When should I use a panty liner versus a pad?

Thin and comfortable to wear, panty liner are a very versatile product. They can be used in many different situations. For example, if you are using a tampon, you might like to use a panty liner, too, for a little extra protection. You might also like to wear a panty liner when you don’t have your period, to help absorb normal vaginal discharge, perspiration (sweat). Pads are thicker and more absorbent than Panty liner. They can offer you better protection when your menstrual flow is heavier. Panty liner can be worn any time you want to feel a little fresher and more protected.  Try our Period Calendar to help you get a better idea of when to know that your period is coming and when to be prepared.
