Pakistani Girls Are Helping Each Other Through PMS And Period Pain With A Boyfriend Box

By Sajeer Shaikh | 13 Apr, 2017

How many times have we, with our PMS addled minds and period pain stricken bodies, taken to a sappy movie and seen guys show up to their girlfriends’ houses with roses, chocolates and other romantic gifts?

And how many times have we low key wished that we had someone to do that for us?

Well, a Karachi based company is helping women support their friends through PMS with a “boyfriend box”.

Minus the presence of an actual physical boyfriend, that is. That’s still all on you.

Boxy & Co. is a subscription box service that’s encouraging Pakistani girls to help each other out during period pain and PMS. They provide you with a PMS subscription box called Boyfriend In A Box.

Pakistani girls have taken to “Boyfriend In A Box” to make the process of menstruation some what bearable for their friends. 

Since we understand each other’s literal pain, it’s great to have a service like Boxy & Co. spring up and allow us to indulge ourselves during our menstrual cycles. Many have voiced this appreciation as well, such as this happy customer..

If you’re looking to pamper yourself when you’re on your period or know someone who should be pampered to ease their PMS and period pain, give Boyfriend In A Box a go. Maybe it’s time we stop expecting our Ryan Goslings to show up with flowers and be the Leslie Knopes we’re meant to be and help each other out.
