Is the larger the absorption of sanitary napkins, the better

don’t let high absorption sanitary napkins become a “culture base” for bacteria

“Not only has strong absorption, but also has good protection function!”, This is the slogan of most sanitary napkins. When buying, many women will also choose sanitary napkins with strong absorption and good protection function. They think that they can use the same sanitary napkin for a long time without worrying about leakage and running to the toilet frequently, which saves a lot of trouble. In fact, this idea is wrong, because menstrual blood is rich in nutrients, which is easy to become a “culture base” for bacteria to flourish; The menstrual blood accumulated on the sanitary napkin will greatly increase the humidity of the perineum, deteriorate the permeability, and be more conducive to bacterial reproduction, thus increasing the incidence of various gynecological diseases.

sanitary napkins with large absorption should also be replaced frequently.

Some women like to use sanitary napkins with large absorption during the journey. They think that they don’t have to run to the toilet frequently, and they are not afraid of leakage, which is very convenient. Gynaecologists say that large absorption is only for the sake of being prepared when conditions are inconvenient occasionally, not for laziness and trouble saving. During the journey, especially on the train, people drink less water, change sanitary napkins infrequently, and the air is also hot, which is easy to cause germs to breed in the perineum and cause infection. Especially for girls who often go on business or like to travel, we should pay special attention to this.

A survey shows that Japanese women change sanitary napkins six times a day on average during menstruation, while Chinese women only change sanitary napkins three times. As a result, sanitary napkins, which were originally of good quality, have become hotbeds for rapid propagation of germs because they have not been replaced in time, which has brought harm to the health of users.

Health reminder: experiments show that after two hours of continuous use of ordinary sanitary napkins, the total number of bacteria on the surface can reach 107 per square centimeter. Therefore, when using sanitary napkins, remember to change them frequently, generally every 2-4 hours. In addition, when using sanitary napkins, you should also be careful with drugs or fragrant sanitary napkins to prevent allergy; Be sure to wash your hands before opening the sanitary napkin.
