We often receive questions about how to support women with Down syndrome in being more independent with menstrual hygiene management. Period underwear is helpful for some women. It can be used in place of tampons/pads or can be used with those products to provide extra protection. This article from Wirecutter provides reviews of several brands of period underwear. Byrdie also has an article with additional information on period underwear.

Stay tuned! We are working on several resources on menstruation in women with Down syndrome. They will be available in the new year.
