Congratulations to….. Amy M!
For this giveaway, we asked you: How long is your cycle? and How long have you had your period?
The purpose of these questions is to show the wide range in period cycle lengths regardless of age.
We collected answers from girls who had just started their periods to women who have had their periods for 32 years.
Although many girls hover around the 28 day average, your answers showed a range of 27 days to as long as 40 days. Many girls also reported irregular periods (don’t know when their next period is coming) which is completely normal especially if it’s the first couple years of starting your period.
Amy’s cycle is 30-35 days and she’s had her period for about 23 years now.

14ct individually wrapped feminine pads
Cute Design & Dry Fast Absorption
Thanks to a friend traveling abroad, I got my hands on these Nana pads! Nana feminine hygiene is sold in Belgium and France.
To be honest, I was a bit weary of trying these pads. Could this thin flimsy pad really handle my heavy flow? Well I took the chance and the answer is yes!
They are super thin (3mm) and although flimsy, they’re also super flexible. I highly recommend wearing these with snug fit panties. They hug every curve, flex with your body just like your normal panties and combined with the super soft cover, they feel cozy and very comfortable.
They are also a bit smaller (240mm) so I would recommend these for teens looking for a smaller regular flow pad.
These pads are meant for the slightly above normal flow days. And just like they claim, they absorb super fast and the cover still feels soft.
There is as much period showing on top of the pad as there was on the bottom and this is a good indicator that the pad is doing a good job at absorbing and pulling period away from my body.
The middle (where it absorbs the most) can feel a little soggy once it becomes saturated but the pad is very breathable so I didn’t feel sweaty down there. I have worn far more uncomfortable pads that have absorbed less.
I didn’t find that the cute cover design did anything to direct the absorption though. My period looked like it just absorbed and spread out on its own. I didn’t experience any period flowing over the sides so there were no leaks!
The cover has a distinct front and back. The front has a cute heart and the back splits into two with a noticeably empty space in the middle.
I don’t quite understand this design because I find that when I lean back, my period slides down the middle of my bum and that’s where I need the most absorption. I prefer to have my period stay close to the core or middle and away from the sides so I don’t understand why they would want the period to absorb closer to the sides.
Super thin, flexible, and a cottony soft cover make this pad one of the most comfortable and cozy pads I’ve ever worn. Absorption is fast and the pad does a great job at pulling moisture away from your body. When the pad reaches saturation it can feel a bit soggy but the pad is very breathable so it’s still comfortable and doesn’t feel sweaty down there.
The back end of the pad splits into two with a space in the middle so if you prefer more protection in the back I would not recommend this pad.
- Regular – Regular Plus flow
- Day time wear
- Teens looking for a smaller fit
Not Recommended for:
- Night time – wear a longer pad
- Those who prefer more protection in the back
I used to count the days on a calender but as I got more used to my period and more familiar with my body, I started to use the rhythm method.
Share your answer with me in the comments section!
Sometimes no matter how hard I try, my period still finds a way to leak.
My last period came as bit of a surprise. It was about a little over a week early and I’m not quite sure why… I recently changed my diet quite drastically to include more fats so my educated guess is that the fat is helping with hormone absorption and this may have changed my cycle.
Anyways I put on my trusty Always Infinity pad and went about my day in the office. It was a heavy flow but I really didn’t feel like putting in my DivaCup. What’s the worse that can happen right???
Well I sneezed…..
And well… it gets graphic and more descriptive from here.

When I first started my period, I didn’t know which products I needed. I remember how embarrassing and intimidating I used to feel going out to buy pads and most times I just used whichever pads I had at home.

With the generous help of Always and Feby, this beginner’s prize pack has a pad and liner for all period flows and a memory book and bracelet to help you keep track of your period cycle.

I’ve had my period for ten years and my cycle is around 40ish days but recently I was surprised with a super early period so I’m not entirely sure how long my cycle is now.
