Menstrual hygiene products: A practice evaluation

DETERMINANTS OF TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION


A study from France involving self-reporting by 1153 patients concerning the products they used, the factors determining their choices, knowledge of potential risks and sources of information. Disposable sanitary pads were preferred by 81% of patients, menstrual tampons 45.6%. Newer products were less frequently preferred: washable sanitary pads (4.4%) menstrual panties (1.7%) and menstrual cups (9.4%). However, among those (8.1%) who had recently changed, these products were most popular because they were considered more ecological and less harmful to health. 81.8% considered hygiene products as a health risk. Only 13.6% said they had discussed with a health professional yet 91.2% wanted more information.
