Go Rash-Free with Gal Pal Sanitary Pads

Whether your periods have just started, you’ve been having them for a good few years, there is a high probability you might not be aware about the importance of menstrual hygiene. But before that, a quick recap on what exactly are periods? Period is a monthly cycle where a woman’s body releases tissue, which it no longer requires. This tissue is present in the uterus and it is where the baby develops. Each month, the uterus lining becomes thick to prepare for pregnancy, but when it doesn’t happen, the lining breaks down and is released in the form of blood. This cycle keeps recurring every month and is termed as period, aka menstruation.

Did you know that 8 out of 10 women are troubled by rashes during periods? While there can be a few contributing causes of period rashes, the major one still stands to be poor-quality sanitary napkins. Apparently, it turns out that not many of them pay attention to hygiene. Here, we try to highlight the role played by good quality sanitary pads in improving personal hygiene.

Why Are Sanitary Pads Important?

Sanitary napkins help women manage their monthly periods effectively. From improving hygiene to convenience, there are numerous reasons why you should use a good-quality pad:

1. No leaks: Sanitary napkins are specially designed with superior technology to help prevent leaks. You can go out effortlessly wearing them without worrying about leaks.
2. Hygienic: Unlike traditional clothes, period pads are way more hygienic. You don’t have to clean or dry them out after use.
3. Travel-friendly: Sanitary pads are super portable and accessible. You can carry them on the go with ease.
4. Prevent infections: Traditional methods of period protection can make you prone to numerous vaginal infections. Sanitary napkins, on the other hand, are hygienic and offer adequate protection.

How Are Pads Used?

Using a sanitary pad is so easy. 

  • Open the external cover of pads, some pads for women don’t come with any external cover.
  • Remove the butter paper from the back of the pad, now place it on the panty crotch. Not too high, not too low. Your intimate area should be covered entirely and the pad should reach the mid-half of the panty’s rear part.
  • Now remove the butter paper from the side wings and stick them to the back of your panty.
  • Press the pad lightly to ensure it’s perfectly stuck with the panty. 
  • Here you go, wear your panties.

Once you’ve used it, simply pull it from the panty and dispose using a wrapper.

How to Choose a Sanitary Napkin?

They come in various variants, so it might be a little difficult to understand which one will suit you. Whether you should do something thick or thin, with or without wings, regular or large size! Well, here are a few things to keep in mind.

1. Thickness: If a sanitary pad is thick, it usually means its quality is not up to the mark. Not only do they lack in absorbency, but they also show underneath fitted clothes. The thinner ones are usually more comfortable and have better absorbency.
2. Wings: We all have had those instances where the sanitary pad rolls up. If you want to get rid of this problem and experience happy periods, choose one with wings.
3. Size: Different days have different flow levels, which is why pads come in various sizes. If you’re bleeding heavily, you should opt for those made for heavy flow. On other days, you can use a regular one that is usually a bit smaller in size.

How to Deal With Period Rashes?

Women need to use good quality sanitary pads to reduce menstruation-related problems. Compromising on their quality can land you in trouble, like dampness and chafing due to poor material and absorbency levels. They can cause itching around the thighs and groin due to excessive heat and dampness. This is why it is very important to ensure that your pad is made using super soft & breathable material, just like the Gal Pal sanitary pads recommended by Clovia. Gal Pal sanitary pads are thin and made with high-absorbent material, which keeps the damp feeling away. The extra long pads with a wider back make your periods tension-free. Also make sure that you are wearing comfortable panties made of breathable fabric during your periods.

5. Ultra-thin: Our sanitary napkins are super thin so that you don’t feel stuffy.

When To Change A Sanitary Pad?

Doctors suggest you should not wear your pad longer than 12 hours. But it depends on the flow, on the 1st & 2nd day of the menstrual cycle the flow is more and you might require to change the pad within 6-8 hours only.

In case of low flow, don’t wait to get your pad entirely covered with the blood, change it before 12 hours. You can choose small thin pads for light flow days instead of extra large ones.

Different Pads for Different Days of Periods

Since on different days of periods the flow level is different hence the same pad can’t be used. The ideal way to use sanitary pads is having regular pads, Xl pads and overnight pads. Regular pads should be used on the 1st day of periods and towards the end of periods when flow is low. On the heavy flow days wear extra large pads with a wider back. For nights use Clovia Gal Pal overnight pads. On 5th & 6th day of periods use Gal Pal panty liners to avoid spotting

How to Dispose of a Used Sanitary Napkin Properly?

After using sanitary napkins it is mandatory to dispose of them properly. Do not throw them in the toilet; this would clog the toilet and create chaos. A used sanitary napkin should be wrapped in newspaper or toilet paper and must be discarded in a dustbin.
