Menstruation is a natural condition experienced by most women every month. During the menstrual period, women need pads that are able to absorb menstrual blood properly to maintain comfort and prevent leakage. Night pads are one of the most important types of pads to use, especially at night when blood flow tends to be more.
Based on research results, leakage of menstrual blood during sleep at night can occur backwards as much as 81% and to the side as much as 27%, because blood flow follows the position of the body during sleep. Therefore, night pads are produced in a different shape, because they adjust the flow of menstrual blood at night, which is widened at the back and sides.
The size is also relatively longer compared to pads for the day. Therefore, using the right pads at night not only maintains comfort, but also prevents serious health problems.

Why is it Important to Use a Pad at Night?
Night is a time when menstrual blood flow in women tends to be more than during the day. This is caused by an increase in the hormone progesterone in a woman's body at night. Therefore, using night pads is very important to absorb the blood that comes out optimally and prevent leakage.
In addition, not using night pads at night can also increase the risk of infection in the intimate area. Moist conditions that occur due to blood that is not absorbed properly can be a place for bacteria and fungi to grow which have the potential to cause infection in the intimate organs.
Infections such as vaginitis or urinary tract infections can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as itching, painful urination, and even impact your overall health if not treated properly. Therefore, it is important for women to use proper night pads to maintain the cleanliness and health of the intimate area during menstruation, especially when sleeping at night.
Now you know how important night pads are to maintain comfort during menstruation. Therefore, it is advisable to prepare night pads when entering the first few days of menstruation so that sleep remains comfortable. In addition, the use of night pads also helps maintain the cleanliness of the reproductive organs by preventing leakage. Remember to change pads as soon as you wake up in the morning so that the female area is kept clean.
