How to use a pad

View the easy step-by-step guide below,
or click here to watch our How To video

STEP 1

Are You Ready?

Open the wrapper and fold the pad out flat.

STEP 2

Peel the pad away from the wrapper and/or backing paper (the back of the pad should feel sticky). You might need to hold onto the back paper to make it easier.

STEP 3

Position it in your pants.

(for long and night pads the back is wider).

STEP 4

If there are extra flaps, remove the tab to reveal the sticky area on the wings and fold these wings around and underneath your underwear to hold it in place and keep it secure.

And you are done... Go have some fun!

Maybe you could try and say that you would prefer to use a tampon as you have a heavy flow and tbh if u really like swimming then don't let ur period stop you so just ask and be polite xxx
