How Many Pads Do I Need?

Saturday, 9 February 2019

This really varies woman to woman. It depends on the:
Length of your cycle,
How heavy you are
How your flow varies across the month.

If you already use disposable pads make a note of how many pads you use each day of your cycle i.e. 7 on a heavy day, 3 on a light day.  Replace with the same amount of cloth pads per day x2 (to allow for washing).
 

As a general guide for a short and light cycle 6 daytime and 3 night time
Average length and flow 10 day pads and 4-5 night pads
Longer and heavier cycles 15 day pads and 6-7 night time pads.
