How should you handle your personal hygiene during a period?

You should change your sanitary protection 4 to 5 times a day, and more frequently when the flow is heaviest. This is usually during the first two days. At night you can use a special night-time pad that you can leave on until the morning. When you’re on, you should wash your genital region in the morning and evening using nothing but warm water or a mild soap adapted in line with the pH value of that part of your body. Ask at the pharmacy if you need help. You should change your underwear daily when you have your period, too, and use sanitary pads so you feel fresh.
