Traveling always seems to induce my anxiety, not because of the transport or the traveling itself, but because of the fear that endo will rear its ugly head and try to ruin my holiday. I’ve become used to this sword hanging over my head, but I really hate the thought that endo might ruin the holiday of the people I’m away with.
Given how unpredictable my periods are (especially lately), I feel like I am always on edge just waiting for the pain to start – not exactly the most relaxing way to spend your holiday. To try and combat this, I have created a number of endo kits to bring with me that should cover every scenario.

With these different kits, I feel confident enough that I have what I need in the event of a flare up, and it helps me to relax a bit more. I do still get the fear when wearing anything white (which I love to do to show off my tan), and I have experienced more than my fair share of surprise periods whilst wearing a white bikini, but I always have something with me that I can wrap around to hide the stain. Bringing the detergent means I can deal with any stains immediately so they hopefully don’t permanently ruin my clothes.
I’ve linked some of the products I use above – just click the name of the item in the list – and I hope that these kits help you as much as they help me!
