    How often should I change my pad?

     
     
     
      Libra answer:    
     

    You should change your pad when it looks like the fluid is getting close to the sides and ends of your pad.  If you’re not sure, a guide is every 3-4 hours before odour can begin to form.

      You asked:
    How often should I change my tampon?
     
     
     
      Libra answer:    
     

    Ideally before it starts to leak!  If your tampon does leak it means it is full and needs to be changed.  A guide is to change every 3-4 hours, but if you find you need to change more often due to leakage try the next absorbency up, and use a liner at the same time to avoid leaks on your underwear. Tampons are not recommended for overnight use.  For the best protection overnight, we recommend Libra Goodnights Pads.

      You asked:

    How does a pad work?

     
     
     
      Libra answer:    
     

    The top layer of the pad has a soft surface to protect your skin. The design of Libra Pads allows fluid to seep in, but not out. Under this surface lies the core. It absorbs all your menstrual blood, locking it securely into the pad. The bottom layer prevents leakage from the bottom. The pad also has adhesive strips on the underside, plus wings which help to keep the pad securely in place.

      You asked:
    How do I use a pad?
     
     
     
      Libra answer:    
     

    First remove the pad from its package. As you unfold it, remove the protective covering to expose the sticky strips. Secure the pad by placing the strips against your underwear. Make sure the pad is centred in the middle of your underwear. Check with your underwear on – if the pad is off-centre, reposition it by carefully removing it and moving it to the desired place.
