We all know that menstrual pads are for periods – but what about the panty liner? We chatted with some natracare users about how they use panty liners, how often they wear them for, and for what purpose!
The “everyday” liner
Many women we spoke to like to wear a liner everyday. Why? Well, it’s common and natural to have some discharge during the day. It can make things a damp and uncomfortable, especially when working out. A panty liner is a great way to maintain a ‘fresh and clean’ feeling throughout the day. It’s good to change a liner every 3-5 hours.
Stress incontinence (SUI) is a type of light urinary incontinence. A weak or damaged urethra can leak when strained – for example when sneezing, jumping or laughing. It’s extremely common, especially after giving birth, so it’s nothing to feel embarrassed about. Many have told us that they use panty liners as protection for little leakages. When you need that much more protection there is a Dry & Light pad for light urinary incontinence.
Lighter period days
Sarah from Leeds told us how she likes to use a panty liner rather than a pad for the light days at the end of her period. A panty liner can give you a bit of protection without using a full sized menstrual pad! Many find a liner provides more than adequate protection. We like this idea, as it saves you wearing and using more than needed.
With a tampon or menstrual cup
Tampons and mooncups are great, but occasionally there is a risk of leaking. For some a panty liner acts as reassurance as ‘just-in-case’ protection during their period.
We’ve all got different habits, and that’s why we have a variety of panty liners for every need. Long, short, wrapped, curved we have them all and they are always organic and natural and biodegradable!
Finally, we’d like to thank all the ladies who spoke to us! Do you use panty liners everyday or at a particular time? Have you found any other uses not mentioned above? Let us know on Instagram or Facebook! Our everyday body functions are so important, it’s good to know each others ‘normal’ whether it’s discharge, incontinence or periods. Let’s keep the conversation going and ensure our bodies are better understood. Talking about intimate experiences is insightful, empowering and helps share information.
