Period Underwear

Just as all decisions about what kinds or colors of underwear you like are personal ones, so are ones about what kind of period underwear you should wear during your period.

 

Some girls like to wear their oldest, least favorite pair when they're having their period, just in case something happens and they get a stain on them. Others prefer to wear their newest, most favorite pair during that time of month because they say it helps make them feel fresh and good.

 

If you're a tampon wearer and you're concerned about stains on your underwear on heavy days of your period, you may want to consider wearing a pantiliner to help keep you feeling fresh.

 

If your period catches you by surprise and you get a stain on your period underwear, remember that COLD water and salt work best for getting out blood stains. Then wash with your favorite detergent.

 

Whatever your choice is, make sure that your period underwear is the right size, especially if you're wearing a pad. Your underwear is what helps keep your pad in the right place, and if your underwear is too big or old and no longer has elasticity, there's a bigger chance that it won't. Use this guide to learn how to properly use a pad and avoid leaks:

Always start by washing your hands. If the pad or pantiliner you’re using is in a wrapper, remove it and save it for disposing the used pad later.
Now, remove the backing of the pad (sometimes the wrapper doubles as the backing).
Center the sticky side of the pad in the bottom panel of your panties (the area that goes between your legs). Be sure not to put it too far to the back or front. If your pad or pantiliner has wings, remove the backing (if necessary) and wrap them around the underside of your panties.
To dispose of a used pad or pantiliner, pull it off your panties and roll it up like a sleeping bag in tissue or the wrapper from a fresh pad. Then toss it in the trash. But remember, never flush a pad or pantiliner down the toilet.

I'll wear a liner at night, when I know it's coming, right? And then, just when it's been long enough that I think, 'hey, I'm skipping this month', I go one night without a liner, and boom. There it is. You think I'd learn, huh? But I'm experienced at stain removal this way! :)

I'm just always super careful when I have my period not to stain. For some reason, my period always starts at like 4:00 in the morning. Ughhhh. So a few days before my period is supposed to come, I start wearing an overnight pad in case I get it while I'm sleeping... So, yay! No more stains! P.S. always get your stained undies in cold water as soon as possible. It will help the stain come out quicker.

To Stormyjumps! The key to inserting and removing tampons is to "relax." Don't let anyone rush you, even if there's a waiting line for the stalls. Practice at home and don't be tense. Think "Happy Thoughts." Tampons with plastic applicators are easier to insert than cardboard applicators. Use the right absorbency for each day of your period (lite, regular, super). A tip my Mom told me about removing tampons is, "Gently tug on the string, if the tampon resists, let it in. If it's loose, then it's time to change it." A tampon can be worn 4 to 8 hours unless your flow is heavy or you start to smell an odor. If you have any more questions, just ask.

@destine02 the same things happen for me with a pantyliner! I'll just ask my mom to buy me ones with wings when she needs to get more for me :)

I always have problems putting the pad on my underwear cause i don't know if i have to put it higher on the underwear part or lower. And when i wear it, it curls and then gets on my underwear.

I think when you have your period, vaginal sweat, and discharge, you should wear thick machine washable underwear that is a dark color. You should make sure it's comfy and cute, to help you feel good and sure about not have stains show though your shorts.

I started my period yesterday and ruined two pairs of underwear! One pair was even new. I'll wear older underwear during and before my period now.
