It is a mini protection in the shape of a petal, which folds between the labia minora. They are useful for different possibilities:
- Redirecting the blood to the front or back, this is very practical when you are bleeding in the center and saturating the pads too quickly (perfect if you still have leaks on the sides of the center of your pad )
- It pre-absorbs the blood, if you have your blood coming out quickly and your protection does not have time to absorb its intensity so quickly (the English term is gushing)
- If you practice the instinctive free flow, that you have mini incontinence (the famous little drop when you laugh or cough)
- For cervical mucus
- Can also be used as a “safety net” with the cup, tampons, or the menstrual sponge
You just have to fold it between your lips, there are several possibilities of folding, you have to test several and see which one suits you best. Here is an explanatory video on Instagram.
