4 Good tips to help prevent menstrual overflow

1. Choose pads of the right length and thickness

If you have a heavy menstrual flow, it is better to use a full-length, super-absorbent sanitary pad.

● You should choose sanitary pads with wings to ensure a tight grip on your vagina when sitting, lying down or walking.

● If the flow is normal/low, you should use regular pads and change it every 3 to 4 hours. If your period is heavy, you should change it more regularly. This helps prevent leakage as well as reduces the risk of infections.

For those who are worried about their health, their comfort and the planet, this is the best way to be safe during the period. These menstrual panties have been regarded as the best protection to wear during your period.

Menstrual underwear is a special type of underwear with a smart 4-layer design to help protect your lady part and prevent menstrual overflow.

● The second is an ultra-breathable layer that helps prevent odor and keeps you dry.

● The third layer is the waterproof layer.

3. The menstrual cup experience

Most menstrual cups are made of medical-grade silicone. The cup shape is designed to fit into the vagina and safely hold the flow of menstruation inside. In particular, the menstrual cup can be used for 6-12 hours in the body and is suitable for those with a heavy flow.
