Lately my pad at the end of my period has been bothering me. I use tampons in the beginning, but by the last day or so when it's too light to use a tampon but too heavy for nothing, I use Always pads with wings (the regular size, unscented). But lately it seems like the pad is really irritating me down there....I think I change it often enough, but it seems like after even just an hour or so I feel kind of "suffocated" down there and by the end of the day I'm really irritated. Today I had a bit of a smelly discharge along with the irritated feeling (though the discharge and smell was just for a few hours, I am feeling ok now). I don't think it's the specific pad (like the brand or anything) it's just the mere fact of having a moist pad about against my girly parts for any length of time, but this is what I've always done, why am I having issues suddenly? Anyone else experience this?
