My first encounter with period pants was four years ago when I was talking to parents with visually impaired children. I was doing research hoping to prepare my daughter, Ms C, for her first period and wanted to know how other visually impaired children cope with the normal way of putting on sanitary pads. It’s not easy for her especially as she only has less than 50% of her vision left. She was not able to tell if she had applied it correctly or when she should change it. So when one of the mothers told me about period pants, I felt enlightened.
