How did ancient women use to deal with having periods?
- Anonymous4 weeks agoFavorite Answer
The same way women did until the period between World Wars I and II--with home-made reusable pads or, in truly ancient times, with whatever absorbent material was at hand held on however they could manage. (Plenty of women are returning to the reusable pad, and you can buy them at Etsy in various absorbencies. Most are cotton flannel with an impermeable liner, in cute prints.)
My mom remembers her female relatives joking among themselves about snatching up their husbands' undershirts from the rag bin when they were too ragged to wear. Apparently the cotton wifebeater styles made the best pads.

They would use absorbent materials [moss, fur, cloth ] held in place by a belt of some sort [woven. tied, wrapped].
