I really liked these period pads by RIO a lot. It was very comfortable. It was the same as I had imagined. These sanitary pads are broad, long, wide, soft, and long-lasting too. It gave me no problems. I will give 5 stars to this pad.

Just like I imagined! 5 stars!

This one was quite smooth, and soft. The feeling was good, comfortable. I thought the blue line was there because it could soak more. It was a nice feeling. Not ‘on periods’ feeling. I think sanitary pads brand absorbs more. I would like to recommend this as the best pads for periods in India.

Didn’t ‘feel’ the period!

No leakage, the upper layer is very soft, and smooth and works for a longer period of time. I change my current pad 6-7 times while with RIO sanitary pads, I change only 4-5 times. The blue part that I liked I feel is absorbing more, no leakage at all. These are the best pads for periods.

Lasts really long!

Yeh period pads bilkul bhi uncomfortable nahi hai, ekdum lightweight hai aur theek se mere clots absorb karta hai. Mujhe malum hi nahi pada ki clots waha hai. Wo joh chip chipa tha woh poora absorb kar liya. Real mein mujhe bathroom mein jane ki wapas jarurat nahi padi. RIO is one of the best sanitary pads brands in India.

No need to go to the bathroom!

Have any questions? Look for answers below


Are heavy flow pads uncomfortable?

Not for those who need them! Heavy flow pads are built to help women dealing with conditions such as PCOS, menopause or endometriosis that cause more than normal amounts of blood to be expelled by the body during a period. These women require thicker, longer pads with greater absorbency to stay leak- and stain-free.


What are Flow Guards?

Our R & D has indicated that dips along the length of the pad can cause liquid to trickle down the inner thigh. Our raised flow guards, made of hydrophobic or water-repulsive sheets, forms a barricade against this locking in any possible leaks.


Do I need a heavy flow pad?

Are you having to change your pad every two to three hours? Are you constantly afraid of staining and leakage due to pads overflowing? Does your flow feel extremely heavy with the presence of huge, coin-sized clots? You could be suffering from heavy flow and should switch over to a specialised pad.


What is RIO?

RIO is the first Indian sanitary pad for heavy flow period. RIO Pads have been specially designed keeping in mind the needs of women suffering from heavy flow periods.
