Disposable products for your menstruation
Many women still use classic disposable products to protect themselves during menstruation. You can choose between tampons and pads. The tampon is inserted into the vagina and absorbs the menstrual blood before it can escape. A sanitary pad, on the other hand, is placed in your panties and absorbs the menstrual blood only after it has left your vagina. To prevent them from slipping so easily, pads have a sticky underside that gives them extra grip in your panties.
A big problem associated with the use of disposable menstrual products is the waste they generate. Although you may think that a few tampons or pads are not worth mentioning, over the course of your life you will accumulate a significant amount of waste that could easily be avoided without sacrificing safety or comfort.
Reusable products for your menstruation
In addition to classic disposable products, there are now also reusable menstrual products, such as menstrual cups and period underwear, which you can use instead of a pad or tampon. The menstrual cup is basically the reusable alternative to the classic tampon. Like the tampon, it is inserted into the vagina and catches the menstrual blood before it comes out.

Period pants, on the other hand, is the environmentally friendly alternative to disposable pads. The menstrual panties are equipped with a special multi-layer membrane system that absorbs the escaping menstrual blood and stores it in a leak-proof way. In this case, the panty liner is practically an integral part of your underwear, which you can of course wash in the washing machine after use.
If you choose period knickers instead of tampons, you will have several advantages. First of all, you save the environment by avoiding unnecessary waste, because you can simply wash your mestrual underwear after use and put it back on again.
Apart from that, you don't have to insert anything into your vagina when using period underwear, so your vaginal flora is not affected. In addition, period underwear is available in different thicknesses. Depending on the model, your period underwear can hold the same amount of fluid as up to six normal tampons. This means that you are usually well protected even on the heavier days of your menstruation.
Period underwear or pads?
At least in terms of their basic function, period underwear and pads are very similar. Both hygiene products protect you by absorbing the menstrual blood after it leaves your vagina and storing it in a leak-proof way. Period panties-from-Weekiss
Apart from that, however, they are quite different when you take a closer look. First of all, unlike menstrual underwear, sanitary towels are usually disposable and you have to dispose of them after use. So they are not the best choice for the environment.
In addition, despite their sticky underside, sanitary pads can slip in everyday use. This is especially true if you are physically active. Period briefs, on the other hand, stay reliably in place and do not slip even during an active day. This means you can feel safe at all times, even when you're out and about, and you don't have to worry about the correct fit of your menstrual product.
Period underwear or menstrual cup?
Unlike tampons and pads, menstrual cups are at least reusable, so you don't pollute the environment unnecessarily by using them. However, unlike period panties, menstrual cups have to be inserted into the vagina, which makes them a little more difficult to use.
In addition, finding the right size can sometimes be a challenge. In order for it to work properly, it is essential that the menstrual cup of your choice is exactly the right size for your vagina. When it comes to handling and comfort, period knickers definitely has an advantage over a menstrual cup when tested in everyday life.
In terms of handling, period underwear is basically no different from conventional panties. All you have to do is slip into your period panties and you are protected thanks to the special membrane system.
Depending on the absorbency of the panties and the intensity of your periods, your mestrual underwear will keep you dry and comfortable for several hours. When the period panties are fully absorbed, you can simply wash them in the washing machine and wear them again after drying.
Compared to other menstrual products such as tampons or menstrual cups, period underwear is particularly easy to use, making it ideal for younger women who have just had their period and are still getting used to the changes in everyday life that come with their cycle.
