Cloth pad converts are known for (loudly) proclaiming that reusable cloth pads changed their life. If you’ve never tried cloth pads before, you might be wondering how a pad could possibly revolutionize your period. In this article, you'll learn just five of the ways switching to cloth pads changed my life for the better.

5 Reasons to Use Reusable Cloth Pads

Cloth Pads1. No more soreness.

When I was in high school, I hated my period with a passion because I was painfully sore “down there” for a week. Little did I know…that’s not supposed to happen! Once I switched to cloth, I realized that my body was irritated by the moisture-wicking chemicals inside regular disposable pads. Now my period is relatively painless (except for the occasional bout of cramps when I don’t take good care of my body throughout the rest of the month).

2. Pretty colors = major mood boosters.

This one might sound silly, but it’s totally true for me. Cloth pads can be pretty! And pretty colors make me feel happy. I enjoy picking out which pads I’m going to use each day during my cycle, and I have my go-to favorites that always brighten my mood. It’s kind of like wearing really awesome underwear. No one knows about it, but it makes you feel good anyway!

3. Your period will go by in a flash.



I am routinely surprised each time my period is over. “It only just started!” I’ll think. Then I’ll check my period tracker app and realize, yup, it’s about time to be wrapping up. Scientifically, it’s unclear if switching to cloth from disposables actually makes your period shorter, or if it just feels like it! But then…as long as it feels quick, does it really matter?
