What Is Feminine Care?

Feminine care can include the hygienic products you choose that help keep you feeling fresh and clean, such as menstrual pads, pantiliners, tampons, and menstrual cups.

How Often Should I Change My Pad?
A pad is meant to absorb blood, vaginal mucus, and any other materials that your body may discharge during periods. Depending on how heavy your menstrual flow is, you may need to change the pad every 4 hours or as needed until your flow stabilizes. During the time in which your flow is the heaviest, you may need to change your pad more frequently, such as every 2 - 3 hours. This will vary depending on each person.
What Is The Purpose of Panty Liners?
Panty liners are thin, absorbent pieces of material that adhere to the inner lining of the underwear. The panty liner acts as a barrier against a variety of vaginal discharge types, including small amounts of menstrual blood.
What Is The Purpose of Tampons?
Tampons are designed to absorb menstrual blood from within the vagina. Tampons are made of absorbent material pressed tightly into a small cylinder shape. Some tampons may have applicators for insertion but can also be utilized manually with your hand.
How To Help With Period Cramps
Menstrual cramps may occur before or during the time of the menstrual cycle. These cramps may be felt in the lower belly or back and may vary from mild to severe. A pain reliever such as ibuprofeno may help with the pain relief. The application of heat may also help such as a almohadilla térmica placed on the lower back or stomach.
Can You Get Your Period Twice in One Month?
During some months, your menstrual cycle may last longer or be shorter than the previous month, or it may start earlier or later than expected. If your cycle is on the shorter end of the spectrum, you may have your period at the beginning and at the end of the same month, which is not typically a reason for concern. It is important to determine if you are experiencing spotting or a normal menstrual cycle as some vaginal bleeding may be caused by a more serious health problem. Consult with your doctor if you are unsure or if you have any additional questions.
What Causes Heavy Periods?
It is common for women to experience heavy flow days and cramps when they have their period. However, if you are experiencing a menstrual cycle with heavy flow for a prolonged length of time, this may be a result of a condition known as Menorrhagia or other underlying health problems. If you notice that you soak through a pad or tampon every hour or so on a regular basis, consult with your doctor.
Why Do I Experience Spotting After My Period?
If you notice that after your period, you still see a few spots, you're not alone. Women may experience spotting between their periods. Make an appointment with your doctor if the spotting concerns you or if you experience spotting with other symptoms such as pain in your lower abdomen, fever, if symptoms get worse, or if you have vaginal bleeding after you've gone through menopause.
What Does “pH-Balanced” Mean?
The pH level of a vagina is important to understand to determine the person's health. pH is the measurement of how acidic or alkaline a substance may be. This scale runs from 0 to 14. A normal pH level may vary depending on the person's stage of life. A moderately acidic vaginal environment relates to protection against unhealthy bacteria and yeast that may multiply too quickly, causing infection. pH balanced feminine care products like boric acid suppositories are designed not to disrupt the vagina’s natural pH balance.
Feminine Care Tips
Here are some helpful feminine care tips:
Eat a healthy diet that includes foods rich in probiotics like yogurt to help you maintain a healthy balance of good bacteria.
Never re-use towels as they may spread bacteria. Desechable feminine wipes are a good alternative.
If you're feeling unwell before your period, try an over-the-counter medication specially formulated to treat the symptoms of PMS.
Change sanitary pads every few hours, and more often if you experience heavy flow.
Wear loose, breathable clothing to help you stay fresh and dry throughout the day.
Always practice safe sex.
When using wipes, be sure to wipe from the front to the back and not the other way around.
Feminine Hygiene Care
Every woman has different needs when it comes to personal care, but there are some basic feminine hygiene care tips that everyone should follow. Always choose products that you feel comfortable with, and make sure you have ample period protection on hand just in case you need it. Avoid washing the vaginal area with fragranced products as they may cause irritation or encourage bacterial growth. Keep the area clean and dry to help you stay fresh throughout the day. If you're ever concerned about your feminine health or hygiene, talk to a trusted medical professional. They can make recommendations and help you determine what might be causing the issues you are experiencing. Shop the selection of feminine hygiene care products at CVS Pharmacy so that you can always feel your best you.
