Tampons & Pads
Regular menstruation can indicate good reproductive health, as your hormones are well-balanced and your body is functioning as intended. However, managing it can be difficult at times. Some may experience mood swings, intense food cravings, menstrual cramps, and other uncomfortable side effects. Not only that, but you need to keep your garments leak-free throughout those 3-to 7 days of bleeding. Though tampons and pads are readily available in groceries, they’re usually unsustainable and made with questionable materials.
Good news, though, as more companies are now offering high-quality tampons and pads. Lauvette offers tampons that are eco-friendly and more gentle on the skin. There are also reusable pads in the shop, which means you’ll save the planet and your wallet.
- What is a tampon?A tampon is a menstrual hygiene product that absorbs period blood. It’s inserted in the vagina, efficiently preventing menstrual leaks. It’s usually made with soft cotton and comes with an applicator.
- What is a pad?A menstrual pad is a period product designed to stick in an underwear’s crotch area. It collects period blood, preventing leaks on shorts, skirts, dresses, and other garments.
- How often should I change my tampon?This actually depends on how heavy your menstrual flow is. But as a standard, it’s recommended to change your tampons for 4-8 hours. Always wash your hands before removing or inserting a tampon to avoid infections.
