The period sleep gap crisis 

Shop WUKA Boxer Period Pants

Ever heard of the period sleep gap? It is hardly spoken about, even though it affects so many people. Basically, it is the hours of sleep lost due to periods, whether it's getting up in the night to change or adjust your period product (we’re talking about you, leaky single use tampons and pads!), waking up in a wet patch, painful period cramps or hormones causing body temperature shifts. In fact because of reasons like this, menstruating women and people with periods lose about 5 months worth of sleep across their lifetimes! Despite not being spoken about often, 71% of females have poor sleep quality due to menstruation.

Losing sleep has emotional consequences like increased irritability, less empathy, lower patience, and slower thinking. On top of that, long term sleep deprivation heightens the risk of diseases. Unfortunately, period stigmas make it more difficult for people to get help with more than a third of women who menstruate being ashamed to discuss their period. If you feel you are struggling with your period, it's important to go to the GP or Gynaecologist to get the help you need. If you want to learn more about the period sleep gap give this a read. 

At WUKA, we knew that the period sleep gap needed to be addressed asap because everyone deserves to have a crucial good night's sleep. Enter, WUKA Overnight Period Pants. These beauties are specially designed for night time wear, so that you can sleep with more ease even if you have a heavy flow, PCOS symptoms, postpartum bleeding or light incontinence.

Can you sleep without a pad on your period? 

If you are on your period, it is best to sleep with a period product to absorb your flow. Using a disposable pad is not a good option as pads can move about whilst you sleep, causing leaks, constant readjusting and discomfort. Wear WUKA Overnight Period Pants for a leak-free night without the hassle. 

Why should I choose Overnight period pants over normal period pants?

WUKA Overnight Period Pants are designed specifically for sleeping on your period, even if you have a heavy flow. They provide the extra coverage, comfort and leakproof protection that you need at bedtime. You can wear them all night long without worrying about leaks on the sheets. 

Which period pants style is suitable to wear at night? 

WUKA provides period pants in many different flow and style options - if you have periods there is definitely something for you. The best period pants to wear for sleep, especially if you have a heavy period, are WUKA Overnight Period Pants as they absorb the equivalent of 6 disposable pads and have a super absorbent gusset that extends all the way to the back.

How to sleep comfortably on periods? 

To sleep comfortably on your period, you should wear leakproof protection, that doesn't need readjusting and is comfortable, like WUKA Overnight Period Pants. Also to soothe period pain, we recommend applying heat to your tummy using a WUKA Wearable Hot Water Bottle and sleeping in the fetal position which takes pressure off of your abdominal muscles.

Does WUKA Overnight have full coverage at the back and sides?

Yes. There is a wide super absorbent layer that goes all the way to the back protecting you from leaks even when you are laying down or moving around in your sleep. 

How to sleep on your period to prevent leaking? 

With WUKA Overnight, you can sleep easy knowing that you are fully protected from leaks. There is no need to sleep in certain positions or readjust.

Does your period affect sleeping? 

Periods can have a huge impact on your sleep. A way to improve sleep quality during your period is wearing WUKA Overnight Period Pants as they offer leakproof full coverage whilst providing comfort. 

What are comfortable positions to sleep in on your period?

When wearing WUKA Overnight Period Pants, you are protected from leaks no matter the position you sleep in. Sleeping in the fetal position can help to take pressure off of your abdominal muscles, helping to relieve period cramps. 

How to sleep when you have a heavy period?
