FAQs About Feminine Care

Both pads and tampons have benefits and drawbacks. Since you wear a pad on your underwear, it's easier to see when you need to change it, and they are easy to change. Pads provide leak-free protection, even on heavy period days. There are many different styles, so you can find one that fits your needs whether you're dressed for work, to go to the gym, or dressed for a night out. Pads also come in many different absorbencies, and some even have "wings" that wrap around your underwear for extra protection.\n
Many women prefer tampons because they are worn inside the body, and once inserted, they are undetectable. You can also comfortably wear a tampon while swimming and playing sports. However, you have no way of knowing when it's time to change a tampon, and it can leak if you wait too long. It is also important to remember to change a tampon every eight hours or less.

It's important to use gentle products for feminine hygiene. For example, Dove Sensitive Skin Bath bars or Summer's Eve Cleansing cloths have just a few ingredients so that they won't disrupt the pH balance of the vagina. You can use these wipes to stay clean while you have your period or use them after a workout to clean the sweat. Vagisil Sensitive Plus Moisturizing Wash is also a good choice. It also doesn't have ingredients that can change the pH balance of the vagina, and it has just a small amount of fragrance to help you feel fresh. 

If you have a feminine issue such as a yeast infection or vaginal itching, you will want to speak with your doctor about what you need. You can then shop for the solution on Instacart to get it delivered right to your home. You'll find a wide selection of vaginal creams to moisturize your vaginal area if you experience dryness or itching. 

If your doctor diagnoses a yeast infection, you can find over-the-counter medications that will help fight the infection and soothe the symptoms simultaneously. If you want to find out if you have a yeast infection, over-the-counter testing kits are available. Just make sure to follow up with your doctor. 

PMS, or premenstrual syndrome, is the group of symptoms that leads to cramping during a woman's period. The pain is different for every woman, and it can differ from month to month. Some women experience mild pain, while it is excruciating for others. The pain usually starts between seven to 14 days before your period and stops soon after your period begins. In many cases, over-the-counter pain medication designed to treat PMS will help. 

As women get older, they often have bladder control problems. You might dribble when you sneeze or leak when you laugh. Products made for bladder incontinence will catch leaks and dribbles and pull the moisture away from your skin. You can find pads and liners specifically designed for bladder leakage. These stick on to your underwear and have a waterproof backing that prevents overflow from getting to your clothes. Pads are often curved and have elastic on the sides that help them curve around your body to prevent leaks from going over the edges. Liners are longer and have better protection from front to back. 

All the bladder control products have a saturation point or a point where they stop holding liquid. You might have to try a few different brands and products to find the one that works best for you.
