Your period doesn’t have to get in the way of your day. The right feminine care products can help you deal with menstrual flow and feel confident. CVS carries a wide range of menstrual care products, including a large assortment of maxi pads and tampons. You can shop in stores or buy online for discreet shipping right to your door.
A maxi pad is a disposable cloth worn in your underwear. The adhesive on the back of the pad holds it in place throughout your day. The absorbent pad draws in the menstrual fluid to keep your clothing clean. When the pad becomes saturated, you simply remove it and throw it away.
When shopping for maxi pads, it’s important to consider absorbency. On the heaviest days of your period and overnight, you’ll need more absorbent protection. Thinner pads with light and moderate protection can be used on lighter days and for spotting in between periods.
Some pads feature wings, tabs that wrap around the crotch area of panties. Wings help to keep pads secure to prevent slipping and can capture leaks along the sides of your underwear.
Long pads extend further in the front and back than conventional pads. They offer extra protection and are beneficial for women who sit for long periods of time during the day.
