How do YooTime work?
Each underwear of YooTime is made with our unique leak-resistant technology to #Free Your Lady Time. It can be worn alone to replace liners, pads, tampons, cups or with tampon or a cup for extra protection.
We added 4 layers for an ultimate protection:
- The 1st layer to make you Feel Dry and Fresh with a moisture-wicking, skin-friendly fabric inner layer with anti-microbial for softness and breathability, also fighting bacteria, odors and be stain resistant.
- The 2nd layer to make you Feel Secure with an absorbent fabric holds 1 to 5 tampons' worth and locks the blood.
- The 3rd layer to make you Feel Free with a leak-resistant layer to keep it all in.
- And the 4th layer to make you Feel Comfort and Stylish with normal fabrics and different colors like your regular undies.
But, no worries. YooTime still look like your regular undies with no bulky.

Can I wear YooTime all day?
Depending on your flow and the different absorbency, dear. You can wear light absorbent ones alone at the beginning or end of your cycle, moderate and heavy ones on your heavier days and nights. Or if you wear YooTime with a tampon or cup as back-up, it'll be easier to wear YooTime all day.
CAN I WEAR PERIOD UNDERWEAR BY ITSELF / WITHOUT ADDITIONAL PROTECTION?
Depending on your flow, period underwear can be a total replacement for disposable menstrual hygiene products (panty liners, pads, tampons) OR can work in conjunction with them. It’s all about knowing your flow, and which absorbency level suits you best.
HOW MANY PAIRS OF PERIOD UNDERWEAR DO I NEED?
This depends on whether you use them by themselves or in conjunction with other menstrual hygiene products, and how often you change them. If you go through a few pairs a day, you may want to get enough to last you a few days. If you are able to wash them about every second day, you can cut down on the number of pairs you'll need.
Can I use them for bladder leaks?
Yes, that’s why we say YooTime is so versatile! They can be used for periods, post-partum, bladder incontinence, and bladder leaks.
CAN THEY BE USED FOR POSTPARTUM BLEEDING?
Yes, but the amount of blood loss post-birth can vary greatly from person to person. We suggest you purchase the Heavy absorbency underwear and use them as backup in that first week post-birth. Then you may be able to use them on their own ongoing. They won't go to waste of course, as you can keep them and use for your periods once they return.
WILL THEY FEEL DIFFERENT FROM MY REGULAR UNDERWEAR?
The gussets are just a little thicker than regular underwear, so they will feel only slightly different.
HOW DO I WASH MY PERIOD UNDERWEAR?
Period underwear can be hand washed or machine washed. Rinsing soiled undies in cold water before hand/machine washing helps to remove as much blood as possible and prevent stains. You can then toss them into the washing machine, run a gentle cycle with cold water, and hang to dry.
HOW LONG CAN PERIOD UNDERWEAR LAST?
The lifespan of a pair of period undies vary greatly according to how they are cared for and how often they are used. Generally, they will last for 6 months to 2 years, and this is dependent on the wash and care. Underwear is considered a delicate product, so the elastic and thread may get damaged with wear and tear. However, this will not impact the effectiveness of the absorbency built into the gusset.
Is YooTime hygienic?
Absolutely. The built-in protective panel has natural antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, due to the way in which the blood is locked and prevents further microbe growth, so you will feel fresh at all times.
Are period panties sanitary?
Yes, period panties are sanitary. They are created with antimicrobial materials to ensure they are safe and clean for women to wear during menstruation.
How is YooTime different from other brands?
