Period: Feminine hygiene protection

Various options exist, but most women use tampons or pads. It is recommended to change your feminine hygiene protection according to your activity level, blood flow and comfort with your body.

Whichever option you choose, you should change your feminine hygiene products regularly throughout the day. Leaving a product in place for too long creates an opportunity for bacteria to proliferate, generating feminine odour, and possibly causing infection.

Consult our TAMPONS & PADS section to learn more about feminine hygiene protection and how to use them!
