What's a pantiliner?

You've probably seen that there are pads of all shapes and sizes — even some with "wings"! In general, you choose a pad based on how much menstrual flow you're having. Pantiliners are the smallest and thinnest. They would be OK to wear on a day that you had very light flow. Some girls wear pantiliners around the time they expect to get their period so they don't stain their clothing when it comes.
