Which Period Protection is Right for You?
Some women know, from their first period to their last, exactly which type of feminine hygiene product will work best for them.
That’s great and all – but what about the rest of us?
Luckily, we’ve evaluated the pros and cons of using both tampons and pads.
Not sure which is right for you? Let’s find out.
- Small and Mighty
If women are warriors, tampons are our lethal weapons.
Their small size means that they won’t take up too much room in your purse, and are much easier to hide.
If you value discretion, tampons might be the perfect option for you.
Unlike pads, tampons can be removed and changed quickly, efficiently and (most importantly) discreetly.
They don’t make any noise while being changed. In fact, they’re so discreet that, if you’ve found the perfect fit, you might even forget that you’re wearing one.
This makes exercising whilst on your period much easier- and, as we’ve discussed before, exercise helps reduce PMS symptoms such as cramps.
Sounds like a win-win to us.
Occasionally, the changing of tampons can cause some women to experience discomfort or even slight pain.
Thankfully, this can be prevented through practice.
But pads don’t have this potential side effect, so they can offer you peace of mind, and for this reason, many women prefer pads over tampons.
- Beauty Sleep
Finding the right pad for you is not only easier than finding the right tampon for you, but, if you’ve read our previous blog posts, you’ll know that pads don’t have to be changed quite as regularly as tampons.
This means that you can indulge in a full night’s rest without having to get up in the middle of the night to change your protection.
Sounds pretty tempting, doesn’t it?
So, which type of period protection is right for you?
Well, that’s for you to decide. And you don’t necessarily have to.
The beauty is that most women actually use a combination of the two, depending on how they feel on that particular day.
So, if you’re still not sure, remember that your period is special and unique to you. There is no right or wrong solution.
This is why we encourage you to tailor your monthly box to suit your needs.
Now, we want to hear from you. What do you think?
As always, we wish you an incredible period and a fantastic day!
