Reusable Cloth Pads
We chose the name Saukhyam for our reusable pads because we believe menstruation has been undervalued and ignored for too long.
I know that there are some women who are very sensitive about their periods and the idea of reusable pads makes them anxious for various reasons. For this reason, I wanted to talk about why I prefer Reusable Cloth Pads over disposable pads or tampons. This is my opinion on things and many women like using more than one thing for menstruation needs so please take what you want from this post. A lot of girls/women use disposable menstrual products (pads, tampons) because they're pretty standard in stores and some people find them more convenient. And some people just don't think about it beyond getting something readily available at the store when they need it. This is totally fine but these products can be ~very~ fulling, especially when you're young and don't know much about your body.
Why I must use Cloth Sanitary Pads? So many reasons, people who care about the environment and how we all affect it, parents of daughters who want to influence their decisions for a better future, those moms among us that would like to limit expenses around menstruation periods, those women who just love taking care of themselves etc. All of these are valid reasons to start using cloth menstrual pads! And you can rest assured: it is not as though this will require a big deal on your part and time and will be really expensive! Actually – so far – It was easier than what everyone tells me! Cloth menstrual pads consist of one or two layers of absorbent material (terry cloth, flannel), and an external waterproof layer (PUL – polyurethane laminate).
