Do you know the fear of a long flight, train journey or car journey full of traffic jams ahead of you as your period approaches? Having to stop at the next rest stop only to find that there is no soap; or on a hike in the middle of nature noticing that the tampon needs to be changed?
Tampons and menstrual cups have the disadvantage that germs can get into the vagina when they are inserted, so you should pay attention to the appropriate hygiene when changing. Not everywhere are there public toilets or the possibility to wash your hands with soap at any time, so it is best to have disinfectant with you to be able to change your period products hygienically.
Menstrual cups should also be washed out after emptying and boiled thoroughly after the period at the latest to kill germs and prevent infections.
If you want to avoid changing on the go, we recommend period underwear. Our Strong Styles in particular have the advantage that they can absorb up to 6 tampons of liquid and can therefore be worn for an extra long time. This makes them ideal for long flights, train journeys or, in general, entire day trips.
Should you need or want to change them in between, you can simply change without risking dangerous infections from insufficiently washed hands.
