Tips to Choose a Pad for Heavy Period Flow
Every woman goes through the menstrual cycle differently. While some can go hours risking just a stained panty (while never getting it stained because they know their body), others must rush for a check every few hours. These are just two of the many different experiences that women go through.

Several surveys have concluded that nearly 60% of women use the wrong sanitary pad size. Most of them don’t even realize it until it starts affecting them in some way. This can be changed by revaluating your choice of a pad, by analyzing your period flow and corelating it with the type and size of your pad.
ALWAYS has always strived to prioritize women’s protection and comfort. Wearing the right menstrual pad that fits well will help keep the sanitary and menstrual woos at bay. So, when choosing a sanitary pad, stay away from the ‘one size fits all’ rule as it doesn’t apply here. You are not buying a pair of socks, are you?
Every woman has a unique experience with her period flow, and thus, the choice must be distinct as well. The pad must not just control your flow but also fit with your shape. This is the sweet spot that you should aim for when finalizing the size and type of sanitary pad. It’s okay to experiment with different sizes, types, and even manufacturers because finding the perfect pad can go a long way in maintaining overall menstrual health.
Different Types of Sanitary Pads
sanitary pads come in different lengths and coverages. At ALWAYS, we specifically aim to match your protection needs. For example, a special night-time sanitary pad is designed with increased coverage. This, in turns, helps reduce leakage at night when movements are more frequent.
Every ALWAYS product is designed keeping in mind the varying shapes and sizes of women’s body. If you prefer a pad with wings, aim for a pad that has wide coverage and the extra support of wings. If you prefer a thinner variant that gives you more comfort, go with a lighter pad or maybe a pantyliners.
You should ideally depend on a sanitary pad to manage those heavy flow days.
A better way to find the right pad for you is to correlate the flow’s intensity and the size you are looking for. This ALWAYS May Fit chart may come in handy:
