The advertisement industry has us believe that using the sanitary pad of a particular company can turn our menstruation days into a mini picnic. Suddenly women start running along the beaches with all their worries vanished.
Unfortunately, that is not how life and especially periods work. Even if women all over the world have learnt to cope up with this natural phenomenon, periods are still not like your regular days.
There is nausea, vomiting, headaches, pain, and the emotional aspect of PMS (perhaps the worst!)
Since these days are different, you need to treat them differently as well in order to make life a little bit more comfortable.
1. Using Pads For Too Long
This is a necessary hygienic practice to follow for avoiding infections. Leaving on a sanitary pad for too long can cause toxic shock syndrome, which can be severe enough to cause a number of complications down there. Therefore, you should stop using the same pad either for the fear of embarrassment or out of sheer laziness.
