Having a period and working

Some women work when they are having a period.   It is safe to do so.

We advise you to use sponges. Please do not use rolls of baby wipes as that can cause an infection called Bacterial Vaginosis (BV).

Some women like to use coloured condoms as the coloured latex does not show blood in the same way as the ordinary condoms.  Other women like to use female condoms.

We give out free condoms if we see you in our clinics or at your place of work. You can also get them free from sexual health clinics, some GP surgeries.
You can buy them at some supermarkets, pharmacies, or order them from Pasante.
