The Ultimate Guide to Your Period Products
Periods can be unpleasant and could affect your daily life. But you can minimise this with the right period product.
There are many factors you can consider while choosing the best products, but comfort and hygiene are the two main benefits to look for when choosing.
Here’s an ultimate guide to help you find your perfect period product.
Pads are the most commonly used period product. Many young girls and women use them. They are designed to stick to the inside of your underwear and absorb menstrual blood.
Their design has evolved significantly over the years, becoming considerably more comfortable and absorbent, with different sizes available to suit different flows.
Wearing a sanitary pad may limit certain activities, such as swimming or intense workouts. You often need to adjust them because they move around and slip out of place, increasing the possibility of spillage.
Many women have switched from traditional period products to period panties.
They look like regular underwear and are made of multiple layers of microfiber polyester that lock moisture away from the skin, prevent blood from leaking onto your clothes, and provide overall comfort.

Tampons can be uncomfortable as you will need to insert them into the vaginal canal. Like pads, tampons are also made of highly absorbent materials. They absorb your menstrual flow from the inside of your vagina.
Tampons are popular among users because they are more discrete in terms of packaging, convenience in your pocket or bag, and use, i.e., not visible on the underwear. Tampon's material can dry out your vaginal walls if left in for a long time. As a result, you may find it difficult to remove them at times.
Menstrual cups are made of medical-grade silicone, so unlike tampons, they do not dry out the vagina's natural moisture. To insert the cup, fold it in half like a taco and pinch it between your fingers while inserting it inside, so it rests on the vaginal wall and collects blood. Pinch the cup to remove it, then pour the blood into the toilet and clean it with hot water before reinserting it.
Emptying a menstrual cup can be a mess. It does take some getting used to, and you'll need to figure out how to insert, remove, and clean it properly.
There is a period product for everyone, regardless of age or comfort level. It might take some time to find the perfect period product. Always ensure the product is comfortable for you and hygienic.
