Situation: You have your period. You leave your house every morning fresh out of the shower and feeling great, but that freshness can be difficult to maintain, especially when the humidity strikes and it’s a heavy flow day. For you and nearlytwo billion other people every month, menstrual hygiene can pose a challenge that leaves you feeling frankly not your best1
There are a few hard and fast rules when it comes to menstrual health. One which you have hopefully heard of if you use tampons is that you cannot wear a tampon for more than eight hours2. This is to minimize the chances of developing toxic shock syndrome (TSS)3
Likewise, menstrual pads should be changed every four to eight hours as well. Menstrual cups should be emptied, washed and reinserted at least twice a day4. Period underwear can be worn all day, depending on your flow and the type of underwear.
Now that the basics are covered, let’s talk about optimizing your feminine hygiene during your period. Our periods can be flustering, with frequent pad or tampon changes on the go, often leaving us feeling less fresh than usual. If you’re looking for a quick freshness fix to feel confident throughout the day, why not consider Cottonelle® Flushable Wipes?
