Applying sanitary pads is even a topic worth discussing? Most of us just shy away and ignore the talks about our reproductive health, genitals, and sex and keep learning things from all the wrong sources.
Not everything in our life is worth discussing. But there are certain things that we don’t feel comfortable in opening up with others. Especially when it comes to our genitalia and reproductive parts, this subject becomes even more of a taboo. But wait- we have to talk about it, or else we might never know what we are doing wrong throughout our life.
One of such ‘taboo’ subjects is the menstrual cycle. Periods are a normal and natural part of any girl’s life. And still, people refrain from talking about it without having a cringe on their face. Every young girl experiences her first period sometime during her pubescent years, typically between the ages of 11-13.
Periods are nothing to be ashamed of and learning as much as you can ahead of time helps.
Like, without discussing it, we’d never know how the sanitary pads are supposed to be used. So, let’s take one for learning today.
#1. Varieties of Sanitary Pads
There are so many types of sanitary napkins available in the market. Some are standard front-to-back pads while others have wings that wrap around your undies to stay securely in place and avoid side leakage. They all come with adhesive backing.
