Heavy absorbency: Designed for heavy days and optimum accessibility. 

Absorbs up to 9 tampons or 5 pads of flow.  Great for bladder leaks too!

Hi! I’m a new-and-improved version of our Adaptive Period, inspired by excellent community feedback. I'm the perfect period solution for all types of bodies, abilities, and mobilities. I have soft and secure Velcro fasteners on the sides so you don't have to step in and out of me to wear -  perfect for caretakers or those with limited dexterity. 

I can’t tell you how many times I have been thoroughly wear tested to ensure the Velcro doesn't scratch the body and or create any sensory issues. The Velcro is soft and flexible for comfortable long term wear, and makes it easy to fit around meters and ostomy bags.  

My extended gusset offers maximum coverage from front to back, and is made of organic cotton for ultimate comfort. I know what you’re thinking. I sound so good, can you even wear me if you don’t have any mobility challenges. The answer is yes! As always. Period. Is for everyone. Did I mention how soft I am? 

When to wear: day or night, on heavy or light days.

How long will one pair of Period. last?

Everybody periods differently so it’s tough to be exact. Our average time is about 8 hours on a heavier flow day. Though some customers need to change after 3 to 4 hours, and others can go up to 14 hours (lucky them!). As your period gets lighter, one pair can take you through the day and night (just like regular underwear). But again, everybody Periods differently, so you need to take one cycle to figure out exactly how often you need to change. Start with a conservative estimate on your heavy days, and check in on your Period underwear after 4 hours. If you still feel good, give it another hour. Keep going until you figure out your limit. Here at Period, we find we need between 3 to 4 pairs on the first two heavy days, including evenings. And if you leak, please forgive us! Just this once. (Remember how many tampons you have forgiven). Treat the ‘leak’ as a gift and note the hour of your leakage. That is the best indicator of your ‘flow threshold’ how long the underwear will last for you.

Personal message from soil: I know it’s highly unusual to get a message from soil but in this case, I just had to say thank you. Just by using one pair of Period underwear, you’re saving the natural world from 9 tampons or 4 pads being thrown away and (because they don’t biodegrade) polluting the Earth for generations. From me and all my microbes - thank you.

    Love the side snaps as easy

    Side snaps don’t have to take off shoes as I may be at work as I work in the kitchen and running water makes me have to hurry to bathroom but now I don’t have to worry if I can’t run, as I can switch at work with the side snaps. So thanks as I use for Incontience as your period representative said same product for both period or Incontience and my daughter loved so I tried.

    Love carol

    Love this!

    I was worried about the size and the actual panties working. I was wrong, my turn overs during the night are less stressful for me with these panties!

    Ordered three pairs

    2XL were too large, no 1X available, XL best fit but a bit tight. I like the absorbency, the leg cuts are tight.

    Wheelchair user

    As a wheelchair user, I almost cried when I saw this available. Talk about periods being messy when you can freely walk around and sit up and down but I’m stuck sitting. Regular underwear is a pain to roll down and get off and even worse with a pad. These adaptive period underwear are the best thing I have found on the Internet for my needs a wheelchair user. I understand the complain about the bunched part of the Velcro but because I’m sitting it doesn’t matter to me. Thank you so much for creating a pair of underwear that are purposeful and financially tangible.
