The Six Most Common Mistakes Women Make When Using Sanitary Pads


Sanitary pads are undoubtedly an indispensable part of girls' lives. 

The use of sanitary pads has naturally become an important event, but everyone's usage habits in life are different. How to use them is correct and healthy? 

1. The influence of misuse of sanitary napkins

Because the pelvic cavity, uterus, cervix, vagina, and the external environment are all connected, this structure makes the female reproductive system particularly vulnerable to external pathogens. Especially during menstruation, the resistance of the reproductive organs decreases and is more vulnerable than usual. If substandard sanitary pads are used, infections are particularly likely to occur.

Experts suggest that, try to choose products from sanitary napkin brand manufacturers with guaranteed reputation in large shopping malls, and carefully check the hygiene license number, anti-counterfeiting mark, and shelf life on the outer packaging-but this is only the most basic.

2. Matters needing attention during the use of sanitary napkins

Zhejiang B.I., offering hygienic sanitary pads, will bring professional advice from experts.

(1) Replacement should be more frequent

There are rich nutrients in menstrual blood, which can easily become a "medium" for the proliferation of bacteria. Therefore, sanitary pads must be changed frequently.

  • Two wrong ways:

One is that if you use a sanitary napkin with strong absorption and good protection function, you may think it does not matter if you use the same ultra thin sanitary napkin for a long time; The other is to forget to replace it when the menstrual blood volume is low.

There is a survey: Japanese women change 6 times a day on average during menstruation, while Chinese women change 3 times. For the same Asian race, there should not be much difference in physique. However, due to the high proportion of Chinese women using intrauterine contraceptive rings, the overall menstrual flow should be greater.

(2) Use pharmaceutical sanitary napkins with caution, especially women with allergies

The raw materials of hygienic towels from regular manufacturers have undergone special safety testing and have been used for many years. If an allergy occurs, it is usually due to our physical problems, which is the same reason that someone who eats shrimp or crab will be allergic.

The only way to prevent allergies is to avoid allergens, so once you feel itchy or uncomfortable, stop using this sanitary napkin immediately. It is best to find out the ingredients that cause allergies (the most common is the fragrance in sanitary pads) and do not use sanitary pads with the same ingredients.

Experts suggest: "People with sensitive skin should use less dry mesh surface and more cotton mesh surface. Dry mesh surface absorbs quickly, but cotton mesh surface is softer and more comfortable and less harmful to the skin." In addition, it is more likely to occur in summer. Allergies, this is due to the accumulation of moisture in the local area, so we must pay more attention to frequent replacement. "

(3) Sanitary pads are best changed every two hours

Ms. Zhang has always used eco-friendly tampons, mainly because she has a cleanliness addict and can't stand the peculiar smell of menstrual blood on the sanitary pads. In fact, there is no peculiar smell when the menstrual blood just flows out, but when it comes into contact with the air, an oxidation reaction occurs. Several chemicals are mixed together to produce the smell.

The way to overcome it is of course to choose products with good air permeability and replace them frequently. The doctor also recommends that it is not advisable to eat high-fat and high-calorie foods during menstruation. A light diet will refresh the body.

(4) Keep a distance from the sanitary pad

In the two days before and after menstruation, natural feminine pads are a convenient, practical and clean choice for travel, business trips and other inconvenient bathing situations. But we think: "Sanitary pads should not be used at all times."

(5) Disinfection and bleaching

Period towels are not completely sterile, because it is difficult and unnecessary: menstrual blood itself contains many microorganisms. According to a study, each gram of menstrual blood contains 108-9 microorganisms. There is no harm. Therefore, many brands of sanitary pads are not specifically disinfected, as long as they meet the national requirements: no pathogenic bacteria, and the number of microorganisms is within a certain range, it will not harm our health.

It should be noted that most of the disinfection is through a chemical gas-ethylene oxide, which must be stored for a period of time, otherwise, the residual ethylene oxide may cause harm to the human body.

(6) Environmental protection issues of sanitary pads

A woman needs about 15,000 sanitary pads in her lifetime. It seems that environmental protection issues must be carefully considered. Environmental protection experts tell us: Waste sanitary pads are "non-recyclable" garbage. If you are in a city where garbage can be recycled and non-recyclable, then put it in the non-recyclable category. You must never throw sanitary pads into the sewers. This is an important reason for the blockage of urban sewers.

Zhejiang B.I. , as one of the most professional wholesale baby diapers manufacturers in China, has developed biodegradable sanitary pads to help the environmental protection of global personal care products!
