Herbal Menstrual Pads: Yay or Nay

Herbal pads are slowly making a name for itself because more women are becoming more health conscious but does it work? Well I can attest that I’ve had a few trial and errors because most of the herbal pads that I have tried are very thin even the ones labeled “super”.

Pro to using herbal pads

  • No foul chemical odor from the pad once it’s time to change it unlike the commercial brand pads.
  • Healthier for the vagina (less chemicals)
  • Doesn’t affect the PH levels.

Cons to using herbal pads

  • Not heavy enough for heavy bleeders, has to be changed every 20-30 minutes depending on the flow.
  • More expensive and only in select stores (harder to access).
  • Some of the herbal scented pads can be sensitive and uncomfortable  to the vagina for the first time.


Herbal Pads are a healthier alternative but if I had to choose it would probably be  the commercial brand pads because it’s easier to find and most of their super labeled pads are more suitable for heavy bleeders. It’s a nay for now.
