IF you’ve ever had a leak after using a period pad, you are not alone.
It turns out we may have been using the pads all wrong – and there is a way of ensuring your knickers stay pristine.
TikTok user @alisonkoroly uploaded a video after making her discovery.
She showed how you place a pad like normal along the middle of your pants, but then grab a second pad.
You then place this one along the back horizontally to form a T shape, and this acts as a second buffer.
Alison wrote: “You’re telling me I’ve been doing it wrong this whole time.
“I needed this info years ago.”
Her tip has racked up over 60,000 likes, and people thanked her for sharing it online.
One wrote: “so y couldn’t I have seen this like 5 days ago.”
A second added: “I haven’t seen anyone do it like that before.”

However, many people said that night pads or tampons do the job well enough, but a third person commented: “Some of you don’t understand heavy periods. I need this and tampons.”
But one said: “Pads are expensive bro. I can barely afford a single packet.”
