The Difference Between Menstrual Pads, Tampons, Menstrual Cups, and Pantyliners

Vaginal discharge and menstruation are normal for every woman and there are several ways to contain blood & vaginal discharge such as using sanitary napkins, tampons, menstrual cups, and pantyliners. Sanitary napkins are usually made using synthetic or cellulose materials to make them easier to absorb and comfortable when used. 

Apart from being used to collect blood during menstruation, sanitary napkins are also commonly used after childbirth and also other situations with vaginal bleeding. 

As for the differences between sanitary napkins, tampons, menstrual cups, and pantyliners, you must know:

The Difference Between Menstrual Pads, Tampons, Menstrual Cups, and Pantyliners

  • Sanitary Pads
    Sanitary pads may better be known as menstrual pads. Pads are one example of an object that can absorb blood from the vagina. The way to use it is to just stick it on your panties face-up to the vagina. In addition to menstruation, sanitary napkins can be used after childbirth or other situations that cause vaginal bleeding. You can get Nona Woman’s organic sanitary napkins at Tokopedia, Shopee, and www.nonawoman.com for the time being.

  • Tampons
    Tampons have the advantage of being equivalent to sanitary napkins in that they absorb menstrual flow. The elongated cylindrical shape has threads that will absorb menstrual flow.

    It is very easy to use a tampon, just insert it into the place where blood comes out of your vagina during menstruation. At this time to get rid of it, you can pull the thread.

    Tampons are very safe because they are only placed in the mouth of the canal. Its small size but high absorption makes many women use it, especially when swimming.

  • Menstrual Cup
    A menstrual cup is rarely used in Indonesia. This could be because menstrual cups feel foreign to women in this country. The shape is a kind of cup/funnel that will be inserted into the place where blood comes out the vagina during menstruation. The effectiveness of this menstrual cup lasts between 6-12 hours but depends on the amount of blood that comes out as well. The material is medical silicone, so it is safe to use. You also need to wash it before using it.

  • Pantyliner
    Just like sanitary napkins, pantyliners are one of the mainstay tools for women during menstruation which are smaller and much thinner than ordinary sanitary napkins. Pantyliners are usually used when having a light period day or for vaginal discharge.

    Even so, the use of too many pantyliners will usually cause irritation to the skin on the surface of a woman's genitals. The reason is that many conventional pantyliners contain substances that can cause irritation. One of the benefits of organic pantyliners is that they are free of these chemicals that can give you skin irritation. You can buy Nona Woman’s organic pantyliners in Tokopedia, Shopee, and www.nonawoman.com for the time being.
