Can Long Haul Flights Affect Periods? How To Manage Periods On Flight?
Long flights can be tiring and uncomfortable anyways and if it’s long flights with periods, it becomes a bigger nightmare. Ultra small toilets with no space to move around, long queues for the toilet, unpredictable flow add to the discomfort. In this article we will talk about the banes of air travel during periods and tips to deal with it.
The most comfortable place on earth during periods, especially during the high flow days is your own toilet at home. With everything mapped in terms of where the supplies are, how to junk used pads/tampons and how to process stained panties, it’s all set. So how does one manage while on long flights with periods? Well, it helps to be prepared. Carry a small pouch that looks discreet and water-proof, yet accommodates your period supplies like extra pads/tampons and an extra set of Period Panties. You will be surprised by being prepared with this pouch and how easy it becomes to change your pad mid-air. You can even wear a fresh pair of period panties and bring back the soiled ones in the waterproof pouch.
*Please remember to never flush down a pad or tampon. Wrap it up with toilet paper and dispose of it in the bin.

The Flow Is Unpredictable
