I had an incident where my leakage exceeded the capacity of my pad and I had some leakage onto my trousers, though my plastic pants mostly contained it. I couldn’t get to a toilet due to being stuck in a huge queue at a train station and it was very uncomfortable and stressful. Should I move up to a more absorbent pad or just treat it as a one off and see how I go? I use shaped pads with an 800ml capacity and they’re usually fine.
I used to use pads and had the same problem on many occasions.
I now use (and wou will probebly not like this) adult nappies. But….. Dont be scared!!!
I use ID Slip nappies the normal and plus ones so thin they are impossible to notice you have one on. All I would say is go for the plastic backed ones as the cotton feel tapes are just crap.
Hope that helps 🙂
