hi! i'm tayyaba.


I am a pelvic pain specialist focused on treating women with painful, heavy periods, pain dyspareunia (painful sex), or pain with tampon insertion. Before I started using Thinx, I used pads for my heavy days, and tampons on lighter days. I love Thinx because it has been life changing not to have to worry about leaking at night or through my clothes. Thinx have saved my sheets and helped me completely eliminate my need to buy disposable products.

First, I feel like I'm hemorrhaging for 2 days, and then it's light and spotty for 4 days. Go figure.

my fave styles:


I love these for workouts because I can avoid wearing a bulky pad under my yoga pants.


I love these because they combat menstrual bloating, especially on days I have plans to wear a form-fitting dress.
