Forget about accidents with this step-by-step guide to how to use menstrual pads.
Avoid unpleasant surprises, here we remind you step-by-step how to use menstrual pads.
STEP 1. CHOOSE THE RIGHT MENSTRUAL PAD
All menstrual cycles are different and there is a menstrual pad for each one. Now that this is clear, the first thing to do is to choose the one that best suits your cycle. Remember that there are pads with or without wings, slim or extra-thin, for a regular flow or a heavy one, for day or night time use. Take your time to choose the right one.
STEP 2. UNFOLD IT AND REMOVE THE ADHESIVE STRIPS
Once you have chosen your ideal menstrual pad, remove it from the packet, unfold it and remove the plastic stickers that cover the adhesive part of the wings (if you chose one with wings). Also peel off the adhesive protector in the center of the pad; you can't imagine how many women forget to remove it and how important it is to do so in order for the pad to fit properly in your underwear.
STEP 3. PLACE IT IN YOUR UNDERWEAR
It's time to place it in your panties. Try to place it in the center of your panties. A good way to guide you is to take as a reference the fabric reinforcement that all underwear has in the area that covers the vagina. Be sure to stick the wings around your underwear, this will prevent the pad from moving. A good way to make sure is to pull your underwear up and see if it covers your entire pubis region.
STEP 4. CHECK YOUR PAD
Once you have put on the menstrual pad, pull up your underwear and check that it is well positioned; to do this, feel that part of your behind with both hands, so you can see if it is centered.
STEP 5. CHANGE YOUR SANITARY PAD WHENEVER REQUIRED
Depending on the flow of your menstruation, you must be attentive about changing your menstrual pad and avoid staining your clothes. Always take extra pads in your bag, in case you need to change them frequently. We recommend changing the pad every 4 hours to avoid mishaps.
