FAQs about Period Care Products

Got some burning questions? Let's dive right in

Period products: What are the options?

Below are some widely used options:

  1. Menstrual Cups: Designed to be worn internally and to collect menstrual blood instead of absorbing it like traditional, single-use period products. They’re usually made of high quality silicone or medical-grade TPE like the Hello Cup.
  2. Menstrual Discs: Like cups, they’re also folded before you insert them; however, discs sit higher than cups - hanging out just below the cervix to collect your flow. Think of them as a fresh twist on the classic tampon, but better in so many ways because they hold more and are reusable for years, saving you money and making them better for the planet.
  3. Period Underwear: Packed with absorbent layers for a leak-free, eco-friendly menstrual experience. Because they’re reusable, they are a great cost-effective option, simply wash and reuse
  4. Reusable Pads: Like disposable pads but better for the environment as they can be washed and reused. Typically made with organic cotton, bamboo or absorbent materials, they’re a great sustainable alternative.
  5. Reusable Liners: Ideal for those lighter days or for extra peace of mind, these slim, discreet liners are washable making them an eco-friendly choice. A must-have in your period care arsenal.
  6. Tampons: A traditional period care product crafted from materials such as cotton. They offer internal protection and are designed for single-use, with some featuring applicators for easier insertion.
  7. Pads: Designed for single-use external protection. Typically made with absorbent materials such as cotton and a plastic adhesive backing for secure placement. Available in multiple absorbency levels to cater to personal preferences and needs.
  8. Liners: Similar to pads, but thinner, more compact and made for single-use. These are normally used for spotting, discharge or light flow days at the end of your menstrual cycle.

How to know the right type of period product for my body?

Choosing period care products is a personal process and it really comes down to what feels good for you. Everyone is different, and what may work for someone else may not work for you. It's okay if you need to try a few options before finding the one that feels is right for you. Think about what’s most important to you—whether it's comfort, managing your flow, sticking to a budget, or making eco-friendly choices. Here are some friendly pointers to help you find your way.

How often should I change my period product?

It is normally recommended to change your period products at least every 4 to 8 hours. It will depend on your flow and the product you use. Menstrual cups and period discs tend to have the highest capacity. However, no matter how light your flow is, or even if there is no flow, good hygiene practices are important.

  • Pads and Liners: For optimal hygiene and comfort, aim to replace your pads and liners every 3 to 4 hours. Regular changing helps maintain freshness and prevents any discomfort.
  • Tampons: Changing your tampons every 4 to 6 hours is recommended for both safety and comfort. It's crucial to remember never to leave a tampon in for more than 8 hours to avoid any risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), a rare but serious medical condition.
  • Menstrual Cups and Discs: These products are designed for longer wear, but it’s recommended you empty and wash them every 8 to 12 hours.

Are period products safe to use overnight?

Yes, period products are safe to use overnight, but it's important to choose the right ones and follow some guidelines for safety and comfort. The type of product you use will depend on your menstrual flow. `tampons should be changed every few hours so you might find it more convenient to use reusable and eco-friendly period underwear or menstrual cups / discs overnight.

Can I swim while wearing a period product?

Obviously swimming with a pad is a no-go. However, tampons and menstrual cups/ discs are completely safe to use internally (tampons can get a bit soggy), and many competitive swimmers rely on them during practices and events while on their period.

What is Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS), and how can I prevent it?

Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS) is a serious condition caused by a bacterial toxin. It’s very rare and can be associated with tampon use. It’s caused by a bacteria getting into your bloodstream and is rarely associated with menstrual cups, pads, period underwear or menstrual discs because, unlike tampons, these products do not dry the user out and so they have less risk of an abrasion. TSS starts with flu-like symptoms but can quickly worsen with low blood pressure, fast heart rate, and organ failure.

To prevent TSS:

  • Use the lowest absorbency tampon needed
  • Change tampons regularly.
  • Avoid internal products if you have a cut or abrasion in your vagina
  • Remove your tampon, cup or disc if you are feeling unwell
  • Consult a doctor if you have fever, vomiting, or diarrhea during menstruation.

How do I properly dispose of period products?

It's important to remember that flushing sanitary pads and tampons down the toilet can cause potential plumbing problems.  Instead, wrap used products in toilet paper or tissue and dispose of them in the bin. Single-use period products can take hundreds of years to break down in landfill so if you are looking for an eco-friendly period care alternative, consider reusable products such as menstrual cups, menstrual discs, reusable period underwear or reusable pads.

How can I manage period pain?

Applying heat to your lower abdomen is a great way to alleviate menstrual cramps. Over-the-counter pain relievers and, for severe cases, prescription medications may be necessary. Alternative treatments like acupuncture could also offer relief. Consulting with a healthcare provider is essential for severe pain or when underlying conditions are suspected, to develop a tailored treatment plan.

Eco-friendly period products options

Eco-friendly period products are better for you, the planet and your budget. At Hello Period, we're proud to offer a ‘bloody brilliant’ range of sustainable period care products. Our menstrual cups and discs are crafted from the highest quality medical-grade materials. Additionally Hello Undies, Pads and Liners offers a reusable, long-lasting alternative to traditional single-use products. Designed to last up to two years, our period underwear significantly cuts down on waste, providing a stark contrast to the over 500 years it takes for single-use pads and tampons to decompose.

Are Organic Tampons better for the planet than reusable options?

While organic tampons represent a leap forward from their conventional counterparts, they may not be the ultimate solution for our planet when reusable alternatives are on the table.

Organic Tampons:

  • Pros: No chemicals, better for your health, decompose faster than regular tampons.
  • Cons: Still end up as waste after one use.

Although they're an upgrade from standard tampons, they don't solve the waste problem.

Reusable Period Products (Menstrual Cups, Period Discs, Reusable Undies, Pads and Liners):

  • Reduce Waste: Significantly cuts down on landfill waste.
  • Cost-effective: Buy once, use for years.
  • Eco-friendly: Less manufacturing and packaging waste.
  • Body-safe: Free from harsh materials.

Bottom Line:

Organic tampons are better for you than non-organic ones but still contribute to waste. Reusable products, however, stand out as the best choice for the planet. They save money, reduce waste, and are gentle on your body.
