How many hours we can use one pad?

Changing your pad every 3 or 4 hours (more if your period is heavy) is good hygiene and helps prevent bad odors.

This is especially true if you’ll be playing sports or rushing around from class to class. Changing pads often also helps prevent accidental leaks.

How do I stop my pad from leaking?

Be sure to place your pad right in the middle of your underwear so that they do not go too far down or too far up.

Also, make sure that the wings of the pad wrap tightly around the bottom of the middle of the underwear. You may just want to use panty liners above and below your pad in places where you tend to leak.
