FAQs on period panties for heavy flow

How do you know if you have an abundant flow?

Identifying heavy menstrual flow can be done by observing several signs.

  1. The amount of blood lost : a flow is considered heavy when the blood loss exceeds 60 ml per cycle. To get an idea, menstrual panties for heavy flow can hold between 4 to 6 hours of flow.
  2. How often you change your sanitary protection : if you have to change it every 2 hours or less, you probably have a heavy flow.
  3. If your period lasts more than 7 days , this may also be an indicator of heavy flow.

How do you know if your period panties are full?

There are several signs that may indicate that your period panties are full. First, you might feel more wet . However, it should be noted that some models of menstrual panties are designed to retain moisture, so this sign is not always reliable.

Another indicator could be slight discomfort or a feeling of heaviness. However, every woman is different and these sensations may vary.

Finally, a fairly reliable sign is the presence of stains on your underwear or clothing . If you notice stains, it's probably because your period panties are full and it's time to change them.

It is important to clarify that these signs are indicative and can vary depending on each woman and her menstrual flow. With time and experience, you will learn to know your body and anticipate the moment to change your menstrual panties or start with menstrual panties for heavy flow, especially at the start of your period.

Why are my period panties leaking?

Leaks can occur for several reasons.

  1. First, the absorbency of the panties may be exceeded . If your flow is very heavy and you wear your period panties for longer than their absorption capacity, leaks may occur.
  2. Second, the size or fit of the panties may be inadequate . Panties that are too big or too small may not adhere to your body properly and cause leaks.
  3. Finally, your flow may be heavier than you expected , requiring more absorbent panties or more frequent changes.

If in doubt between heavy flow or very heavy flow, we can only advise you to go for a model of panties for very heavy flow.
