast is all about reproductive health. From periods to using contraceptives, getting an abortion or choosing to have a baby, we're discussing all the details you should know. 

So, what do you use? Tampons, pads or a menstrual cup?

There are many ways to manage your period, debates over which product is the best will always happen. 

The truth is, it depends on the menstruator but there are pros and cons to using each one. 

In this episode, we are joined by author, TEDx speaker and menstruation activist Candice Chirwa.

She tells us about her new book Flow: The Menstruation Book and why there is no such thing as the "most hygienic" period product.
