Conversation, ideas and events for parents in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County

So, you know how every month Mother Nature graces you with that lovely gift of cramps, bloating, and everything else that comes with your period?  A new tampon delivery service, leparcel.com, wishes to make this monthly experience a little better by sending you their own gift. 

 

Here's how it works:

You sign up for their service and let them know the day your period is expected and they type of tampons and/or pads you use.  In return, they send you 30 pads/tampons, a special gift, and chocolate.  The service costs $15 a month, and is sent on the same day every month.

Their reasons for providing this service?

"Nature's gift stinks, so we give you a better one."

"PMS - Not so hard when chocolate covered."

They want to give you a reason to "look forward to that time of the month".

The pros I see with this:  It's always nice to get something cool in the mail.  They give you chocolate!  And a gift!  You don't have to worry about running out to the store because you were ill-prepared for your monthly visitor.  And when you're feeling bloated and crampy and depressed because it's that time of the month, this serves as the perfect little pick-me-up.

 

The cons:  Not everyone's cycle runs on the dot.  This was set up as a monthly service (every 30 days), but a "regular cycle" is actually 28 days.  And not every woman even runs this regularly.  They only allow for 30 items - what about us who receive a, um, heavier "gift" from nature?  And it's $15.  A box of tampons bought at the store costs less than $10. 

 

What do you think of leparcel.com?  Would you ever use it?
