How long?

Postby Radio_Girl » Wed Feb 03, 2021 8:54 pm

How many days before your period do you start to wear a pad or panty liner to be on the safe side? Or do you wait for certain PMS symptoms?

I'm still pretty irregular and new at this so I just wanted some advice :)

My period is crazy irregular, there's no way to predict it, so I just carry pads with me wherever and put one on when I get it. Probably not the best approach, but whatever.

when i start feeling bad and my belly goes rigid like a real stone, you know what im talking about, but i hate it when that happens and i put a pad on and then nothing for three days and then i say 'oh come on take it off nothings happening' (bad idea dont do that) just because i wanted a few hours of fresh more, but is like my bby knows what i do and when i take my pad off,therefore when to let the blood out, so i guess im not vey lucky

What I do is I just carry a pad with me in my purse and I’ve only had to use it twice but usually I always have one pad in my purse just in case and a pair of underwear.

I get sore boobs and cramps(they are really bad when I do straining exercises like rope skipping or running)
And acne outbreaks 😑. My periods are irregular too but I know when I ovulate and my period always comes exactly 14 days after ovulation so the night before I'm supposed to get my period I'll either wear a pantyliner or a light pad

I usually wait until my cramps are bad (I get cramps before my period too) and wait it out when the cramps stops, it’s usually there. If not, I just kinda wait it out (now I’m more at home bc of COVID) and so it doesn’t matter if I stain a bit since I can change easily

To be honest, that's pretty much exactly what I do. Although, I always get nervous to carry pads around, in case they fall out or something.

Mine aren't that irregular but I carry a pad with me all the time just to be sure.
