WIN 1 of 3 Kotex hampers valued at R850 each



Choosing the right pad for your flow is sometimes a challenge for many women because there are just so many choices, absorbencies and types available. Kotex is shedding some light on choosing the right Pad or Tampon for you.

What is important to remember is that each and every woman is different. No woman experiences their period the same and because of this it is important for a woman to listen to her body and take note of her own flow. Some women may also find that their flow increases while they sleep. All of these elements will have an effect on choosing the type of Pad or Tampon that best suits you.
