Hul. My friend just told me that the pain you feel during menstruation is caused by the absorbency of your sanitary pad. So, I searched online and found out that it’s true that strong absorbency can cause pain. I’ve been using super absorbent pads all this time. 

100% It’s because of the sanitary pad ❌

The polymer absorbent in sanitary pads can be one of the factors causing menstrual pain ⭕️

When choosing sanitary pads, knowledge is also necessary. Some women say, “When wearing a sanitary pad, it feels like the uterus is sagging and hurts down there.” Many women complain of discomfort and pain associated with wearing sanitary pads. The ‘polymer absorbent’ inside the sanitary pad may be the cause. This substance has the advantage of quickly absorbing menstrual blood. However, some women may experience a ‘rejection reaction.’ If there is discomfort associated with wearing sanitary pads, it’s advisable to check the back. If there is polymer absorbent present, it’s better to avoid it.

Pads using polymer absorbents offer excellent absorption, preventing leaks and providing a comfortable, dry feeling. However, the issue lies in their excessive absorbency. Prolonged use of such pads can worsen menstrual pain due to excessive gravity. Feeling like your insides are sagging during menstruation could also be due to the properties of the polymer absorbents, which draw moisture.

The absorbents in sanitary pads have the strong ability to absorb moisture, which can even take away the necessary moisture from the vagina. If you experience a severe pain during menstruation, trying a different pad might be helpful.


How is it possible for absorbents to absorb moisture from your body?ㅋㅋㅋ Bring some scientific research instead of pseudoscienceㅋㅋㅋㅋ

-But if you experience pain in your lower abdomen during your period, changing your pads might be worth to try. I don’t know if it’s because of the absorbents or whatsoever, but changing pads does make the pain intensity different. 

-I used menstrual cups for 10 years. It was good at first, but then it started to make me get irritations. I learned that sanitary pads made out of cotton are the best, even though washing them is a pain in the ass. 

-Damn, are sanitary pads vacuum cleaners?

-The real problem is sanitary pads will eventually leak…

-I got a pelvic inflammatory disease from using menstrual cups for 2 yearsㅠㅠ For those who use menstrual cups, you should pay attention to your hygiene. 

-I’ve been using sanitary pads made out of cotton for more than 10 years and I still feel pain during my period. I don’t think sanitary pads are the problem here. 

-It’s true, though. I felt so much better after switching from regular pads to cotton sanitary pads. 

-Does this even make sense?

-Sounds like a pseudoscience…ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

-Try putting a pad in your mouth and see if your saliva dries up

-That makes sense. I hardly feel any pain during my period when I use tampons.

-The pain you feel during your period is caused by the uterus moving to make the things attached to the wall fall off. What do sanitary pads have to do with it?ㅋㅋㅋ

-If that’s not the case, you should get tested for uterine fibroids or ovarian cysts. 

-The article I read warned that the longer you wear sanitary pads, the more chemicals can come ut of them. Chemical absorbents can have harmful effects when they enter your vagina. Since they have the strong ability to absorb, it can also absorb the good bacteria in your vagina, which can cause irritation in your vagina. Additionally, chemical absorbents swell into transparent and gel-like shapes. It can disrupt the airflow in your vagina and lead to hygiene issues. 

-There are people who believe this kind of nonsenseㅋㅋㅋ It’s not like sanitary pads are vacuum cleaners…
