Hi I asked how many of you wear panties daily. And some of you stated that you wear a pad too. I to have worn pads. So lets see how many of you wear or use femme hygiene products and why. For me I wear because of leakage caused by improper catheter insertion during a surgery. I pretty much wear a pad daily depending on how much fluids I drink. But I must admit that sometimes it makes me feel more female. I wear Always infinity or Kotex overnight pads.

No for me, however,
I did try them out a few times but they ended up being more trouble than they were worth.
The small ones held nothing in place and the ones big enough to aid in tucking simply spoiled any attempt to minimize the bulge.

Firstly, thank you to Brenda for having the courage to start this somewhat delicate subject which appears to generate some fairly opposing opinions.
One of my first ever trips outside fully dressed was to the local chemist (pharmacy) to buy a packet of pads. I didn’t have any medical need for them, it just felt like a quintessentially feminine thing to do and a to some extent a test of my ‘passability’. I still remember waiting in line at the checkout, holding the pads in my hand nervously waiting for someone to call me out. But, that never happened, I paid the sales assistant and he gave me a polite, ‘thank you madam’ and I walked home.
I wore those pads for a while and have bought a few packets more over the years – largely to re-live that initial experience and also to have some in my handbag because I feel, as a woman, it’s something I should carry. In a way they make me feel a bit more lady-like, they do keep things cleaner ‘down there’ and their scent is distinctly non-masculine which, to me, is nice but they’re definitely not an essential part of my life.

I buy my own pads and wear them mostly every time I dress up, might as well feel the real deal of dressing up must wear a pad, it feels so sexy and feminine, plus it holds the man part in tight and feel like a female part, just to be clean about it i called it male part and female part

I wear pads or pantiliners on occasion. There are some days that I feel (forgive me) leakier than others. Not usually in a sexual way, more often when I have a cold and a hard sneeze or cough may cause light bladder leaks. Sorry it be gross but that’s life and I’d rather not ruin my underwear

I wear a thin generic pad. Use it so when I tuck back it feels good, holds better, and catches any leaks since tucking back tends to crimp the passage and can cause funny issues with leaking. Also catches any drips after I tinkle. : )

I buy and wear generic thin pads. It helps with my tucking. Throughout my CDing experience, I’ve been hyper-sensitive and it causes some arousal. Fortunately, my hyper-sensitivity has greatly deceased. However, I still ooze a little (sorry if too blunt) and the pad keeps my panty dry and clean.

I love to wear the thick pads and ran acrossed Poise and Tena pads for females. They are the thickest and feel so great in my panties. They’re so helpful to keep my panties dry no matter what!

My use of a pad is different than the other reasons that I’ve been reading.
I use a pad when I’m dressed en.femme as a reminder to take smaller steps when I’m walking and when I sit down to keep my knees together as well as keep my ankles crossed after I am sitting.
Having a pad in my panties makes me feel more feminine and it keeps my panties fresh and stain free

I’m glad that this was one of the questions here, since I had searched the forums for a similar question before and didn’t find anything and was maybe too embarrassed to ask myself. I’ve been thinking about wearing pads when I dress, since I sometimes have leaking issues due to short periods of “excitement”. This isn’t a problem I only have when dressing femme; I also experience it sometimes while dressed in drab, but it seems that the stains are harder to wash out of my panties than they are out of my men’s underwear.
I hope I’m not sharing too much here, but when the topic is sanitary products, it’s hard to avoid talking about bodily fluids! On that note, I did have a period of life where I would occasionally wear pads. Ironically, it was a period when I wasn’t dressing femme at all (not even underdressing). Without going into too much detail, the leaking was from my backside and tended to happen more when I was flying on planes due to the long periods of sitting in uncomfortable positions. It’s then that I found that airplanes, especially those on long international flights, stocked sanitary pads in their bathrooms. Putting a feminine pad in my underwear helped prevent any embarrassing situations of leakage showing through my pants. As I was flying internationally a lot during this period of life, I found myself putting pads in my underwear more and more often, and I also found myself starting to enjoy the prospect of rushing to the plane’s bathroom soon after taking off so I could put a pad in my underwear whether I was having leaking problems or not. I was just enjoying the feminine feeling it gave me. And perhaps this eventually lead into my current “phase” or “era” of dressing and underdressing. I no longer fly internationally as much and doctors helped end my leaking problem, so I stopped wearing pads… but as I mentioned earlier, I’m thinking of going back to it for a different kind of “leak” and maybe just as another way to add to the feminine feelings of me as Brianna.

Only as skid mark preventers, especially if out walking for some time. If i have nothing else available i use a few sheets of loo paper as a liner. I feel much more feminine if i feel clean.

Dr. Ruth! I loved watching Dr. Ruth! We should all thank Dr. Ruth for all that she had to say about ALOT of things. I think she probably made life easier for all of us, as far as different things being “ok”. Whatever floats your boat and definitely…”If it feels good, do it!”

Yes, I wear liners regularly (Always Thin Daily) and at times an Always #5 overnight pad. Not wishing to be too graphic, I wear them primarily out of need.
However the operative word is primarily. I do find a certain contentment in wearing that which is intended for a woman during the event in her life which in so markedly and distinctly female. At this point in my life there is not much possibility for expressing my female essence so wearing liners or pads is “special” for me. And I can do so with complete approval of my wife. Yes, that’s different, yes?
Yes, I do buy my own. I decided if I was going to use them then I would be responsible for purchasing them. And yes, I do suppose it is strange, but I think nothing of it. This is something all woman have to do so sometime in their life, right?
Liners are not a bother to wear, but at times during the day pads can be uncomfortable. And at times, they are, to be sure, but should you research cis-woman’s opinions on pads you will find that most don’t like wearing them because they can become uncomfortable through the day. So when I face this discomfort I find a certain delight that I am in a small way facing a life discomfort in much the same way as our cis-sisters have to endure.
Finally, I don’t understand the idea of not wearing a pad simply because as a trans-woman I don’t have a monthly cycle so why would I wear one? Granted a cis-woman would not probably wear a pad at times when she is not in her cycle. However as a trans-woman I don’t naturally have breasts, but I wouldn’t think of dressing without wearing a bra.

Interesting and valid point that in your last paragraph. I guess that what we wear is our personal choice and if wearing a liner or pad makes you feel closer to your ‘femme side’ then that surely has to be a good thing. Don’t think it would have that effect on me though but then, variety is the spice of life.
Take good care

I don’t want to sound grotesque, but I wear pads to protect my panties from unsightly ‘stains’. I wont elaborate but I heard pads once referred to as ‘fart filters’! I’ll leave it at that. I do wear Depends women’s when I’m away from home for long periods, as my bladder is weak. It’s a pain getting old!

Hi Ladies, this is a delicate subject and I don’t want to offend anyone. I have and do wear sanitary pads, not for any medical reason and obviously not for the reason they are sold, but wearing a sanitary pad (for a few days a month) makes me feel more feminine than I ever feel. At one time I I used an online period calculator to work out my “cycle” but I thought that was perhaps a step too far. I hope I’ve not upset anyone. Tanya.

Ladies, a little absorbency down there is never a bad thing. I’ve met women (plural) who’ve told me that they often wear a liner for this very reason. I’ll let you read between the lines, but it doesn’t always take a menstrual period, c’mon now! 😲

I wear panties every day, and I had a UTI (urinary tract infection) two years ago. Due to high blood sugars. I’m T2 diabetic. I wear Realcare incontinence pads, for both male and female, as I sometimes did not make it to the toilet in time. The pads were a blessing sometimes. The same as well when my Dr changed my medication. It causes me to pee more than normal, every couple of hours, and even having to get up during the night,

Don’t wear them myself. Respectufully, I don’t believe there would be many cis-females using sanitary products on times when they know there will not be a need to wear them. Sure, many females will wear lace and silk lingerie for special ocassions, to feel extra feminine, but I doubt there will be any wearing sanitary items for the same purpose.
Now, don’t look at me like that! I can tell there is a difference and I can see how doing something that only females do (needed or not) would have an appeal to feel more womanly/woman-like.

Yes. Total agreement whith your posting from me. I just can’t see the point of wearing sanitary products designed for hygiene during the menstrual cycle when one does not have a menstrual cycle.
Still, each to their own.
Take care girls

I have no need to wear them…..tried them once but very uncomfortable. As I age it comes necessary when out doors to wear a depends or like brand. Work well, but not something you’d wear with panties. Pantyhose tends to slip down then and go baggy.

Yes. Wearing a pad for continence problems is fine. Fortunately I don’t have this problem but if I needed to wear a pad for continence then I would wear one without issue. Totally different though than wearing products designed specifically for control of a woman’s period when one does not actually have a menstrual cycle.
Take care girls.

I wear panties with pantyliner, Aldays Normal from Always. Reason is I sometimes leak a little after peeing, and my urine is very dark from the iron oxide colouring agent in my Parkinson’s medicine, so the spots are hard to wash out completely.
