Questions and answers

      You asked:

    What is the difference between pads and liners?

      Libra answer:    

    Pads can absorb much more fluid than liners and are therefore the best solution for the heavier days of your period. Liners are thinner and are better suited to the beginning and end of your period, or for during ovulation if you have vaginal discharge. Libra also offers Extra Thin Liners that can be used in between your periods for those days when you want to feel fresher for longer.

      You asked:
    Why should I use liners and when?
      Libra answer:    

    It’s difficult to know if you’ll bleed during the days just before and after your period, so a liner is good ‘just in case’ protection for your underwear. Liners are also a good option if you have vaginal discharge or just want to feel fresh and comfortable even when you’re not menstruating. They’re also an excellent back up for a tampon.

      You asked:
    Pads or tampons?
      Libra answer:    
    Both pads and tampons are equally effective during your period. It’s really a matter of preference. Simply choose which alternative feels the most comfortable and convenient for you to get on with life as normal during your period.

      You asked:

    I bleed a lot at night and often wake up because my pad is leaking. What can I do?

      Libra answer:    

    Try Libra Goodnights which are specially designed to stop leakage when you’re lying down. The cushiony pad offers comfort and security at night as they are specifically designed to give you an undisturbed sleep.  They are shaped with extra length for superior protection and the better wings are contoured to help the pad stay in place.
