When menstruation comes, you need to prepare yourself with pads to accommodate your menstrual blood when you are active. There are various types of pads for every activity such as night pads, long pads, regular pads, postpartum pads, and many more.
In general, night pads are meant to be worn while sleeping, so they must be absorbent in the midsection and back as fluid flows from the midsection to the back. Because the pads are longer, the night pads have a larger capacity than the day pads. What is the difference between night pads and day pads?
Difference between Night Pads & Regular Pads
The difference between day and night pads can be seen from their size and shape. Night pads are designed to be longer and wider in size to reduce leakage during sleep. because during sleep, we can not control the movement of the body. Meanwhile, the shape of the sanitary pads is designed to facilitate activities so that they are thinner and shorter in size. Night pads generally have a size of 29-42 cm and the size of day pads ranges from 23-26 cm.
In addition, for their own absorption, both of them have high absorption. In addition, the absorption capacity of sanitary napkins in Indonesia must follow the rules that have been implemented by the government which are recorded as SNI 16-6363-2000 concerning sanitary napkins, if the absorption capacity is at least 10 times the initial weight.
Is it Okay to Use Night Pads During the Day?
Although these two types of pads can be used at night and during the day, night pads and day pads must be used according to activities and needs.
Night pads are not suitable and uncomfortable to use during activities because the shape and size of the night pads makes it more difficult to move, causing friction with the skin. This can cause discomfort.
