Use
Why is Mme L'Ovary unique?
Each Mme L'Ovary daytime panty includes 3 removable pads that allow you to use the same panties all day long while staying dry. We can change the removable pads as the day progresses, according to our "flow". In other words, 1 Mme L'Ovary daytime panty is equivalent to 3 menstrual panties from another brand. It is a practical and economic advantage signed Mme L'Ovary.

How do I wash and take care of my Mme L'Ovary?

Mme L'Ovary washes like normal panties, except that you have to do 1 more step: rinse with cold water. It's as simple as that! See the maintenance guide for more details.
What about the smell?
Strong odours are produced when blood comes into contact with synthetic materials such as plastic. The chemical reaction between our blood and the chemical components contained in sanitary pads or tampons is therefore responsible for the sometimes strong or unpleasant odours. It's especially important not to associate our menstrual blood with smelly & embarrassing waste! When blood comes into contact with natural fibres such as cotton,the smell that emanates from it is much more soft and neutral. We can therefore conclude that odours are not to be feared when wearing Mme L'Ovary.
Should the panties be washed before the first use?
Yes, it is always preferable, due to the handling of underwear when making and placing them in the carrier bags.
If I already use the menstrual cup, do I need Mme L'Ovary?
Yes, absolutely. Mme L'Ovary is the cup's best friend: an ideal COMPLEMENT (or outright replacement!) Our panties allow you to choose the times when you want to let the natural blood flow out, without having a "foreign object" that retains blood inside (which can have a liberating effect and even help reduce menstrual cramps). In addition, even if you wear the cup continuously, it is favourable to have an alternative for the night (and give a "break" to your body). According to Health Canada and several gynecologists, the menstrual cup should not remain inside the vagina for more than 4 to 6 hours. Something to think about!

Can Mme L'Ovary panties be used for incontinence or minor bladder incidents?
Mme L'Ovary underwear can be used in case of mild incontinence (for any small oops!). It is not recommended for severe incontinence.
Can I use them if I have a heavy flow?
Yes! Mme L'Ovary panties are designed for all types of flows. The difference is that people who have heavy flows will change their removable pads more often than people with moderate or light flow. We offer maxi pads for those who wish to add more protection during their heavier days. Mme L'Ovary is a personal tool. Everyone has to learn how to use it according to their flow and lifestyle for optimal comfort.
Is it effective for postpartum?

Yes! Depending on your flow.

First days of postpartum: the flow can be very heavy. Two options are then available to you:

After a few days: the flow should be more moderate.

It is then possible to use the menstrual daytime panties, which come with three removable pads (equivalent to absorption of a regular pad). You will be able to change pads to the rhythm of your flow and your comfort!

For the night, nighttime menstrual panties with protection included allow you to last long hours without having to change. (absorption equivalent of a Maxi pad)

The Highty and the Highty Nighty:the elastic being placed higher on these models, it will not press on your scar. The Lace sOn this model, the elastic is placed higher and is softer.

How many panties will I need to cover my cycle?

The best answer is: It depends....

What is the lifespan of my Mme L'Ovary panties?
They have the same lifespan as your "normal" panties but the difference is that you will wear them once a month (or maybe twice if you wear them twice in the same week). Hand washing increases their lifespan. If you take good care of them, they should be effective for several years!
Is Mme L'Ovary made of organic cotton?
We offer removable pads made of 100% organic cotton,they are not dyed and are made especially for people who do not tolerate dyeing. We pay close attention to the fabrics we use for manufacuring. A 100% organic panty would have a higher cost and our goal is to make it accessible to as many people as possible. That's why L'Ovary is not made of organic cotton at the moment but we are open to offering it in the future!
Do your fabrics contain silver nanoparticles?
No, we have chosen to not use chemical processes for treating tissues with metal nanoparticles. Unlike other brands of menstrual panties, we prefer to avoid these processes because there are no studies yet that prove that there is no danger to the health of users.
I have sensitive skin and problems related to dark fabrics. What are the panties made of? Are they going to irritate me?
The panties are made of 94% cotton and 6% lycra. For people who are very sensitive and have problems with irritation related to dyes in underwear, we offer the choice of our 100% organic cotton removable pads made without dye.
Where are they made? Is it from Quebec?
Mme L'Ovary is a Quebec initiative with a commitment ECO-RESPONSIBLE and ETHICAL. We design everything in Quebec, and then we go to the city of Medellin in Colombia (nicknamed the "capital of panties" due to the expertise of its seamstresses!), for the manufacturing that is managed and supervised by ourselves on site, in a workshop that meets ethical, social, and environmental standards. In addition, the fabrics used are made in Colombia directly.
How much can the panties and pad absorb compared to a tampon or a sanitary pad?
Each Mme L'Ovary removable pad that fits into the panties absorbs as much as a regular sanitary pad. Worn alone, the panties also have an absorption capacity that is the equivalent of a panty liner,which adds extra protection.
What makes the panties so absorbent?
We used different types of fabrics in a precise order and design in order to create maximum absorption while being leakproof. Our panties are made with fleece cotton, PUL (a material also used in washable baby diapers) and a anti-leak fabric.DAY: The daytime panties have a built-in protection that is the equivalent of a panty liner. However, the pouch inside the panties allows you to add removable pads and thus increase the level of protection to the equivalent of a MAXI sanitary pad. You can change the sanitary removable pads as the day progresses. NIGHT: The nighttime panties can be used alone, as is. The absorbent fabrics are sewn directly inside the panties. The absorption surface is larger and protects you both behind and in front. Whether you sleep on your back or on your stomach, you can sleep on both sides... It absorbs the equivalent of a MAXI sanitary pad. Head to our HOW DOES IT WORKpage? To learn more about the use and components of our products.
