Reusable Pads and a Heavy Flow ... how does that go?
It's Britt and I'm BACK with another blog!
Now, let's get personal. I have a very heavy flow. Yup, I just admitted that!
(I hope you are catching on to my sarcasm over here. I definitely don't mind sharing details about my flow!).
Anyways, the reason why I am mentioning this is because I believe that some people are under the impression that if they have a heavy flow then reusable pads aren't for them. Well, I am here to tell you that that's ... NOT TRUE!!
As a monthly Smartliners user with a heavy flow, I can honestly say that using these pads is by far a BETTER experience in comparison to using disposables pads. Firstly, Smartliners are more absorbent. I am able to wear my Smartliners for longer periods of time. Also, since I bleed a lot, there used to be an odor when I wore disposable pads. But now, with Smartliners, that odor is gone. This totally makes sense considering the fact that disposable pads are filled with TOXIC chemicals. Once I made the switch, I was able to say "bye bye harmful chemicals!". Lastly, let's talk about something super important, especially with periods, and that's ... being COMFY! Smartliners are much more comfy, which is obviously important considering the fact that I'm wearing them all day. My V loves the super soft organic cotton!
Clearly, reusable pads (especially Smartliners) are GREAT for heavy flows.
