Do I need to use a pad, or sanitary napkin?
A pad is used to absorb blood and leakage during menstruation, or periods. Typically, you’ll need to change a pad every few hours. However, women have varying flows, so you may need to change more or less frequently depending on your unique needs.
What kind of pad do I need?
Pads can be purchased in different levels of absorbency, much like incontinence products. You can choose lighter absorbencies for lighter flows, or for days at the end of your cycle. If you have a heavier flow, or just heavier flow days, you’ll likely want a heavier absorbency, so that you don’t need to change as frequently.
When selecting a pad, also consider the shape. Some are thin, for more comfortability, while others are thick, for better absorbency or overnight protection. Some women prefer wings on their pads, along with the adhesive strip on the back, for extra security and leakage protection. Other women prefer the light-weight design of wing-less pads.
I’m experiencing light urinary leaks. Is it okay to use a pad?
It is important that you don’t try to use a menstrual pad for a bladder leak. Menstrual and bladder fluid are very different consistencies, and each type of pad is specially designed to accommodate that type of leakage. If you’re looking for light urinary leakage protection, try one of our bladder pads. They’re specially designed to be ultra-absorbent and are better equipped than menstrual pads to protect against odor.
