I made the switch to cloth pads last month, and bought some from Sckoon. They showed up right at the end of my period so, this is my first real month trying them out. I have two questions.
Okay so like… there’s the pad holder, with the two rings, and then you slip the cloth pad insert in under the two rings. My first issue is that the two rings, most especially the front one, get soaked with blood and then feel wet/cold against my skin. Is there anything I can do about this? Towards the end of last month’s period when it was light, I was able to fold the pad up and over the ring and tuck it in. But this month is too heavy for me to do that, the pad would be too short.
Second, maybe it’s because I have bad posture but… the pad insert keeps clumping up, like it scrunches in towards the center, leaving the left and right sides of the holder unprotected. This leads to me bleeding all over the pad holder, which overflows onto my underwear. I just stained my favorite nightgown due to that. =/ Is there a way to prevent the clumping?
