reminder 1: sanitary napkins should be changed more than six times a day
“Menstrual blood is rich in nutrients, which is easy to become a ‘culture medium’ for bacteria to flourish. Therefore, sanitary napkins must be replaced diligently.” There are two wrong practices: one is to use sanitary napkins with strong absorption and good protection function, thinking that it is irrelevant to use the same sanitary napkin for a long time; Second, when the menstrual blood volume is low, they forget to replace it.
There is a survey: Japanese women change their menstruation on average six times a day, while Chinese women change their menstruation three times. As Asian people, there should be no great difference in their physique. Because of the high proportion of Chinese women using IUDs, the overall menstrual flow should be greater.
remember when using sanitary napkins:
1. Replace it every two hours;
2. Use medical sanitary napkins with caution to prevent allergy;
3. Wash hands before removing sanitary napkins;
4. Sanitary napkins are in the bathroom. Most toilets in China are dark sanitary, which can’t see sunlight all day, and it’s humid. It’s easy to breed mold and pollute sanitary napkins.
reminder 2: use medical sanitary napkins with caution, especially for women with allergic constitution.
The raw materials of sanitary napkins from regular manufacturers have undergone special safety tests and have been used for many years. If we have allergies, it is usually due to our physical problems – the same reason that some people are allergic to shrimp and crab.
“Sanitary napkin allergy” is not a trivial matter. The only way to prevent allergy is to avoid allergens. Therefore, once you feel irritated, itchy or uncomfortable, stop using this sanitary napkin immediately. It is best to find out the ingredients that cause allergy (the most common is the essence in sanitary napkins). Sanitary napkins with the same ingredients should not be reused.
Experts suggest: “people with sensitive skin should use less dry mesh and more cotton mesh. Dry mesh absorbs quickly, but cotton mesh is softer and more comfortable, with less irritation to the skin.” In addition, allergies are more likely to occur in summer, because moisture accumulates locally, so we should pay more attention to changing it often. “
reminder 3: it is best to change sanitary napkins every two hours
Miss Zhang has always used tampons, mainly because she can’t stand the peculiar smell left on the sanitary napkin by menstrual blood.
In fact, when menstrual blood just flows out, there is no peculiar smell, but when it comes into contact with the air, oxidation reactions occur, and several chemicals are mixed together to produce the smell.
Of course, the way to overcome this problem is to choose products with good ventilation and change them frequently. Dr. Ding Hui also suggested that during menstruation, you should not eat foods high in fat and calories, but should replace them with fruits, vegetables and beans. If you eat a light diet, your body will be refreshed.
reminder 4: keep a distance from the sanitary pad
In the two days before and after menstruation, travel, business trip and other inconvenient bathing situations, the sanitary pad is a convenient, practical and clean choice. Dr. Dante said, “sanitary pads should not be used all the time.”
“The skin of the pudenda is similar to the skin structure of the lips. In medicine, if the lips are damaged, a skilled plastic surgeon can transplant the pudenda skin to rebuild them. The ideal environment for the skin of both places is not to be too dry or too wet. Just imagine, how often do we wrap up our lips?” “Delicate skin needs a very breathable environment. If it is closed too tightly and moisture accumulates, it is easy to breed germs and cause various health problems.
The most ideal product is high woven cotton underwear, and change it every day; If you use sanitary pads, don’t forget to choose products with good ventilation. ” Special advice: “if there are more leucorrhea, yellow color or blood, and peculiar smell, it may be due to vaginitis and other diseases. At this time, the best way is not to use sanitary pads, but to see a gynecologist as soon as possible.”
