Embarrassing? (Ladies opinion) - page 2
Okay this is a lil embarrassing but it has been on my mind. I decided to post this in the nursing section with students who are already in the program. I am applying to nursing school right now and at my community college the... Read More

Also, you can wear leggings or something underneath your pants for extra protection. I always wore leggings underneath the white pants since I didn't want anyone to see my undies anyway. :P Same concept, different reason.

After baby number 2 I had literally no bladder control for a week. They will hold a full bladder worth of urine so im sure they will work for that time of month. They do not feel bulky as nd are comfortable. During my clinicals when I wore all white as well I used.the tampon/pad combo. I was on seasonique though and only had that bad week once a semester.

What I found works the best for me is a menstrual cup (diva/moon cup/lunette/etc)...it holds much more than a tampon and is cheaper than continuing to purchase tampons every month (more eco friendly, as well, if you're concerned about that). On my heavy days I also wear a panty liner if I know/suspect I may not be able to get to the bathroom when needed, but even so it very rarely leaks...I love it and would never even consider going back to tampons!

Get good ones and check that they hide-- instead of show off-- your pantyliners!
You don't want anyone to see your pad when you bend over!
I wore a flesh colored slimmer. It kept the pad in place better, was an extra layer and it was heavier than regular bloomers so the stark white pad wasn't obvious.
No woman should be forced to wear white pants.
It's almost cruel!
- 1Jan 21, '13 by lalomkenYou haven't gotten in the program yet and you're worried about that? Haha you sound like me! I worried about anything and everything before I got into nursing school. First off, I ne'er understood why nursing school scrubs would be white! But, as everyone else said, def double up. You will be busy in clinical but should have enough time for quick bathroom runs-take advantage of them to change your feminine products. Best of luck!
