Product description


What is this product?

An inspirational book with 250 pages containing educational information about the female anatomy, menstruation, reproductive health and more. Its main target are 12-14 year old girls but we believe that we can all learn a lot by reading this book.

Vagina Matters was written by Svetla Baeva and Raya Raeva (part of the “30 under 30” prestigious list of Forbes Magazine Bulgaria for 2020, our Founder Vera was also part of it : )

At the moment the book is available only in Bulgarian but we are looking forward to its English version coming soon.

Why do we recommend this book?

The female anatomy, menstruation, sex and reproductive health continue being taboo topics here in Bulgaria. “Vagina Matters” allows readers to find answers to many questions which get rarely discussed at Bulgarian schools because only 10% of them offer sexual education classes (according to data from the Ombudsman of Bulgaria).

In countries where sexual education is scarce the youngsters tend to have their first sexual intercourse much earlier, unwanted pregnancies, abortions and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases is much higher (data from the Bulgarian national health centre and Loveguide.bg).

The situation in Bulgaria is a graphic illustration of that:

  • Bulgaria together with Romania ranks number 1 in Europe with most cases of unwanted pregnancy amongst girls between 14 and 19 years old (WHO, UNPD);
  • Only 42% of the students can give a correct and complete answer of the question of “What is a condom used for” (Loveguide.bg);
  • 50% of the students don’t really know what a “contraceptive pill” is (Loveguide.bg);
  • The average age of first sexual intercourse in Bulgaria is 14 years old  (UNICEF).

We believe that “Vagina Matters” can help many youngsters throughout puberty and many parents to find interactive ways to start a dialogue with their teens on menstrual hygiene – suitable products to use, advice and useful information on reproductive health.

I would like to get the book as a gift, what sustainable menstrual products can I combine it with?

We offer menstrual cups, reusable organic cotton period pads and reusable period pants, you can check them all out here.
