3 TIPS TO CALCULATE YOUR MENSTRUAL HYGIENE PRODUCTS
FOR YOUR NEXT PERIOD
As women, our periods are a fact of life, and every month we find ourselves needing to stock up on menstrual products. But how do we know how many we need?
Calculating the right amount of pads or period panties can be a daunting task, especially for those who are new to menstruating or new at reusable products.
In this guide, we'll provide you with three tips to help you determine how many menstrual products you'll need for your period.
TIP #1: KNOW YOUR FLOW
The first step to calculating how many menstrual products you'll need is to know your flow. Every woman's period is different, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach. Some women have light periods that last only a few days, while others have heavier periods that can last up to a week or more. Knowing your flow will help you choose the right menstrual product and determine how many you'll need.
TIP #2: PLAN AHEAD
Planning ahead is essential when it comes to menstrual products. You don't want to find yourself caught off guard and without the products you need. If you have a regular menstrual cycle, start tracking it on a calendar or period tracking app. This will help you predict when your period is coming and plan ahead by stocking up on the necessary products.
TIP #3: CONSIDER YOUR LIFESTYLE
Your lifestyle can also play a role in determining how many menstrual products you'll need. If you're an active person who exercises regularly, you may need more products than someone who leads a more sedentary lifestyle. Similarly, if you have a job that requires you to be out of the house for long periods, you'll need to plan accordingly and make sure you have enough products to last.
HOW MANY ECOPRODUCTS WILL I NEED?
It's important to keep in mind that they each pad or panty can provide up to 8 hours of protection, depending on your flow. To determine how many you'll need, consider your average period length and flow intensity.
For example, if your period lasts 5 days and you have a moderate flow, you may need 2-3 reusable pads or panties per day, for a total of 10-15 for the entire period. Remember to wash and dry them properly between uses to ensure optimal hygiene and protection.
