Ask Courtney: How often should you change your pad?

Georgia, 15 asked: How often should you change your pad?

It all really depends on your flow, I think every four hours is appropriate regardless of how heavy your flow is and sooner if you do have quite a heavy flow. If you don’t change your pad at least every four hours the bacteria in the blood starts to give off a foul odor and if you can smell it I can guarantee you that everyone around you can as well.

I hope this helped and if you guys have any more questions or need advice on certain topics head over to my advice column which can be found under the LIFESTYLE section of my blog.
