Because no 2 women flow alike











Some of the common ways women bleed have been tagged in each post:

  • Mostly out the front – More out the front than the back or middle. Women who bleed like this need to position their pads up higher at the front to cover up to their pubic bone as the blood often comes out the very front of the labia.

  • Mostly out the back – More comes up out the back (“bum crack”), than the middle or front. Women who bleed like this sometimes need very long pads, or styles with a longer (and perhaps wider) back section, that cover more of the “crack” area… Sometimes needing night time length pads to wear during the day.

  • Straight Down (tagged “straightdown”) – Bleeding more or less straight down with no forward or back bleeding. Women who bleed like this can wear shorter pads and tend to have a lighter flow.

  • Down the middle – Bleeding comes out in a line from the front, and out to the back, so covers a large portion of the pad.

  • All Over – Bleeding spreads out, virtually covering the whole pad, or a large portion of it.

  • To the Side – Bleeding that falls more to the side of the pad than in the centre. Not all women bleed down the centre of their pads. While lots of women find they bleed to the side if sitting/laying on their side, some women have this sideways bleeding no matter what.

  • Heavy Flow (tagged “heavy”) – These pads show a heavy flow or large amount of blood on the pad

  • Light Flow (tagged “light”) – These pads show a light flow or small amount of blood on the pad

  • Heart Shape – Occasionally there will be a stand out shape which may be tagged as well for interest, such as a heart shape.  These tags are not colour sorted – Heartshape

Because very few pads fit perfectly into one of those categories, most pads will be tagged with more than one. For example if the flow pattern is mostly out the front, but also fairly straight down, then it will be tagged as “front” and “straightdown”.
