Pads are made of absorbent material and are designed to soak up the menstrual fluid. Many girls prefer to use pads when they first get their period, but you can choose pads or tampons. Tampons are great for sport or swimming, and are more popular once girls get the hang of having their periods.

Pads are available in different thicknesses and absorbencies. Thickness doesn’t necessarily mean a pad is more absorbent. Ultra thin Pads do the same job as slim/maxi pads; they’re just thinner and more discreet. The absorbency of a pad is also determined by its length – longer pads can soak up more menstrual fluid.

For an extremely thin AND highly absorbent pad, try U by Kotex® Ultrathins. They have micro<MAX Technology® – so they’re micro thin with max absorbency. The core has super absorbent materials including tiny granules that lock away fluid, so there’s much less opportunity for embarrassing leaks.

U by Kotex® Ultrathins are available in Regular, Super and Overnight absorbencies. Regular absorbency is great for everyday ‘regular-flow’ use and Super and Overnight absorbency is perfect for heavy flow and overnight use. So, we have you covered, no matter what your flow is like, or what you’re doing.

Using pads at night

If you’re after protection while you’re getting your beauty sleep, or for an extra long period of time, it’s always better to wear a pad rather than a tampon. U by Kotex® Flexinights are the longest and most absorbent of the U by Kotex® Ultra thin pads range. They’re also great for helping to prevent leakage when you’re lying down as they have a wider back. So enjoy that beauty snooze without a worry!
