Menstrual Pads

In order not to stain our underwear and clothing, it is necessary to control menstruation bleeding by containing it with hygiene and intimate protection products such as pads. Pads are a disposable strip (except reusable cloth ones) of cellulose or similar material that is placed on the outside of the vagina, in the panties, and serves to absorb the woman's secretions and menstrual flow during her period. It is a very non-invasive protection method (compared to tampons or menstrual cups) and much easier to use at a glance. The different sizes of pads available are intended to cover different types of bleeding, as they have different menstrual flow absorption capacities.

They are absorbent products that adhere directly to the panties thanks to adhesive bands on the bottom. In some cases, to prevent the pad from moving, they have side reinforcements called wings. They collect menstrual flow when it has already left the uterus through the vagina. In general, they are very comfortable, which makes them very suitable for the first periods, helping girls to learn directly the amount of menstrual flow they expel daily.

With the advancement of technologies and research in gynecological matters, pads have been perfected by introducing new thinner materials with greater absorption, also ensuring that they retain the characteristic smell of the period much better. We must be careful and know how to choose appropriate pads for our health, in order not to alter the pH or vaginal flora of our intimate area, since there are pads with perfumes and dyes, which can be harmful in the long term.

Compresses With Wings or Without Wings?

The Pads with Wings have two small tabs on each side and are used to hold the pad in our underwear, achieving better support and lateral protection . Wingless Pads are those that do not have wings and are adjusted with a soft glue that the pad has on its bottom. Neither is better than the other, it is simply a personal decision based on what is most comfortable for you and best suits your needs .

Using Compresses to control menstruation is very simple and comfortable . Simply remove the plastic that protects the adhesive, place the company on top of the panties, and change it when necessary.

If your vaginal discharge is abundant and copious, it is advisable that you change the pad more often to prevent leaks. Most pads are disposable, but it is important to never throw them down the toilet, always using the trash or special containers that are usually found in most sinks.

Are Pads or Tampons Better?

Both Tampons and Pads provide comfort and protection for your period days, so you can choose one or the other depending on the circumstance, the day or, in fact, wear both. Pads are external protection products, which collect menstrual flow when it has already left the body, while tampons collect it inside. Therefore, when playing sports, it may be more comfortable to use tampons. On the other hand, at night, pads are more comfortable and appropriate since it is never advisable to use tampons for more than 8 hours in a row. Therefore, it is best that you take a look at our Farma2Go catalog and choose for yourself what best suits your needs.

It has much less absorption power than Compresses, so both products should not be used interchangeably.
