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.

Message from an Oak Tree: Hellooo. I’m a 100 year old oak tree. I live near a landfill and 80 years ago, I saw a tampon get thrown away. Guess what? It’s still there! Still decomposing! I can’t believe it. All the pads and tampons that people have thrown away are all there. And it’s so gross! I used to look out at fields and meadows and woodland. And now I just see decomposing bad products that will taken another hundred years to degrade. I have to confess, I started to lose a little faith in humans. Then you came along. Just by wearing one pair of Period just once, you’ve stopped 2 pads or 4 tampons from being in my eye line. Thank you!
