What You Should Never Do In Your Periods!

During your periods, there are several things you should avoid doing to minimize discomfort, maintain hygiene, and prevent potential health issues. Here are some things you should not do during your period:

  1. Reuse old pads: Always use clean, fresh pads to prevent infection and unpleasant odors.
  2. Wear tight pants: Tight pants can cause a bloating feeling and make your period more uncomfortable. Instead, opt for looser clothes and comfortable fabrics.
  3. Wear a pad for too long: Changing your pad every 4-6 hours is recommended to maintain hygiene and prevent infection.
  4. Wash down there with soap: Harsh soaps can disturb the vagina's natural pH balance and dry out the delicate skin, leading to irritation. Instead, choose a pH-balanced, mild intimate wash.
  5. Create a bathroom schedule: Your period is not an excuse to avoid using the restroom. Going to the bathroom regularly can help prevent bacterial infections.
  6. Ask for a sanitary napkin in public: Carry your own supplies to avoid awkward situations.
  7. Ignore the expiry date: Always check the expiry date of your period supplies and avoid using expired products.
  8. Reuse sanitary gloves: If you had to use gloves to insert a pad or tampon, don't reuse them.
  9. Use a tampon if you have an IUD: Using tampons while having an intrauterine device (IUD) can increase the risk of infection.
  10. Wear all white: Avoid white clothing during your period to prevent stains.

Remember to take care of yourself during your period by maintaining proper hygiene, using the right products, and avoiding activities that may cause discomfort or infection.
