Ways to Get a Decent Night’s Rest While on Your Period
If You MUST, Double Up: For those with heavy flows and periods that last longer than most, an option you can try if you just can’t seem to keep dry is wearing two pads to sleep. Some encourage trying two panties also, but that just seems like WAY too much. If you were wondering, we’re definitely not talking about wearing one on top of the other. Instead, you’d wear one in front of the other for more leak coverage all around. Pads with wings are the best options for doubling up because they’ll have a better chance of staying in place through the night.
Keep Your Legs Closed…Seriously Though: As nice as it is to spread your long limbs out on your bed and stretch out, doing so on your period will make you vulnerable for uber-leakage. To prevent that, we encourage the idea of sleeping with your legs closed or crossed (at the feet of course). That way your pad doesn’t move and any leakage stays in that designated area, which is much better than letting it find its way through your bottoms and onto your bed.
