This is especially true for daily, after all, by them, the representatives of the beautiful sex are most often used. What is the modern market for daily gaskets, as well as how to choose suitable products, will be discussed in this article.
Features and destination
There is an universal misconception in the fact that the allocation of female genital organs is a mandatory sign of dysbacteriosis, as well as other diseases or violations. However, there are also healthy women allocations, sometimes it is even an indicator that ovulation occurs (which is one of the signs of a healthy, capable of having a woman). The average volume of the healthy secret can be from 1 to 5 ml per day depending on the individual characteristics of each woman.
Unhealthy are only some discharge with characteristic features, as well as their large number. Nevertheless, some, even healthy, allocations can bring discomfort. It was for its elimination that daily women’s hygiene gaskets were created. They differ from the usual appointment, appearance, absorbity, manufacturing materials. Their level of absorption less than the usual. Therefore, they look thinner the usual models.
Despite its destination, laying with a note “for every day” not always should always be worn daily. There are several special periods when they really need the most.
- As already mentioned, this period of ovulation. It occurs even in those women who have some gynecological problems.

- As a subject for menstrual bowls and tampons.
- As well as daiiy In the first or last days of menstruation (especially in the last when the risk of leakage is already significantly less).

In fact, the whole huge range of the nearest store’s daily stores can be sorted over several groups (in particular, in size and forms, as well as on the materials of the manufacture).

There are gaskets of universal form – they can be worn with any linen options. Their feature – subtlety and flexibility. They adapt to any shape, at the same time keeping their ability to absorb.
There are standard gaskets – ultra-thin or thin (usually marked with such letters as s and m) and have 1-2 drops of absorption levels. You can also meet long and wide gaskets, they are usually denoted by the letter L. They are not only more elongated, but also thicker, and they have more absorbability. The first are used during ovulation or during small discharge, the second is used in the last days of menstruation.
And you can also see daily pads with wings. They are needed for a more dense fastening to the linen. However, models without wings are invisible on shorts.
By material manufacturing
Usually, Absorbent layer of almost all gaskets is made from cellulose or cellulose compounds and superabsorbents. The main differences come to the surface layer – Products can be both natural (cotton or viscose) and made of synthetic compounds (polyethylene or propylene). Some manufacturers produce gaskets with silver ions (often this is Japanese manufacturers). Most of the manufacturers adds fragrances or make extracts of various plants. Pictures on gaskets are made using ink.

Tips for choosing
Sometimes you choose suitable and high-quality strips is not easy – the range in the stores is just a huge. The following criteria will help make the right and appropriate choice.
- Package. It is best to choose gaskets in polyethylene, not paper packaging. Despite all other arguments, it is in such a package that the gasket retains its properties, is not affected by humidity, third-party odors. Even better if each gasket is in an individual packaging. Wearing such gaskets with you in my handbag easier and more convenient – they do not get dirty and do not absorb extra smells or even liquids.
- Excius. It is best to give preference without smelling. They neutralize the smell due to a special average layer converting fluid to the gel, and not due to a large number of faddles. However, some prefer gaskets with flavors. In this case, it is better to choose products with natural fragrances.
- Air permeability. “Breathable” pads do not allow the “greenhouse effect” to be created, which prevents the occurrence of unpleasant sensations, itching, diaperosis. This aspect is especially important when choosing daily gaskets.
- bottom layer. The lower layer of some gaskets is made from polyethylene, which creates a “greenhouse effect”. If the large absorption of the gasket is not entirely important, it is better to abandon such a purchase. Some manufacturers produce products where the polyethylene layer is located at the edges. Such models are considered a good acquisition.
- Adhesive base. Best so that it is not on the whole surface of the gaskets, but along the edges. Glue has the ability to block air access, even in a small amount.
- For women in the postpartum period, it is recommended to refer to the selection of gaskets responsibly. The skin and the mucosa during this period is still too sensitive, even if all postpartum discharges stopped. It is best to use gaskets with supporting normal ph coatings. And you can also stop your choice on gaskets with silver ions. In this situation, you need to remember that flavored gaskets are more suitable for open and healthy women.
How many years can be worn?
Most of the women of the older generation believes that the use of gasket girls before the beginning of menstruation. And this delusion concerns all pads – both ordinary and daily. It actively inspires girls. It is believed that gynecological problems can only be in having sex girls, but it is not. Problems on the female part can begin long before the first month (the average age of their occurrence is 12-14 years old), as well as highlights from the vagina. One of the reasons may be dysbacteriosis when receiving various drugs.
In addition, the risk of infection with various pathogens is above all when bathing in water bodies and even public baths. Simply put, Nobody is insured against gynecological disorders. Therefore, it is possible to use gaskets only in the presence of diseases, deviations and preferably after the prescription of the doctor. In general, the use of daily gaskets from 9 years. Using pads at such a young age without visible causes are not recommended. Gaskets can not replace daily arms and observance of hygiene.
Middle age when girls are already starting to use daily on their own – 11 years.
How to use it?
Put on the gasket is quite simple. First you need to wash your hands with soap and well dry them. Next, you need to take the gasket and open the paper from the adhesive tape. Then the laying is located on the lasty and sticks. In the presence of wings, they also need to be glued on the back of the panties. You often have no need to change the daily – you can do it once every 4 to 6 hours. Their round-the-clock use, even if you are accustomed to them, is not considered normal. Although, of course, all gasket manufacturers will say the opposite. Nevertheless, you do not need to wear them at night – the skin should relax. In addition, when changing the gasket more than once every 6 hours on its surface, active breeding of malicious bacteria begins.
Allergy’s owners need to use products with accuracy, in case of rash or unpleasant sensations, it is immediately replaced or to stop using. The holders of sensitive skin are best acquired by products that have passed dermatological and hygienic studies, as well as with the minimum amount of fragrances. Products made from natural or environmentally friendly materials, as well as without a polyethylene layer can improve the situation. It is not recommended to store gaskets in the open form and in the bathroom. They can be blocked or absorbed a lot of unnecessary moisture.
Remember that the pledge of pleasant wearing the daily is constant compliance with hygiene (in particular, you need to take shower at least once a day).
