How to deal with period leaks: tips and tricks

Period leaks can be a common occurrence, and they can be embarrassing and inconvenient. While it can be frustrating to deal with leaks, there are ways to manage them and prevent them from happening.

Here are some tips and tricks to help you deal with period leaks.

Wear the right size and type of product

It's important to wear the right size and type of product for your flow. If your pad or tampon is too small, it won't be able to absorb enough blood and may leak. On the other hand, if it's too large, it may not fit properly and also lead to leaks. Experiment with different sizes and types of products until you find what works best for you.

Change your product regularly

Changing your pad or tampon regularly can help prevent leaks. It's recommended to change your product every 4-6 hours or as needed. If you have a heavier flow, you may need to change your product more frequently.

Double up

If you're worried about leaks, consider doubling up with a pad and tampon or wearing period underwear. This can provide extra protection and give you peace of mind.

Be prepared

Keep extra pads, tampons, or period underwear in your bag or locker so you can change as needed. It's also a good idea to wear dark-colored pants or shorts to help hide any leaks.

Practice good hygiene

If you do experience a leak, it's important to clean up as soon as possible to prevent odor and infection. Use a wet wipe or toilet paper to clean the affected area, and change your pad or tampon immediately.

Use a menstrual cup

Menstrual cups are a great alternative to pads and tampons and can be more leak-proof. They are inserted into the vagina and collect blood, and can be emptied and cleaned as needed.

Remember, period leaks are a normal part of menstruation, and it's nothing to be ashamed of. By being prepared and using the right products, you can manage leaks and continue with your daily activities.

You are Be-YOU-tiful. Make sure you take time to show yourself some love.
