Pads: How often should I change them?
You’ll find that you need to change your pad around every three hours. Go to the bathroom regularly to make sure no blood has leaked onto your panties. Most women prefer sanitary pads with protective tabs that you can simply fold over and stick to the underside of your panties using the adhesive strips.
Pads with protective tabs are especially handy because they keep the blood from overflowing and staining your panties. You’ll see how great they are, especially if you’re active or into sports. If you usually have heavy periods, keep a few pads, tampons, and panty liners on hand in your purse and locker - just in case. Pads come in practical individual pouches that are highly discreet and easy to slip into a pocket before you head to the bathroom.
