Manual for the correct use of sanitary napkins

# Sanitary Napkins

Introduction: It is said that a woman needs about 15,000 sanitary napkins in her lifetime! Sanitary napkins are essential menstrual products for women. Its use is intimate, sensitive and fragile, and therefore requires a particularly high quality of hygiene. If sanitary napkins are not used properly, they not only restrict activities, but also feel unbearably hot and humid, and easily breed germs and odors that can lead to gynecological diseases!


Q1:How often should change sanitary napkin?

Data survey reports that Japanese women change on average 6 times a day during their physiological period, while Chinese women change on average 3 times a day. Nowadays, there are many tampons with high absorption capacity advertised in the market, and many women mistakenly believe that such tampons can be used for a long time, especially when there is little menstrual blood, and only use one or two pieces a day, which is a serious misconception.

The experiment concluded that the general sanitary napkin has turned into a culture medium for germs after 2 hours of use. The total number of surface germs can reach 107/cm2. During the physiological period, women's own immunity is reduced and they are more vulnerable to external germs. In addition, summer moisture tends to gather locally and cause allergies, so it is recommended to replace every 2 hours, regardless of the number.


Q2:Do sanitary napkins have a shelf life?

Sanitary napkins are not completely sterile because it is difficult to do so and it is not necessary. Menstrual blood itself contains a large number of microorganisms, according to a study: 108 to 9 microorganisms per gram of menstrual blood, but it is usually harmless to humans. Therefore, many brands of sanitary napkins are specifically sterilized and will not harm everyone's health as long as they meet the requirements of national standards and do not contain pathogenic bacteria and the number of microorganisms is within a certain range.

Therefore, sanitary napkins are easy to buy and use. When using sanitary napkins, you must pay attention to the expiration date and should not buy too many at once, not to mention long-term stockpiling. Unwrapped and unused ones can be put in a good quality cloth bag. If you need to carry them outdoors, you should also store them especially and not mix them with the cosmetics in the bag!


Q3:Are there any hidden dangers of scented sanitary napkins?

Many businesses in the market have introduced scented sanitary napkins such as rose scented, jasmine scented, lemon scented, mint scented, and other medicinal sanitary napkins such as motherwort. Most of these sanitary napkins add different types of drugs, fragrances or additives, and some pure herbal bio-medicinal solution with bitter ginseng, snake bed, Chuan Huang Lian and ice chips sprayed on the sanitary napkin. Medicinal sanitary napkins add different ingredients. Generally speaking, they act as an antiseptic and antipruritic. Also, the refreshing nature of medicinal sanitary napkins can bring comfort to women in hot or humid weather.


However, medicinal sanitary napkins have their own groups of applicability and are not suitable for everyone. Medicinal sanitary napkins do benefit menstrual care for women with inflammation because they can cleanse a woman's pubic area to a certain extent and assist in the treatment of gynecological diseases. However, because people have different body types, they are not recommended for women who have a cold body and are afraid of cold.



  • Try to wear more comfortable clothes such as sweatpants. These clothes will be more breathable and sanitary napkins are less likely to be deformed and fit better.
  • Clean your pubic area: Don't abuse private part cleansers because of dirty menstrual blood. As long as your private parts are healthy, wash them with lukewarm water, 1~2 times a day, not too often.
  • Change your underwear daily and dry it in time.
