The Hazel Edit: Women's Health Month

The Hazel Edit: Women's Health Month

May is Women’s Health Month, something we take super seriously at Hazel. And as you know, we embrace everything that comes with being a woman – from periods and painful sex to perimenopause and pelvic floor dysfunction. For this month’s Hazel Edit, we rounded up some of the most innovative products and services that make living your best life a whole lot easier. 

For when your period is like clockwork (or not)...

Hummingway Cycle Soother

Adhere these holistic patches to combat painful menstrual/ovulation cramps and bloating during your period. For best results, they recommend wearing them for 24 hours at a time, and you can totally sweat, shower, and sleep with them on. 

Cora Menstrual Disc

This super-easy to insert/remove silicone disc holds the equivalent of 5-7 tampons, can be re-used for up to 10 years (yay for the environment), and allows for mess-free period sex. Oh, and once it’s in, you’ll forget it’s even there. 

For when you’re TTC or bringing home baby…

Modern Fertility Hormone Test

This comprehensive at-home test (the same one offered in clinics for a fraction of the price, as they are often not covered by insurance) checks a panel of 7 hormones to determine your ovarian reserve, thyroid levels, menopause timeline, and potential egg freezing or IVF outcomes, as well as flags PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome).

Frida Postpartum Recovery Essentials Kit

When shit gets real, Frida Mom has your back (well, actually your perineal area). Their brilliantly-designed products address all the issues you’ll face after a vaginal birth – Upside-Down Peri Bottle, Disposable Postpartum Underwear, Instant Ice Maxi Pads, Witch Hazel Pad Liners, and With Hazel Healing Foam. Your vag will thank you. 

Bodily C-Kit

A selection of items that helps you heal after a C-section – including a high-rise panty that protects the incision and a belly band that comfortably holds you in – is a gift to yourself when it comes to recovery.


Giving birth (vaginally or via C-section) is downright brutal on your body. And if you don’t take care of any damage done, it can lead to incontinence, painful sex, separated abs, and pelvic organ prolapse. Origin exists to get ahead and prevent this from happening with physical therapy for the pelvic floor and more – either virtually or at one of their locations. 


It takes a village, and you can find yours on this app that connects women to a community, based on their current life stage (fertility, pregnancy, motherhood, menopause). Trust, it’s the network you never knew you needed but will soon wonder what you did without it. 

For when you’re anywhere near or in the thick of menopause…

Mina Hormone Testing Kit

This at-home test measures your AMH (Anti-Mullerian Hormone) levels (a key indicator to your ovarian reserve) to determine your menopause timing or the phase you’re currently in. All it takes is a simple finger prick (they walk you through it), and they send you personalized results on what you can expect.

Modern Age

Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you have to look or feel older. Modern Age exists to empower you to age well through guidance, treatments, products, and prescriptions across skin, hair, bone and hormone health. Book an in-person or virtual consultation (in NYC only currently), and you’ll work together on a custom plan. 

Better Not Younger Hair Thickener

This double award-winning spray is like magic. Skin-nurturing safe ingredients nourish and support the scalp and follicles while giving a boost at the root that makes hair instantly look so much thicker and fuller. 

Me. No. Pause.

A natural, hormone-free supplement that truly works in combating symptoms resulting from changing hormones during menopause – hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, memory, and mood. Don’t just take our word for it: Read the rave reviews. 

Joylux vFit Gold

If you’re plagued by vaginal dryness and painful sex, this device is a worthy investment. UV-free red light stimulates tissue, sonic vibrations stimulate muscles, and gentle heat encourages blood flow (causing natural lubrication). It’s like a perfect storm to end down-there pain.

Hazel High & Dry Brief

We think it’s super rude of bladder leaks to interrupt a good laugh. So we made a sleek (but uber-strong), disposable brief that looks and feels like real underwear, complete with a control top. So you can giggle more and stress less.

Mojo Hot Flash Serum

As if being drenched in sweat isn’t brutal enough, hot flashes can wreak havoc on your skin, leaving it red and super uncomfortable. This smart serum instantly calms skin and reduces redness, especially when used on the reg.
